April 12th: Books That Would Make Good Video Games
–Since I’ve been in video game hell (in a good way) for the past year, this topic is timely. Remember, not all video games are action games! The Sims has proven that 🙂


Confession time: I don’t play many video games. I want to, but I am so bad at basically anything that isn’t Nintendo (and I suck at plenty of Nintendo games, too). So, I’m really unqualified for this topic, but I’m giving it a shot :/




A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab– Ok, I think it would be so freaking cool to explore this universe and play as your favorite character.








Anything from Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha-verse– I want to be a Grisha! Or break into the most secure prison in the world, or…Well, basically I want to do anything in that universe.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling– Yeah, they already exist, but I think most of us can agree that they could have been better. I want to actually take classes and stuff.






Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy– Magic! Victorian boarding school! Girls rebelling! Mystery! I may be alone in wanting this, but I still want it.







The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern– How would this work? Could it work? I honestly don’t know. It’s been a few years since I read it, but I remember thinking at some point after reading it that I would like to play a game based on it.



What are some books you think would make good video games?

If you’ve somehow found your way to this blog, hello! I created this blog for (mostly) book related posts. I’m not entirely certain about the potential content that will find its way here, but I have some ideas. I will probably use this space for reviewing books, posting short thoughts on what I’m reading (or planning to read), quotes, rants, etc.

  1. I was a little nervous about this week’s T5W, too, for pretty much the same reasons. And we wrote almost the same thing about The Night Circus!

  2. Wow, it would seriously be amazing to have a game set in the Grisha world. As you said I would love to be a Grisha and have special powers like they do. Or I would love to basically do anything in that world! 😀 Great list!

    Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy does sound like a good idea for a video game… a sort of Harry Potter esqe sort of world! I still have so many great books to read like the Grishna books!

    I haven’t played video games in a long time, so I skipped this week’s T5W, but if there were video games based on these books I would definitely start! So great choices!
