When I saw that the trailer for Amazon Prime series adaptation of ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty‘ by Jenny Han was released I was skeptical to say the least. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the book trilogy in the first place, so I didn’t think the show would be any better. However, after seeing the trailer I am interested enough to give the show a chance.
‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ follows Belly as she gets caught in a love triangle between two brothers. The book takes place throughout the summer, and not only showcases first love, but heartbreak as well.
The trailer didn’t give too much away, but the acting looked very good. I am actually looking forward to watching the show, and reviewing it for you all. It might turn out to be above the books in my opinion. Although, I wasn’t a fan of Netflix’s ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ by Jenny Han film adaptation. Here’s hoping that Amazon does a better job on this trilogy.
We don’t know that much about the series, or how closely it will follow the books. However, Jenny Han seems to have a decent role in the development of the show, so it has been suspected that the series will be fairly similar to the books.
Things that we do know about the adaption is for one the release date, which is June 17th. There will be a total of seven episodes, and to be expected it will only focus on the first book in the trilogy, ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’.
Also, one cool thing about the trailer is that it featured “This Love (Taylor’s Version)”, which makes me suspect we might be getting a “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” album released soon. I know that has nothing to do with the series, but it is still exciting to me.
In the comments, let me know if you will be watching the show on Amazon Prime. Don’t forget to follow the blog, so you don’t miss out on my review of the series.
Until The Next Chapter,
Haven’t seen this yet, but seems interesting. Thanks for sharing!
I don’t currently have Amazon Prime so won’t be able to watch this but it does sound really good!
I will let you know how it was in my review of the series! But, I do think Amazon Prime has a 30 day free trial if you want to try it out.
