Seven Book-to-Series Adaptations I'd Love to Watch

Last week, it was reported that Netflix bought the rights of fifty literary projects. This book-buying spree includes Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, both set in the Grishaverse created by Leigh Bardugo and several novels written by Roald Dahl. I'm not always fond of when books are turned into television adaptations, may it be TV series or films, because there's always something missing or the characters and the settings are too different from how I pictured them in my mind. However, today I'm pushing my doubts and fears aside and I'm sharing with you seven books I'd love to be turned into television series.

The Nerdy Corner. TV Shows + 📚

September is here which means our favourite Autumn TV shows are coming back (as well as the most anticipated novels of the year are being release). 🍁 To celebrate it, inspired by Penguin's latest newsletter, I've decided to recommend books based on some of my favourite series. 

If you like Jessica Jones, you should try Wonder Woman:Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I've two words for you: women empowerment! Also, super-heroines. Who doesn't love them?

If you like Lucifer, you should try Angelfall by Susan Ee. Angelfall is a apocalyptic dystopia with angels, fallen angels, demons and lots of Heaven politics -God does not like to reveal His plans.

If you like Quantico, you should try Broken Sky L.A. Weatherly. Conspiracy. Wrong culprit. Plot twist. And more conspiracy.  

If you like Stranger Things, you should try Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.This one seems a little bit far-fetched, but both show and book feature a group of adorable misfits. Well, in Six of Crows is a dark-adorable group of misfits. 

If you like Supernatural, you should try Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. As Dean and Sam, Cas is a hunter -a ghost hunter that travels America to put an end to the dead. Spooky!

If you like The Expanse, you should try Starflight by Melissa Landers. Lots of space travelling and new planets to meet.

Any TV show/book you find alike?
