I’ve been watching favourites over the past few weeks. Hunger Games, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter.. my partner refuses to watch Twilight and I can’t say I’d put myself through the mess that is Divergent so it got me thinking- which fantasy series would I want to see adapted? Here’s what I landed on…
The Bone Season- Samantha Shannon
Okay Shannon hasn’t finished writing this unbelievable brain child and I’m only two books deep myself but already I know it’s going to become a lifetime favourite for me. I also love that it’s partially in London, even though I’m English born and bred I don’t often enjoy movies set here but I know this will shatter the glass ceiling on my expectations.
Otherworld Series- Kirsten Miller & Jason Segel
I’ve been silently hoping this one will be picked up soon. I mean.. it’s co written by Jason Segel so he must have an in right? Maybe after the third and final instalment- which by the way I CANNOT wait for! Think Ready Player One but with higher stakes, original content (no stolen pop culture references here) better world building and more developed characters.
The Legend Trilogy – Marie Lu
These were the first books I read from Lu, Amazon recommended them to me shortly after finishing The Hunger Games trilogy and I was engrossed. Yes it is pretty typical of a YA dystopian romance, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to see it on the big screen. In fact The Hollywood Reporter mentioned again in July 2018 that a movie is in the works but I’m yet to see anything concrete…
Extinction Trials- Susan M Wilson
I love Jurassic Park as much as The Hunger Games so an amalgamation of the two is an ideal movie scenario! I cannot wait to read Rebel and finish out the series this year.
The Dark Tower- Stephen King
If you’ve ever watched the film, DISREGARD that shit show! TDT will never be done justice without a feature length film per book. I’ll spend my life hoping someone fulfils this dream of mine.
Would you like to see any of these books adapted?
