Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, the totalitarian and theocratic rule that has replaced the government of the United States. Women can no longer have jobs, own money, read or write, or do much of anything anymore, other than what they’ve been assigned. Handmaids are assigned to . . .
It's Christmas in New York, and for Dash, he's blessedly been left completely and totally alone. His mom thinks he's with his dad, and his dad thinks he's with his mom. Left to his own devices, Dash wanders around the city in Grinch-like fashion. He winds up at his favorite bookstore, where he finds a red notebook that . . .
Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy picks up right where season 1 left off: the gang is about to be destroyed, with the rest of the world, by the moon crashing into Earth (thanks, Vanya). So Five does what he does best and zaps them all out of there, back to the 1960s. Unfortunately, they wind up . . .
If you’ve watched the preview for Hulu’s Palm Springs and thought, um, this just looks like a modern-day Groundhog Day, you’re only half right. It does have the same premise---a man finds himself trapped in a time loop, living out the same day over and over again---but it’s a fresh take on that idea, and brings enough of its own . . .
Lara Jean and Peter are together now. For real. And LJ feels like she's in a dream. But every time she experiences a 'first' with Peter, she can't help think about the fact that he's already had these firsts---with Gen. And then, suddenly, one of Lara Jean's past love interests, John Ambrose, comes back into her life, and Laura Jean can't . . .
I just finished You S2 and, as a reader of the books, I have MANY questions. And many opinions!
In 2019, I decided to post about more than just books and adaptations.

In honor of Halloween this year, I read for the first time Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Obviously I was dying to watch the Netflix series when it came out, but I told myself I'd get around to it. After finally reading the novel this year, I discovered there are film adaptations, too. I decided to only watch the . . .
When a beautiful woman wanders into the bookstore where Joe works, he is immediately obsessed with her. He must know who she is. After Googling the name on her credit card, he’s in luck: only 1 Guinevere Beck shows up in NYC. Even better, Beck (as her friends call her) has a public Facebook page and a ridiculously active . . .
The Blackwoods have lived in the house upon the hill for generations. There used to be more Blackwoods, but now there’s only three: Mary Katherine (who goes by Merricat), her sister Constance, and their Uncle Julian. The other Blackwoods were killed years ago by poison, a crime Constance was accused of and then acquitted. But the people in . . .
