TGIF was a feature at one of my favorite blogs, GReads. It’s a way to recap the week, talk about fun book things, and celebrate the weekend. Each week a bookish question was proposed as a way to get to know fellow bloggers and write about issues we care about.
Books to Television: Which books would you love to see made in to a TV series? or movie?
I thought this would be a good topic for this week because clearly, 2013 is going to be a big year for young adult books on TV. The CW is releasing the television series of Kiera Cass’ The Selection this spring, and earlier this week Lauren Oliver announced that Emma Roberts will be starring as Lena in the TV series of Delirium.
Another book series I think would be terrific as a TV show is Lauren Kunze & Rina Onur’s The Ivy. It has the perfect amount of drama, romance, and comedy to entertain a large audience, with crazy characters that’ll keep viewers hooked for many, many seasons.
I think Lili St. Crow’s Strange Angels could also be a really great television series. It’s got all the stuff that’s really in right now (vampires, werewolves, etc.) with a strong heroine who could actually be a good example to teenage girls, as opposed to those in certain other unnamed vampire movies.
