The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Question:

What book series would you like to see adapted as a Netflix series?

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer


Answer:

That is both an easy and a hard question. Easy because any book I have loved, I would enjoy seeing made into a series. Hard because I would only want it done if it is done well. I currently enjoy a few that are not on Netflix – A Discovery of Witches on AMC+, His Dark Materials and Game of Thrones on HBO, and Jack Reacher on Amazon Prime. I, also, liked Witcher which I believe was on Netflix, though I never read those books.

What hasn’t been made that I would like to see made?

The first book/series that comes to mind is one I just discovered – Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz. What an amazing action/adventure show that would be, though I feel like it’s cheating picking this one because I think the author mentioned that it actually is being made into a Netflix series during a virtual release day event that I popped into. I can’t wait to see it, but I imagine those things take time to finalize and get into production.

The book(s) I would like to see that I haven’t heard anything about this already being in progress is The Gilded Wolves trilogy/series by Roshani Chokshi. The only thing I worry about is that it would not be done to my satisfaction. It really needs the right actors, the right special effects and a high production quality. I have seen others adaptations done very well though, so I’m sure they could do the book(s) justice.

What book would you like to see turned into a Netflix series?

  1. Oh… I don’t have any of those. In fact I need rec for those series from books. I hardly watch TV so no idea. I have a prime and Netflix subscription. Don’t ask me why… If I don’t watch them

    1. I have subscriptions like that too. I imagine we all do. You read so much, I’m not surprised that you don’t watch tv 😊

  2. If I were to further promote NY authors (like they need the help), I’d like to see J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood on Netflix. If I’d we’re talking indie authors, I can think of a few who would do well on Netflix. Mae Clair wrote a great trilogy about the Mothman that she calls her Point Pleasant series. (She has another series called Hode’s Hill that would also be pretty cool to see; it’s a dual timeline and is pretty creepy.) Chris Niles has an ongoing adventure/mystery series set in Shark Key that would look beautiful and at times is high octane. And D. Wallace Peach has a great fantasy series I’m just starting that I already know is amazing called Unraveling the Veil.

    1. Mae’s and Diana’s stories would be wonderful on Netflix. I could definitely see the Hode’s Hill playing out on screen and the vibrant world of Diana’s new series would make a stunning adaptation. I loved both of those series ❤️

  3. Hello Tessa. I’d like to see a series of the book “Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro. There was a movie about 10 years ago which I didn’t see, but there is so much to this book I think it would be better served by a series.

    1. Another great choice! I didn’t catch the movie either but I could see where it would be a good series. The book description alone is super compelling.

  4. Oooh – The Gilded Wolves would be an excellent choice, but I agree it would have to be done right. Have you seen the cover for the third book? Exquisite.

  5. There are quite a few books I would love to see turned into a TV series but I would be so disappointed if they weren’t done well. Your comment about actors, special effects etc is so true.

  6. I would watch an Orphan X series for sure. There is so much to the series. I would love to see Dear Emmie Blue as a mini-series.
