Best book adaptations on Netflix 2023
It’s no secret that many of our favorite shows and movies have taken up space on our bookshelves before they appeared on our screens. Some of the best book adaptations on Netflix have been among the most popular releases in 2023.
Whether it’s a mystery thriller or a sweeping romance, these stories have us on the edge of our seats as much as they have us turning page after page. The Night Agent, Happiness for Beginners, and Heartstopper are among Netflix’s best page-to-screen adaptations, but let’s begin the list with the beloved drama series Firefly Lane.
Firefly Lane season 2
In April 2023, Firefly Lane came to an end with the second part of its second season. The final season culminated the winding road of the friendship between Kate and Tully. After meeting as teenagers and living across the street from each other, the pair become inseparable throughout the years, no matter what life throws their way. Well… most of the time.
The second part of season 2 picked up in the midst of a rift in Kate and Tully’s friendship and sisterhood, following Tully’s car accident with Kate’s daughter Marah in the passenger seat. But as Kate battles an aggressive form of breast cancer, the best friends repair their friendship, realizing that nothing’s more important than sticking together for Kate’s final days.
If you didn’t read the book before watching the series, make sure to read Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, as well as the follow-up novel Fly Away. Hannah’s books are as tear-jerking and emotional of a ride as the series on Netflix, and they’re a must-read for anyone missing one of television best friendships, Kate and Tully, the Firefly Lane girls.
