What makes the best book-to-film adaptations? They not only elevate the prose, but also while transposing it into a different medium keep the heart of the source material. So, whether you like immersing yourself in captivating stories through books, TV or both, we got you covered.

Here are some fan favourite books that recently got their own series or films that you can now watch online:

Daisy Jones and the Six

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a musical romance-drama that got adapted into a mini-series. The novel is based on your favorite 70s bands such as Fleetwood Mac. Reid’s writing perfectly encapsulates the highs and lows of being a rock star — almost like you are intruding on the gossip and drama behind the scenes. Much like the books, the series portrays the 70s in a way that will transport you back in time. Once you finish the Daisy Jones mini-series and book, you can move on to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Reid if you have not already. The novel is super popular on #BookTok and is getting adapted into its very own film.
