Some of the biggest hits on TV nowadays are adaptations of popular books, ranging from fantasy series like Game of Thrones to the complex mysteries of Sherlock. Netflix even recently released its own adaptation of the young adult series A Series of Unfortunate Events, but there are still plenty of book sagas out there that could be fantastic on the small screen, of course. So, in honor of the Lemony Snicket's new take on live-action, we've come up with eight young adult book series that would be perfect for TV.

Artemis Fowl, Eoin Colfer

The eight-book Artemis Fowl series follows teenage genius and criminal mastermind Artemis as he comes up with a plot to extort gold from a group of Fairy People. The antihero runs into all kinds of magical creatures in his schemes, and his stance on the Fairies shifts significantly as he grows up. The saga was a huge financial success, a hit with critics, and has attracted a ever-growing following of fans. Many attempts have been made over the past 15 years to launch an Artemis Fowl film franchise, but none have come to fruition just yet. The complex nature of the books could mean that they would be better suited for television than movies, and the eight-book total means that it could last quite a while without running out of source material.
