    I know a lot of people are obsessing with Game of Thrones but what's your favourite book series that's been made into a tv show or film?
    Or is there one you think will be coming out soon or want to be coming out soon?

    It's got to be either Dexter or Sherlock Holmes (the BBC tv series is what I have in mind although the films are good too)

    Harry Potter especially the later films, and the hunger games.

    The Vampire Diaries! The book wasn't exactly great, but the TV series was phenomenal!

    For my fave movie-book conversion, it would definitely be Harry Potter!

    It has to be Lord of the Rings.

    More recently I really enjoyed the tv special of Kate Mosse's Labyrinth.

    Harry Potter. And it's British (ish) produced too. I think that's a major achievement.

    I find Dexter (the show) to be far superior to the books, which I think is quite rare. I read the first 2 and got bored. The show is phenomenal though! I am glad they took the decision to break away from the novels.

    My favourite is definitely LotR. I am a Tolkien fanatic!

    the northen lights series (turned into the golden compass in the film)

    the film did not reflect the books at all, found it to be a big disapointment, also the golden compass is not a good title by comparission to the northen lights.

    Friday Night Lights is an outstanding TV series based on a non-fiction book of the same name by Buzz Bissinger. There's also a film but I haven't seen it!

    The Southern Vampire Mysteries, also known as True Blood. I think HBO did a fantastic job with the series.
    The Hunger Games - massive fan of the books, wasn't too impressed with all the changes made to the film, but the acting was superb :-)

    Elementary... Johnny Lee Miller makes a pretty good Holmes. And they stick quite close to all the little details in the book...
