5 TV Series Based on Books That You Should Binge-Watch Soon
Remember when we can hardly move on after watching these TV series based on books (and comics!), Riverdale, 13 Reasons Why, and The Handmaid's Tale. Well, bookworms and TV series-lovers, there are actually more book-based TV series you should binge-watch this year and we've listed five of them below.
- A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
We know you miss the Baudelaire orphans so baaad, especially after watching the movie version over and over again. But finally, the TV gods have heard our cries. You can watch Netflix's 8-episode series, which follows the story of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after the death of their parents. The first season includes the stories from the first four books: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window, and The Miserable Mill.
- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
You will see L.M. Montgomery's classic book come to life in Netflix's Anne. This follows the journey of orphan Anne Shirley who's mistakenly sent to a family in Green Gables even if they originally wanted a boy. Anne tries to win them over, to fit in to her new life in the country and of course, ends up finding a home in their lives in the end.
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Love mystery TV shows? Then you'll love Starz's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's famous 2001 novel about Shadow. After spending time in prison, he gets released and finds out that his wife and best friend are dead. While trying to come to terms with their deaths, he meets Wednesday, the god Odin, who offers him a job to do.
- Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
HBO adapted Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn's 2006 book into an 8-episode series, which stars Amy Adams. In Sharp Objects, Amy plays Preake, a reporter who returns to her hometown and attempts to solve the murder case of two teen girls. Sharp Objects' production already wrapped up last March, so we're expecting this to air later this year.
- Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso
If you're a fan of Nasty Gal founder, CEO, and creative director Sophia Amoruso's biography, you'll surely enjoy watching the series, starring Britt Robertson, that's loosely based on events from her life. You'll get a glimpse of Sophia Marlowe's beginnings as a 20-year-old who doesn't know what to do with her life...until she gets one brilliant idea.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
