Characters are an important aspect of any novel and give depth to books, especially in the mystery and thriller genres. As a visual reader, I picture the atmosphere, the characters and their actions every time I binge a new book. Years ago, every time I started a new novel, I took notes on my iPhone, writing down which actors and actresses I imagined would play particular characters. This habit eventually led to the creation of my Instagram feed where I share books I read and who I think would play the characters in the movie adaptation. Here are 11 books that should be made into movies ASAP.
Final Girls by Riley Sager
The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell
The Broken Girls by Simone St. James
The Liar’s Girl by Catherine Ryan Howard
The Sandman by Lars Kepler
The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager
Let’s be honest, Riley Sager could write about aliens having food poisoning on planet Mars and I’d be dying to get my hands on a copy. His writing is masterful and captivates you as a reader. The plot seems very Pretty Little Liars meets Friday the 13th meets psychological suspense and I am here for it. I cannot wait to see what Sager does with this novel as his previous effort left me nothing short of breathless.
