It is World Book Day and while we drench ourselves in the fragrance of paper, here's a list for those who love to watch the adaptations of their favourite books on screen. It is a well-known fact that many movies and web-show writers have taken inspiration from renowned books to write a script that will entertain the masses. From Game Of Thrones, Sacred Games, The Witcher, and many more, there are quite a few web-shows that have been inspired by books.
Well, as it is the season of binge-watching all the shows that OTT platforms like Amazon Prime, Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix and many more have to offer thanks to the outbreak of Coronavirus, we have curated a list of shows that are inspired by books. So grab on your bowl of popcorn and get ready to binge-watch on these shows. Or just slip into the pajamas and start reading the book if you have watched the shows already!
Starting with Games of Thrones, this epic drama available on Disney+ Hotstar is the adaptation of George RR Martin's book series titled 'A song of ice and fire'. While the show has come to an end, the last part of the book series is yet to come.
