Top Ten Tuesday - Books That Should be Adapted for Netflix

The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish they  handed over the reins to ThatArtsyReaderGirl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.

This week's topic is books that need to be adapted to Netflix series or movies.  That should be easy enough.  Let's go!

Hunter Shea's Slash is just begging for a summer slasher adaptation!

I think the world needs more Christmas horror to combat all the feel-good Hallmark movies (not that there's anything wrong with them).  If you've read this one, don't you agree that Snowball is a great starting point?

How about an urban fantasy series based on the Kate Daniels series? There are plenty of tales to work with in this wonderful series.

See, I can do feel-good movies too.  A Dog Called Jack is a great small-town tale with wonderful cast of characters.

Maybe wanting to see Bunny adapted to a movie is a tad selfish because I'm hoping it might make more sense if I could only SEE all the weirdness happening.  

What's a top ten list without Hollow Kingdom showing up somewhere?  Someone please, please, please adapt this!

Violet would make a great thriller movie!

V.M. Burns' Dog Club Mystery series would make such a great movie franchise for Netflix.  I mean, we need more dogs right?

A Wayward Children series anyone?  Come to think of this, I think someone is already adapting this one but I forget who it is. 

Netflix loves to adapt YA books so why is there no Undead Girl Gang series already?

So this was a lot of fun.  Do you think any of these would make great adaptations?  I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with this week.

  1. Snowball sounds like it would be fabulous. And honestly- I haven't read Hunter Shea but from what I've seen his stuff looks like it would be great for an adaptation!

    1. I wish we would get a sequel except I would miss a certain fella. Didn't he have a girlfriend in the book toward the end? Maybe there might be puppies!

  3. Oh man, Hollow Kingdom for sure! I would love to watch that! Haaaa, Snowball is the anti-Christmas movie, but you're right it would balance out the Hallmark onesaround. I though for sure something from Stephen King or a bio of Prince would be on your list too!

    1. Well, almost everything King does is adapted sooner or later and well, no one can play Prince so I fear I'd hate any adaptation centering on him.

  4. I would be worried that Hollow Kingdom would turn into a lame animated movie, so I'm not sure about that one, as much as I love it.

    1. You have a point. Maybe it would need someone like Burton or Del Torro to do it right.

    1. I can't help but feel a tad twisted that I consider Snowball a Christmas read and recommend it to everyone!
