I’ve been reading so many great books recently, I thought I’d do a post about the books I’d like to see adapted, whether it’s to TV or film. These are books I think would also work as a TV show or film. And a lot of my recent reads have been Romance, so I figured I’d start with them. This list also might be slightly inspired by my recently, finally watching Bridgerton.
On a Night Like This – Lindsey Kelk
I read this so recently I don’t even have a review up yet! The way everything is described in this book would translate so well to screen. I can really picture this as a British-style Rom-Com, utilizing the contrasts between Fran’s life in Sheffield with the adventure she has. It would be amazing to see the luxury yacht and the Crystal Ball itself on screen, but equally compelling would be Juliette, the diva superstar Fran becomes a PA for. I completely fell into this world, and it would be make a great adaptation, plus you could sneak in a few cheeky celebrity cameos, too.
Kingscastle – Sophia Holloway
I wasn’t totally fussed on this book, unfortunately, but I think with the right cast, this could make an excellent adaptation, especially with the period piece aspect. I could imagine the wonderful costumes, and the houses, and the village. This would work so wonderfully on screen, and I think it’s one of those books that maybe missed the mark without the visual aspect.
The Ex Hex – Erin Sterling
This book was pure joy and would make such a fun TV series, especially with the danger and risks as the pair battle against the curse. And with the right leads cast, the chemistry between these two would translate so well. Plus, it’s a series! Already getting set up for multiple seasons!
That Could Be Enough – Alyssa Cole
I need this as a film. It’s such a beautiful book, and the moments between the Mercy and Andromeda are absolutely to die for. It also has a strong sense of Black joy – though some of the discriminations the women experience are in here, they’re not the point, and it’s much more about the characters overcoming their own pasts to be together.
The Meeting Point – Olivia Lara
This would make such a lovely film. The backdrop is perfect, the two leads have fantastic chemistry, and it plays out so well with a couple of good twists. This would be perfect to curl up with some popcorn and ice cream and just lose yourself in the story.
So there we have it – 5 of my recent Romance reads I would love to see adapted onto the screen! We just live in hope our favorites do get that adaptation and, of course, that it remains faithful to the book. If you’ve read any of these, do you agree? Would you like to see them on screen, or is there another Romance you’d prefer adapted?
