I love TV shows! They’re the sole purpose of my existence (no, they’re not but this is a perfect world and so they’re today). So is unlimited tea, free time of course, books. So I came up with ten shows I’d be watching endlessly because I’ll never get tired of them. It’s all will be just very good.
“If I let myself love you, I won’t throw myself in front of her. I’ll throw myself in front of you.”
“Thinking something does not make it true. Wanting something does not make it real.”
“You have the curiosity of a cat and common sense of a goldfish.”
Assassin nuns. It’s like the catholic Game of Thrones. All the chilling intrigue, romance and politics in Grave Mercy would be something ah-mazing as a TV show.
“This is what I want to be. An instrument of mercy, not vengeance.”
“We’re actors in our lives, pretendin’ to be who we want people to think we are.”
Aren’t we all tired of shows where cases are dealt with on an episode basis? How about a heist per episode? Why is everything so much better in the perfect world? Oh, Heist Society. (There is a movie in the works, though).
“It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth.”
Edie is just the best character ever and she’d rock as a character on TV. I just love this series so much and have read it countless times, so just gimme a TV version of it. I deserve it.
“It wasn’t like I’d woken up and decided to be a bitch, it was more like I’d woken up to find bitchiness thrust upon me.”
Little Earthquakes is a beautiful book. Five mothers and their ups and downs in life. I wouldn’t mind watching
such a show.
“She thought of what it would be like to grow up without the one certainty that every baby deserved – when I’m hurt or cold or scared, someone will come and care for me – and how that absence could warp you so that you’d lash out at the people you loved, driving them away when all you wanted to do was pull them closer.”
“The trouble with giving yourself a pep talk is, that deep down you know it’s all bullshit.”
Every girl on this planet have been called fat at least once in her lifetime and Jemima J is no exception.
“I do believe in fate, but I also believe that we control our own destinies, and I’m not sure which I believe in more. I think that mostly I believe that life is a bit like a tree, and that there are several branches we could take. I think that’s where the controlling our own destiny bit comes in. If we choose a certain branch then our life will go one way, and fate will throw things at us from then on.”

VA would have definitely been a better tv show instead of film…plus it would have lasted so much longer. At least it will be on the screen though 😉 I love how you did the pictures! Such cool graphics
Excellent list this week. I would love to see Mara Dyer as a movie.

VA series!!! *screams* OMG that would be awesome, and not of that "This is my school, and we're oh so cool *cue lame teenage music*!" -.-
YES to grave mercy <3
I had Grave Mercy on my list too! 🙂 And Perfect Chemistry would make a great movie in my opinion. They could really do the whole series! 🙂

I totally missed out Something Strange & Deadly! But yes, I agree, it would make a good film. I mean, all those parasols and beautiful dresses. <3 Ha, I haven't read VA yet, but I don't like the look of the movie either. Based on what everyone's said about Dmitri, I was expecting someone hot and… well, GOOD LOOKING, but this guy. He looks like SNAPE. What's up with that hair, dude? Not cool!
Nice looking list, Sana! I've only read Remember Me out of these, but that one would make a great movie imo as well 🙂
Interesting. I chose all my books based off what I would want to see on the big screen, not the little one. But reading what you had to say, I can't help agree that a lot of these would be preferable in TV show format than in movie format. TV shows allow for much more detail from the book to be included. There is less of a chance that they would cut things out (that is, in a perfect world!).
