Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen: This is such a magical and heart-warming book. I think it would translate well onto the screen. Set in the South, featuring magic, sisters, hidden pasts and drama, then ending on an optimistic note. Yes, I'd watch this movie. (The good news is, I think this book actually will become a movie.)
2. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield: It's a Gothic mystery and that's always "in". It has a great setting - English countryside, old house. There's suspense, there are mysteries, great characters. I see Dame Maggie Smith, or Judi Dench, and Kate Winslet.
3. If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern: It's an Irish romance. It's incredibly touching, it's sweet. And, it's Irish. We need that.
4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: I know there have been a lot of WWII movies made, but this war movie would be unlike any other war movie you've seen. I think the book would work great as a movie.
5. The Collector by John Fowles: A movie was made in the 1960s and it's been almost 50 years since then. This book needs a new movie. A movie that will honour it.
6. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman: I think this book is perfect for an animation in the style of Coraline. Tim Burton should do it.
7. Angelology by Danielle Trussoni: This is a great angelic thriller. It doesn't romanticize these celestial beings and that's what we need: some badass supernaturals. I think the effect on the big screen would be epic.
8. The House at Riverton by Kate Morton: If this book was turned into a movie, that would be a wonderful thing. It would make a great period drama.
9. Villette by Charlotte Bronte: This overlooked classic could really shine on the screen.
10. A Trick of the Dark by B.R. Collins: What a thriller this would be!
