It’s been years since I linked up with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday but I happened upon this topic and couldn’t resist!!! This is one of my favourite topics to talk about with book-loving friends so I had to put together a list of beloved series that I’d love to see adapted for Netflix (or another streaming service) someday!
- Lucy Parker’s London Celebrities series – I love these books and I think they would be so fun to watch on screen – British accents, hate-to-love, and sooo much fun.
2. Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series – this wacky family of brothers and one sister would make EXCEPTIONAL TV – I’d love to see the setting, in particular.
3. Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Gamache series – you know how much I love this series. It is basically my favourite of all time, really. The film adaptation of the first book is SO not good but I think it would adapt better to TV with better producers.
4. Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series – This series is abundantly fun and has some novellas too so there could be a lot of storylines to enjoy.
5. Nancy Campbell Allen’s Steampunk Romance series – these steampunk fairytale books are unlike anything I’ve ever read and would be exceptional for teens – so unique and would be incredible to see on a screen
6. Juno Rushdan’s Final Hour series – I can just picture the cliffhangers that would happen at the end of some episodes if this ever became a TV series. I think it would be a bit like Homeland.
7. Noelle Adams’ Pemberley House series – these novellas are modern retellings of Jane Austen’s books and I would LOVE to see these characters in a short mini-series. Give me all the modern Austen, please.
8. Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell series – Another series that I absolutely adore – it would be delightful to watch Stoker and Veronica banter on screen and the historical mystery element of this series would be fascinating for sure.
9. Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks series – gosh, I cannot stop talking about my love for this middle-grade series that is reminiscent of Little Women but set in modern times (and very much its own). I am constantly on the hunt for wholesome TV for my children and a series like this would fit the bill perfectly.
10. Ilona Andrews’ Hidden Legacy series – these books could easily appeal to men and women (a bit more than their covers suggest) on TV with all of the war-fighting and magic. So fun. I love a good urban fantasy.
