As the world has been watching, Keanu Reeves has been quietly turning 2019 into the year of the Reeves. Between the third installment of the massively popular John Wick franchise, a hilarious role in Always Be My Maybe (that has fast become the stuff of meme-legend), a voice role in Toy Story 4, and then his appearance at E3 promoting Cyberpunk 2077, Keanu has been all over entertainment this year. It’s more than that, however. Reeves has been announced as the Internet’s Boyfriend because he’s just so darn lovely. In a world of constant negativity, Reeves’s unalloyed happiness and straightforward kindness is so refreshing that it’s no wonder the world has gone a little nuts about him.

But what happens after this season’s Demogorgon makes their final exit? How will we process the quintessential '80s teenage experience that Will, Dustin, Lucas, Mike, Max and Eleven suddenly find themselves in? With '80s pop culture, of course.

When Bachelor in Paradise premieres next month, we’ll be waiting with baited breath to see what kind of massive drama is going to pop up this time. Will John Paul Jones get stuck in a loop saying his name over and over again? (John Paul Jones. John Paul Jones.) Will Cam make us want to throw our remotes at the television. (Again?) Will Demi try to suss out who exactly is there for the right reasons?
One thing’s for sure, they’ll be on reality TV vacation in Mexico, not diving into the worlds of some of literature’s most incredible settings. But what if they were? Would it affect the outcome of the show? Would it change who arrived to film the show in the first place? There’s only one way to find out.

Photo and quote from author Astrid Lindgren's website:
"The Lemonade Tree in the Villa Villekulla garden – the one with the hollow trunk where Pippi, Tommy and Annika found lemonade – was one of the ancient elm trees which are still there at Näs."
While trees deserve love every single day of the year, today we’re taking time out to appreciate some of the most famous and memorable trees of pop culture and the literary world. While there are plenty of trees throughout literature (and not just because, you know, books are made of trees), these are some of our favorites.
