Top Ten Tuesday - Books That Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies


Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week the topic is
Books That Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies
Here are my choices . . .
1. Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This is such an epic sci-fi read and I could definitely see it as a TV show.
2. The Eyre Affair (Thursday Next, #1) by Jasper Fforde

 This witty, imaginative book (and series) could be such a fun TV show.
I can totally see Claire Foy as Thursday.

3. Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
This was one of my favourite reads of 2019 and I can definitely see it as a film or TV show. The setting would be really cinematic and Casiopea is a fantastic protagonist.
 4. Seven Devils (Seven Devils, #1) by Elizabeth May and Laura Lam

I can definitely see Seven Devils being made into a TV show. 
With a kick-ass cast of women, and lots of twists, this could be a really epic sci-fi show.

5. The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep by H.G. Parry
This would be such a fun TV show with the characters from famous literary works.
 6. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I think I can see this more as a TV show than a film. It would be so fun seeing the libraries and the grimoires which come to life and spit ink at people.
7. A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood
This would make a lovely feel-good film and the Gatsby-esqueness would make for a fun setting.

8. Uprooted by Naomi Novik

This magical, fantasy book would make a fun and enchanting TV series.

9. The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1) by Samantha Shannon

This would make an awesome TV show. The world is so immersive and detailed and I would love to see Paige and Warden brought to life.

10. The Rebel of the Sands (The Rebel of the Sands, #1) by Alwyn Hamilton

This would make a great TV show with the magic and sprawling scenery. There are some great characters in this series as well and some good action scenes.

What books would you like to see made into Netflix TV shows or films?



  1. Great list! I would love a beautiful adaptation of Gods of Jade and Shadow. I feel like her novel Certain Dark Things would be such a good noir-style film, too. Uprooted could be such a beautiful series!

    1. I still need to read Certain Dark Things but it sounds awesome :)

  2. Ooh, Gods of Jade and Shadow is a great pick! I'd watch it for sure.

  3. Really beautiful covers on this list!!

    My TTT.

  4. I haven't even read Seven Devils yet and I already want a tv series of it! Wonderful post, Jess!

  5. I still need to read Illuminae, but it sounds like it would make a great series. :)
