Booking Through Thursday for 5/28/15

Booking Through ThursdayBooking Through Thursday is a weekly blog with a different bookish topic every week. This week’s topic: Books Into Film

What book would you love to see turned into a movie?

(Yes, with the understanding that it would be everything you hoped it could be, doing justice to the story, the characters, the writer’s vision, and so on. Not a hatchet-job horror.)

Ugh, this one is so hard!! There are several books I would love to see turned into movies, but I also know that they would be very hard to turn into good movies. My first pick would definitely be The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern. That book is so visual anyway, I would love to see that adapted for the screen. Another would be Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, mostly because I would love to see how they did the chimera. Lots of motion capture and CGI, I’m guessing.

What books would you love to see turned into (hopefully good) movies?

  1. I definitely agree that The Night Circus would be amazing, if done well. There’s so much beautiful imagery in the book that would be awesome to see brought to life.

    • The imagery is amazing, but there are so many subtle nuances in the book as well, and that’s where I’m afraid the movie would let me down. Movies don’t often do well with subtle, particularly where fantasy is involved.

  2. I loved Night Circus, it would be quite a movie to make!
