Books to Read Based on Your Favourite TV Shows

02/03/2021

Almost one year into the pandemic and I find myself watching familiar TV shows with plots I know by heart, lines I've memorized and characters who are like my friends. Have you been returning to old favourites for comfort? If so, I've put together a list of books that are similar to these somewhat predictable yet ultimately, "feel-good" stories.

Did I miss your favourite? Let me know in the comments and I'll try to find you a book for you that will be equally reassuring.

  • The Good Place: The Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds
