Books For Thought is a weekly feature at La Femme Readers where each Monday Eleni posts a book-related question up for discussion.
Which book would make a great TV Show?
I suppose in order for a book to be a good TV show it needs to either be a series or something high concept, because otherwise the plot of the book would run out within a few episodes. There are a lot of books I could see being great movies, but a great TV show would take a little something extra.
Here are some suggestions:
Private series by Kate Brian -- these books have already been turned into webisodes, so there's obviously a production value to them. They would really be perfect for a CW series, though. There are plenty of characters, and there are so many crazy happenings in each book that you would definitely be able to make a series out of them.
Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter -- this is a book series AND it's high concept; I dare you to tell me that boarding school for spies doesn't sound like a cool TV show.
Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart -- It would be easy to draw these books out into a series, what with all the different boys and scenarios that play out. Plus couldn't you just see Ruby writing a blog or making vlogs, and having either the videos or voiceover as a main style of the series?
Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead -- So I guess these ones are becoming a movie series, but each book could easily be a season of TV. More time with Rose, Adrian, Lissa, Dimitri, Christian, etc? Yes please!
So I guess my suggestions all turned out to be book series.
What do you think? Which of your favourite TV series would you like to see on the small screen?
