The Many Literary Roles of Margot Robbie

Birds of Prey came out this past weekend and we cannot stop thinking about Margot Robbie. We are sufficiently freaked out by her Harley Quinn role – primarily because she seems to jump right off the pages of a DC comic, but also because she’s a freakin’ supervillain! To celebrate the release of this movie – and the killer last few years Margot Robbie has had at the box office – we’re diving into her resume and turning over every literary role she’s ever played.

Book Recs for the Characters in Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine Nine has just launched its seventh season, with an eighth already confirmed, and fans are thrilled that this epic cop comedy has found a new home on NBC and can keep making us laugh. Police work may be serious business in the real world, but in this fictionalized slice of Brooklyn, it is anything but, with the detectives of the Nine-Nine constantly getting up to all kinds of ridiculous hijinks…and with all that going on, it’s unlikely that most of them have any time to read (except Amy, of course, who will always find time to read), but in case they do, we’ve got the perfect picks for each of them!

Book Recommendations for the Cast of CHEER

It’s National Girls and Women in Sports Day and if you’re anything like us, you’re only thinking of one female dominated sport: cheer. Or, more specifically, CHEER on Netflix. We’ve been biting our nails in anticipation of Daytona – even though we could have easily Googled the results, even though we know Navarro Cheer is the best in the land. And now that we’ve exhausted this incredibly addictive series, all we want to do is cheer on the women of CHEER. Which is how we came up with the not nerdy at all, totally normal idea of sending them some book recommendations.

Book Recommendations for Eleanor Shellstrop from The Good Place

The Good Place is taking its final bow – and we can’t help feeling a little sad thinking about it. This show has been such a big part of our lives, pushing us to be genuinely better people. And while we’ll always have those old episodes to look back on (thank you, Netflix) we’re really going to miss this show. Which is why we’re giving one last gift to the fans, those extended members of Team Cockroach who’ve been right there with us week after week: a list of books we think Eleanor Shellstrop would love.

Book Recommendations for Tahani Al-Jamil from The Good Place

The Good Place is reaching the end of its run. And while that news makes us genuinely teary eyed, we’re super happy that this team is ending the show on their own terms and giving their fans so much attention and care. (Have you listened to The Good Place: The Podcast? It’s amazing.) And while we could spend all day listing our favorite Good Place moments – um, basically whenever Chidi looks at Eleanor – we want to end the show with our own tribute to the fans, with some book recommendations for Tahani Al-Jamil.

Book Recommendations Based on Your Favorite Cheese

Yesterday was National Cheese Lover’s Day, and while we could spend hours waxing poetic about brie and gouda and blue cheese and oh wow is it lunch time yet? Does anyone have a perfectly curated cheese plate we could just, um, have? No one? Well, in that case, let’s use our cheese powers for good and recommend some books based on your favorite fromage.
