By now, you've no doubt watched (and re-watched) the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney's novel, Normal People. The 12-part series was released this month, giving us a visual retelling of Connell (Paul Mescal) and Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) venturing through school and college, grappling to figure out their complicated relationship.
The story is devastating, uplifting and defining - making it unsurprising it took just hours after it dropped to have the attention of the world. The series was so influential, Connell's neck chain now even boasts its own Instagram account (with over 83,000 followers).
If you're a fan of Rooney's, you'll also know that Normal People is not her only novel. The Irish author's acclaimed debut, Conversations With Friends, tells the tale of two college students, Frances and Bobbi, and the strange, unexpected connection they forge with married couple Melissa and Nick.

Now that too is getting the TV treatment, with co-producer Ed Guiney revealing the novel will be turned into another 12-part series for BBC Three.
"We're adapting Conversations with Friends as a television series." he shared with Heart.
Academy Award-nominated director Lenny Abrahamson, who was also behind Normal People, will return too.
"I love its depth, humour and freshness, and it’s an honour to be involved in bringing it to the screen," Abrahamson said. “I’m particularly happy that my connection to Sally and her work is set to continue. Making Normal People has been a singular pleasure and I’m excited to be working with the same brilliant team again on Conversations With Friends.”
No cast or release details have been confirmed yet, so stay tuned.
As for the future of Connell and Marianne?
“Not in the short term,” Guiney said. "Maybe down the line we’ll come back to Connell and Marianne.”
