Hello, Hollywood? Are you listening? Well you should be! I’m no movie expert but I do have a vivid imagination while I’m reading and I happen to think these books would do very well on screen! I’m not saying that I won’t shame you if you mess it up, but I’ll pay the admission at least once. Not convincing? I agree! LOL But maybe take a second look at these anyway 🙂
THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern
THIS!!! Her writing was flawless – I’ve never said that about an author before (ok maybe J.K.R.) but it’s so true in this case. I can visualize everything from beginning to end and it’s so strange, weird, beautiful, intense, and everything in between. I want to see the clock in motion, the tents, the displays, and the magic. This needs to happen!!
THE ILLUMINAE FILES by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
I think I would faint from excitement if these books ever came to the big screen!! The format of this book makes it so easy to transfer to a movie – it is set out like a case file in the sequence of the events, and from different perspectives and locations. The books were action packed and would be so interesting to watch!
DARK MATTER by Blake Crouch
This one might be difficult, but if done well, this could have a huge chance to make an impact! So many opportunities to visualize the world in so many different ways. But most of all, what would make this movie unique, is it would give the actors and actresses a chance to be completely different people throughout the movie. Don’t know what I’m talking about? GO READ IT!!
A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS by Paul Tremblay
Horror movie makers – here’s your chance! I read this one so long ago but I still think of it quite often and wonder what was real and what wasn’t. This one had so many unexpected twists and turns. There was also a change in timeline that amplified my confusion. I would watch this one on repeat!!!!!
I have a few more that I want to add to the list but I think that I will do a continuation of this post every few months as I find books I’ve loved and wish I could visualize.
Before doing this post, I checked to see if any of these books were listed on the IMDB web site. Believe it or not, all of them were listed but there weren’t any dates, pictures, actors, or crew associated with it. If I’m not mistaken, that happens when the rights to a movie have been purchased but nothing has officially started yet. So I guess that means that there’s a chance?!?! I can hope!
Is there a book that you would really love to see as a movie?
Until next time, happy reading!
