ENTER-TV-BIGLITTLELIES-MCT

For those who feel they've already watched everything while in quarantine, here are some book-to-screen adaptations to check out, including HBO's "Big Little Lies."

It’s getting to that point in quarantine where people are beginning to run out of shows and movies to watch.

If you feel like you’ve seen it all or are just sick of watching TV in general, now is the perfect time to pick up a book. If you’re not sure what to read, try starting off with a book that’s already been adapted into a film or television series. That way you can read the book and then experience the film and compare the two. You can even pick a show or movie you’ve already watched and experience it in a whole new way. The old saying “The book is always better than the movie,” is rarely wrong.

The list below is just a small list of possibilities. Search online and find the perfect book adaption for you. 

 You can’t forget the classic timeless series that have swept the entertainment industry and have become fan favorites.
