Books to read before watching their show and film version in 2022!

Good Evening or Good Morning depending on where you are in the world, I have more book related news to share with you. I know the past two newsletters touched on a very heavy subject. This time it will take a lighter tone. This is a list of books to read before watching their film and tv version. My source is from Although the article covers 34 books, I will only cover what I haven’t reported on in the past.

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

I have not read this book by Anthony Horowitz but it sounds like something up my alley because it’s a murder mystery. Susan Reyland an editor is given an unfinished manuscript which will change her life. Though she finds herself in the middle of a real life mystery one only she can solve. Magpie Murders will be a t.v. show/mini-series and it will air on PBS. When it will air is yet to be determined. I will write an update when I know for sure. Who is casted in the show is Lesley Manville (who is also playing Princess Margaret on The Crown during her final years as well as being in the film Let Him Go), Conleth Hill, and Timothy McMullan. I know this is definitely something I want to check out.
