Novel Films II #2

DAY 2: Which novels that so far haven’t yet been made into films/ TV adaptations would you like to see and why?

Now this is a question I often pose myself when I am reading and now wish I had kept a comprehensive list. For the sake of this Blogfest, I'll throw a few suggestions into the mix of those that I recall crossing my mind as having Film/ animation/ TV dramatisation potential:

The Gervase Phinn books would make a great series like those of James Herriot 
 The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness 
Cosmic by Frank Cotterill Boyce
The Vanishing Act of Esmé Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell
Blackberry Wine by Joanna Harris
Into The Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes
Before I Go to Sleep by S J Watson
Creepy Hollow Series by Rachel Morgan


  1. I love that you mentioned Creepy Hollow - totally agree with you on that one! But I haven't read any of the other books up there. :)

  2. Those are some great choices. :-)

  3. Hi Madeleine .. Blackberry Wine sounds a good one to me - lovely views of the countryside as mellow late summer passes with emotion tied in ..

    I'm afraid I don't really do general movies .. I tend to go for the film society ones ... I see the popular ones eventually somewhere, sometime .. and often on the small screen!

    Cheers - and enjoy the weather while it lasts .. Hilary

  4. I'd like to see all my books made into films!

  5. Havent read any of these yet, but i can see how they'd be a great movie. :D

  6. Keri Hulme's Bone People! That would be mega traumatic for me but it will be one brave bold film, I think! Take care

  7. Hi Maddy. I can't wait to see several of your choices made into film. Some would be difficult to make. Think how many years and how many directors tried their hand at Lord of the Rings before Peter Jackson did the deed -- so magnificiently.

    I'm late. Have been unwell. I just posted an entry more suited to Day 1 but was all my brain could handle today!
