Look at me joining on two Top Ten Tuesday memes in a row! This week we are actually supposed to be talking about Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies, but since me and my BF are currently looking for a new TV show to watch, I thought I’d take this opportunity to explore the TV world and see if I can find TV shows that appeal to me to watch this year.
Since we finished watching the Walking Dead (there is still one episode left but I don’t know when it will be released *emoji*), I’ve been really struggling to find something captivating enough to watch. We tried «Expanse» and it’s kinda “meh”, in my opinion. Then we tried «The Outsider» and once again it wasn’t that great. We are still watching «The 100», the last two episodes will be coming out this month, but that’s pretty much it.
If you know some great (preferably dystopian) shows, please leave your recommendations in the comments below!
Once again I couldn’t find 10 TV shows, so I’ll be sharing the 5 I found instead!
5 TV ADAPTATIONS I WANT TO WATCH
Normal People by Sally Rooney
This TV adaptation will be either hit or miss. I’m usually not a fan of drama and much prefer to watch a Sci-Fi, dystopian, or Fantasy TV show, but I’m very curious to see the messed up relationship between Connell and Marianne on screen. What does that say about me? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I’m definitely going to read the book first! Especially since it’s part of my “15 before 30” challenge. A year or so ago, we tried watching this series and I’m sure I fell asleep halfway through the first episode and we never continued with it.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Celeste Ng’s book «Little Fires Everywhere» wasn’t my absolute favorite, and when I heard that it was going to be adapted into a TV show, I wasn’t really interested. BUT! While I was compiling this list, I stumbled upon the trailer and OMG! Reese Witherspoon is amazing and just from watching the trailer, I was captivated!
Outlander by Diana Gabadon
It feels like everyone read and watched «Outlander» except me! I will try to see if my bf wants to start another long series and maybe we will like this one? Who knows!
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I haven’t read the book and I’m still not quite sure about the TV show. It looks interesting, but if you have any other suggestions I’ll be happy to switch it out. Lol
On a different note, there are two adaptations I’m very much looking forward to that hopefully will come out this year – «The Witcher» season 2 and «Dune»!
