Read Then Watch – Books Turned to Television

Stuck in? While there are many things you can do with your time, here is one of my favorites! Read a book and then watch the television adaptation- you can read and watch at your own pace or you can easily fill a day or two or three with this activity. 

On Netflix

Read then watch how agents attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. People who are fond of criminal and detective shows/books this one is right up your alley!

On Netflix

This one is probably the most known adaptation on Netflix, with a whopping 7 seasons! Follow Piper Kerman on her prison adventure along with several other inmates. They do their best to retain some shred of humanity and identity in a system built to take it away. 

On Netflix

We can all recognize that this mystery-solving show will be about the best detective that ever lived. This show will add a modern and spicy twist to the original by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. 

On Netflix

 You might have seen this show as it took to social media by storm. This twisted series is definitely binge watch worthy, if you are into psychological thrillers. 

On Hulu

Dive into a world that could have been. Where you are divided to provide based on social standing and health and the only hope is to bare children. 

These are simply some of my favorites but believe me there’s more! Reading and then watching the show is a great way to expand your mind and creativity! Develop your own world while reading and then see how others interpreted it on the screen. 

Happy Reading!

Book Inspired Vacations

Wherever you are in the world make sure you take the necessary time for yourself! Here on the east coast it is getting warmer each day, which means everyone will be planning their summer vacations! In order to stay on theme for this blog, we have come up with several must do vacations for all you book lovers out there, check them out!

Romeo and Juliet in Verona

Take a trip to Italy and explore what is arguably Shakespeare’s most famous work. Verona still has historic places that were standing during the story of the doomed lovers in the 16th century. Juliet’s balcony is the epitome of the locations and Verona remains a tourist destination for this reason.

Sherlock Holmes’ in London

Sherlock Holmes, along with his sidekick Watson, spent many stories in the streets of Victorian London looking for clues and suspects. Take a trip to England and walk through some of the same cobblestone streets and narrow lanes of Homes’ era. 221B Baker Street is now a museum, and you can also take a Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour to learn some more on the spot facts.

Lord of the Rings in New Zealand

Take a trip to where most of The Lord of the Rings was filmed. At more than 150 locations across New Zealand, there are many tour options to fit your needs. This dreamy destination could inspire anyone!

Outlander in Scotland

Get transported to your favorite Outlander location in Scotland on an Outlander tour! Walk in the footsteps of Jamie and Claire into Castle Leoch and on the cobbled streets of Cranesmuir. And let’s not forget about the standing stones!

Next time you’re planning your vacation maybe you can take your favorite book with you!

Reread Your Favorite Books!

Some people could not fathom picking up the same book twice, but I have a few reasons why you should!

They give us comfort. 

Reread one of your favorite books to feel the same emotions you felt the first time. There is a reason why it’s your favorite, it felt good to read. 

The movie adaptation is coming out. 

I do this over and over again. I read the book but it is turning into a movie, so I need to brush up on the book to make sure they stick to the roots!

You’re older. 

You read the book as a kid, or for required reading and you want to give it another go. 

You missed it the first time.

You read a book thinking it would open your mind to something new but you didn’t quite get there…but you should read it again to explore new possibilities.

Family/Personal traditions. 

Maybe you have or want to start a tradition where you read the same book every year or so to reflect a special time in your life. 

You know all the facts.

It is great to reread a murder mystery when you already know who did it! Find out all those clues from a different perspective. 

Why do you reread your favorite books? Let us know your must reads!

The More the Merrier – Reading Multiple Books at Once

There is no right way to read. While some have to focus on one book at a time, others can be reading two or three books at a time, and even throw in an audiobook or two.. 

But believe it or not, there are actually benefits to reading multiple books at once. Here are a few:

  1. Helps you get through your TBR pile faster.

Do you have a long list of books that you want to finish by the end of the year? Well pick up two at the same time and boom! You will be finished before you know it. 

  1. You can balance your pleasure reading with your required reading. 

If you are still in school or you have to read a lot for your job, reading a second book will still give you that pleasure in reading. You can pick your own must reads while also reading your have to’s. 

  1. Balance emotional reads with lighthearted books. 

Have you been afraid to pick up a tear jerker because you know how it will affect your emotions? Try balancing it out with a fun quirky read so that way it won’t put a damper on your mood. 

  1. It allows you to enjoy books in many mediums. 

Reading multiple books at once is not only fun, but it’s easy with all the different forms! Listen to an audiobook on your commute, take an ebook with you in the car or to an activity, and enjoy a physical book at home. The possibilities are endless!

  1. It allows you to take advantage of all the benefits of reading. 

Life can have you down sometimes with work, bills to pay, and simply the everyday go to’s of life. Having a book that you can pick up to make you laugh when you’re sad, or take you to another world when you feel like having an adventure is a great way to get away for a little while. Read it all! 

Happy Reading!

A father charged with treason. A daughter sent to kill him. A shocking conspiracy that changes all the rules of the spy game for a new generation . . .

With more than a dozen kills under her belt, ex-Marine Mara Roberts is one of the Agency’s most reliable assassins. But her latest target—a convicted traitor about to be released from prison—is different than her other marks. He’s a former agent who betrayed his country. He’s responsible for the death of Mara’s mother. And he happens to be Mara’s father . . . 

Scott Roberts knows that his daughter was sent to kill him. He realizes he has only one chance to change her mind, to convince her that he’s been framed for treason—and that every member of their family are pawns to be sacrificed, one by one. Mara isn’t sure she can trust her father. He is a master of manipulation, as ruthless as he is resourceful. But when her nephew is abducted, she agrees to follow Scott’s lead and expose the global elites who are pulling the strings. But first, they must infiltrate the highest levels of power. Then, they must attempt the unthinkable: Kidnap the President of the United States . . .
