QUESTION OF THE WEEK: #22 – Take that to the big screen!

Boys in our Books Friday Question of the Week!

Each week we’ll ask a question about your reading experience. Our review team will give our answers and we encourage you to join in and comment with your answers as well!  Let’s talk about BOOKS! :)


What book/series would you LOVE to see made into a tv show or movie?


Ha! easy! Immortality is the Suck. This book is made for the camera.


Without a doubt: Fatal Shadows (I’m talking the entire series here). The mystery! The shenanigans! Adrien! Jake! MY HEART.


You know, I’m so scared a TV or movie adaption would butcher my mental image for certain characters and the ambiance (look what happened to Witchblade), but curiosity would probably get the better of me if The Administration series was made into a TV series.


As much as I would like to say Captive Prince, I would be crushed to have HBO ruin it by casting Tom Cruise as Laurent or some silliness that would ruin the perfectly painted picture in my head. So I will have to say I do think The Rifter Series by Ginn Hale would be entertaining to watch.


Book to movies never work out for me. I am way too picky and trust me, if I have read the book, you do not want to see the movie with me. But… The Cut & Run series would be a great TV show or mini series? Do they still do mini series? Did I just show my age? Or could the BBC jump on the Enlightenment Series and bring Murdo and David to me, I mean the small screen? Or Slide/Rare as a movie? Oh boy.


I love watching historical/fantastical epics like Game Of Thrones so with that in mind; I choose Ginn Hale’s incredibly stunning Rifter series. 




PsyCop would definitely be fabulous on the big screen, as well as The Rifter series. However, I would LOVE to see the boys from A Better Man and A Hunted Man, The Men of Halfway House in the theaters. Yup, I’d stand in line all day for a ticket to their show.


IF someone could do it justice, I’d DIE to see In the Company of Shadows produced! But it would HAVE to star Jason Muirbrook and Boyd Holbrook or forget it. :)  I’d also love to see any of my historical trifecta produced: the Enlightenment series by Joanna Chambers, Charm of the Magpies series by KJ Charles, or the Whyborne & Griffin series by Jordan L. Hawk.


Jordan Castillo Price’s Psycop would be an awesome TV series. Not only does it have multiple mysteries, but lots of great characters. (HBO? Showtime? Are you listening?)


Bone Rider comes to mind, though there’s plenty I wouldn’t mind seeing on the big screen. ;-)

      I second the casting of C&R. Those boy ARE Ty & Zane. :o)

    Bone Rider by J. Fally as a big, crazy, full of explosions blockbuster movie. :)
    Oh, Rifter or PsyCop as TV show would be awesome.

    I am late to answer this question of the week — I think some of my auto-answer will apply. BUT, I am going to go differently this time and answer “HARPER FOX’s ‘Tyack & Frayne series’ — simply because I thought with Harper Fox’s description of places and the tone of the book, it will be gorgeous to translate it visually.

    I was reminded this morning of Faith & Fidelity by Tere Michaels and when I read this question I thought of it again. It might do well on screen.
    The Enlightment series by Joanne Chambers, done by the BBC. Or Scrap Metal by Harper Fox because the scenery in Scotland.

    Thinking of vampires and werewolves there must be something in m/m to replaceTwilight!

    As a general rule, show/movie adaptations tend to be disappointing to me. . That said, don’t occur to me any book or series with action and/or paranormal elements that I would like to see on screen..
    But I would choose Heatstroke of Taylor V. Donovan, I believe that it has a features mix that do it ideal for an adaptation to the big screen.

    Cut & Run but it can’t star Karl Urban and Eric Bana. I haven’t found my Ty yet, but my Zane is Joe Manganiello. I also would love to see ICoS made into a movie.

    Whyborne and Griffin, no question!
    The Cole McGinnis series – yummy!

    Ahhh… Excellent question!!
    1. I would also love to see a good production of “In The Company of Shadows”. I also agree with Jason & Boyd starring in it.

    2. “Memorizing You”, by Dan Skinner. I just loved that book and I truly think that if produced well it would be amazing.

    3. Slide, by Garrett Leigh.

    4. Aftermath, by Cara Dee.

    5. Second Chances, T.A Webb.

    6. Maybe “The Return”, by Brad Boney. And I’m gonna stop here… lol

    “Psycop” would make an awesome movieor TV Series, too.

    Lots of good suggestions!

    I’d like to see the Shadow of the Templar series on the screen, but only if the author (or me) could have complete control of the production, including choosing the actors. ;)

      Oh yes, forgot about that one, that would be fun to watch

    “Bone Rider” for certain; it’s a blockbuster waiting to happen.
    “Magpie Lord” would be a lot of fun. Or “Whyborne and Griffin”
    With good casting, “Glitterland” or “Loving Jay”
    “Turbulance” – a fun sci fi movie
    “Kestrel’s Chance” for the story in the gorgeous scenery

    The key is always going to be author control though, and casting will make or break them.

    I’d love Eden Winters’ Diversion series, Clare London’s Say A Little Prayer, or Ethan Stone’s Bartender, P.I. And I second Heatstroke!
