TV adaptations I want to watch before the end of the year!

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.

It was a light easy read, a true fairytale. For some reason its simple storyline, naive characters, subtle romance, magic world and creatures made me very happy.

I wish I would have a physical copy of this book (I read it as an e-book) so I’d be able to bookmark every page that made me smile or just feel bubbly and childish so every time I have a bad day I’d go back and reread those quotes or pages to become a kid for just a little bit, believing in a good versus evil battle where the difference between black and white is crystal clear.

The book tells us a story of Tristran Thorn, a naive (as he seemed to me) young boy, his journey to prove his unending love for a beautiful girl, going through different adventures as he wandered in a mystical world, meeting magical creatures, some good some bad, some friends some foes.
