Top Ten Tuesday: Suspense Novels That Should Be Adapted For Netflix

Posted August 18, 2020 by meezcarrie in Christian, mystery/suspense, Top Ten Tuesday / 32 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is Books/Series – I’m going the suspense route – that should be adapted for Netflix. Each of these books or series will keep you on the edge of your reading chair – or your comfy sofa were they available to binge on Netflix.

  1. I’ve read most of these and am adding those I haven’t to my TBR list. I’d watch any of them as long as the producers kept to the book instead of going off on their own tangents. And wouldn’t the If I Run series be amazing as a nail-biting, cliff-hanger-ending weekly series?! Oy!

    I just finished Lisa Carter’s Beneath a Navajo Moon and I think it would translate well to a screen production.

    • oh my goodness, YES (to the If I Run series) – people would be on pins and needles just like we were waiting months and months for the next book haha

    You nailed this, Carrie! These series are some of my most favorite and it would be this book lovers dream to see them come alive on the big or small screen.

    zero .. I don’t and have no intention of getting Netflix … lol

    But I see a lot of familiar titles!

  4. Oh, These are great suggestions! I have read many of them!
    Add to this list Susan May Warren’s books and Susan Sleeman’s books! Both authors have books that will keep you on the edge of your chair and needing to breathe!

  5. I don’t read a lot of suspense and haven’t read these ones, but I do think suspense novels/romances make some of the best movies/shows. I should probably get a jump on those shows you requested and try a few of these out!

    I would love to see Robin Patchen’s Nutfield Saga turned into a Netflix series. Twelve incredible suspense novels. If you haven’t read them I highly recommend them.

    Also, Nancy Mehl’s Kailey Quinn trilogy. Reminiscent of Criminal Minds. Excellent trilogy.
