Books That Would Make Great Adaptations #3

Happy Monday everyone! Today I will be talking about some books that I think would make great TVs how/movie adaptations. I have 5 books/series I want to talk about today, so let’s jump right in!

It Happened One Summer – Tessa Bailey


This is just the ultimate rom-com. Netflix would make loads of money and get loads of views if they adapted this book as a movie. The characters have got great chemistry, the plot/dialogue is so funny, this book isn’t alos just about the romance but also the growth the two characters experience individually which is also really lovely. I could 1000% see this as a movie. I just haven’t got round to fancasting yet!

Beast and Beauty – Soman Chainani

TV Series

This would be such an amazing series. My idea would be to have each episode be a full story with about 6 episodes per season. This book has so much variety and scope that each episode would be so different from the others. It would be like watching a short film. I think it would be such a great idea. Maybe in the future they’ll do it as this authors other book The School for Good and Evil is due to be realeased as a movie adaptation this year on Netflix.

The Broken Earth Trilogy – N.K. Jemisin

TV Series

I haven’t even finished this series yet but I know the ending is going to be insane. This fantasy series is unlike any other I have read. It is amazing and everyone needs to read these books. I think this would make an amazing high budget TV show. I want the kind of Game of Thrones level of dedication with this series (without the absolute cock up of an ending).

Iron Widow – Xiran Jay Zhao


Now for this one I am talking Avatar level of movie production. Long run time, amazing CGI, the works. While it would also make a great TV show I think the movie production level for all the mecha fight scenes would be phenomenal! I would love to see book and it’s follow up adapted ASAP please!

Brownstones Mythical Collection – Joe Todd-Stanton

Animated Movies

These books are SOOOOO underrated. The artstyle is beautiful, the amount of detail is astounding and the stories have such beautiful messages. I would love to see these adapted into animated movies for children. Not only would it visually look amazing but the messages behind the stories are amazing.

  1. Eh, I’d read the last book of the Broken Earth trilogy before you get too hyped, unfortunately. The series starts out FANTASTIC, and I LOVE the first book but dang does it just kinda fizzle out by the last book. The last book was disappointing, and honestly it left the series as a whole a big ol’ meh.

    BUT YES TO IT HAPPENED ONE SUMMER being a fantastic romcom. Someone could make big bucks on that one, for sure.
