This Thursdays theme is: With the Oscars coming up soon choose a book that you would like to see as a movie.
There’s honestly not many books I’d like to see as a movie or tv series – partially because I’m scared the outcome will be like City of Bones – the movie (that had great actors, setting and visual effects but lacked a lot for important scenes that made the narrative way too fast) or Shadowhunters (in which I hate most of the casting, their acting, the setting , the visual effects (most things related to Malec are great though).
The other reason is probably because most of the books I do want to see get movies are getting movies/tv series! Such as
- Looking for Alaska (IMDb page)
- Illuminae (IMDb page)
- Throne of Glass (to be called Queen of Shadows but will start from TOG)
- A Court of Thorns and Roses (IMDb page)
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone (IMDb page)
From all of these, the one I most want to see as a movie is probably Illuminae (my favorite book of all time – my review). This article says that Brad Pitt would be developing Illuminae (I’m not entirely sure what that means but I’m pretty darn happy – I just hope they don’t screw this up).
[ Most of the editions have these two covers. The Portuguese edition has the one on the left and the one I own and my favorite is the one on the right. ]
[P. S. – If anyone reading this has access to IMDbpro please check out the Illuminae page and the ACOTAR page and tell me all about them.]
