Yeah, not dying over here at all ? Scrolling through Instagram and saw a post about all the VA love from the previous day's TV announcement and I was all, "whoa, what the hell did I miss?!?!?!" Not gonna lie, I got way too emotional when I found the original announcement post ?

‘Bridgerton‘ Isn‘t Bad Austen — It‘s An Entirely Different Genre: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/bridgerton-netflix-romance-genre_n_60086fd5c5b6ff...

As a nearly lifelong romance reader, I've been so frustrated with the “hot take“ of comparing Netflix's Bridgerton to Jane Austen. This article from HuffPo really sums up my feelings beautifully!

#romance #criticism #adaptations #Bridgerton #booktoscreen

Gnora “Netflix makes historical shows that salve our anxieties with a past where, as he puts it, “nothing bad happens.” In a very real way, this is what the Regency romance genre is, part of its particular appeal: They‘re gorgeous, escapist stories that end happily ever after.“ 2y

Normal People | Sally Rooney

Pickpick

Normally I read the book first. I always believe that the book is better. However this novel I read after watching the new Hulu show and I loved doing it in this order. The book and show are so similar that it‘s almost word for word, yet the book adds in a few extra scenes and information the show was missing which I found fascinating.

Prairiegirl_reading I‘ve been putting off watching the show until get to this one. Now maybe necessary. 🤔 2y
FeatherV The show and the movie are almost word for word in a lot of spots, the book adds more commentary in some areas but I personally enjoyed reading the book more from having watched the show 2y

Going Postal | Terry Pratchett

I loved the book. Terry Pratchett never disappoints.

Now I‘m checking out the series. So far, it‘s pretty fun. #adaptations

Sace My husband and I watched that a few months ago. We haven't read any Terry Pratchett but we LOVED this series. ( I probably shouldn't admit that I have not read any Terry Pratchett.) 2y
wanderinglynn @Sace then I highly recommend the book. It‘s one of the standalones in the Discworld series. 2y

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness
post image

I've been recovering from surgery this week and have actually felt too tired mostly to even read. In between naps I've finally started watching A Discovery of Witches, which has been on my watch list for ages! I haven't read the books, although @Kimberlone has read the first. So far a bit dull, but Matthew Goode is enough to keep me watching till it picks up 😍 Should I read the series? #witches #adaptations #surgery #recovery

Lauren_reading I liked the first book, but then couldn‘t finish the second one. 3y
Saknicole @LaurenReads that's the same thing @kimberlone said. If I'm jonesing after season 1 I might try! 3y
Kimberlone I have the second and third books. You can have them if you want to try. I kind of think the books are like a mix between outlander and twilight 3y

LibrarianRyan I'm dying to see Artemis Fowl, but also apprehensive. they bundle two books together, and they have moved it 3 times, which is normally indicative of reshoots. 3y
GypsyKat @LibrarianRyan I‘ve still never read those books. 🙈 3y
LibrarianRyan @GypsyKat You should they are sooooo goooooooddddd. Quick reads. I have read all but the last two (i started a reread and didn't get vary far). Plus a new spin off series is coming. 3y
