Geek Girl by Holly Smale

I really think this would make a really interesting teenage show on Disney Channel or Nickelodeon. It's smart, funny and shows diversity in a great way!

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

There's been rumours of a film for a while, but I honestly would not want a movie. The setting is quite different and definitely suits to a TV Series as they could explore to world and character relationships more. It's funny and kick-ass, I love, love, love it!

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

We know that ABC Family have ordered a 13 episode series of The Mortal Instruments, but honestly? I prefer the time period of The Infernal Devices. It's beautiful, poetic and still have a dark undertone that would make a perfect TV series.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

BBC have required the rights for a TV series and I screamed in excitement. I want on that TV Show! What I love about this series is that there is something for everyone: historical detail, mystery, paranormal powers and a beautiful, yet dangerous romance. Every character is relatable and it leaves you wanting more.

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver

This is a great YA Mystery, but there's still so much to it. In most Mystery shows it focuses more or less on the evidence, while Vanishing Girls deals with the mystery aspect and family aspects, how 2 sisters can become enemies. It's incredible. Beautiful, deep and poetic.

What books to you think would make great TV Shows?



  1. I haven't read any of these but they all sound like they would make great TV shows. Many are on my TBR - but not enough time :)

  2. I haven't read any of these, but they sound pretty interesting, especially Vanishing Girls. There are a few comics I'd love to see as TV shows, specifically the Saga and Sandman series. I think, if done right, both of those worlds would be amazing in a TV setting.

  3. I love the Geek Girl books (Nick is so swoon worthy!). I think all of these would make really good adaptations :)

    1. I've only read Geek Girl and I don't see myself reading the others in the series. I enjoyed it, but it's not a series for me.
