Top Ten Tuesday: Book to Screen


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's theme is Movies/TV Shows That Would Have Made Amazing Books (Submitted by Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad) but I am going to do the most recent examples of where I have seen a movie or TV series based on a book or read a book associated with a series, or a couple of can't wait for the TV series.

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas - I have recently watched two French movies based on the books. They were really good adaptations

One Day by David Nicholls - I started watching this series a few weeks ago. I need to get back to it.

Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn - I am looking forward to season 3 coming out soon very soon

Masters of the Air by Donald Miller - We just finished watching this series last week.

Lessons in Chemistry - I read the book late last year and then watched the TV series

No 1 Ladies Detective Agency - I am very close to finishing my current audio book which is book no. 10000 in the series of the same name. I watched the TV adaptation many years ago and very much enjoyed it!

All the Light You Cannot See by Anthony Doerr- We watched this TV series recently.

A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - I have read another of Amor Towles books, but not this one yet, but I will be watching this!

Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa - The movie is just called Sweet Bean 

Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams - This is a bit of a curve ball because whilst I did watch this it was a play rather than on a screen!


  1. I'm eagerly looking forward to watching Gentleman in Moscow and Lessons in Chemistry.

  2. This was a fun twist.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.


  3. I like how you share some adaptations you've seen recently! I have Lessons in Chemistry and The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency on my TBR.
    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  4. One Day as a show confuses me. There was already a movie and I don't know how it would come across as a show unless you changed the ending.

  5. Good list. In spite of not liking some of the changes I did, overall really enjoy The No 1 Ladies tv series. I love the books on audio. Nothing ever really happens, but I love that!

  6. I watched All the Light You Cannot See, but I liked the book a lot more than the show.

  7. I used to love the Three Musketeers movie with Michael York, Oliver Reed, Raquel Welch, Faye Dunaway, et al--and then I watched the TV series a few years ago and fell in love with that version.

    I didn't realize Masters of the Air was a book, but the series is on my must-watch list.

    I loved the Lessons in Chemistry book but had some issues with the changes made for the series.

    The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series was so good and so true to the books--major disappointment that it ended so soon (I think the director or producer passed away unexpectedly).

    Loved All the Light We Cannot See book so much I read it twice but haven't had the nerve to watch the series. Also loved Gentleman in Moscow--didn't know a series will be coming.

    Fabulous list that resonated with me!

  8. I did not know A Gentleman in Moscow was made into a show. Will has to check it out.

  9. I hope you enjoyed All the Light we Cannot See. I would like to watch this one in the future! Wonderful list.
