Books That Should Be Movies
Historical Fiction That Will Make You Cry
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys
Realistic Contemporary Romance
Just One Day by Gayle Forman: (You can read my review here.) Aside from the European travel scenes, this is a great story of romance and heartbreak. The film could follow the plot of Just One Day, and just show us Allyson’s perspective, or it could combine it with the coming sequel and weave in Willem’s story. The audience would know what Willem was up to, even though Allyson wouldn’t.
The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman: (You can read my review here.)
Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff: (You can read my review here.)
Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis: (You can read my review here.) This could be made into a movie with very few changes to the story. Trying to survive in a world without sufficient water, where people are willing to kill to get it, would make for a terrifying movie.
The Aliens are Coming!
In the After by Demitria Lunetta: (You can read my review here.) This is a great mix of a survivalist story and sci-fi, with two great lead characters.
