So who’s going to be the one to tell networks that they should employ readers to suggest titles to adapt? Because I think someone should tell them – to do that 😂 As usual – Top 5 Tuesday is now hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads (this month has some EXCELLENT topics so definitely go look and see if you want to join in!) Go look at which books she’d want to be adapted into a movie!
Michigan vs the Boys by Carrie S. Allen – After the success of Moxie, I definitely think we’re due for another highly, very feministic movie. Or maybe that’s just me. I really liked this book – finished it a bit ago (yes, review will be coming soon 😅). I don’t really like sports a lot, but this was really cool because I like hockey. Ice hockey seems to be really fast and I do prefer fast-paced sports – played a bit of field hockey in school and although I wasn’t the best, I really loved it. Michigan is a very strong character and I’d love for like a teen actor to play her and also be strong. Also, who needs another sports movie centered on boys? Like seriously!
The Extraordinaires by T.J. Klune – We already know superhero movies do well and I think this will be a good adaptation for this! A lot of the teen superhero movies tend to be more darker? Shazam is sort of an outlier because he transforms into an adult when he uses his powers (which isn’t a spoiler, since it’s in the trailer). The Extraordinaries has definitely a lighter tone that has been proven can work for a superhero movie!
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas – Why YES I’m here to speak again about this book 😂 Ok, but like SERIOUSLY, wouldn’t this be an AMAZING movie? You see, these are the type of titles we should be adapting and creating!
How To Be Remy Cameron by Julian Winters – I wanted to put all his books here but coming-of-age stories do so fantastically well and I think this would be amazing to see on film. That being said, if they adapt this, they had better adapt Julian’s other books!
Fable by Adrienne Young – Please get this movie made right now 😭 it’s such a fantastic adventure movie AND on the sea so whatever impressive sea/water effects experts can make – here’s your chance!! Like seriously, if I got news Fable would be adapted you BETTER BET I’d be clinging to every single news. And hoping that they don’t pick like… Bella Thorne for Fable 😂 I’m sorry, I just don’t like her!
There could definitely be more titles on here! Some titles I was thinking of putting here, but then I realised ‘No, this should definitely be on the series list’ (which is next week). What titles would you put on here? What are some books you’d love to be adapted?
