Books I Want to See as TV Shows| Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!

It has been FOREVER since I did a Top 5 Wednesday; I miss it. But, alas, T5W is still on a hiatus, so no new topics; I’ll be revisiting an old one today!

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E Pearson

I read this series during the summer and it quickly became a favourite. I would die for a tv show of it! There’s so many elements to the story, it would be SO good as a tv show.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I know this show is actually in development but it isn’t out and there hasn’t been any updates in a while! I neeeeeeeed this show! If done right it could be absolutely incredible.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

I’m pretty sure everyone knows how bad the film adaptations of PJ are. Does not do the books an ounce of justice. Rick Riordan is a GENIUS. The story is amazing. In my opinion: there’s just too much for a film, it would work so much better as a TV show! If done right, with a good writer and a good cast, it could be insanely good; I wish this would happen!

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

This series is so incredible, it needs an adaptation ASAP. I think it would make such a fun, entertaining TV show!

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’m not the biggest Evelyn Hugo lover. *gasp*
The story is interesting enough, I just honestly think it would work better in a visual format. It reads like it should be a documentary. I think it would work so well as a TV show, in the style of a documentary!

  1. Not TV shows per se, but I would love to see The Perfect Girlfriend (Karen Hamilton), The Woman in the Window (AJ Finn), and The Wife Between Us (Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen) as movies. Woman in the Window is in development, I think, so that’s exciting.

  3. I’m pretty sure Evelyn Hugo has been optioned, so I’d be interested to see how they approach it. Although, I don’t hold high hopes as it is with Freeform (who did Shadowhunters and that adaption was a complete no for me).
    Also, Y E S to the Raven Boys. It feels ages since we’ve had an update. I really hope production moves forward.

  4. Some brilliant choices here! I’m really shocked there hasn’t been an attempt at a good Percy Jackson TV show yet, there’s defintley a market for it and so many people want it.
