Top Ten Tuesday: Lights, Camera, Adaptation!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Lights, Camera, Adaptation!

My challenge this week was to find ten books I think are deserving of an adaptation. This was hard for me, because I think almost every book I read would be great on the big (or little) screen. In fact, many of my favorites have been adapted. Some were better than others, but I would say they were all entertaining (thank goodness!). Instead of just considering the story in the book, I thought about which books could produce new stories, thus inspiring great TV series. 
  • Emma Mills Books - I believe that each and every Emma Mills books could be turned into a great TV show. Why? Because her characters are all amazing. I would love to see all of them grow and am curious as to what their future would look like. 
  • Killing November Series by Adriana Mather - I am so curious to see the world of the Strategia outside of my imagination. The books were also action packed, and I can see that translating well to TV. 
  • The Epic Crush of Genie Lo Series by F.C. Yee - You don't understand how sad I was to find out this would only be a duology. I saw endless adventures for Genie and Quinten. I envision them capturing a new demon every week, while Genie juggled her school work and extracurriculars. It would be fun and fantasic! 
  • Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon - First and foremost, I want to see people playing Howl. I am all over that game. I imagine the TV show either going back in time, to show the history between Rowan and Neil or following them post graduation. I would be happy either way. 
  • By the Book by Amanda Sellet - Another book with a standout cast. More books in this world is on my wishlist, because I honestly believe each and every character could carry their own story. I mean, the Porter-Malcolm clan is so big, that there's lots to work with right there. Never mind all the other characters I met and adored along the way. 
  • Hundred Oaks Series by Miranda Kenneally - I pretty much loved every single book in this series, and think it could be successful on TV for many reasons. The characters in the books are interconnected, but they are not all at Hundred Oaks at the same time. That means you have "generations" for this show - lots of room for growth. All these books cover topics that are important to teens and more current issues could easily be worked in. 
  • Brooklyn Brujas by Zoraida Córdova - There was Sabrina, Charmed, and now --- the Brujas! These books would be fantastic, and maybe I could get those answers I am still looking for. 
  • Once Upon a Con by Ashley Poston - Another series that has wormed its way into my heart. Not only do I want to keep going back to ExcelsiCon, but I want this circle of friends to expand. I am having way too much fun with them for it to end here. So, why not the small screen? 
  • When Dimply Met Rishi Series by Sandhya Menon - WDMR is an all-time favorite of mine, and I have nothing buy love for these characters. Getting to see them on a weekly/seasonal basis would be a treat. 
  • Gravity by Sarah Deming - I thought Gravity was a really intriguing character. It would be fantastic watching her work towards her Olympic dream and even getting to see her post Olympics. I think many aspects of this story could be expanded and I love a good girl power show. 

What books do you think could inspire a new TV series?
