Treat yourself to a new novel! If you're getting tired of staring at your screen all day, it may be time for you to switch up your streaming routine. There are plenty of Netflix shows based on books that will take you on all the same adventures in a totally different way.

For years people have been debating whether on-screen adaptations or books are better, but at the end of the day, it usually comes down to personal preference.

Some like to see the story played out for them while they watch, and others like to create their own characters and set the scene in their head while they read.

From fantastic, mystical beast hunters to Canadian adventures in the early 1900s, there's something for everyone to enjoy. If you're a fan of young adult content, you'll want to check out Dare Me, or if you're in the mood for something more shocking, add The Sinner to your list.

With plenty of warm summer days right around the corner, there's no time like the present to pick up a brand new book to read while you soak up the sun.
