Do you read tie-in novels to movies or television series? If so, which ones?
Yes! One of my favorite things is finding out that there are books or comics that are tie-ins with tv shows or movies! Though to be totally honest, I do struggle with figuring out if the book came before the show/movie.
Though right off the top of my head, I immediately thought of Schooled in Revenge by Jesse Lasky, which is a novel written in the Revenge TV show world. I LOVED this book. Of course I will never know if I liked it so much because I had watched the show…or if I would have liked it without watching the show.
Schooled In Revenge was a quick read for me and I found it extremely enjoyable. I had a very hard time putting it down, so I read it in just a few sittings. I thought that the author captured the tone and action of the TV show wonderfully!
To those that pick this up expecting it to be just like the show: the story is NOT about the main characters of the TV show. Emily Thorne does make a few appearances, but this story follows five new individuals as they train with Takeda to get revenge on those that wronged them.
When I read the very last page, I immediately wanted a book 2! I hope the author is working on one!! I highly recommend this to anyone that has read the show, or anyone that likes stories about revenge.
My favorite excerpt from the book:
“Some things cannot be fixed,” Takeda said, stopping at her side. “We can only let them go.”
Thanks for reading!
