June 2: Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows

Phule's Company

1. Robert Asprin; Phule’s Company. Funny, with weird aliens and assorted misfits. And a butler.

oryx and crake

2. Oryx & Crake; Margaret Atwood. A weird dystopian, complicated enough that it would be difficult to make into a move, but challenges are fun.


3. Warrior’s Apprentice; Lois McMaster Bujold. I really just want to see Miles on the screen. It’d be fun!

all american girl

4. All American Girl; Meg Cabot. Princess Mia got a movie, why not the girl who who saved the President?

wind witch

5. The Wind Witch; Susan Dexter. A favorite childhood book of mine, with a strong female character, and some cool powers.

abundance of katherines

6. An Abundance of Katherines; John Green. Why not make all the John Green books into movies?


7. The Magicians; Lev Grossman. Because if Harry Potter can do so well, why can’t a darker and grown up version do well?

grave sight

8. Grave Sight; Charlaine Harris. Spooky powers, lots of mystery, and a strong female lead.


9. Johannes Cabal: The Necromancer; Johnathan Hughes. He’s snarky, and he’s trying to get his soul back from the devil–he’s having quite an adventure.

wind up bird

10. Wind Up Bird Chronicles; Haruki Murakami. Another weird one, but anything by Murakami would be interesting.


About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    I was just saying to another blogger that I’ve had Oryx and Crake for ages and not yet read and here it is now on two lists – it must be an omen! I’ll have to pick it up (very soon!)
    I’ve read I think one of the grave series by Harris and enjoyed it. Not got further with the series though but I’m sure I have at least one other book somewhere!

  2. Yes, there definitely needs to be a movie of The Warrior’s Apprentice. But they cannot leave out ANY of the characters.
