That’s right, movies into books, no it wasn’t a typo.
There are so many books that have been turned into movies eg. basically all of the YA offerings. But what movie has been turned into a book? I know there’s the bad novel tie ins but I mean what if the movie’s characters and settings were used to make a book? So for this Top Ten freebie, I’m going to talk about why these following movies should be turned into books.
1. Mean Girls
Imagine a first person POV straight into Cady’s head and seeing how she changes and her character development. Also “You can’t just ask why someone’s white, Karen”
2. She’s the Man
Personally, I haven’t come across any gender bender stories and She’s the Man just does it so well. It’s adorable and the MC is really likable… it could easily be a contemporary! Amanda Bynes nailed it (refer to the gif above)
3. Mirror, Mirror
It’s not one the of the best movies out there but its setting is amazing. From the costuming to the “mirror” house to Snow White fighting, it put a great twist into the Snow White story.
This movie was just a bunch of fun. It’s a spy movie that isn’t serious and it shows from just the whole absurdity of the plot. I feel like Kingsman would be a contemporary however funny that sounds.
5. Suddenly 30
Jennifer Garner just made Suddenly 30 so good. It’s a coming of age story just that the MC goes from 13 straight to 30. I feel like it would make a really nostalgic book and it can be read by anyone basically from the ages of 13 to 30 😀
It’s basically a fairytale parody but with all the good fairytale things. This one would definitely be a 3rd person POV just so we can get inside the heads of everyone from the sweet innocent Giselle to the cynical of love stories Robert. Also “No, no don’t sing. Just walk” and “What they know this song too?”. Robert is actually me in a Disney movie.
