We watch a LOT of TV in my house. Anything from Duck Dynasty or Game of Thrones. We aren’t biased. But over the years we have discovered that they majority of our favorite TV progaming comes in the form of book adaptations. Unlike movie adaptations (which try to stick as closely to the book as possible) television adaptions tend to maintain the bare bones of the story while branch out in new and exciting ways. Allowing you to see your favorite characters in new circumstances and sometimes in an entirely different light. Anyways…here are 3 brand spanking new shows slated to start this fall that are now gracing my DVR list. Maybe YOU should think about combining your TBR and your DVR too!
About The Book:
Brother turns on brother. The throne of England is at stake. The deadly Wars of the Roses have begun. . . .
They ruled England before the Tudors, and now internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings the Plantagenets to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women.
Elizabeth Woodville, a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition, secretly marries the newly crowned boy king of England. While she rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become the central figures in a famous unsolved mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the lost princes in the Tower of London. Philippa Gregory brings the artistry and intellect of a master writer and storyteller to a new era in history and begins what is sure to be another bestselling classic series.
In a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane, an extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, competes with Abraham Van Brunt for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel. As Crane leaves a party he attended at the Van Tassel home on an autumn night, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman. The Headless Horseman, is said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball, and “rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head,” though the story implies that the Horseman was really Brom in disguise.
An uproarious and unique whimsical children story of Alice’s confrontation with the world that is eccentric. The events that take place through Alice’s visit in a bizarre “Wonderland” are spontaneous and fantastically unplanned. The characters are remarkably amusing and entertaining. Its language is highly figurative that takes the reader in the realm of true imagination. Enchanting!
Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
