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

LaurenReads I liked the first book, but then couldn‘t finish the second one. 6mo
Saknicole @LaurenReads that's the same thing @kimberlone said. If I'm jonesing after season 1 I might try! 6mo
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 6mo

I‘m going to have to move a couple of these up on my TBR list. 📖🎬🍿 #Adaptations


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. 7mo
GypsyKat @LibrarianRyan I‘ve still never read those books. 🙈 7mo
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. 7mo
BooknerdsLife The Goldfinch (still need to read it) & Rivers of London (which I love) 7mo
BooknerdsLife @LibrarianRyan Same! I have yet to read the books but my daughter did and totally loved the books🤗 7mo

Cute adaptation, and I especially liked the addition of the LGBTQ storyline. However, I don‘t know if it was the format, or if they were aiming for a younger audience than the original, but it felt a little rushed and like there was less character growth. The email/journal entry device was interesting, but I think I would have preferred more of the comic panels. 3/5 #marchreads #graphicnovels #adaptations

I loved this book. I love listening to actor commentaries on movies and reading all the trivia on IMDb, and this was a magical combination of both, where no one‘s commentary was cut off, there was no dead air, and the trivia had been copy edited. Can not recommend this enough to other fans of the movie. 5/5 #mayreads #popculture #adaptations

Puzzling while watching Lucifer, an adaptation from the character Lucifer Morningstar in The Sandman. Loved The Sandman. So far, I‘m really enjoying Lucifer.

CarolynM Lucifer is a hoot, I love it. Tom Ellis is great. I don't even have those "ooh but he's lovely Gary from Miranda" moments I used to have in Rush.? 2y
wanderinglynn @CarolynM Agree. Tom Ellis is perfect for the role. 👍🏻 2y
