    The new season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is here and we are so excited to see what Tina Fey and the rest of the writing team have in store for us. In between seasons, we spend a lot of time thinking about what Kimmy’s reading and recommending. This time around, we’re building a bunker friendly reading list for our quirky heroine – filled with dragons, apocalypse fiction, missing people, and survival manuals. Because reading the same Baby-Sitters Club Book over and over again can get old fast.

  • This Father's Day, treat Dad to a great book. Read on for our staff picks!

  • This month’s release of Solo: A Star Wars Story has a lot of people excited to see the posthumous return of Han Solo. But if you’ve been paying attention to social media, you know there’s a solid chance that ticket sales will equally be driven by Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando Calrissian. And with good reason. With the flash of a single, mischievous smile, we’re reminded of exactly what makes this character great: the enigmatic man with a perpetual ace up his sleeve. This roguish quality has led to novels, comics, video games, and more. And in each of them, Lando narrowly escapes danger to see another day, truly cashing in on each of his nine lives. And that’s exactly what makes him the perfect inspiration for this post and a leader to those that followed in his steps: absolute heroes that absolutely should be dead by now.

    When Arie aka the worst Bachelor to ever grace our television screens proposed to and then broke up with Becca in the season finale, it took everything in our power not to destroy our TVs and call the medium completely dead. After remembering that there’s a lot of amazing television out there and that Arie’s season was a devastating blow to an otherwise successful franchise, we turned our thoughts to the literary. As Becca Kufrin takes on the role of Bachelorette, she’s showing us that sometimes the best revenge is living your best life. Here are our favorite literary heroines who live by the same dictum – if not a little more revenge-y.

  • It’s time to break out the black eyeliner. May 22 is World Goth Day! From the early days of the subculture steeped in goth-rock, the goth world has expanded to encompass a whole range of ways to rock the black — from the cute to the historic, and the old-school to the surprisingly colorful stylings of pastel and raver goths. And of course, being the bookworms that we are, we’ll be celebrating this May 22 with the perfect literary picks for every goth, no matter your style.

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover. We’ve heard this all our lives, and the saying is true. However, there are some gorgeous covers out there — and some of them can even double as decor.
