September 10: Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show
Enchantment Emporium; Tanya Huff. I would love to see the Gale women on the screen–a little crazy at times, but magical, and smart. And the Emporium would look spectacular on screen.
The Fire Rose; Mercedes Lackey. I love many of the characters in these series, and the elementals are pretty nifty. Might as well start at the beginning.
Good Omens; Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. (I found that this is in development, but nothing concrete.) What’s better than the end of the world, childhood dreams, and some very confused Satanists?
Heart of Stone; C.E. Murphy. Another book with a lot of characters I’d love to see–fascinating and complex people, like Margrit and Alban, Janx and Dasani.
Moon Called; Patricia Briggs. Mercy is kick-butt, and better dressed than she gets to be on the book covers. And it’s a nice example of actually scary vampires, dangerous weres, and even more dangerous elves.
Rosemary and Rue; Seanan McGuire. Because Toby is spectacular, and so are several other characters–and the world is dark and intriguing.
Shadowland; Meg Cabot. Ghosts and murder and teen angst. This one would have to be either several movies, or a series, because the end must make it to the screen.
Soulless; Gail Carriger. Another fascinating world set up, steampunk, vampires and killer uncontrollable rage-werewolves. And Alexia is the sort of character that you just have to see in all her practical glory.
Terrier; Tamora Pierce. I admire any character who’s defining trait is stubbornness–the complete and utter inability to let something go.
Written in Red; Anne Bishop. This book was so amazing, it should be everywhere. Everywhere! A crazy different world, and a spectacular mythology. All kinds of fairy-tale creatures, but nothing sweet here.
