It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way
As I was checking what books I need to read for the Popsugar Challenge, #17 caught my eye. This was “Becoming a TV series or movie in ‘22”. As I scrolled through a long list online, I found many that I have the books for the coming movie or series. Usually, I prefer to read the book before I see the movie.
Here are 5 books on TBR shelves which are becoming a movie or series this year:
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Wonder by Emma Donoghue
The Storied Life of AJ Fikiry by Gabrielle Zevin
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Kindred by Octavia Butler
Which one would you read for this challenge?
I have read a couple of these. I’d probably want to watch Persuasion and have read it but don’t recommend it over any of these. I am sure they are all good.
Thanks Kathryn. I’m leaning toward the Fikiry book.
I read AJ Fikry and the Time Travelers Wife. I’m interested to see how Time Travelers Wife turns out on the screen because there are two different camps for this one: one being- it’s a romance, the other- due to age difference, it isn’t or shouldn’t be. I hope you get to read this book before it airs!
Thanks Mia. I hope so too.
I have had AJ Fikry to read for a long time and have always read positive things. I would read that one first. I remember a movie based on the Time Traveler’s Wife made back in 2009, so I guess they are making another. I liked that movie, so didn’t read the book.
Fikiry is the one I will probably read first – I’ve had it a long time as well. Never did see the Time Traveller’s Wife movie.
