Books to TV

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about books that would make great TV shows, so here we go:

Series: HOUSE OF NIGHT by P. C. & Kirsten Cast

Why it would make a great TV series:
Just look at that picture. Clearly, there’s gonna be a lot of hot guys and drama (the third book, which the quote above is from, is a total drama mess, but in a good way). Plus, the series is really long, so that would mean a ton of seasons. The characters all stand out in their own ways, too, which is also great for a TV series. (also Team Erik yeah!)

Series: THE IVY by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur

Why it would make a great TV series:
Again, DRAMA. These books are kind of like the college edition of Mean Girls with a bit of The Social Network thrown in. Every book ends on a serious cliffhanger, and right from the start I could see these books on screen.

Series: STRANGE ANGELS by Lili St. Crow

Why it would make a great TV series:
I really enjoyed Strange Angels when I read it on a whim last year. I’d had an ARC of it for a while, but the cover was so embarrassing I’d never really given it a chance. St. Crow took me on a really wild ride with a great, ultra bad-ass heroine who would do well on screen, too. I can totally see Joss Whedon directing a TV show of this book because of the strong female lead and all the fun paranormal stuff. Sure, it’s got werewolves and vampires, but Lili St. Crow made them cool again.
