Good morning, bookpups🐾 Who’s in the mood for a book chat? *raises hand annoyingly* One of my favorite things from my early book blogging days was always Top Ten Tuesday! One prompt, ten books, and a whole lot of fun! This week’s prompt is 10 books that should be adapted into Netflix movies/shows and I had to narrow my list down quite a few times to stick with just ten. So here are just a few of my favorite books that I would love to see Netflix make into shows (hint hint, Netflix). Enjoy!
QOTD: Do you watch movies or shows that are based on books?
I am very wary about this. I’ve fallen in love with books before *cough* The Lightning Thief *cough* and been disappointed by the movie. Extremely, angrily, disappointed. You just don’t change an ending like that!! So now I am very careful about watching movies or shows if I’ve already read the book. Most times, it’s best to just steer clear.

Let’s talk about books and movies! And let me say first that this is just a fraction of the books that I’ve read and think should be made into books or movies … a small fraction!
These books are not in any particular order (favorites, etc).
THE VANISHING HALF BY BRIT BENNETT. As mixed as my feelings were about this book (it was just so sad!), I would love to see it played out in a movie. Read my review.
THRONE OF GLASS BY SARAH J. MAAS. Oh my gosh, yes! I love this series so much and would probably have to wait to watch it until each book was made into a movie. Then it would be a weekend binge-watching event 😉 Read my review.
ANGEL EYES BY SHANNON DITTEMORE. I stumbled on this book when I first started reading Christian Fiction. I immediately fell in love with the characters and, though I already have a picture of them in my head, I’d love to see how they transfer into a movie.
KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES BY SHANNON MESSENGER. As I have currently lent out the first book in this series, I grabbed the second for this photo. I loved the first book, though the entire series should be made into a Netflix series. Read my review.
THE LUNAR CHRONICLES BY MARISSA MEYER. Fairytale retellings at its finest! I’ve read Cinder more than once (on audiobook) and loved it. Though I’ve read Scarlett, Cress, and part of Winter, I wasn’t smart enough to write my review immediately. Therefore, I will be re-reading them all (my life is so rough, I know 🤣)
DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE BY LAINI TAYLOR. Another incredible book that would benefit from being made into a movie. I loved Karou, Zuzanna, and Brimstone! I had to re-read it to remember why I was so pissed off at Akiva before starting the second 🤣!
THE ENTIRE ISAN SERIES BY MARY TING. If you enjoy YA dystopian novels, this is the perfect series for you! It has a little romance, some spy/assassin action, and the perfect dystopian/post-apocalyptic world. I’d watch this one in a heartbeat, just to see Ava and Rhett 💕 Read my review of Helix.
THE 39 CLUES SERIES BY MULTIPLE AUTHORS. I would watch this series just to see how each different author’s perspective translates onto the screen. The best part about this series (other than the clue hunt!) is that each author brings a slightly different spin to the characters. This would be a must-see! Read my review of The Maze of Bones.
NOT YOUR MATCH BY LINDZEE ARMSTRONG. I love love LOVE this series! Lindzee is one of my favorite authors and to see Brooke and Luke in person (on the screen), would make this series even better. It’s a clean romance, so it would even be one you could watch as a family.
CAPTAIN SUPERLATIVE BY J.S. PULLER. This is an incredible middle-grade story about superheroes and teaching kids to stand out, instead of trying to fit in or blend into the shadows. Read my review.
