  • The sun is out, the weather is perfect, and you have three glorious days off in a row. What better way to enjoy this rare combination than to spend the entire weekend reading outside under a tree? So grab your favorite picnic blanket (and a bottle of sunscreen!) and immerse yourself in the worlds of these incredible weekend reads.

  • Dead narrators in literature, plays, and film aren’t uncommon, especially when one considers ghosts, zombies, and other supernatural beings that are dead, but… not. We’ve compiled a list of a few books that utilize the trope of posthumous narration without going the supernatural route.

  • Reading can be thirsty work. Why not kick back and relax with a nice glass of wine?  We've done hours of research (hiccup) on the best fictional wines and their real world counterparts. Bottoms up!

  • As space pioneer Sally Ride’s birthday approaches (May 26) and discussion of the incredible women in Hidden Figures demands attention and captivates imaginations, we consider the role of women in science and how, for years, their stories have been superseded by their male counterparts. Today we honor Sally Ride and the countless women who broke boundaries and denied stereotypes by highlighting exceptional accounts of their stories.

  • This past Monday was World Goth Day, an opportunity for goths of all creeds and subcultures to come together and celebrate the goth community as a whole. That idea took many of us down a trip to memory lane: specifically, to the early 2000s, when we were in high school and expressing ourselves with goth music and fashion meant we were cutting edge. As we tossed around recollections of saving up for a lace-trimmed skirt at Hot Topic or an album by The Cure, we wondered: what if some of our favorite authors were in high school at the same time? How would they act? How would they look?

    The following, friends, are our best guesses at how six beloved authors would make out as teenaged goths.
