Books to TV Series #1 | The White Rabbit Chronicles


So 'Books to TV Series' is going to be a brand new series on my blog where I focus on a book or series that I think would be great as a TV show or series. I really want to go in depth of the books/series and also talk about who I think would be some great casts. Of course, these are all my opinions but I just thought it seemed like a lot of fun.

To start of the first series I have picked The White Rabbit Chronicles by Gena Showalter. It's a YA Paranormal series that I finds really mixes both the girly and manly sides perfectly together. If you love TV shows like Gossip Girl and 90210 or The Walking Dead then I think you'd especially love this series since it has the drama, gossip of 90210 and, of course, the action and zombies of The Walking Dead.

 
I discovered this series in 2013 after I was looking for a different take on Alice in Wonderland. Initially I was looking for a leather bound edition of the book and then came across Alice in Zombieland. The title stood out and I really loved the cover, however, I decided to read up some reviews and didn't hear the best things about it. But that did not dampen my desire to pick it up. I read it the day it arrived and quickly became obsessed. I loved the unusual take on the story and Kat had to be the most hilarious character I have ever read about. She reminds me of myself when I go into my 'alter-ego' mode. My love for the series took off from there and I am so glad I didn't let other reviews stop me from giving the series a chance.
 
People have said they'd like a movie of this series but I have to disagree. I think this would relate so much more for TV. There's a world that needs the room to expand and a movie wouldn't be able to do that. Looking at the iflist there have been some great fan casts, but I think I have fan casted some great actors.
 
Alice Bell // Skylar Samuels // American Horror Story, The DUFF, Scream Queens
 
Cole Holland // Stephen James // Former footballer, now model
 
Kat Parker // Marie Avgeropoulos // The 100
 
Kat Parker // Sarah Hyland // Modern Family, Vampire Academy
 
Frosty // Jamie Campbell Bower // Twilight, The Mortal Instruments
 
Bronx // I can't think of anyone for him, sadly.
 
Mackenzie Love // Zoey Deutch // Beautiful Creatures, Vampire Academy
 
Reeve Ankh // Daniella Monet // Victorious, Fred 2 & 3
 
Trina Brighton // Hayley Kiyoko //  Lemonade Mouth, CSI: Cyber, Insidious Chapter 3
 
Emma Bell // Mia Talerico // Good Luck Charlie
 
Justin Silverstone // Gregg Sulkin // Wizards of Waverly Place, Faking It
 
I really do think that with the right producers, directors and writers the books would make excellent TV. I can imagine it this very second, and what I imagine makes me very excited. Mainly because of the blood. A shit ton of blood.
 
 
 
 
Who would you fan cast as these characters?
