Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Love to See on Netflix

Hello everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is books we’d love to have adapted in a Netflix movie or series. I was working on a blog post very similar to this theme so luckily I had already put in some good thought into which books I would love to see on Netflix!

IIBH_Reveal.indd1. IF I’M BEING HONEST
Netflix romcoms are the best, and I’m not even sorry about it. There are so many great YA romantic comedy books that I think would make a fantastic movie, but one of the one’s I’d love to see adapted the most (and that I think would be a huge hit) is If I’m Being Honest

278336702. DARK MATTER
“I would love to see a movie adaptation of this, because if done correctly, I think it would be a big hit,” –Me, in my review. 
This book is a complete mind-fuck. It would make such a tremendous thriller movie because the reader is taken on such a wild ride throughout the book. 

438856733. 10 BLIND DATES
When I read this book, I said that it was perfect for anyone who enjoys holiday Hallmark movies. But you know what? It would also make a great holiday movie. It’s cute, it’s heartwarming, and it would be the perfect feel-good story for the holidays. 

256144924. SALT TO THE SEA
I would absolutely love to see a movie adaptation of this book. The story is based on the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustlaff, which had the largest loss of life of any maritime disaster in history. Never heard of it? Neither had I until I read this book. It gets hardly any attention–especially compared to the Titanic–so I would love a movie adaptation or at the very least, a historical documentary. 

350687055. THE POPPY WAR
Listen, if I could choose any book or book series to be made into a Netflix series, it would be this one. PLEASE NETFLIX, GIVE ME THIS ADAPTATION. Honestly, if these books were ever adapted into a movie or series, I would literally die (just like [redacted] in the burning god 😩). 

Untitled-16. THE PRISONER’S WIFE
This would make such a good World War II film! It’s an amazing book and I would love to see it adapted into a movie. Historical fiction movies always tend to do really well and I believe this book as all the makings for a real hit. It’s got romance, suspense, action, friendship and a message of hope and perseverance.

49366204._SX318_SY475_7. THE BEST LAID PLANS
Another YA romantic comedy that I think would be a fantastic candidate for a Netflix adaptation. Like I said in my review in February, “If I could choose only one book from this year to have made into a movie it would be The Best Laid Plans (@Netflix I’m looking at you).”

52894698._SX318_SY475_8. GODDESS THE MACHINE
Only the first book has been released, and already I know this would make an amazing sci-fi/apocalyptic Netflix series. The book is perfect for fans of The 100, which is in its last season, so this is the perfect opportunity to fill in that gap and pull in those who loved the show with something new, yet similar. 

178027249. THE HUSBAND’S SECRET
I’m hoping that since Big Little Lies is such a huge hit on HBO, one day my dreams will come true and The Husband’s Secret will also be adapted as either a movie or series. I actually love this book way more than Big Little Lies. When you finally learn the husband’s secret and everything that goes along with it? 🤯

18781110. THE MEDIATOR
These books were hot shit when I was in middle school/high school. To this day, they remain one of my favorite series of books. They would be so much fun adapted to a Netflix series! A smart, snarky teenage mediator who can balance schoolwork, hot boys, and sending murderous ghosts back to the beyond? Suze could be the next Buffy if given the chance.

  1. So I did see that someone did snag up the rights to 10 Blind Dates to turn into a movie unfortunately I can’t really find out anymore information about it. I do hope it is still happening. I did love that book so much. I also would love some sort of The Mediator series. I used to love that book series.

    1. I looked it up because of your comment and the producer who did To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is who snagged the rights for 10 Blind Dates! That gives me hope that Netflix will eventually turn it into a movie! 🙌🏼 Thanks for letting me know!

      1. Of course! I was super excited when I heard it got picked up. It really was such a cute read. I can see it being so fun and I have high hopes with the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before producer.

  2. Great choices this week!! I went back and forth about including Dark Matter on my list, so I’m glad it made yours. That books was a mindF and I can absolutely see how it would thrive on screen.

    I also think Best Laid Plans & If I’m Being Honest would be perfect candidates for Netflix romcoms!!
