It’s Wednesday and that means one thing, time for another Top Five Wednesday. This week the theme is the five books you want to see as TV shows. There are so many books that have been adapted into films that don’t have any details at all. TV shows are so much better – as long as they stick with the plot!
For those of you don’t know: Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme officiated all the way back in November 2013 by Lainey (gingerreadslainey on youtube) in which a new topic is selected for every wednesday of the year – usually related to book.
Now, shall we get started?
Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
This sort of book I could see as being adapted as web series by a group of fans who also act. But any way. It’s a coming of age book that just suits so many people, especially fangirls. They get to see life in a college/university setting as well as having a relatable character who isn’t doing anything too dramatic or unrealistic!
Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas
If this was adapted into a film so much detail and character development would be lost, so getting a tv show (that sticks to the plot) will allow us to live almost every single detail of this glorious series.
The Chaos Walking Trilogy, by Patrick Ness
A really underrated series that could only be explored in loads of detail in a TV show. Yes, it’d probably have a lower budget than a film but they’d still be able to pull off the thoughts excellently and, hopefully, it wouldn’t be too cheesy either.
Between Shades of Grey, by Ruta Sepetys
A era of history that so few people know things about because others during the time seemed to suffer more. By adapting this into a tv show, it’d educate so many as well as destroying their souls in the best possible way.
The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer
This would need a bigger budget but it’s the sort of show that could take over when Doctor Who isn’t on. Everyone loves a good bit sci fi and a retelling of fairytales will just tick all the boxes for a good tv show. Don’t you agree?
