Hello, everyone~ How are you?
Today we are discussing the novels I wish would be adapated into movies and why, as always articles/videos to go alongside them. This blog post will be late today as I have gone into detail, I can already tell, but it will be well worth it!
I won’t waste anymore time, read on!
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Published: November 15th 2011
Genres: Young Adult; Science Fiction > Dystopia; Fantasy; Romance; Fantasy > Paranormal; Fiction; Fantasy > Supernatural; Apocalyptic > Post Apocalyptic
I have a curse
I have a gift
I am a monster
I’m more than human
My touch is lethal
My touch is power
I am their weapon
I will fight back
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really safe.
Fan-Made Book Trailer:
Honestly, I feel like just by this fan-made trailer alone, this movie would be an amazing movie-adaption. This novel was so impactful and dramatic on the book, and if done well, it could translate on-screen even better. In some scenes in the novel, I felt like I almost had to see it. As I was reading it, it was so impactful that I almost wanted to watch it happen- to get as close as I can, and that is what a movie can do.
Slated by Teri Terry
Publisher: Orchard Books
Published: May 3rd 2012
Genres: Young Adult; Science Fiction > Dystopia; Science Fiction
Goodreads Rating: 4.07 / 5
Kyla’s memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost forever.
She’s been Slated.
The government claims she was a terrorist and that they are giving her a second chance – as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?
Like the previous novel, Slated is a fast pace and gripping novel. It has so much action and drama, with battles being fought, and lives hanging in the balance. This representation was construed so excellently on paper, but on-screen… it would be amazing. Words cannot describe how amazing that would be.
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Published: April 5th 2016
Genre: Young Adult; Science Fiction > Dystopia
Goodreads Rating: 4.11 / 5
You will be punished…
Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan.
But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned… she could be branded… she could be found flawed.
In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.
Flawed is an impactful, but serious novel. It has features of morality, law and justice, crime and punishment, family, and revenge. This book has features of everything we need to read, of a society of perfection- a rigid society where we need to be perfect or we are punished. Cast aside. I feel like it needs to be put on the screen, not just for readers to view, but for everyone to see, to know that it is okay to be flawed. To be imperfect.
Whisper Lynette Noni
Publisher: Pantera Press
Published: May 1st 2018
Genre: Young Adult; Fantasy; Science Fiction
Goodreads Rating: 4.25 / 5
“Lengard is a secret government facility for extraordinary people,” they told me.
I believed them. That was my mistake.
There isn’t anyone else in the world like me.
I’m different, I’m an anomaly, I’m a monster.
For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four — ‘Jane Doe’ — has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word.
As Jane’s resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new — and unexpectedly kind — evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard’s mysterious ‘program’, discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot … and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world.
Whisper. Oh my goodness, what can I say about Whisper by Lynette Noni. You all know, I am a massive fan of Lynette and her novel, but I am not going to fangirl here. On a true note, this novel was written almost poetically. It not only describes the characters in-depth, but their backgrounds, traits and even their environment. Now I know there is more to a novel than that, this novel has action and drama, as well as romance. It hits all the key features of a YA trope without being desperate. Which is why I would love to see this on the big screen. Let’s make it happen!
The Wicked We Have Done Sarah Harina
Publisher: Penguin/InterMix Books
Published: March 18th 2014
Genre: New Adult; Science Fiction > Dystopia; Romance; Science Fiction
Goodreads Rating: 3.80 / 5
Evalyn Ibarra never expected to be an accused killer and experimental prison test subject. A year ago, she was a normal college student. Now she’s been sentenced to a month in the compass room—an advanced prison obstacle course designed by the government to execute justice.
If she survives, the world will know she’s innocent.
Locked up with nine notorious and potentially psychotic criminals, Evalyn must fight the prison and dismantle her past to stay alive. But the system prized for accuracy appears to be killing at random.
She doesn’t plan on making friends.
She doesn’t plan on falling in love, either.
Author’s Book Trailer:
Honestly, I just loved reading this book. Maybe I’m still in the buzz of ‘recently read’ phase, or maybe this novel was just as amazing as I had thought it was, but this novel had features of horror/thriller, as well as true morality questioning, and my goodness, the plot. It was so in-depth. The characters too. This novel could be expertly replicated onto the screen, and I would just thoroughly enjoy seeing it.
That’s all for today, thank you all for reading. I do hope you enjoyed! Today was a fun one and I actually enjoyed reading through these, today I learnt that one of my favourite novels ‘Flawed’ by Cecelia Ahern is getting adapted into a movie, and I am so excited.
I had no idea until I did this research.
Not only that, but these video’s I found were so creative! I couldn’t find articles/videos for everything unfortunately, but I just wanted to share all the novels I want published as a movie and why!
As always, if you enjoyed today’s post please tell me down below. If you don’t want to comment there you can go to my Instagram or my Twitter which will be linked down below!
