  • Just when you thought the magic was over, it revs right back up. Hold on to your hats, muggles. In honor of the new script, we've rounded up some bookish gear and accessories perfect for writers and readers who love the series. 

  • Tomorrow's the International Day of Friendship, y’all!

  • If you're near the West End of London this July, you're probably like, "What's with the long lines outside the Palace Theatre?" That is, until you remember that the Palace Theatre is home to the debut production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.  As London’s answer to the buzz around Hamilton (which has yet to reach the UK), Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is sold out until June 2017 – and the next round of tickets are eagerly awaited.

  • This week, Illumination Entertainment releases its latest charming animation – The Secret Life of Pets. Starring Louis C K and Jenny Slate, this is a classic odd couple comedy… with an adorable twist! The odd couple in question are Max and Duke – a purebred pop and his new roommate, Duke the mongrel. The entire story is told from the perspective of the pets, not only Duke and Max, but all the four-legged residents of their Manhattan apartment building as they battle an evil white bunny named Snowball.

    It’s always fun to look at the world through a different pair of eyes, and animal narrators have long been a favorite in film and literature. The Secret Life of Pets promises to be a cute new look at the lives of our furry friends, and while it’s sure to include a few jokes for the grown up, it’s a film to appeal mostly to kid and tweens. So to celebrate its release, we’ve rounded up ten of the best creature-centric books for younger readers – if your kids love the movie, head on over to the bookstore and pick up some of these classics for them to enjoy!

  • Hollywood executives constantly seem to be looking for the next amazing bestseller to turn into a massive blockbuster movie (this last year has seen success in everything from comic books like Deadpool and Marvel’s Civil War, to popular thrillers like Gone Girl.)  Yet when it comes to reality TV, the background of carefully composed reality shows have provided plenty of narratives for novel plotlines – The Hunger Games was famously influenced by Survivor, while The Bachelor provides a wry backbone for Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible.
