TV Shows or Movies adapted from Books

So I’m sure I’m not the only one who reads books but also watched TV shows and movies. But I do find that when I discover they are based on a book I have to wonder if the book is better than the film version.

Since I’m sure I’m not the only one like this I thought I would start a discussion about this. Because this is intended as a DISCUSSION post I’d like you to share your thoughts in comments below. If you don’t, then it won’t really work will it?

To kick off the discussion I thought I’d start off with a bit of a list of some of the film versions of books I’ve seen that I either have read or want to read. In coming weeks (I haven’t decided on how often I will add a new discussion posts) I will be exploring individual ones in more detail to explain WHY I want to read the books.

I read these ones after seeing them (even if it was only the first episode/movie)

  • Game of Thrones
  • Harry Potter
  • Trueblood
  • Hunger Games
  • The 100
  • Divergent
  • Water for Elephants

I want to read these ones

  • Outlander (currently working on this series SLOWLY)
  • Altered Carbon
  • Vampire Diaries
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • Gone with the Wind
  • The Time Traveller’s Wife
  • Me before You
  • Veronica Mars *added late May*

I saw these after reading them

  • Vampire Academy
  • Eragon
  • The Hobbit

I am going to make a note that if I think of other books to add to any part of this post I will be doing so. You never know, you might even be the ones to remind me of others!
