There are never too many good adaptations of books. And although many of them have been created over the years, only a few of them have resonated with viewers. However, after the advent of BookTok, the popularity of books has increased significantly. From hate game to Red, white and royal blue, all of these books hit the top BookTok charts even before they were recognized by the producers. And with People we meet on vacation adapt soon, it would be nice to take a look at BookTok and wonder what is so special about these charts.
While adaptations go beyond films like Ordinary people (mini-series) heart block(Netflix original) and Summer when I became beautiful (Hulu Original), the movies give those 300 pages less than three hours to wrap up the story, making them both intriguing and worth the wait.
