  1. I love true crime shows like New Detectives. Besides all the true crime novels, I think the In Death series by J.D. Robb would be a great recommendation.

    My most favoritest show ever though is Angel and I don’t quite have anything to recommend based on it though. Angel is just SO good, it’s hard to compare, you know?

  2. I don’t watch a whole lot of TV, except for certain shows like Orange is the New Black and the Marvel shows (so excited that you included some books for those who enjoy Jessica Jones!). I read the book that inspired the Orange is the New Black show, and I have to say that it was pretty good! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

          Yes, I’m a fan! It’s from the same people that made Legend of Korra so HUZZAH! And my fav character so far is Lance. XD But I also like Pidge and Hunk. I kiiind of ship Lance and Keith. XD

          • Ahhh you’ve seen Korra!!! I can’t seem to find anyone who’s seen Korra… Have you heard of the upcoming Korra comics??? Keith is my favorite hands down, though Pidge and Lance are close runner ups. I am a huge Klance shipper haha…

          • Bee

            YES! I loved Korra! Season 2 was a bit meh, but I LOOOOVED seasons 3 and 4. 😀 Korrasami <3 And I have heard of them! If they're as good as the Avatar: the Last Airbender comics, they'll be fantastic.

            And yesss, haha! Klance. <3

        • Bee

          YES I HAVE. IT’S ONLY MY FAVORITE SHOW EVER. My favorite is either Zuko or Sokka. And I firmly ship Zutara. I WILL GO DOWN WITH THAT SHIP. And I love LOK, but ATLA is still the bestest. And no problem haha. Feel free to spam my twitter at any time.

          • Zuko is my precious darling! And yeah ATLA is better than LOK (but that movie *sobs*). Haha I always had a soft spot for General Iroh 2.0 in LOK, though it was kinda weird that young Zuko and Iroh 2.0 shared the same voice actor, it was kinda disconcerting….

            As for shipping, I don’t really have a side, as I watched the show long after the initial run, and knew that Zutara wouldn’t go canon, so I didn’t want to dig myself into a hole of my own making (did that make any sense?).

  3. Ooh, I didn’t realise this author was an actor.😂 I should have! I kind of thought the name was familiar but now I think I’m thinking of the author of Artemis Fowl haha. Anyway, I love your show-to-book recs! I need to actually see more of the shows, though.😂
