The Broke and the Bookish is the Top Ten Books I'd Like to See as Movies or TV Shows. One of my guilty pleasures is the Lifetime or Hallmark movies that are based off books. The quality isn't always stellar but I always enjoy them!
2. Langston's Daughters, Baxters Draw and Alice's Portrait by Juliette Harper - Seriously Lifetime needs to pick this series up. It'd be great!
3. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King - With Sherlock being so popular right now I'd lvoe to see an adaption of King's version of the world of Holmes.
4. The Beekeeper's Ball by Susan Wiggs - The present day story line would feature beautiful orchards and rolling vistas and the World War 2 era story line would be gritty and heartbreaking.
6. Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee - This is such a wonderful retelling of the Snow Queen and I can't even imagine how beautiful that museum would look on camera
7. Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery - This is one of my favorites and now that I have a son who is close to military age and another one who is still little I weep while reading it. I would love to see this done and replace that unspeakable 3rd Anne of Green Gables movie.
Books That Already Are Movies:
8. A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery based of the Aurora Teagarden series by Charlaine Harris - This series is my favorite or Harris' several mystery series and is the closet to a straightforward mystery. This Hallmark movie focuses on one of my favorite books in the series (it involves an old house with secrets - go figure) and stars Candace Cameron Burre
9. Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder based off the Hannah Swensen series by Joanne Fluke - This is another Hallmark movie and features Allison Sweeney as the main character.
10. A huge variety of Nora Roberts books - Tribute, Midnight Bayou, Northern Lights, Angels Fall, Carnal Innocence, Montana Sky, Carolina Moon, Blue Smoke, and High Noon - These are by Lifetime and they're about as hokey as you'd expect but I always have fun watching them. Seriously guilty pleasure time.
