Booking Through Thursday (21) Conversions

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.
The BTT question of the week is:
Do you find yourself thinking that the books you read would be good on film? Do you wish the things you watched on TV or in the movies were available as book?

Some really can’t be converted, of course, but some definitely can (and it’s not always the ones you think will work). There’s something to be said for different forms of media, but a good story is universal … or is it??
I wish that some of the books I read, particularly those with action scenes, would be adapted into film - such as the cases of The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth and Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick. You'd notice that both of these books are dystopian but some books like the steampunk ones would also be good on film. The only thing that I dread is that the film would not do the book justice. Like some books-to-films I could mention.

However, I've can't think of films that I'd want to read as a book. Well, there is one but I could faintly remember what it was.

  1. When you mentioned dystopian, I could think of some that I loved in book and movie form, like The Handmaid's Tale...and then I thought of When She Woke, and hoping it will come to screen. But here's MY THURSDAY MEMES POST

  2. I don't know whether I'd want to see any movies adapted into books, but I generally like movie adaptations, even though they don't always do justice to the book. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Some books are exciting as a movie, but you don't want to see it ruined either.

  4. If you could see a lot of action in a book, it might make it on screen.
