Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

1.) „Felix Ever After“ by Kacen Callender

48849624. sy475

I put „Felix Ever After“ on my September TBR and I intend to start it next week. I’ve been looking forward to read this for ages and I’m so glad my library had it in its shelves! It’s one of the few books I know about that actually have a transgender MC so I’m very excited to read Felix’s story. Also I’m absolutley in love with the cover! It’s so lively and realistically unapologetic!

2.) „Ninth House“ by Leigh Bardugo

52092876. sx318 sy475

To be honest I started this yesterday and I’m soo ready to read „Ninth House“! I’ve never read dark academia before and I heard that a lot of people would place this book in the genre. So far I’ve loved every book I read from Leigh so I’m pretty certain I’ll enjoy this one as well. It might be darker than the others but I’m definitely ready to explore this darker side of Leigh’s writing! 😉

3.) „Railhead“ by Philip Reeve

23532981

The Yoongi to my V spoke so much about this series that I couldn’t help but get curious about it. So when I recently discovered that my library actually has „Railhead“ I just couldn’t resist to borrow it. *lol* I’m sure Sabrina waited for me to read this ever since I spoke about it in my last library haul video on my BookTube channel! So yep, it’s autumn and I’m finally going to tackle this. XD

4.) „Rebel“ by Marie Lu

42121526

So I recently finished to read the Legend trilogy! And after THAT kind of ending I knew I couldn’t let it stand like that! I mean ARGHAADKLFASFJSAKDJS! Marie Lu always kills me with her endings and I just needed more after the finale of „Champion“. Thankfully I stumbled upon this in my library and I have every intention to read it and to hopefully get an ending I can live with. *lol*

5.) „The Gravity of Us“ by Phil Stamper

44281034

„The Gravity of Us“ has been on my radar for quite a while and the idea of a LGBTQ+ book that also tackles the topic of spacetravel is just too intriguing to let it go unnoticed! XD I already love the concept of this and I’m very curious how this is going to play out. Guess I’ll find out this autumn! *lol*

6.) „My Dark Vanessa“ by Kate Elizabeth Russell

55820574. sy475

Now here’s a book that doesn’t only have an intriguing topic but also a very serious one and I’m sure to read this will be tough. Still, I really want to know what’s all the fuss about. A lot of people said that it wasn’t their cup of tea and others said that „My Dark Vanessa“ was hard to read but that the way the story was told is brilliant. So yeah, the controversial opinions about it made me curious which caused this to land on my TBR. You know I can’t resist controversial books. *lol*

7.) „The Guest List“ by Lucy Foley

51933429

I really don’t know much about this book except of that it plays on an island and that it’s about a wedding. Oh yes, and that it is a mystery thriller. XD So I guess it’s fair to say that I know next to nothing about „The Guest List“. It was a goodreads choice winner of 2020 though and lots of people spoke about it back then. For me that’s enough reason to give it a try as a Halloween read! 😉

8.) „Mexican Gothic“ by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

53152636. sy475

And here comes my second Halloween read for this year. This entire book gives me a haunted house and cursed family vibe and I don’t know if you already know this about me, but I LOVE vibes like that! *lol* I’m the first one to read a book about a house with millions of hidden doors and even more hidden secrets about its owners. XD So yep, this is going to be fun. Hopefully.

9.) „Heartstopper: Volume Three“ by Alice Oseman

43449920. sy475

After all the darkness (or gloom and doom if you want to call it like that *lol*) I need something light and nothing is better than Alice Oseman’s „Heartstopper“! My library recently got volume three and of course I had to borrow it. I’m really looking forward to be reunited with Nick and Charlie! Because those two boys are precious!!! ❤ (Plus: The entire cast of „Heartstopper“ is amazing!!)

10.) „Love, Creekwood“ by Becky Albertalli

53239539. sy475

I wanted to read this for what feels like a lifetime and this autumn I finally decided to go for it! I need more of Simon and Blue and I’m really curious what happened after the two former books in the Simonverse! I guess this will be some sort of epilogue that will hopefully give me all the fluffy feels and will make me very happy. No high expectations and no pressure. Really, Becky! *lol*

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which books are on your fall TBR and do we have some in common? Do you have special books you want to read for Halloween and if yes, are they very creepy? As you all know I’m a scaredy fox and I’m always looking for nice horror books that aren’t too heavy. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In One Sitting

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: : Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)

Ohhh, this is going to be fun! Also just 10 books and series? Oh gosh! This is going to be tough, I read so many books that would fall into this category. Okay, let’s see what will pop into my mind first. XD

1.) Lord of the Rings by. J.R.R. Tolkien

727798

I got the entire trilogy for Christmas when I was 13 years old and I read all three books in one week. *lol* I was basically glued to the pages and only stopped reading when I needed to eat something, had to go to the toilet or had to sleep. My family was laughing so much because they couldn’t understand my obsession. XD Looking at it in retrospective I think LotR was my epic fantasy awakening. *lol*

2.) Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

72193. sx318 sy475

Okay, I think everyone who was ever a Harry Potter fan read those books in one sitting, right? I mean whenever the next one came out my family and friends knew that they couldn’t disturb me for the next couple of hours. I just had to read them really fast and I gobbled them up like nobody’s business. Which constantly led to a book hangover, because I had to wait another year or two for the next book to come out! Fun times. *lol*

3.) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

17927395. sy475

I still remember the spring in which I started to read this series and I never regretted it. ACOTAR was the first Sarah J. Maas book I ever read and it got me totally hooked. I loved everything about the first book then went through the masterpiece that is book two and finally reached the ending after finishing the last page of ACOWAR. What a journey! ❤

4.) The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

17259690

„The Foxhole Court“ is one of the books that totally caught me by surprise. A lot of my favourite bloggers and reviewers talked about it but I still didn’t get the hype. Well, at least not until I picked it up and immediately got hooked! *lol* Like seriously!!! There’s something about this story that made it impossible to let go of this book. I was OBSESSED with Neil and Andrew and I still am!!! XD Truth be told, I just started to read the second book and I don’t think I’m ready for this kind of obsession but you know… I just NEED to know! ;-P

5.) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

17347389

Rarely did a series touch me as much as „The Raven Cycle“! I lived and breathed this series and for a couple of months it was the only thing I could think of! Yes, I was THAT besotted with it. Still am if I’m honest. ;-P There’s just something about all the characters and the magic of this series that got me totally addicted. But honestly, I wouldn’t want to have it any other way. The Raven Boys will always be in my heart! ❤

6.) Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

22571663

I still remember the first time I read this series. Back then I was still in the closet and to read this felt like some sort of forbidden guilty pleasure. It was basically the first m/m book/series I ever read and probably not the best start for someone who’s still in the closet but I didn’t mind. Haha! I guess to read this series was sort of liberating and after the cuteness of book 2 and 3 I was totally excited about it. (Book one is a rough start but it only gets better with book 2!) I think in some way this series gave me the strength to come out and the next time I read it, I did it openly without hiding it anymore. =)

7.) The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

23395680. sy475

Ha! Everyone who ever read this series knows how addicting it is. *lol* Like you start with the first book and think: Oh the formatting is kinda weird, but okay?! And before you even know it you’re right smack in the middle of the plot and bite your fingernails because you just NEED to know how it continues!! Been there, done that, got the freaking t-shirt and I’ve been wearing it proudly ever since! Haha! ;-P

8.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

19547856

Ahhh Simon! This book was so full of cuteness that I just couldn’t put it down. I could relate to Simon so much and his conversations with Blue kept me glued to the pages. I remember wanting to read this slowly but before I even knew it I was halfway through the book and spammed the feeds of my goodreads friends with updates! *lol* My last update of this book was literally: „OMG! I can’t stop to read this book! I need to know!!!“ So I guess that says it all! XD

9.) The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

41865

„Twiligt“ is an „old“ series or well, relatively old if you consider the fact that the first book was published in 2005. So this is actually one of those series I read in one go! It was summer, my sister and her bf were on a holiday and I had their entire flat to myself. Needless to say that I locked myself up in their flat with food and other supplies and didn’t come out before I had finished the entire series. *lol*  I was 20 back then… ahh I feel old now! >_< Haha!

10.) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

13455782

„Shatter Me“ is one of those series I only discovered after joining goodreads but I’m really so glad that I did! XD I loved this series to bits and pieces and the writing style as well as the love story totally blew me away! I still want a bf like Aaron Warner and I think this will never change. ❤ I rushed through the entire series in about 2 weeks and this even though I could only read it when my kid was sleeping. *lol* So that should say it all. 😉

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Do we have some books in common? And if yes, did you rush through them as well? Can you recommend me a book that will glue me to its pages?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is:  Book Quotes that Fit X Theme (Pick any theme you want, i.e., motivational quotes, romantic dialogues, hunger-inducing quotes, quotes that fill you with hope, quotes on defeating adversity, quotes that present strong emotions, healing, etc. and then select quotes from books that fit that theme.)

Okay, I decided to go for great book quotes here because there are so many and I love quotes no matter if they are serious or funny! ;-P They are just great quotes and fit no particular theme though. So I guess you might say this is my somewhat own spin on this topic. *lol*

1.) “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” – „Six of Crows“ by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I remember reading „Six of Crows“ for the very first time and I was so thrilled by all the amazing banter and the great quotes. Leigh Bardugo wrote a masterpiece with this duology (that’s going to be a trilogy at some point!) and some of the quotes she came up with are epic and will be remembered for ages! Also when I saw that they used some of the quotes as the titles for the episodes of the „Shadow and Bone“ Netflix series I was totally over the moon! ❤

2.) “Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” – „The Wicked King“ by Holly Black

26032887. sy475

Okay, but seriously, Cardan’s quotes in this series and his attitude are one of a kind and I just couldn’t get enough of this faerie! I’m such a sucker for Cardan and when I wrote my „The Wicked King“ review I said he could easily be the 8th member of BTS. *lol* Big mistake! Now I can’t unthink it anymore and whenever I picture Cardan in my mind I see V now. Haha! Honestly though! Tae when he wears those golden contact lenses and has dark hair?! *screams in Cardan*

3.) ”War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who remains.” – „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

There are so many amazing quotes in „The Poppy War“ it’s really hard to pick just one, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go with this one. It’s very true and when I read it in the book this really hit me. For me „The Poppy War“ was quite a challenging book because at some points I actually had to put it aside in order to digest what I read. Not gonna lie, I’m still not over a lot of the things that happened in here and I’m also still working on finding the courage to read book two.

4.) ”Fear was Can’t.
Fear was Won’t.
But fear wasn’t ever a choice.” – „Darkdawn“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Fear is a recurring topic in „The Nevernight Chronicles“ and it’s like a thread that’s running through the entire trilogy. There’s a lot of discussion about fear and the different shades it can come in, as well as how it motivates, paralyzes or inhibits us and guides our actions. I always like things like this in my books so I really enjoyed that Jay Kristoff addressed this as a topic in his books.

5.) “The trouble with denial is that when the truth comes, you aren’t ready.” – „We Are Okay“ by Nina LaCour

28243032

This was one of the few grief reps I had the pleasure to read and I really liked it. A LOT! Nina LaCour is such a skilled writer and she conveys the different emotions of grief so well. Plus everything she wrote in here is true and that really hit me in the feels. If you’re interested in a good grief rep and haven’t read this book yet I can totally recommend it!

6.) ”Asking to hold a musician’s instrument is roughly similar to asking to kiss a man’s wife. Nonmusicians don’t understand. An instrument is like a companion and a lover.“ – „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074

And here we go with another book that’s full of great quotes! Today I decided to chose the one about music instruments because it resonated so much with me when I read it. *lol* I feel exactly the same way about my bass and guitar and whenever someone wants to touch them I’ve to suppress the urge to clutch them. XD Also I agree: an instrument is really like a companion and a lover. *lol*

7.) ”My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.“ – „The Raven Boys“ by Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

I feel this quote on so many levels it’s not normal anymore. There are often times in my life when I feel exactly the same way Gansey feels while he says that. Sometimes we just can’t seem to be able to choose the right words and no matter how much we try, they still come out wrong and we’re misunderstood. I love this quote so much and I think about it often so it definitely had to land in here! XD

8.) ”Your love is worthless. It’s your hate I need.” – „King of the Dark“ by Ariana Nash

54359996. sy475

Vasili’s words are so ruthless and cruel, yet this quote has some unexplainable allure for me. *lol* I can’t really describe it but something resonated with me when I read it. Maybe it’s because I’m a person that believes that love can conquer everything and to hear that he doesn’t want love but hate instead is oddly fascinating? It implies that hate is the stronger emotion, but I think Vasili will stand corrected by the end of that trilogy. Or well, at least I hope he will. *lol*

9.) ”Listen and learn it, learn to tell it, and tell it to teach it.” – „A Charm of Finches“ by Suanne Laqueur

33299920. sx318

I think this is a great motto to live by and just one of the many reasons why I loved „A Charm of Finches“ so much! This book is really great and it tackles so many tough topics I had to cry mulitple times while I read it. Yet at the same time it’s one of the most beautiful books I ever read as well. Suanne!!! Damn why do you write such great books? XD My emotions are still all over the place!

10.) ”Don’t let him escape!” said Mum. “This could be your only chance at securing a spouse!” – „Radio Silence“ by Alice Oseman

41827561. sy475

I had to laugh so hard when I read this in „Radio Silence“! Frances’s mother was such a great character and I really love that parents are always an important part in Alice Oseman’s books. Unlike in other YA books they actually play an active role in their childrens lives and I think we definitely need more reps like that!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which kind of quote theme did you chose for this „Top Ten Tuesday“ topic? Did you like the ones I chose and if yes which one was your favourite? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you enjoy them too? Are you planning to read some of them?

Talk to me and let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday: Animals from Books

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Animals from Books (these could be mythical, real, main characters, sidekicks, companions/pets, shifters, etc.) (Submitted by Paige @paigesquared and Jennifer Y. @ Never Too Many to Read)

Okay, I think I’ll go with creatures and animals here because some of the characters I came up with are actually no animals. *lol*

1.) Syrinx from „Crescent City“ by Sarah J. Maas

44778083

Who wouldn’t want to have their own chimera as a pet? I mean Syrinx is so damn adorable and I just wanted to cuddle him whenever he appeared in a scene. I can imagine sitting down on my sofa at night and stroking his fur. *lol* I bet this would be soothing af! XD And exactly what I’d need after a long day at work. Everyone should have a Syrinx!

2.) Buckbeak from „Harry Potter“ by J.K. Rowling

BuckBeak (@FlyingBirdBeaky) | Twitter

Buckbeak was one of the magical creatures I loved the most when I read Harry Potter! (The dragons in book four though!! *lol*) Hippogriffs are such intriguing creatures and I love that you can only ride them when they approve of you. Manners are everything and those creatures have them down to a T. Also those soft feathers! Ahh to fly on Buckbeak must be amazing!

3.) Abraxos from „Throne of Glass“ by Sarah J. Maas

29559052. sy475

Abraxos is the best wyvern you will ever find! He has a heart of gold and even though he looks like a big bad dragon he loves flowers and is super soft! Seriously! I loved Abraxos so damn much! Manon was totally soft for him too and I lived and breathed for their friendship! ❤ I want an Abraxos as well! Where can I get one?! XD

4.) Nighteyes from „The Farseer Trilogy“ by Robin Hobb

77198

I always wanted to befriend a wolf and the bond between Fitz and Nighteyes is nothing but amazing! ❤ Nighteyes humour and sarcasm were everything and I really wish I would have a friend like him too! Fitz could always count on him and Nighteyes was the best companion anyone could wish for. Plus his playful side was totally amusing!

5.) The Whispering Skull from „Lockwood & Co“ by Jonathan Stroud

14059024

Yes, I admit it: I’m a fan of the whispering skull! Haha! But how couldn’t I be? That guy… erm… that skull is awesome! I had to laugh so hard whenever he made one of his sarcastic remarks and he really grew on me throughout the entire series! His love-hate relationship with Lucy was just great! *lol* And the moment when it was revealed who he was!!! Ahhh!! Not going to spoil here! Read the series and find out for yourself! ;-P

6.) Mr. Kindly from „The Nevernight Chronicles“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Quite honestly the not-cat is probably one of the best things Jay Kristoff ever invented. *lol* Well, okay AIDEN IS the best thing he ever invented but Mr. Kindly definitely comes in second. XD Now that I write this I just realized that I seem to have a weakness for sarcastic characters because Mr. Kindly most definitely has that character trait as well. Haha! Loved his battle of words with Eclipse and Mia. They were highly entertaining and Mr. Kindly is one of a kind! Moreover he could swallow my fears and if that wouldn’t come in handy then I don’t know! ;-P

7.) Arion from „The Heroes of Olympus“ by Rick Riordan

15714024

There are a lot of things that make Arion sort of special! For one he can run faster than the wind. His diet includes eating gold (which would be pretty expensive on the longrun, but I guess that’s exactly the reason why he’s sticking around Hazel) and he curses like a sailor! *LOL* What’s not to love??!!! I really want a horse like Arion now! I couldn’t afford to feed him though. XD

8.) The Suriel from „A Court of Thorns and Roses“ by Sarah J. Maas

16096824. sy475

I ABSOLUTELY loved the Suriel! I know some people might thing that’s crazy but the Suriel was legit one of the best characters in the ACOTAR series! It might have only been a side character and it might have looked creepy but it was amazing and had such a great personality! It was wise and kind of soft for Feyre and I lived for it! *lol* One of the most underrated side-characters ever! ❤

9.) Carver from „Deadmarsh Fey“ by Melika Dannese Hick

39889091. sy475

It’s been a while I read Melika’s book but Carver that little devilish fiend is still on my mind! And just in case you wondered: Yes, Carver is the faerie in the back that touches the boy’s shoulder! *lol* „Deadmarsh Fey“ was one of the best faerie books I ever read because it didn’t only hold to the legends and myths but also the atmosphere of the old house in the moor was just great! It had the right amount of spooky and Carver was such a nice villain! His biting banter with Roger was the best!

10.) Chainsaw from „The Raven Cycle“ by Maggie Stiefvater

20257177

And last but not least: Chainsaw from TRC! Of course Chainsaw made it on my list because Chainsaw is no normal raven but also a very special creature. She’s super intelligent and she can communicate with Ronan so that’s pretty amazing! I want a Chainsaw too! (Also the name!!! Haha! I love that Ronan named her Chainsaw!)

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Did you read the same books and do you like any of the bookish pets, creatures and side characters I mentioned? What are your favourite bookish animals from books?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies (submitted by Nushu @ Not A Prima Donna Girl)

I have way too many ideas so you’ll get my Top10 with 6 honourable mentions! *lol* Sorry, but there are a bunch of great book series I’d love to see on screen. DONE RIGHT, I may add! ;-P Everything they did with the Shadowhunters universe was such a disappointment! T_T So let’s hope those adaptions would be awesome! XD

Anyway, let’s start with the fun! *rubs hands*

Rankenzeile

1.) Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

41150487. sy475
Now if that wouldn’t be the perfect book to make into a movie, I dunno! I’d love to see this rom-com on screen and I’d probably be swooning and laughing throughout the entire movie. *lol* The English/American gang was amazing and I’d love to see Alex’s mom and dad on screen! Also Henry… ahh I’d adore that precious cinnamon roll! ❤ Why is there no movie yet?! *lol*

 

2.) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

13519397There is no SJM fan who wouldn’t want to see this huge series of seven books on the screen! (Well, at least I don’t think there is. XD) This could be such an epic show and I’m sure it would be able to play in the league of „Game of Thrones“. The budget would have to be huge though because 7 books you could get clobbered over the head with would most definitely make for a lot of episodes. *lol*

3.) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

32768522 I love Simon and Baz and I’d probably die if I’d see their story on screen but damn I’d be so willing to die that slow and blissful death! ❤ This series is so cute and fluffy and way more original than you might think for some sort of HP fanfiction. Also I’d be really curious how they’d implement the idea of „The Insidious Humdrum“. I’m sure that would be kind of a challenge. 😉

4.) Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

305234

This was the first faerie series I was obsessed with and I would love to see it on Netflix! Irial, Niall, Seth, Leslie, Sorcha, gosh I love this series so much! I’m sure a lot of people would watch it (if it would be done right) and the fandom would grow! As it is „Wicked Lovely“ is probably one of the most underrated faerie series out there, which is sad, because Melissa Marr wrote this series long before „Throne of Glass“ and ACOTAR were even a thing! Marr is the godmother of cruel and cunning faeries and I love her so much for it! 😛

5.) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

36381037

Okay, admittedly so far I’ve only read „Cinder“ and a short story but they were both great and I’d really love to see how they’d adapt it to the screen. The idea of fairy tales that have an original sci-fi and dystopian spin is just too good and I’d love to see the cast for Cinder, Iko, Levanna and Prince Kai! I think to write this now made me want to continue with the series. *lol* Guess it’s time to go for „Scarlett“ soon! XD

 

6.) Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

23395680. sy475

I can’t think of a book series that would be more suitable for being a Netflix show than this one! I swear the entire time I read those books I was like: Damn! This would be such a suspenseful movie!! Truth be told to read this actually felt like reading a movie so I’d love to see Netflix’s take on this series. Also I want to swoon over Kady, Ezra, Nick and especially AIDAN!!! *lol* ❤

 

7.) Arc of a Scythe by Neal Shusterman

28954189

I just love everything about those books. The idea of a world in which no one has to die and the Scythedom regulates the population by randomly gleaning people is such an intriguing concept. Take all the other things that are part of this and you’ve the concept for an amazing dystopian series. Also the questions that are posed in each and every single book! Ahh! I’m sure if I’d see this only as a movie my mind would be as boggled as after watching „Inception“ for the very first time. *lol*

 

8.) Lockwood & Co by Jonathan Stroud

13555073

This would be THE series to watch after Supernatural! XD Okay, it would be more middle grade and less X rated, but I’m sure it would be at least as scary. 😛 I wish this series would have existed when I was a kid because I would have loved it so much! Stroud’s world building is amazing and I’m convinced this would have even more fans as a Netflix series. 😉 I mean „Stranger Things“ does have a lot of fans too even though most of the MCs are kids. XD I’m sure this would work here too.

 

9.) Villains Series by V.E. Schwab

40874032. sy475

This just needs to be a movie/show!!! Period! I would love to see Victor and Eli on screen and ahh I’d probably die if they would manage to assemble a great cast! ❤ I swear just to see Victor Vale on TV would give me a heart-attack. I love him so much and I love that this series is all morally grey and that you don’t know if you hate or love the characters. *lol* Yes, „Villains“ definitely would make for a fast paced and intriguing Netflix show! I NEED it NOW!!!

 

10.) Gentleman Bastard by Scott Lynch

865293
I love this series so much, especially because it’s so cleverly done. You have to keep your wits about you in that one and there are so many lies and deceptions that it’s not easy to identify them all. ;-P Also the world building!!! It’s marvellous! Just to see Locke and Jean in action would be enough for me! XD Those two are amazing and I’m honest here, I’d love to have a face for Locke. Since he’s a con man he fits in everywhere and is very conscious of his appearance so I always had difficulties to imagine him properly. *lol*

 

Honorable Mentions:

11.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Kvothe on TV? YES, PLEASE!!! I love my redhead and I’d be sooo down to see his journey as a Netflix show! Well, maybe one day Patrick Rothfuss will finally write the 3rd book and we’ll actually get a series! A boy can always dream, right? *lol*

12.) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

All I’m saying is: WARNER!!! ❤ Ahh oh gods, if they’d cast him right I’d probably drool and swoon throughout the entire series! And yes, this would have to be a series because there are 6 main books and a lot of novellas. So lots of potential and a good storyline. Give me Warner and Kenji! Please?! XD

13.) The Young Elites by Marie Lu

I’ve loved this series so much and I’d die to see Adelina and Raffaele on screen! I was always so curious about how they’d look and if they’d make it real good this movie series could be amazing! Also I think we need more series with morally grey characters and this one, well, it would be perfect! 😉

14.) Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb

Okay, I’d probably die a slow and painful death watching this show but I’d still love every second of it, because Fitz is one of my favourite fantasy characters ever and to see him suffer so much would be pure hell! Still, I love Fitz and the Fool and I’d be willing to accept the consequence of getting my heart ripped out as long as it’s done masterfully. ❤

15.) Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

Yes, I’m aware this is a controversial series but I’d still like to see it on screen. I mean obviously it’s not for a young audience but hey, lots of people watched „Game of Thrones“ and this even though it was cruel and brutal and had slaves in it. So I guess there would be a market for this one as well. Especially because from book two on this is one of the best enemies-to-lovers stories I’ve ever read and it’s AWEsome!!! ❤

16.) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

As far as I know there IS going to be a series, but I have no idea when it will come out and if it will be available for me. XD I would watch the hell out of this because as you all know TRC is one of my favourite book series ever and yes, I’m honest here, if the cast wouldn’t be okay I’d be devastated. *lol* So they better make an effort to keep to the books!!! Or – and I’m aware I’m repeating myself here because I feel so strongly about all those books and series I just mentioned – I might actually die! No pressure, right?! ;-P

17.) I wish I could say „The Shadowhunter World“ here but urgh, they made a movie and it sucked, they made a series and it sucked and by now I gave up hope that they’ll ever do it justice! >_< Apparently some things just aren’t meant to be on screen. *sighs*

So what do you think?! Are there any books/series you’d love to see on Netflix? Do you agree with my choices? Did I miss a book you’d love to see adapted? What’s your take on books being adapted into Netflix shows or movies? Yay or nay? And if „nay“ why?!

Talk to me and let me know! ;-P

And as always: Stay healthy and safe!

*hugs’n’kisses*
