Stuff on Sundays: Book to TV adaptions to binge watch

    I loved Big Little Lies! I started YOU but haven’t finished it, and A Discovery of Withces looks good too!

    actually thought the TV series of Big Little Lies was much better than the book(on the basis that the domestic violence issue was handled seriously – in the book, I elt that the tone was a little light…).

    M favourite adaptions in recent times: Love, Nina (on STAN) and Sweetbitter (also on STAN).

    The ‘Pride and Prejudice’ series starring Colin Firth, Visually delightful! Great music, too!

    A Discovery of Witches is on my April list of things I want to watch! I don’t actually watch a lot of TV, but I’ve been waiting for that series for several years now.

    My favorites are True Blood based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels, as well as Midnight Texas by the same author, even though it didn’t last long, it was really intriguing and strange.

    I really enjoyed The Shannara Chronicles and wish they did another season! I was really looking forward to seeing more of Eretria… I’m really want to watch A Discovery of Witches, too!

    I love watching Big Little Lies. But I was not very happy with the TV adaptation of The Shannara Chronicles. Good, I haven´t read the book and am for sure missing some details from there. Maybe I should read the book instead of watching the series *smile*

    Best wishes
