Books I Would Love To See Adapted

There’s been some talk recently about books being adapted so it got me thinking again about what books I would love to see adapted into a tv show or film. I just want to see more diverse books being picked up for adaptation! Please adapt diverse books!

So here are my favourite books I want to see adapted:

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

AFE38C57-AF0C-46F7-A60B-7A386EB88E45

Look I need this to be adapted into a tv show but adapt it EXACTLY as the book! Imagine seeing Daevabad on screen, imagine seeing the palace and all the mythical creatures and my Alizayd!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

3D9FD097-DA22-4191-AF6B-F52A33D06AFF

This is another book that would make an amazing tv show so we could see all the details. The tasks that Laia and Helene have to do would look epic and brutal on screen!

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

C2C592F5-B123-4E8E-8BE4-31349B362809

I had heard this was optioned but then never heard anything again about it so please make this a tv show! Imagine seeing Khalid say those beautiful lines to Shahrzad and the beautiful world and imagery that Renee has created.

Love From A To Z by S.K. Ali

A57A89B4-86E5-4B10-8839-F43559739361

Give me my halal love story on the big screen! Let me see my hijabi falling in love while still embracing her faith. Please! I need it!

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon

I love this rom com so much and I need to see it on the big screen! The body positivity and the absolute adorableness I need to see it!

Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin

3A51D877-857B-4E7C-889F-1E591FEEF610

This Pride and Prejudice retelling with Muslim characters absolutely and entirely deserve to be on the big screen! Imagine the angst and tension between Ayesha and Khalid and being able to watch it on the big screen!

So here are the books I would love to see adapted! What books would you love to see adapted? Would you prefer a tv show or film?

  1. I’d be stoked for adaptations of all, but my top picks would be An Ember in the Ashes and The City of Brass (of COURSE!). I would probably die from joy if they adapted TCoB.
