It seems there have been quite a few Book to TV series adaptations. I say TV but I guess it is usually cable or Netflix series. I am going to highlight some of my recent favorites and ones I am looking forward to. I would love to know yours as well.
Books to TV Series That I Have Seen/Or Are Currently Watching
I loved the books but there were so many characters that I had to start making a list of how they were all connected. That is one of the reasons I like the HBO series, it is easier to keep track of all the kingdoms and characters.
I haven’t quite finished the Netflix series yet but it is so good! It seems to be pretty faithful to the book. I have five episodes left.
I am ashamed to say that I have only read a couple Sherlock stories. I found them difficult to read and understand. However, the BBC series is fantastic! The first 3 seasons can be found on Netflix and the 4th season was on my local PBS channel.
Book To TV Series That I Will Be Watching Soon
My sister-in-law got me hooked on this book. She had watched the HBO series and started reading the novel and asked if I wanted to buddy read it with her so of course I said yes! I am about a third of the way through the book and it is really good and humorously accurate. I look forward to watching the HBO series soon. I love the three actresses that are in this adaptation.
Book To TV Series That I Am Looking Forward To.
The Handmaid’s Tale has been made into a movie more than once but this is the first time, I believe, that is will be a series. It begins April 24th.
I am so EXCITED for this HBO series!!! If you don’t know, Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for JK ROWLING!!! This murder mystery series is amazing of course because JKR is amazing. There is no definite date for when this series starts.
