"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Top Ten Tuesday (37)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. They'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of their bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on their post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share.  If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
The topic this week is: 
Top Five Books I Would Love to See as a TV Show/Movie
(set in a perfect world...in which the media doesn't butcher the books we love)

TV Shows:
  1. Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz - Um, hello?  This is Gossip Girl meets Dracula, but so much more awesome!  Vampires from the Upper East Side!  True Blue Bloods (do you get it?  because they're rich and privileged?).  I want it so bad I can't even explain.
  2. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga - It's Dexter for the teen crowd.  Such a creeptastic book, but so enthralling at the same time.  Jazz is my favorite messed-up, potential serial killer and I'd love to have him on my tv every week.
  3. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry - Zombies and bounty hunters?  Samurai swords and guns? Please say yes to this!  The way Maberry writes lends itself so well a an action packed episode every week.  And it has a niche audience already with all the lovers of The Walking Dead (I know this is already being made into a movie, but a girl can dream).
  4. Mothership by Martin Leitch and Isla Neal - A school for pregnant teens set in OUTER SPACE!  What more could you ask for?  Extremely funny, but chock-a-block full of action, pregnancy has never been more intense.  And your Teen Mom fans would love it; BAM, instant cult hit! 
  5. The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer - A book full of fairy tales come to life; defintie kid show success story.  It is a book full of whimsy, imagination, and just a little bit of fear, resulting in the perfect combination for a tv show.  Every kid would want to pick up Hans Christian Anderson and The Brothers Grimm after watching this show.
Those are my picks for my books to tv show must-haves!  If only a dream could come true (and not be screwed up in the process).  What are some of your wishlist books to tv shows/movies? Leave me a comment below!


  1. Great to see I Hunt Killers on your list!

  2. Nice! I HUNT KILLERS has been on a few lists - I guess I need to bump that up my TBR stack. I think ROT & RUIN would be fabulous as well!

  3. I totally love how you included Rot and Ruin and Mothership on your list! First of all, Rot and Ruin is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE books. People are obsessed with dystopian themes and zombies, so it would have a very large audience. Plus, Benny brings a new perspective on zombies. Next, Mothership would be a hilarious movie. A bunch of pregnant girls in space? Instant hit.
