Instagram advertising got me good on this one. I was scrolling down my feed and a trailer for a new show on TNT caught my attention. I decided to watch the first episode to see if I enjoyed it and got hooked. Michelle Dockery is the lead actress and is SO good! It was renewed for a second season but I don’t know when the new season is supposed to start. I saw that it was based on a series of books written by Blake Crouch & got it on my Kindle just recently! Blake Crouch is also the author of Wayward Pines which I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t read yet.
Here is the Goodreads summary of Good Behavior:
Fresh out of prison and fighting to keep afloat, Letty Dobesh returns to her old tricks burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel. While on the job, she overhears a man hiring a hit man to kill his wife. Letty may not be winning any morality awards, but even she has limits. Unable to go to the police, Letty sets out to derail the job, putting herself on a collision course with the killer that entangles the two of them in a dangerous, seductive relationship.
Good Behavior comprises three interlinked novellas, The Pain of Others, Sunset Key, and Grab, which together form a novel-length portrait of Blake Crouch’s all-time favorite character creation, Letty Dobesh.
I love seeing how books are altered to become TV shows or Movies. Trueblood is always one of my favorite examples. They stuck to the story a little bit in the first season and then just created their own world and added so much more depth to the characters. I usually try to read the books first and then watch the show/movie but this time I’m going backward.
It turns out, this particular Kindle version of the book is called “Kindle in Motion” which means it includes notes from the author and little GIFs from the TV show as they relate to the particular story. It was a pretty neat touch.
I have quite a list of books I’d like to read that now have movies or TV shows. Check out other Book-to-movie/tv-shows on my Goodreads account.
Do you guys like watching a movie or TV show after reading the books? Which book-to-movie is your favorite?
