T.G.I.F. - Friday, Sept 9th - Books to Television

Friday, Sept. 9th - Books to Television: Which books would you love to see made in to a tv series? or movie? 

So many books have made me wish to see them being acted out...but so many have come across and failed!

Currently I am in love with the Gallagher Girls Series (Reviews here for book 1, and here for book 2) and I would love to see them do a series...however there's a deep sinking feeling inside when I think "They will kill it". Stormbreaker was the same. Both are about spies, teenagers and the cross between and I always thought it would be amazing as they are so full of action. HOWEVER...within 10 minutes of Stormbreaker being on I was close to crying.

Alex wasn't how I imagined him. Looks wise they'd made him too good looking, sounds very odd but as I read it I imagined a quiet boy who blended in, and in the film they'd made him popular, super good looking, lots of charm and I wanted to just cry or yell at the people.

So I think making books into movies is a hard thing and any director/producer/writer/actor that takes it on must have to know somewhere in the back of their mind they have all these fans of the books to keep happy!

And I know I've just rambled how much it upset me...doesn't me a small part of me wants a Gallagher TV series/movie!!

What do you think??




  1. A Gallagher Girls tv series would be AMAZING, but like you, I'd be very concerned over every little thing they do with it.

  2. I have not read that series yet, I will have to look into it. I agree with you about the apprehension when they made any book into a tv show or movie. It can go so terribly wrong! I always struggle with wanting them to do it or not just because it could be changed so much or just turn out badly!

    I've not read this series yet, but you seem very passionate about it. It will definitely have to go on my TBR list.
