  • We all have one. The woman who knows we need a hug before we even say a word. The friend whose texts always seem to come at the right time. The confidant who always happens to be reading the same book as us. Our Galentine. And while we’re happy to shower this friend with gifts every February 13th, this year we’re stepping up our game with book recommendations for an incredible two-person book club – guaranteed. It’s a Galentine’s Day you’ll both remember for years to come.

  • Galentine’s Day is just around the corner and no amount of planning and scheming can make up for the fact that the holiday always sneaks up on us.

  • The Post is nominated for Best Picture for Oscars 2018! The movie, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, is based on a true story. It tells the incredible tale of a US Government cover up, the first female publisher of a major newspaper, and that paper (The Washington Post) as it attempts to take on the government for the right to reveal the truth. It’s a film that is perfectly positioned for the early days of 2018; an inspirational story, a female lead, a basis in truth, and a reminder of why the traditional media is so important in a time where the news comes more and more through social media and alternative channels. 

    The Post is also likely to reignite a spark of fascination with the newspaper industry—and the kind of hard-hitting reporting that inspires so many to become journalists. It may also interest people in the fictional stories of papers; those that appear in our favorite books and series, that have a little fun with the usual real-world format, that report some far more interesting news than we will ever see. We’re rounding up the best of them!

  • There’s no getting around it. Rosamund Pike is an author’s dream. Whether she’s portraying the eldest sister in Jane Austen’s quintessential novel, playing the mentoring and stunning Helen in the adaptation of Lynn Barber’s memoir, or keeping us all on edge as Gillian Flynn’s perfect antihero, her versatility and commitment to the craft makes every moment on screen echo with the intimacy between a book and its reader. As Rosamund Pike’s birthday draws near, we’re diving into her literary roles – those we love and those we’re eager to fall in love with.

  • Is binge-watching a TV or movie franchise really a good use of your time? Of course it is, especially if you follow our advice.
