No matter where you sit on the books-to-film bandwagon, from the books are always better perspective to the standing in line at every premiere fan, you must admit: some adaptations are better than others. Way better. To help with your potential Thanksgiving weekend viewing — because what’s better than watching books, if you can’t be reading them?
Thanksgiving weekend is almost here! While we pack up and get ready spend time with loved ones (and stuff our faces), you better believe we're bringing along a book or five to keep the family craziness at bay. Here's what the RT editors are reading this long weekend:
Ah, classic literary fiction. It can be so wonderful, but at times dense, leaving us wishing for a guide to lead us through the venerable prose. Enter: Italian artist and writer Francesco D'Isa, who reviews the classics in a candid, tongue-in-cheek (and very short) way.
Listen, sometimes we have problems with closure. We just love our books, okay? We know you understand. Which is why we were so excited when we heard Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner were editing an anthology set in Sookie's universe, penned by some our favorites, including Rachel Caine, MaryJanice Davidson and Seanan McGuire.
We're all for being yourself and loving who you are, but haven't you ever wished to be someone else — if just for a moment? In Aimee Carter's The Blackcoat Rebellion series, a young woman is given the chance to impersonate the Prime Minister's late niece.
