Who doesn’t love a good adaptation? I mean I know I do, when it’s good that is. Sometimes adaptations can go very very wrong (*cough*Eragon*cough*) and sometimes they can be better than the books (Netflix’s Bridgerton is way better). So, here are 5 books/series I think would make great TV/Movie adaptations.
I know, the title of this blog may seem blasphemous, but hear me out. As readers, we’re loyal to the source material and no movie or TV show could ever adapt our favourite books the way they deserve. I myself am a strong believer that the book is always better, but in some rare cases I think we can argue that the movie/TV show was ACTUALLY better.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a bookworm despises the movie or television tie-in versions of a book. Or, at least, that’s the impression. However, I am here today to shout of some books that actually didn’t do that bad.
So, if you read books, you’ve no doubt heard countless times the age old idiom of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. While I will say that I do not judge the contents of a book by the cover, the cover is definitely what influences me to buy a book first.
