Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
In the before time, more specifically 2004, you would only learn about upcoming books from Sunday review sections and little pamphlets in book stores. It was in one of these pamphlets that I heard about Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. This is a gorgeous British fantasy set in an England where magic had once existed but is now mostly dormant until a young man comes on the scene and changes the nature of English magic forever. I seriously felt dread when I heard this book was going to be adapted into a mini-series. Just recently however, I saw a scene from the show and it looks spectacular! If you haven't read this book give it a try.
It was so hard to pick from my many book loves a book that not only would transfer well to television/movies. Soulless fits both these categories. With the right actress and director this could be an amazing series. I'm looking forward to every one else's posts. Happy Saturday!
