What book or series would I like to see made into a movie or television show? Hmm, that’s a loaded question. . .
I’ll say that I have been mostly disappointed in the adaptations of books I’ve seen, with a few exceptions. My imagination is so active that any other interpretation usually is a let-down. I remember being so excited as a little girl about the Little House series. . .and then bitterly upset when the episodes did not stick to the book I knew so well. Same with Anne of Green Gables–the BBC/PBS series is so far from the ‘real’ story that it made me really angry. Gah!
I’m cautiously optimistic about the Outlander series coming to television. We’ll see.
Other than that. . .I think I’d like to see JD Robb’s In Death books on the small screen. I love Eve Dallas and think it would make an amazing show. And I also think Olivia Hardin’s Bend-Bite-Shift series would make an awesome set of movies. . .so intricate and intriguing, not to mention hot and sexy!
But I must be in charge of casting. And script adaptation. And set design. And. . .well, Olivia, you might as well just let me be in charge of the whole dang thing.

Lol, Tawdra! I agree with you on Little House and Anne of Green Gables shows and TOTALLY that I’d like to see the In Death books on the screen. You humble me about the Bend-Bite-Shift Series.*blushes* I will absolutely put you in charge of the whole dang thing… as long as we can cast Tom Hiddleston in there somewhere that is. 😉
I find that most movie and TV show adaptations are disappointing, too. They never seem to do the book(s) justice!
