{Thoughts on Thursday} What book or series would you pick for the screen?

After watching the first episode of Outlander at Comic Con last weekend, I realized how many awesome books out there that I'd love to see on the big and small screen. I read the first in the Outlander series so long ago, but it refreshed my memory and how much I adored the time travel romance. The characters and acting seriously hooked me and I can tell the series is going to be a success on the small screen.

For me I have a couple series I'd love to see adapted, such as: Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, Allie Beckstrom series by Devon Monk, Mythos Academy by Jennifer Estep, just to name a few.

With True Blood ending I know many are looking for the next big book to TV hit, so I have to promote Outlnader because it was that freaking fantastic, but also would like to recommend Bitten on Syfy because season 2 is right around the corner and Kelly Armstrongs series was seriously well done. It may not of followed the book completely but I actually liked it better.

So here is my question for you: If you could pick a series or a stand alone to be brought to the big or small screen which one would it be and why? Also who can you see as the leads?


  1. I know the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness has been purchased for the big screen. I could see it doing well. I'm enjoying Bitten, by Kelley Armstrong on TV. I would love to see Mercy Thompson and the Alpha and Omega series, which overlap and could be put together on TV or into a series of movies.

    One author I hope never gets purchased for TV or movies is Ilona Andrews. Don't get me wrong, I love their work and would love them to make the extra money. I just don't think Hollywood is up to creating their creatures. I'm listening to their most recent book that just came out this week, Magic Breaks. Kate is trying to catch a BunnyCat. The descriptions are great and I can see it in my head. I don't know that even with CGI, that Hollywood would do it justice.

  2. Yay!! So nice to meet another Bitten fan :) Its just starting to pick up hype after the second season got picked up. so EXCITED!!

    I totally agree with you about a crossover with Mercy and Alpha and Omega on tv would be freaking awesome!!

    I'm so with you on the CGI, some movies with supernatural creatures have been really well done and seriously done bad, so its up in the air when it comes to development on that. I'm always worried when studios pick another book to adapt in hoping it doesnt get ruined lol

    Thanks for the comment!
