The younger generation here (in our book club) noted us, that they usually read books that receive TV Shows on Netflix. Why not to collect some of the biggest upcoming shows connected with their book of origin. 

In the following list we collected some of the books in different genres that will receive a sequel or brand new series on Netflix in 2020. 

The Stranger by Harlan Coben

An 8 part psychological thriller with Richard Armitage.

Netflix release date: January 30.

Elle Fanning will act the main character of the book, where two teens wish to escape from small-town Indiana.

Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan

The book was published in 2003.

Altered Carbon season two is a long awaited sequel of one of the best sci-fi series of the 2010s. In the new season we will meet with the actor Anthony Mackie (Falcon in the movie Captain America) in the dystopian world of the future.

While the mini-series and the novel's plot isn't matching perfectly we think it is well worth the time to enjoy both of them. We find a lot of differences, which makes the whole story more diverse. 

Netflix release date of the second season: February 27.

The Duke and I by Julia Quinn

We hope this interesting list will help to find new books that are considered a good story according to Netflix and many readers.
