One of the reasons many Outlander fans were drawn to the show at first was because they'd read the books and wanted to see the adaptation. Here are eight more shows based on books to help you get through Droughtlander.

When Outlander first started, the show pulled in a lot of fans of the novels by Diana Gabaldon. Many had asked for years for the books to turn into a series and eagerly anticipated the adaptation. They wanted to see the show come to life. And that's the case with many other novels. If it was the idea of the adaptation that drew you to Outlander, you'll want something similar to get through Droughtlander.

There are a number of different styles of books on this list. I want to cover all the genres that Gabaldon covers in her series, including the love story, the period drama, the magic of time travel, and the real historical elements. There is something to capture all interests, even if none of them will quite replace Claire and Jamie.

Some of these shows have come to an end. Others are still going. There are shows running for 12 seasons and others that have really only just begun, giving you plenty of material to make it through the next few months of Droughtlander.
