Top Ten Books I'd Like To See Made Into Movies


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week, we get a theme to list our top tens. 

This week's Top Ten asks us which Top Ten Books We'd Like To See Made Into Movies.

Let me think. Most of the classics have already made into movies. The fantasy novels too. And many Crime Fiction novels. Where does that leave me? I will take some fairly recent novels.

Here I go:

The Wake of Forgiveness by Bruce Machart
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
The Gendarme by Mark T Mustian
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman
Inside Out by Barry Eisler
The Likeness by Tana French
The Rule Book by Rob Kitchin
Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten 
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

Hasn't The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest already been done?

The Wake of Forgiveness would make an awesome movie, in the right hands.

Good list. There are Swedish movies of the Millenium trilogy, and now Hollywood is making them too. I love the Swedish ones and hope these ones turn out good too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Fun list... I don't think I've read a single one of those. I hear a lot about Larsson's books, though, and have heard that Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is really good. :)

Happy reading!

I still have not read Larsson's trilogy and now I'm wondering if I should see the movie first.

I've seen the Swedish first movie of the Millenium trilogy, and was pretty much horrified all the way through (same with all three books). They're good, but so violent. Makes me wonder if it's worth it.

Great list!

I saw The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest already - all three (in Sweidsh) were very well done, but I guess Hollywood is taking a crack at them now - should be interesting!
