This Tuesday was a freebie and I got to catch up on some TV binge-watching while Winter Storm Jonas let off some rage over my town which led me to my grand idea…

Top Ten Book to TV Adaptations I’m excited about in 2016!

Cue band music, applause, and awards. Thank you! Thank you! Muah! Muah!

Yeah yeah, I’ll get on with it…

Jessica Jones

Ok so this one isn’t from 2016, but it’s so freaking GOOD!

Warning! This not your average Pepper Potts saves Tony Stark from his own inner demons Marvel production! This is deliciously, beautifully, and wonderfully dark as befits it’s heroine and storyline.

You can find Jessica Jones on Netflix. All episodes of the 1st season were released Nov. 20, 2015

Adapted from: Alias, Vol. 1 by Brian Michael Bendis (author) and Michael Gaydos

Goodreads: “Meet Jessica Jones. Once upon a time, she was a costumed superhero, but not a very good one. Now a chain-smoking, self-destructive alcoholic with a mean inferiority complex, Jones is the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations – a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases.”

The Magicians

I have been waiting in ecstatic anticipation for this one since they announced it and released a teaser trailer over a year ago.

The book series was sold to me as what if the wizards of Harry Potter were adults, making adult choices…and it delivers. I can’t wait to see what Syfy does with this. This is another one that can go down a very dark path…hopefully they don’t shy away from that.

Premieres on Syfy on Jan. 25.

Adapted from: The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Goodreads: “Like everyone else, precocious high school senior Quentin Coldwater assumes that magic isn’t real, until he finds himself admitted to a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college-friendship, love, sex, and booze- and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery. But magic doesn’t bring the happiness and adventure Quentin thought it would. After graduation, he and his friends stumble upon a secret that sets them on a remarkable journey that may just fulfill Quentin’s yearning. But their journey turns out to be darker and more dangerous than they’d imagined. Psychologically piercing and dazzlingly inventive, The Magicians, the prequel to the New York Times bestselling book The Magician King and the #1 bestseller The Magician’s Land, is an enthralling coming-of-age tale about magic practiced in the real world-where good and evil aren’t black and white, and power comes at a terrible price.”
