Some of the hottest spring and summer shows this year are based on books. Scroll through and to find some inspiration for your beach reading.
"13 Reason Why"
This buzzy Netflix teen drama is based on Jay Asher's novel of the same name, which came out in 2007. The show drew out the story and added backstory to more characters, but otherwise stayed pretty true to the book.
"A Series of Unfortunate Events"
Millennial nostalgia strikes again. Netflix brings Lemony Snicket's stories of the Baudelaire children to life starring Patrick Warburton and Neil Patrick Harris.
The Starz show is an adaptation of the 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman starring Ricky Whittle and Emily Browning.
"The Handmaid's Tale"
Hulu's original series starring Elizabeth Moss is based off Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian novel about a future in which women's rights are taken away.
"Big Little Lies"
HBO's adaptation of Liane Moriarty's novel of the same name stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley.
"Orange Is the New Black"
"OITNB" Season 5 premieres June 9, and the series is based off of Piper Kerman's memoir that tells the story of her time in prison. The show has expanded far past the book by now.
"Game of Thrones"
Winter is finally here in the show, but the sixth book still isn't. HBO's epic show is based on a series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin. Five of the seven anticipated books have been published. The premiere of Season 7 is July 16.
