Hear that? It’s the sound of a rough year mercifully winding down, and while we can’t exactly look forward to positive events IRL, thankfully, the land of make-believe is providing us with some much-needed respite in the form of movies and TV. Books, long the safe place for your brain, are also inspiring some of next year’s most exciting movies and TV shows. This year’s book-to-TV adaptations included Big Little Lies, 13 Reasons Why, and The Handmaid’s Tale, so 2018 has some big shoes to fill. Looking at this list, you’ll be pretty confident that these series are up to the task.
