Oprah Winfrey, the Queen of Talk and of Books has been encouraging people to pick up books and read for over two decades through Oprah’s Book Club.

And while I enjoyed the chaste tale of true love, I was looking for something a little more, well, PG-13. Or R. Or, let’s face it, even NC-17. That’s when I discovered…

in Fiction by

Arrow is returning Wednesday, October 7, and fans of “Olicity” Can. Not. Wait. SPOILER ALERT! Oliver (Stephen Amell) rode off into the sunset with his computer-tech lady love, Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) last May, and producers are promising a bit of domestic bliss at the start of the new season.
