Continuing the “media empire” idea a bit, two complementary posts:
I thought it was kind of fun how I happened to encounter these two posts right after each other.
Chachic lists ten books / series, of which I have read and loved eight, have one on my TBR pile, and (ahem) wrote one. Of these, the one I’d most like to see made into a TV series (besides mine, obviously) is … hard to choose. Maybe Andrea Host’s Touchstone trilogy? I don’t know! Maybe MWT’s series starting with The Thief? Really very difficult to pick just one off this list.
I haven’t seen many of the shows Maureen picks, but “North and South” was spectacularly good. Also, I’m having trouble imagining anybody boiling Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell down into a few hours in any form. Huh. That’s certainly an ambitious thing to attempt.
