    Let’s face it: our friends are the best thing in our lives right now. They’re the best thing in our lives always, but with all the distractions of commuting and commerce and “normalcy” (whatever that means, right?) pushed to the side over these past few months, our friends have remained a constant – like the co-protagonists of our lives that they are. Today we’re celebrating unlikely friendships in literature and pop culture. Because all of our truly favorite people IRL started out as our own unlikely companions.

  • With the release of Bookish and the Beast only one month away and the preorder campaign kickoff (you can get an exclusive The Princess and the Fangirl short story and, if you're in the U.S., a signed bookplate), we thought now would be a good time to look at quotes from all three Once Upon a Con titles...and match them to your astrological sign!

    Are you a stubborn Taurus or a hustling Virgo? Do you know a Scorpio that reminds you of a Dalek? Whether you share on social or forward to a friend, these cards are perfect for looking in and out. Just click through to the image and then right click to save!

    The Baby-Sitters Club is getting a total makeover this summer with a new Netflix series that premieres on July 3. And while '80s nostalgia is very big these days (attention Stranger Things), The Baby-Sitters Club promises to be a 2020 update of the characters we know and love. Just take a look at the teaser trailer! There are smart phones littering the floor of Claudia Kishi’s room. That see-through landline is definitely a business decision. (Thanks, Kristy.)

    And while we love the Baby-Sitters Club, we can’t help but think about all the other book series we fell in love with in the '80s and '90s. For an exhaustive list, be sure to check out Gabrielle Moss’ Paperback Crush. And for a deep dive into how some of our faves might fare on Netflix, read on!  

  • We're closing out Pride Month with book recommendations to take you through the entire year. Even better? These book recs tie in with the Progress Pride Flag. Created by Daniel Quasar in 2018, this flag design incorporates the trans flag, as well as the black and brown stripes adopted by the City of Philadelphia in 2017. We are always growing and moving forward—something that these books and the Progress Pride Flag reflect. Enjoy these book recs, and Happy Pride!

    “You’re never fully dressed without a smile!” cheers the eponymous song from Broadway’s Annie, and pop culture is certainly filled with memorable characters who just can’t stop cheesin’. Some smiles are broad, others quiet and mischievous. Some smilers are clever tricksters and others are insecure middle schoolers, but regardless of style, we’re rounding up all of the most memorable mandibles in pop culture!
