Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Should Be Adapted Into Netflix Shows/Movies

Happy Tuesday! What’s everybody up to this week? My schedule is in absolute chaos right now because the two groups of students I teach (at the same school, mind you) have completely different semester schedules and because of the whole COVID situation and what not (*gestures vaguely at everything*), the next few weeks are going to be extra chaotic while they shuffle people around to fill empty spaces before we finally settle into an actual schedule in the middle of September. Complicated, right? I can’t even describe it, but I’m getting my schedule essentially day by day.

Oh man, I’ve been slacking at TTTs but this prompt is too good to miss! I’ve also made some graphics to go along with some of my favorites. If you’re unfamiliar with Top Ten Tuesday, its a series of prompts hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!

1. The Last Sun/The Tarot Sequence by KD Edwards

This series has the perfect makings for a great show! We’ve got action, fantasy, romance, and an incredible and diverse cast of fun, lovable characters. The found family trope is one of my favorites in media and this series is a great example of it. If you haven’t heard me yelling about this series yet, please check out my other Top Ten Tuesday post with reasons on why I love it.

2. Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim

This would be a great movie! This duology is a genderbent retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo. The set would be absolutely gorgeous in this vibrant world Sim creates and I’d love to see the party scenes recreated on the big screen. The second book, Ravage the Dark, is expected to be published March 2021.

3. A Delicate Deception by Cat Sebastian

Give me this book as the soft queer historical romance movie that I need to get me through lonely and cold winter nights. This could be the next Pride and Prejudice, ok? Trust me on this one.

4. The Young Elites by Marie Lu

This would be an absolutely epic movie series! The scene at the end of The Rose Society?! I’m screaming. Can you imagine.. The flames. The ships. Enzo and Raffaele. Enzo and Raffaele. I binged this series in February and you can check out my review in my wrap-up here with links to my individual Goodreads reviews.

5. Soulbound by Hailey Turner

This series would adapt so well into a series of movies/long episodes! Plenty of action and magic fights that would be so exciting. I’d also love to see (spoilers ahead, highlight to see):

Wade turn into a dragon and fly through the streets of NYC, and all the were animals running through the subway tunnels at the end of the second book.

6. Whyborne and Griffin by Jordan L Hawk

Can!! You!! Even!! Imagine!! I want this as a never ending series, please. Please. The romance between Whyborne and Griffin is just so tender, and the magical action scenes would be incredible with the right special effects!

7. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

This July release would make the perfect creepy Netflix mini-series. Think Stranger Things x Riverdale in the countryside vibes with an equally killer soundtrack. I’d watch the heck out of that.

8. The Affair of the Mysterious Letter by Alexis Hall

This hilarious, wacky fantasy Sherlock Holmes retelling featuring a pansexual lady Holmes and a gay trans Watson would be absolutely incredible as a movie!

9. Proper English and Think of England by KJ Charles

Countryside murder manor mystery! Secret lesbians! Enough said.

10. Red White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

Give me the late night phone calls and pining on the big screen. Give it to me.

What series would you like to see as shows or movies? Let me know! You can find me on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads) or drop me a comment below.

With love, Pei

  1. All of these are great choices!!! I especially need the Tarot Sequence, Soulbound, and Whyborne & Griffin to all be turned into tv shows or movies!!!!

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Tarot Sequence TV Kickstarter when? I think it’s one of those series that would work as an animation too, because I LOVED the big flashy magic scenes in an urban environment, and, well, budget.

    I really need to read Proper English sometime soon, it seems so much fun
