Cathy: I think the obvious answer is a book that I’ve written! However, I will choose Disclaimer by Renee Knight. It’s a thriller where a woman receives a book in the mail. When she starts to read it, she finds out that it’s about her, and it’s something she hasn’t told anyone.
Faran: I️ Will Save You by Matt De La Pena. It’s such a touching love story from the perspective of a heavily troubled teen, and it’s pretty much a thriller due to the suspense. De La Pena includes a clever twist, and I’d love to see how they pull that off on the big screen.
Melody: The book I’d most like to see made into a movie (besides my own) is Justin Cronin’s The Passage. It’s one of those meaty books with lots of characters (also the first in a trilogy), so maybe a television season for each book would be better.
Joanne: I’d like to see A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles made into a movie. In it, an aristocrat finds himself as a waiter after publishing a poem against the Russian regime in 1922. The historical shots of the old hotel and the city would look great on screen alongside a great tale of personal growth while Russian supremacy ruled.
Jonathan: My obvious response is my own, but putting that aside, I would love to see The Mysterious Benedict Society made into a movie. It was a fun book, dealing with smart kids, a mysterious school, and lots and lots of puzzles for them to solve, in order to get to the bottom of things. Would be a movie that I’d be buying tickets for already.
