TOP TEN BOOK SERIES THAT SHOULD BE ADAPTED INTO NETFLIX SHOWS
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works:
Every Tuesday a topic is assigned and then you post a top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join in and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
This week’s TTT topic was submitted by Nushu @ Not A Prima Donna Girl, and it’s a fun one!
The Walsh Series by Kate Canterbary
Genre – Contemporary Romance
For fans of Pride & Prejudice and Bridget Jones.
This was one of the authors I discovered when I got an ereader and rediscovered my love of reading. She is still a favourite, and one of a handful of contemporary authors I still read.
The series features 4 brothers and 2 sisters struggling to find their HEA’s in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them. I loved every single book in the series and fully expect, if I ever visit Boston, to bump into at least one of the couples, they feel THAT real. The banter between the siblings is hilarious, the sex scenes are scorching hot and the feels, oh the feels these books give you…. just keep the tissues handy.
The 1000 Revolutions by Pippa DaCosta
Genre – Space Opera Science Fiction
For fans of Star Trek and I, Robot.
The series isn’t quite finished yet, though another (the final?) book is in the works.
Caleb Sheppard is the consummate off -the-rails, not-quite-honest-but-not-bad, heart-in-the-right-place ship’s captain. Fran, his sometimes second, is 100% untrustworthy and One, One will steal your heart. This is the book equivalent of Star Wars, where I want more and more of the characters. In the words of Depeche Mode “I just can’t get enough”.
Chicago Syndicate by Soraya Naomi
Genre – Mafa Romance
For those who wanted more romance and less graphic violence in The Godfather.
I’m showing my lack of series watching using streaming services! However who doesn’t love a mafia story? And even better is a mafia story with love! The balance of action, intrigue, smuttiness and *aww* moments is perfect.
Preyfinders by Cari Silverwood
Genre – SFR
Ideal for those who got turned on by seeing Princess Leia in slave chains.
I did consider suggestion the Machinery of Desire series by the same author, but on reflection I felt that this series, set in a very near future Earth, would have that element of realism. Plus it’s got hot aliens in it. Hot, alpha aliens who will do anything to keep their Earthwoman safe.
Both this and MoD would make great streamed series’ as the author has amazing world building skills and great creativity. And although it’s a trilogy there are a couple of spin off books too.
The Veil Series by Pippa DaCosta
Genre – Urban Fantasy
Suitable for me!!!! Possibly also fans of Lucifer (though I haven’t watched that yet) and anyone who loves a good demon.
Muse/Charlie is a half demon who has escaped, through the veil, to Earth, where she is hiding out. The series features an epic battle of good verses evil, though not everyone is who they first appear to be. And if you thought Lucifer was hot, just wait until you meet Akil, The Prince of Greed – I guarantee he will steal your heart!
There is also a 3 book spin off series for even more demon hotness.
The Sanctuary Series by Robert J Crane
Genre – Epic Fantasy
Game of Thrones meets The Hobbit, so suitable for all geeks and Dungeons and Dragons fans.
This is possibly Game of Thrones meets LoTR meets King Arthur. It contains adventures within adventures and the books are unputdownable. I would LOVE to see this made into a TV series.
Darkness Series by K.F. Breene
Genre – Urban Fantasy/ PNR
Suitable for Buffy and Twilight fans who have grown up and want a story with more substance.
Hot vampires, witches, shifters and other paranormal creatures abound in this series of the little guy battling the bad guys who are in charge. It’s a few years since I last read the series but I still remember how much I enjoyed it.
Cartwright Brothers by Lilliana Anderson
Genre – Contemporary Romance
Suitable for those who love seeing a roguish bad boy tamed.
Fool Me Twice had almost a rom-com feel to it, but by the final book, Fool’s Paradise, the feel was more serious and more poignant. In many ways this is a coming of age series, even though the guys are all adults. However until they meet the right girl, they’d never quite grown up. Well, apart from Toby and boy was there ever a guy more deserving of finding lasting happiness.
Men of the North by Elin Peer
Genre – Dystopian/SFR
Suitable for everyone!
The whole series is about overcoming differences, accepting others for who they are and finding common ground.
Elin Peer has created a world that offers so much opportunity for exploration and a truly enthralling series could be created, based on these books.
Den of Mercenaries/ The Kingmaker Saga by London Miller
Genre – Romantic Suspense/Organised Crime
Den of Mercenaries – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074C3HL2F
Kingmaker Saga – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MPBR7C1
Suitable for those who love an action packed, twisty and gripping story.
The two series’ are interlinked and feature the same characters and events but from different perspectives. Whilst in each DoM book there is a stand alone story, with a secondary story running throughout, the Kingmaker Saga focuses on one couple and the secondary story, that is theirs, throughout the series.
London Miller cleverly weaves lots of tiny little details together in such a way that you don’t spot the bigger picture, and where all those smaller parts fit, until the big reveal. These two would definitely make a very popular TV series.
