Now Hollywood is cashing on on that trend for the small screen, with 10 new shows this fall based on books, both new and classic. As an avid reader, I'm excited to hear this! Of course, the adaptations have to be done well, but I think starting with a great book provides a greater chance of ending up with a great TV show.
There are quite a few vampire adaptations here, which don't't really interest me much. Some of the others sound really intriguing, though. Interestingly, I haven't read any of the books these shows are based on, but maybe seeing a decent TV show will lead me to discovering some new reads!
The shows I'm looking forward to on this list include:
- Sleepy Hollow (I'm a sucker for time travel plots!)
- The 100
- Surviving Jack
- About a Boy (loved the movie)
Which of the shows on this list are you interested in watching? Have you read any of the books they are based on? I'm always open to suggestions!
