Another good week for me because of course I’m going to mention 3 books I want to see as movies in this list, and I hope someday I will get my wish. At first I thought of so many books that are already going to be adaptations for this list but I figured that’s not fun and decided to share three books that I think would translate well on screen. And then hopefully someday, they will be.
This is a short story, which I listened to as an audio book and I liked it a lot. It reminded me a little of The Frighteners which is one of my favourites from Michel J. Fox, and that nostalgia is the reason why I think it will work well as a movie. It’s a science fiction type fantasy story where the main character has multiple personalities who he conjures up as hallucinations, which are all fantastic characters. All these characters have a various set of skills, which he therefore is able to tap into and which help him solve mysteries. I mean, the movie plot is writing itself at this point!
There hasn’t been good teen comedies in a while. The market sort of dried up of those as well as romantic comedies. I miss these movies, I hope that I won’t be 50 when they make a comeback, because I’d like to see them now. Luckily, in 2019 one of my favourite YA books is getting an adaptation, but I’d like to see The Fill-In Boyfriend as well! It has a fake-relationship story line which is my guilty pleasure, and how fun would it be to use that as a plot in a movie? I think it would be entertaining and cute at the same time.
In theme with the last pick, like I said, I would like to see the trend of romantic comedies come back and not in a manner of Fifty Shades, please! When that happens, I hope they adapt The Hating Game, which is exactly what it sounds like – a woman hates a man, loathes him, but well, does she really hate him? This slow burn adult novel was a great read and it is clearly inspired by You Got Mail! How can you go wrong with an adaptation from something like that?! You can, but hopefully someday, they won’t.
