TOP TEN TUESDAY IS A WEEKLY FEATURE HOSTED BY THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH! EACH WEEK, A NEW TOPIC IS PUT INTO PLACE AND BLOGGERS SHARE THEIR TOP TEN (OR YOUR OWN AMOUNT) ACCORDINGLY.
Ink and Bone
I would literally give anything to see Ink and Bone as a T.V. show (for some reason, I would prefer it to be on Netflix) I have SO many ideas of who I would like to play each character. (Aside from Khalila, I don’t have a definitive FC for her yet)
The Song of Achilles
Out of all the books on my list, TSOA, I think, is the only one which has been optioned for a possible mini-series and I’m so excited!! The producers of BBC’s Peaky Blinders has the rights to it and I so hope it happens soon because I love TSOA.
While I wasn’t a huge fan of book two, the whole concept and plot of Demon Road is something I would love to see on TV. Similar in the style of Supernatural, maybe?
The Name of the Star
I was super interested in Jack the Ripper when I was 15 for some reason and so TNOTS is something I could definitely see as a BBC programme.
Seven Ways We Lie
I wasn’t sure if this had rights for TV because I remember Riley mentioning something about. So I check and it does!!! It’s currently in development since June 2016. The producer has worked on a load of other films, Ella Enchanted being one of them.
PLEASE, I WANT RADIO SILENCE AS A SHOW SO BAD. I CAN TELL IT WOULD BE SO CUTE AND ADORABLE AND AMAZING.
The Foxhole Court
Someone, anyone, please send millions of copies of TFC to Netflix HQ, thank you.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
Somewhere within our crowded sky, a crew of wormhole builders hops from planet to planet, on their way to the job of a lifetime. To the galaxy at large, humanity is a minor species, and one patched-up construction vessel is a mere speck on the starchart. This is an everyday sort of ship, just trying to get from here to there.
But all voyages leave their mark, and even the most ordinary of people have stories worth telling. A young Martian woman, hoping the vastness of space will put some distance between herself and the life she‘s left behind. An alien pilot, navigating life without her own kind. A pacifist captain, awaiting the return of a loved one at war.
ImAGINE THIS AS A SHOW. IMAGINE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WOULD BE.
The Darren Shan Saga
I’m going to pretend that the mess that was the Cirque Du Freak movie didn’t happen. I had put myself all through that mess just for the story and Josh Hutcherson. And they completely ruined the story! So I would love to see a TV where they didn’t replace a Debbie with a silly monkey girl.
Thief is one of my favourite Malorie Blackman novels, but I’ve recently heard that Noughts & Crosses may become a show so I’m glad something of hers is coming to TV.
