  • 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.

  • Her illustrious career makes Oprah the sort of person who doesn't need an introduction, not really, so before we embarrass ourselves, we’ll just get right into it. In honor of Oprah’s birthday, we’re rolling out a selection of some of her boss literary roles in film. Which are your favorites?

  • 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.

  • I love Studio Ghibli. When Howl’s Moving Castle came to theaters, I must’ve taken the hour and a half drive four—maybe five?—times to the only theater playing it in my region. I loved the colors, and the characters, and the story (even though it was miles different from the novel by Diana Wynne Jones, which I love equally as much and re-read every year). The Cat Returns is my pick-me-up whenever I feel sad, and Porco Rosso is the hilarious and heartfelt comfort on rainy days.

    My other comfort, my love, my obsession—is books.

    So I thought, why not try to pair the two together like a nice cheese and some red wine?
