Rose McGowan, Jackie Kennedy, Jojo Moyes and More: 31 New Books By or About Women

in Potpourri by

Since day one, women have been leading the way in 2018. Calling for more women to be considered for Grammys this past Sunday, to the second Women’s March a week ago and representing the #MeToo movement at the Golden Globes, women have made it clear that this is the year of the woman, that we will be heard and we are not backing down. In preparing the list of new books out this week, we found that an abundance of books we are looking forward to reading are penned by women or are about women (as is the case with J. Randy Taraboreilli’s book on Jacqueline Kennedy, the only book on our list written by a man). Here are this…

Discover La La Land: Novels that Chase Our Ultimate Dreams

in Fiction by

Can Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling only make movies together from now on, please? From their scene-stealing chemistry in Crazy, Stupid, Love to the ‘40s glamour of Gangster Squad, these two are just better together. Their latest collaboration, La La Land, is officially in theaters in an expanded release Christmas Day, December 25. It’s a quirky, surprisingly deep musical that’s already getting tons of great reviews (and Oscar buzz!), and it looks sooooo good: Romance, dancing, awesome musical numbers, and Ryan Gosling being super hot? You can bet that we’ll be first in line. The film is about a musician and an aspiring actress in LA who fall in love even as they’re busy chasing their careers – and the two pursuits…

The Perfect Book Boyfriends We Wish Existed in Real Life

in Fiction by

Let’s face it: if book boyfriends were like real boyfriends, then I would be a little fast, as my grandmother likes to put it. I have so many book boys that I’ve fallen for over the years, and so many more that I continue to fall for with every new book I read. I’ve even shared some of them here on BookTrib, including my love for Jace Herondale (swoon) and Jamie Fraser (all the swooning). But since then I’ve read a bunch more books and fallen for a bunch more guys. These are those characters who are hot and caring, strong and sensitive, charming but still gruff. If only book boyfriends existed in real life, amiright? Without further ado, here are…

2016 Book-To-Movie Adaptations that Lived Up to its Literary Counterpart

in Fiction by

You know the saying, “never judge a book by its cover?” Well, I’m going to shake it up a bit and throw this one out to you: how about never judge a book by its movie adaptation. For most people, the book is almost always better than the movie—typically you prefer to read a book before seeing the story in its movie form and that’s usually the case for most movie goers. But, every so often you stumble upon some hidden gems in the entertainment world that don’t totally screw up its literary counterpart. They’re just as good, if not better, than the book it’s based off of. Now, I’m not saying that every single movie on this list knocked it…

The 3 Jojo Moyes Books We’re Definitely Reading After Seeing ‘Me Before You’

in Fiction by

I have been counting down the seconds until Me Before You (Pamela Dorman Books, 2012) is released in theaters on June 3 (today, yay!). Ever since I read the book by Jojo Moyes, I haven’t been able to get this incredible story out of my head. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, and I promptly reread it as soon as I finished. This book is awesome, and I have high hopes for the movie version. Luckily, the adorable trailer hasn’t let me down yet:   Critics have been calling this the most romantic movie of the year, which is always a good sign. It’s not easy to capture the magic of a book on screen, but Me Before You…

5 Things We Must See in Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You Movie

in Fiction by

I like to read a massive tearjerker at least once a year. You know the books I mean: those stories that leave you emotionally gutted, clutching the pages to your chest while tears slip down your face. Two years ago, it was The Fault in Our Stars, which I read in one sitting, bawling so loudly my roommate knocked on my door to make sure I was OK. Thanks a lot, John Green. It’s not that I crave unpleasant experiences, but as an avid romance reader I’m used to happy endings. Sometimes it’s nice to mix it up with a book that delivers an emotional punch to the stomach, making you fall so hard for the characters that any tiny…

Heat Index: 5 Hot New Books Deserving of Their Own Category

in Fiction by

Have you ever had a completely random pile of books that you’re dying to read but don’t know which one to start first? That was my dilemma this week for Heat Index. Each of the books that I picked is fabulous in its own right, but I just didn’t have a category that each one fit in. That is, until I had five of them and the category made itself! From a magical and dystopian world, to WWII, to love a second time around, there’s something here for everybody. The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine, Alex Brunkhorst (MIRA Books, September 22, 2015) “Brunkhorst’s story is full of memorable characters and contains a first-rate plot; the latter will delightfully surprise the reader.…
