Thursday Movie Picks - TV Edition: Companion Reads
It's another companion reads edition over at Wandering Through The Shelves! This was a bit tough for me when we did this for movies, and even more so now that I'm limited to TV series. Here's what I came up with.
1) Watch True Blood - Read The Cutting Season: This comparison is more about the setting than anything. True Blood took place in Louisiana, as does The Cutting Season. While you'll find no vampires in TCS, you will find a murder mystery and True Blood has never been short on those.
2) Watch The Handmaid's Tale - Read The Testaments: Okay, this might seem like an obvious pick, but if you found yourself getting somewhat annoyed with the TV show, reading The Testaments again will get you right back in it. I've mentioned before that I think The Handmaid's Tale as a show is far better than Margarat Atwood's book because it actually answers questions. She's nowhere near as vague in The Testaments.
3) Watch Sharp Objects - Read The Sundown Motel: I love a good murder mystery and Sharp Objects was an excellent mini series. The Sundown Motel is also one of the best murder mysteries I've read in a while, so it makes sense to pair them.
