in Fiction by

Warning – spoilers for both the show and the books ahead! This summer’s Droughtlander is finally over! Season 3 of Outlander premieres this Sunday on Starz and we are SO READY for it. It’s been way too long since we last saw Jamie and Claire Fraser making out on our screens and it felt like this hiatus would never end. We’ve had a lot to wait for too. When last we left them, the pair of lovers had been heartbreakingly separated, with time traveler Claire heading back through the stones to raise their child in the ‘50s and ‘60s, and Jamie charging into battle at Culloden in 1745. Twenty years have passed since they last saw each other, though neither…

in Fiction by

There are few characters as awesome as Jamie Fraser, the hero of Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander series. Handsome, smart and loyal, Jamie is one of those rare book heroes who grab your heart from the very first page. It doesn’t hurt that he looks so great in a kilt, or that he’s so devoted to Claire, his time traveling wife and lady love. via GIPHY Thankfully, we get to see him in a kilt a lot these days. Ever since the TV show version aired on Starz back in 2014, we’ve been officially Jamie obsessed. And who can blame us? Sam Heughan makes the perfect Jamie, playing him as both broody and fun, the kind of guy we’d want to…

5 Survival Tips to Get You Through Thanksgiving with Your Nosy Relatives

in Fiction by

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means turkey, football and relatives who are w-a-y too nosy. Don’t get me wrong, family time is wonderful. We get to talk to cousins we haven’t seen in a year, see how big our nieces and nephews have grown and laugh about how silly we were when we were kids. But then there’s the times that you show up solo to dinner and the questions start. You know the ones I’m talking about: “Still no special someone?” asks your uncle. “Why aren’t you married yet? You’re so attractive,” suggests the aunt who has no filter. “Are you sure you’re not gay? Not that there’s anything wrong with that,” inquires Mom. And then there’s the grandparents…

Do You Agree with These Choices for Favorite Book Boyfriend?

in Fiction by

Sometimes you don’t just love a book; you worship it. And sometimes you don’t just like a character in that book; you want to marry them. Whether they’re broody and intense or sweet and sensitive, there’s just something about this guy or gal that you can’t get enough of. You comb the pages for mentions of their name, linger on your favorite passages, and, uh, imagine that you’re the one making out with them during love scenes. Luckily, there’s a phrase for these kind of obsessive reading-crushes. Book boyfriends (or girlfriends!). These are the characters you would die to meet in real life, the people you can actually imagine yourself falling in love with—if only they didn’t exist solely in…

Books for TV Addicts: Outlander update, and 3 great books while you wait

in Fiction by

If you aren’t watching Outlander, you need to remedy that. Immediately. The show is dreamily shot, filled with hot guys in kilts, and has some of the best sex scenes I’ve ever seen on television. Sam Heughan’s Jamie is a red-headed dreamboat, and so in love with Caitriona Balfe’s Claire that he regularly sacrifices himself for her. Sometimes with disturbing results.   Regular viewers are still reeling from the season finale in May, where we learned what really went down between Jamie and Randall in Wentworth prison. Spoiler alert—it wasn’t good. But now Jamie and Claire are trying to heal, and headed to France to stop the Scottish uprising. Fans of the book are already dying to know how Starz…
