Books That Inspired Current TV Shows
Some of our best loved books (The Book Thief, The Fault in our Stars, etc.) have recently been adapted for the movies but do you know that many of the popular television series/mini-series on today are also based on books?
A few of our favorites include Call the Midwife (Season 3 airing now), Orange is the New Black (Season 2 airing now), House of Cards (Season 3 coming 2015) and Washington's Spies (Season 1 airing now). Shows to look forward to later this year include Outlander (Airs 8/9), The Strain (Airs this Summer), Olive Kitteridge (mini-series airs this Fall), The Leftovers (Season 1 airs 6/29) and Death Comes to Pemberley (mini-series airs this Fall).
Check out some of these popular and highly anticipated shows to see if you are happy with the book to TV transition.
