Peaky Blinders is Back! Here’s 3 Books to Read Before You Binge

in Fiction by

On a whim the other day, I decided to watch Peaky Blinders on Netflix. Fifteen hours later I emerged, bleary-eyed and speaking in a vaguely British accent. It’s official: I’m hooked. It’s good timing too, since the third season is getting released on Netflix on May 31. The show is already airing on BBC Two in the UK, and I may or may not have been up until 3 a.m. last night reading spoilers on the Internet. I just can’t help it! This show is SO. GOOD. Peaky Blinders is about the Shelbys, a gangster family in early 1920s Birmingham, England. The main character is Tommy, the second oldest son, and, just like most of the young men in England,…

Heat Index: 5 Hot New Books that are Both Visually Beautiful and Emotionally Moving

in Fiction by

I’m a visual person. I love “pretty” things. I love colorful things. So when I perused my many stacks of books on my desk for ideas for this week’s Heat Index, my eye was drawn to five gorgeous hardcover books sitting beautifully in a pile. I knew then, regardless of the topic, that these books needed to be in a list together. Then I read each synopsis and it was like the stars had aligned. Each book begins similarly by showing the protagonist’s current life, but the comfortable lifestyle each character was living is soon thrown completely off-course, leading them to situations and people they could have never expected. Old love, new love, suspense, thrill and the power that lies within a story itself…

Quantico is Heating Up Sunday Night TV

in Fiction by

Guys. I watched the first episode of Quantico (premieres Sunday, September 27 at 10 p.m. on ABC) and I have so many feelings they might burst right out of my chest. This show is good. Like, Alias meet Homeland meets How to Get Away with Murder good. It tells the story of a new recruit class at Quantico, the highly competitive FBI training facility. From the start, we bounce between the different characters and their stories, but the main focus is on new agent Alex Parrish, played by Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra. She wakes up in the wreckage of a devastating terrorist attack at Grand Central Station in New York City and has to recall her time spent at Quantico…
