Fantasy Book to Movie Wish List- Part I


Turning fantasy books into movies remains a strong trend in Hollywood, from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  So here’s my list of books that I wish could get the page to screen treatment:

  • The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley – one of my all time favorites, I think Hari and her gang deserve some screen time, especially in the age of Star War’s Rey and Katniss Everdeen.
  • Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett – speaking of warrior women, several other books by my husband’s favorite author have gotten the miniseries treatment – can this one, or maybe Night Watch, be next?
  • The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater – this book wouldn’t even be that expensive to film.  Only the water horses themselves would require special effects – seriously, dual female and male protagonists with everything at stake racing violent magical horses on a Brit like island.  Why isn’t this already a movie?
  • The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley – actually I think most of Kearsley’s books with their light fantasy, historical interest, and well drawn love stories would make for great film.
