So To All The Boys I’ve Love Before finally got an adaptation, and so did The Kissing Booth. Does this mean it’s time for some more book to film adaptations? YES. So here’s the ones I think need doing (and some of the people I would cast)
1. Magpie Murders – Anthony Horowitz
I wouldn’t usually watch a film like this but if Benedict Cumberbatch was Atticus Pund?! Yes please. Or even if he was Alan Conway… or practically any other male character in this book. He just suits the feeling of the book perfectly.
2. Lyrebird – Cecelia Ahern
I would only be happy if this happened and the person playing Laura was Jodie Comer (Ivy Mozambique from BBC3’s Thirteen’ When I was reading the book she was exactly who I imagined.
3. The Undomestic Goddess – Sophie Kinsella
Samantha in this one is, wait for it… Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother’s Robin). Okay so I get that then Samantha couldn’t have an English accent, but I would be prepared to overlook that.
4. Rebecca – Daphne du Maurier
I know that this has already had a few adaptations, but it is desperately in need of a new one. I would have Jenna Louise Coleman play the narrator because she was who I just imagined as I was reading the book.
5. Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
This is the only one were I have no idea at all for who I would cast in it, but I just really NEED an adaptation of this! It’s one of my favourite books and it would make a brilliant series (maybe a movie, but I will only ever be happy with a series).
What book would you like to see adapted? Do you disagree with any of these?
