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.
What book series would you like to see adapted as a Netflix series?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
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.
