Five Fantasy Adaptations Amanda Would Watch

Hi, lovelies! There have really been some phenomenal book to movie/tv adaptations in the past few years, so I have a few books that I think would make incredible movies or tv shows. Some recent adaptations I’ve enjoyed are Shadow and Bone (while I have my issues with it, I overall enjoyed watching it), Bridgerton, and Big Little Lies. I haven’t watched many of the newer fantasy adaptations because I haven’t read the books yet. But there are some that have recently been announced that I’m incredibly excited forr (Percy Jackson, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Daisy Jones and the Six, and the Kane Chronicles). So, I thought it would be fun to share some fantasy stories I love that I think would make the jump to the screen well.

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
I love this series with my whole heart. I’m really hoping that is the Disney adaptation of Percy Jackson does well, they might start working on some of the series from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint. I love Aru and the other Pandava sisters. I think this series would do so well as a tv show.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
I have some real nostalgia for this series. And since it’s been rebooted with new installments I’ve recently reread it. I think this series would do really great as a movie series. Especially the second book, Fire, with all the stunning colors and creatures. I think the concept of ‘graces’ and the general plot and setting would look great up on a big screen.

We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia
This is another that I think would make a great movie or two. I do think that both books could be made into one movie. I would love to see Daniela and Carmen on screen. This book is queer and Latinx and I would love to see that representation in a movie.

There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool
This is one of my all time favorite series. So, I would obviously love to see it adapted. I think it would have to be a tv series to really show all of the characters and the paths they each follow. I love these characters so much that I would love to go on a several season journey with them.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand
I think this would have to be a tv show. There’s just so much that happens between the two different time periods that this story happens in, that there’s no way it could all successfully happen in a movie. I loved Rielle and Eliana, and I really think that it would do will if it were to be adapted.

I think these five books would make excellent movies and/or tv shows. What books would you love to see adapted?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

This week’s topic is Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies.

Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power
This would make such a good and creepy Netflix series. The suspense and mystery of this town are perfect for a Halloween season show.

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
I would love either a show or several movies for this series. This would be such a good one to be adapted (after Disney finishes with Percy Jackson maybe?)

There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool
I literally have no idea how it would happen but I need it. I need these disaster children on my screen.

The Final Six by Alexandra Monir
This would be a great Netflix show. The world ending because of climate change and teenagers training to be astronauts in a mission to terraform a new world? Yes, please. The way this story is written would be perfect for a show too.

Ashlords by Scott Reintgen
What an incredible movie this book would make. Phoenix horses? Yes.

American Royals by Katharine McGee
This would make a great Gossip Girl sort of show. It’s so full of drama and similar relationship dynamics like GG.

The Study of Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
I absolutely need this boarding school mystery as a tv show.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
I think this boarding school mystery would make a great movie (or two.)

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
A movie of this horrifying Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling? Absolutely 100% yes. I think this would be great for the spooky season too.

The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal
There are a few movies out there already that are sort of like this (Hidden Figures) but this one is an alternate reality. A meteorite hits the Earth and the world may not have much time left. But Lady Astronauts to the rescue!

These are just a few of the books I’d love to see adapted by Netflix. What books are on your list this week?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
