There is another way to feed your TV passion: picking up a book. This year, many highly-anticipated shows are based on books you can read right now. Right now! Sometimes, the old saying is true: The book really is better than the show. You won’t be able to know that for sure unless you read it.
There’s a little something for everyone on this list, from domestic dramas to heartbreaking romances to spooky graphic novels. Which book you pick up may depend on your mood — or, you may be bored enough to want to tackle the entire list. Either way, grab a cosy blanket, get reading, and then add the corresponding shows to your streaming queue.
