TGIF over at GReads!

The awesomeness that is Ginger (or G, as I like to call her) over at GReads! has created a great meme that is tons of fun. Each Friday, she poses a question for anyone to answer. Go check her out and join in!

This Friday's Question:

Books to Television:

Which books would you love to see
made into a
TV series or movie?

Wow, my list for this question is SOOO long! Nearly every book I've read I would love to see on TV or at the movies...how do I narrow it down! I know, I'll choose one of each.

So, for Book-to-TV, I think I'll go with...

Blue Bloods
By Melissa de la Cruz

When the Mayflower set sail in 1620, it carried on board the men and women who would shape America: Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins. But some among the Pilgrims were not pure of heart; they were not escaping religious persecution. Indeed, they were not even human. They were vampires.The vampires assimilated quickly into the New World. Rising to levels of enormous power, wealth, and influence, they were the celebrated blue bloods of American society.

Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries. But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out. Schuyler Van Alen is a sophomore at a prestigious private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapated mansion. Schuyler is a loner...and happy that way. Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a popular girl from her school is found dead... drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn't know what to think, but she wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

I shamefully admit that I haven't read this series yet, but I really really want to. And anything to do with vampires is golden in my book, so I would absolutely love to see this series made into a TV show!

For Book-to-Movie, this one is a bit more difficult to decide. There are so so many books that I dream of seeing the characters on the big screen that it's not easy to only choose one. But, alas, I must. So, my pick is gonna have to be...

In Mary's world there are simple truths.

The Sisterhood always knows best.
The Guardians will protect and serve.
The Unconsecrated will never relent.
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.

But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future-between the one she loves and the one who loves her.

And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

I simply loved this book. The beautiful writing, the great characters, the zombies. Oh yeah. This would absolutely be a fun, creepy movie to watch. Come on, Hollywood...get it made already!


  1. Never heard of the first but I want to read the forest of hands and teeth. Good picks.

  2. The Forest of Hands and Teeth would make a great television series. With the success of The Walking Dead, I could definitely see another zombie television show!

  3. I haven't read either of these, but they're both on my list. I definitely need to though! :]

    My TGIF!

  4. I really enjoyed Blue Bloods and have not figured out why it isn't a show yet. I haven't read The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I will have to check that one out.

    Happy Friday
