The Vampire Diaries. Gossip Girl. Game of Thrones. Heck, even 8 Simple Rules was based on a book. So now I ask you:
What book do you want to see turned into a TV show?
My choice would have been The Secret Circle, a book series written by The Vampire Diaries’ LJ Smith about witches. Of course, I guess I can’t claim that one now that the CW is already working on it.
But what else? It doesn’t have to be a series. In fact, one of my favorite series, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I would hate to see on TV. Why? Well, I think it would destroy the characters that I’ve learned to love through the four books. Heck, the movies were pretty borderline in hurting what were well-written books. I wouldn’t want to see that messed up.
But what if someone did a TV show of something like Jane Eyre? Whether it’s a period piece, I’m not sure, but I could entirely see her go through various things–maybe including a few of the book’s milestones–and flashing back from time to time to her childhood, which (if I recall) they cover at the beginning of the book. It could be interesting.
But what about you? What book (or books) would you want to see on TV?
