Top Ten Books You’d Like To See Made Into A Movie

Top Ten Tuesday

Totally forgot to post this yesterday…it was a public holiday and my schedule was messed up…

I don’t know whether I can come up with even one book that I would like to see made into a movie. Movies from books – with the exception of a few – suck. Big time.

I don’t want someone to re-create a book on film and destroy all the images in my head. When I was still a child I remember my disappointment and anger after watching “The Neverending Story” (which is only half the book to boot). Until then I had this great image of Fuchur in my head which I have never been able to conjure again after I saw that horrible WORM in the movie (don’t tell me you think this creature is cuddly or cute or anything!). The Neverending Story has never been the same again thanks to Wolfgang Petersen. I could go on and on forever, actually the topic today should rather be “Ten books you never wanted to see made into a movie”…

That being said sometimes I think that they do a really good job and do the book justice, so I probably COULD come up with a list of books where the movie adaptation worked for me after all, but this is not today’s topic.

    • Like I said I can think of some that worked for me, but in general I wouldn’t want any book seen turned into a film. Spoils all the fun.


  1. I would love to see what anyone makes of “The Book Thief”… also, if you haven’t seen “The English Patient”, it’s a fantastic adaptation for the screen, and for me, it was better than reading the book. This is one of the reasons why I have seen it 5 or 6 times and every time I cry…

    • I have never seen or read The English Patient, probably I am the only person who hasn’t, :). The Book Thief is on my TBR pile….


  2. Haha, great post. The reason I didn’t participate to this week’s TTT is because I am usually more afraid that movie adaptation will ruin the book. I love that you still participated and gave that answer!

    • I was considering not participating this week, but then I thought, ah, why not? I have something to say so I will say it, :).
