Good morning Wednesdayers, I hope all is bright and bookish on this illustrious sixteenth day of the ninth month of the two thousand and sixteenth year. This week on Top 5 Wednesday the topic is:
September 14: Books You Want to See as TV Shows
–With fall TV season starting up, this seems relevant.
Many of the books I like or love are already in movie format because coincidentally I appreciate books with film adaptation and vice versa. I am not good at following TV shows because I am not patient for tuning every week for another episode. However, if a few of the series I read as a child or a few from some series as an adult, why not and I can play catch up.
P.S. I tried researching to verify if any of the following books are not already TV Shows BUT if you know differently please do let me know.
Let us dive into it:
- Malory Towers Series by Enid Blyton
Simply because this series is probably THE best boarding school journey and why not have it on the screen.
- Alex Cross Series by James Patterson
There is a film adaptation for one book of the series but I think the rest of the stories (which I read a mere 3 out 24 books) would make a good TV show.
- The Cavendon Series by Barbara Taylor Bradford
I have read only The Cavendon Women but the setting of the story and the plot flow suggests that the series is similar to a series that I like : Downton Abbey. So why not to the big screen.
I combed through the bookish side of my brain, Goodreads list and Google but every story that I would like to see on the screen is already on the screen, some I did not know so I have more film adaptations to watch. Yay me!
