The stunning The Gilded Ones is getting adapted into a film. It is said to be the first of a trilogy. The company who has acquired the rights Makeready who are behind incredible films like 12 Years a Slave and Gone Girl definitely in good hands.

Daunt Rumoured to be Moving to Muswell Hill

There is a rumour floating around that the James Daunt is coming to Muswell Hill, London by bringing a Daunt Books to my town which I am not sure how I feel about it. They may be taking the space where the Muswell Hill Bookshop used to be. If so then I hope he will keep the supposed agreement that was that Muswell Hill Bookshop never sold books under the age 16 as the Muswell Hill Children’s Bookshop is across the street and the towns most treasured possession in my opinion (I have been going there since I was born).

V.E. Schwab’s New Comic


The incredibly talented V.E. Schwab is writing a comic and the cover has just been revealed. The comic is called Extraordinary which will launch this year in May. The comic is set in between Vicious and Vengeful so already book fans of V.E. Schwab will be very excited to go back to this world. The cover looks incredible and gives a creepy but intriguing vibe to it. The artwork is done by Enid Balám.

Fran Lebowitz’s New Essay Collection

I love Fran Lebowitz she is just such an incredible character and her TV show Pretend It’s A City with Martin Scorsese just cemented my love for her. When I heard she was writing a new essay collection I just had to tell you about it. It will be published by Virago and will be released later this year. Plus there is talk of her coming to London in 2022 on tour!
