Friday 5 - Book Adaptations

So the five can be connections of any kind. Books can have been read last year or any year. Books can be used more than once.They may not have been read yet. They might be ones you just bought or want to buy.  It can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Maybe it’s not a list of actual books, but things connected to books – e.g. favourite book shops, recipes etc. It might even be five movies related to books or five poems or five poets or five bookish moments, five thoughts about reading – be creative! - The Book Date

Everyone talks about book to movie adaptations and today I wanted to share 5 of my favorite book to TV adaptations! These aren't in any order. 

Bridgerton season 1 is truly a masterpiece to me. Now, I did watch the first season before starting the books, so maybe I love it more than book readers. But I was so entranced. I watched it all in one sitting because I just couldn't stop! 

Before we go any further, I want to say that these are my favorite adaptations, not that they are the most faithful to the books.  

ONLY THE FIRST SEASON! I watched the second but didn't like it and never watched the rest, it should've been a one and done. Nothing has emotionally impacted me like this show. It was not scared to go into the dark and pull out the monsters. 

I grew up with this show, I remember watching the very first episode on TV and feeling so terrible because they changed so much and I loved those so much but I kept watching and the show was very easy to separate from the books and just enjoy this awesome series for what it is. #TeamStefan '

This blew me away! I watched it on a whim one night when I couldn't sleep because I had a cold and it really helped me forget all the pain I was in. I was shocked by the ending and loved it all at the same time!

I couldn't love a show more than I love Outlander. To think it took me a very tries to actually get into. The first time I watched it, I didn't get the hype, it was so slow! But these characters just suck you in and refuse to let you go. I would love to be a part of this amazing family. I've always wanted a big family that actually cares about each other. 

That's it for this week! Do you like any of these shows? If not, what's a TV adaptation that you enjoy? LEt me know below!
