I could have stretched it to ten but I'm really kind of saying the same thing here...
c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
|one||Red Rising - Pierce Brown |
I know there are people who love this trilogy, but it seems to be WAY fewer than the number who should love this trilogy. This is the kind of high-concept world that could have movies! T-shirts! A TV mini-series! Theme parties! Especially now with a companion trilogy in the works. Would you be a Gold or a Blue? Come on, people love categorizing themselves based on overly simplified criteria!
The Diviners - Libba Bray
Okay, it doesn't help that there was a huge publishing gap and then that awful recent cover redesign (don't get me started) - but I do think this is the kind of fandom that could explode. With the 20s theme and diverse magical cast, it'd be the perfect movie to riff off of Fantastic Beasts.
|three||Something Strange and Deadly - Susan Dennard |
Victorian zombies! How is this not more popular? Sooz's first series has never gotten enough love, but if The Vampire Diaries could squeeze out 7 seasons and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could win at the box office, then Eleanor and her crew definitely deserve the silver screen and all the tie-in merchandise and midnight premiers that comes with it.
Dream a Little Dream - Kerstin Gier
No one else loves these books as much as I want them to. They'd make gorgeous movies or shows, with fancy dream worlds and cheeky British characters. Think of it! You could totally do a spin-off series once the books end, because there's so much material! It'd be like Pretty Little Liars meets The Magicians.
|five||Fate of Flames - Sarah Raughley |
This Pacific Rim meets teen superhero debut deserves its own movie series and video game tie-in. It's four badass girls with elemental powers fighting giant monsters. Can you imagine the marketing opportunities? The trading cards?
|six||The Grisha books - Leigh Bardugo |
These get plenty of love on book twitter but not enough from the world at large. With one companion duology already out and magic making a silver screen comeback, there's so much material here for movies, a TV show, collectibles, video games, Halloween costumes...
