This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:
Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies
The Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) series by Kelly Thompson
I love Kate Bishop! I think this would make a great series. Lots of action, lots of fun, and funny lines!
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (and the other books in the Dimple and Rishi universe – There’s Something about Sweetie and 10 Things I Hate About Pinky)
Her stories are so much fun to read. And her characters are relatable – yes, even though I’m definitely way older than the target audience range.
Also, in that frame of mind, please also, someone make a TV show about all the characters in Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date series! The Wedding Party is the third book.
The Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley
This would make for such a cute detective series. Apparently it has been picked up for adaptation?
The Poppy War series by R.F. Kuang
The third and final book in this exciting series is coming out later this year (yay!). And I reckon this would be an amazing….well…I tend to watch TV more than movies but this feels like it would do better as a movie (or movies), there are epic naval battles that I would love to see on the big screen.
The Monstress series by Marjoie Liu, illustrated by Sana Takeda
This magnificent comic series would be impossible to turn into a regular TV series but I think an animated series would be amazing! Or even a video game….
The Wild Robot series by Peter Brown
I think this would make for a great family-friendly movie!
The Murderbot Diaries series by Martha Wells
I am dying to see a Murderbot TV show. Then again I wonder if it would be easier to do an animated show.
Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa
As I was scrolling through my Read list on Goodreads, I thought of this sweet book and was wondering if this was something that was adapted. Turns it out was (here’s the IMDB page with a trailer) and it looks as sweet (and full of yummy dorayaki) as the book.
Also, if you’re interested, I wrote about this book and about making dorayaki here.
Sidekick Squad series by C.B. Lee
This YA series would make a great TV series. A world where superpowers are common, but the main character is a teen with no superpowers – although her family does.
