‘Ello, this is the TV Tuesday Meme! It’s quite simple, every Tuesday you’ll do these things:
- Link back to the originator (Codie @Reader’s Anonymous)
Choose between these three:
- Book-to-Movie/TV show adaptation (have you seen it? If no, do you plan to?)
- Book you think should be a movie/TV show (Why?)
- Movie/TV show that prompted you to read a book?
*Optional – put up the trailer

Book you think should be a movie/TV show (Why?)
The Reanimation Files is a series by A. J. Locke (click here for my review of book 1) that embodies the definition of properly written paranormal fiction. Paranormal fiction has decreased in popularity over the last two years, however, there was a time that there was a high demand for quality paranormal fiction, therefore high supply of them. Vampires, ghosts, UFOs (not aliens, though, that’d be getting into Science Fiction), psychics, wizards, etc. are all common elements of paranormal fiction and extremely easy to make cheesy. The Reanimation Files have the key qualities and features that showcases the “positive” side of paranormal fiction. There’s character development, quality plot, complexity, and an extremely magnetic world we’re enveloped in.
Diversity is something television is lacking (except The Get Down on Netflix, which everyone should give a shot) and these novels are bursting through the seams with it. Our heroine is, Selene and she’s black (I think…) and her boyfriend is mixed (black and white, I think…), her ghostly friends range on color spectrum and it has a very nice mixture of colors. There’s also the lack of women of color in the paranormal/fantasy/sci-fi world. I can list the amount of popular shows and movies that involved them on one hand – probably.
If you’ve watched and enjoyed Lost Girl (Canadian TV series) you’d love this series and it definitely deserves a chance at the silver screen.
