Top 5 Tuesday – Books I Wish Had TV Adaptations

Happy Tuesday, Homo sapiens! Welcome to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday!

Top 5 Tuesday was originally hosted by Shanah at Bionic Bookworm and now found its home with Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

Books I Wish Had TV Adaptations

Hmmm… well, yeah, I guess there are some books which I think can be very good TV adaptations. It can give more details compared to movies so I think I’d prefer it more. Let’s get started, shall we?


I’ve read Pachinko in 2019 and it easily became one of my favorites that year. When I finished reading the book, I really wished someone will adapt it into a TV series. And just a few days ago, I found out that there is indeed an upcoming TV series for it starring Lee Min-Ho!


The Mountains Sing is a bittersweet family saga of the Tran family in North Vietnam. This book is filled  with heartbreak and tragedy. But it is also full of hope and love. I think this story will truly capture hearts even as a TV adaptation.


A Little Life is one of the longest novels I’ve read. I loved it and I really think it could be a great TV series.


I think The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is currently in the early stages of its TV adaptation so I’m really looking forward to it!


If I can remember correctly, I think Netflix signed a deal with an African producer for the TV adaptation of The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives. I’m truly excited for this one so I hope it comes out soon.

What books do you wish had TV adaptations? I would love to know! 🙂
