It’s great when we can find a book series to get hooked on. Even better? When we can get hooked on a series and then find out it’s being turned into a TV show. Luckily, there are plenty of shows out there that have been based on best-selling novels. From vampire drama to the end of the world, books turned TV shows offer some excellent entertainment. Here are eight worth watching (and reading.)

1. Under the Dome

Based on the novel by well-known horror writer Stephen King, this CBS TV show focuses on a small town stuck under a dome. Week after week, the town has to try and work together to come up with solutions to deal with its limited medicine, food and water.
