Hey booknerds! It’s another Top 5 Wednesday post! This is hosted by Sam over on Thoughts on Tomes where you share you top 5 for the chosen topic for that week. You can check out each weeks topic over on Goodreads.
This weeks topic is classics I wish had modern adaptations.
So these are classics that I love but I don’t’ think have any modern retellings yet and I think it would be really interesting to see modern retellings of these and what would change or stay the same to make the story work.
1 Little Women by Louisa May Alcott – I adore this book and though it seems a really popular book I don’t think I’ve seen a modern adaptation of it
2 The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald – I wonder what this book would be like if it was set in modern times. The addition of social media would definitely add more complexities into the story I think
3 The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – This story was one of my favourites when I was younger and I would love to see what it would be like in modern day
4 Macbeth by William Shakespeare – This is one of my favourite Shakespeare stories and I would love to see a modern adaptation of it
5 The Time Machine by H.G. Wells – what would the time machine look like if it was created in the modern day? How would things be different? I would love to see it!
So these are the books I chose, let me know what you would want a modern retelling or adaptation of.
If you know any modern adaptations of these then do let me know!
