We get it. It’s cold, it’s Friday, if you’re in the US it’s the start of a three day weekend. So we’re making things easier for you and compiling some highlights that you don’t want to miss! Before you crack open that bottle of wine or get cosy with your book of the week, take a look at what we’ve been up to.
For a laugh:
Ashley treated us to a Friday LOL with a roundup of this week’s funniest book-related tweets. It’s got it all; Gatsby, Potter, March. Ok, now I’m just listing surnames but they’re all in there! Have a read here.
For a cry:
When you need to sober up from your laugh, have a look at Emilia’s take on tears. The focus is on Heather Christle’s The Crying Book, which gives an insight into tears, human experience, mental health, the works.
It was a BIG week in the realm of book adaptations, with loads of news about all of your favorite books and their move to the screen. We’re talking Witches and Anne Hathaway, the BBC’s Normal People and everyone’s favorite Netflix stalker.
Making us shiver with antici….pation:
New year, new books. Lauren takes us through a few books to have on our lists coming into the spring. It’s a YA dream!
