Where are all my gamers? I know I’ve discussed this very idea several times with my bookish friends. You read that one book, that could be the best TV series / Movie / Game if handled properly. Here are my top 5 choices for books that would make excellent video games:



I recently read Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller and LOVED IT. I would love the opportunity to play as a kick ass lady pirate, explore the ships, meet her crew and discover the many secrets of Alosa’s life. Read my review here!






Gilded Cage by Vic James is set in a dystopian and yet magical futuristic England. The political intrigue and many view points would make for an interesting concept. This would be mostly story and delving into the sordid past of the Equals. I would greatly love to see the use of the Equals abilities in action! Read my review here!







The Falconer series by Elizabeth May is so full of crazy steampunk meets killer faeries. Add in one badass human with her pixie sidekick and you are set for many planes of existence to explore and multiple scenarios to encounter. This could easily be expanded into more than just one character option with all the world building Elizabeth put into her books. Read my review here!





The Changeling series holds a special place in my heart. It’s the first “chapter book” series that my daughter loves. We are always acting her favourite scenes or playing make believe as the many characters from the book. I think would be a really amazing a fun game, especially for a group. Read my review here!






The Onyx Vial by Alexis Lampley is downright AMAZING. I love the magic of visiting different worlds through bookish portal magic! So many amazing characters, settings and with all that this motley crew encounters, it’s sure to be a beautiful game. Order your copy here.
