Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Should Be A T.V. Show

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s is Page to Screen Freebie. My topic is:


Books That Should Be Turned Into a TV Show

1. Nine Minutes Trilogy by Beth Flynn

If done well, this could be the next “Sons of Anarchy“.

2. Addicted / Calloway Sisters Series by Krista & Becca Ritchie

I was thinking this series of books would be a great Dynasty or Dallas type show for the era with all of the family and related characters.

3. Fallen Crest High Series by Tijan

I can just see this book as the next teenage drama on a channel like Freeform or NetFlix.

4. The Forge Trilogy by Meghan March

For some reason I picture this as one of those old school mini series they had back in the 80’s and 90’s.

5. The Blue Line Duet & The Perfect Duet by Meghan Quinn

I could totally see these four books adapted for a military drama.

6. Sea Breeze Series by Abbi Glines

Remember back in the day when popular TV shows would have a beachy summer season? What? You’re too young to remember that? Well, that’s how I imagine the Sea Breeze series. I can imagine it make a great summer series with all the books mixed together into a season.

7. Stone Cold Fox Trilogy by Max Monroe

Stone Cold Fox would make a great small town cop drama show.

8. The Legal Briefs by Emma Chase

I’m imaging the Legal Briefs as a drama / comedy. It would be such a fun legal show.

9. The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I’m not into science fiction shows, but I would totally watch if this was one.

10. Thunder Road Series by Katie McGarry

This is another teenage drama I would be watching if it existed.

  1. I haven’t heard of or read most of these books, but I’m totally on board with a show based on Illuminae! Why hasn’t this become a thing yet? I’d be curious if they do some sort of experimental film format to match the way the book is presented (the formatting itself is an experience) and how that would be approached, if at all. It definitely leaves it open for some interesting interpretations!

    Here’s my TTT post.

  2. I would love to see Addicted/Calloway sisters as a TV show! There’s too much story to tell for it to be made into a movie, but I can definitely see it being a Netflix TV series that you can binge watch.

  3. The Thunder Road series would be an epic TV show, but they would have to get the casting right cause I’m so protective of those characters haha.

  4. I think both Sea Breeze and Rosemary Beach could be great TV series. There’s plenty of beautiful people and drama to qualify it for the CW .

  5. I’m sure I remember reading somewhere that they’re doing Illuminae. I think it was a movie rather than a TV show but still something to look forward to it if it ever gets made. So many rights get bought and never go anywhere.

    • It’s always disappointing to hear something that was optioned has fallen apart. I was really hoping CoHo’s Ugly Love would work out, but that one didn’t.

    • Yay!
      You really should read Nine Minutes if you liked SoA. It’s got the biker gang thing going strong and you’ll be pulled into the world.

  6. Agreed about the Addicted series! It would make for fun show kinda like The Bold Type! I also think Lauren Layne’s books would make for cute rom-coms!

    • You really should — especially if you have watched Sons of Anarchy and enjoyed it. I think it reminds me of that a bit.
