23 Books That Need to be Adapted Into TV Series ASAP
In the past decade, book-to-TV adaptations have expanded beyond PBS Masterpiece fare (although those are still great, too) to full-on must-see TV. Hits like Game of Thrones, The Handmaid's Tale, Big Little Lies, and 13 Reasons Why were all books first. Frankly, this is a trend we want to see continue, because our bookshelves are overflowing with stories that would be perfect for the small screen.
In fact, some of the books on this list have already been adapted into films, so clearly Hollywood is on the same page. However, this disparate group of novels all have one thing in common: they deserve way more than two hours to unfold. The characters in these books deserve to come to life over the course of multiple seasons, and maybe even become monster hits à la Game of Thrones.
From YA favorites to sprawling sci-fi series, the books on this list are all perfect for TV.
