Avengers Film Begs a New Look at ’16 Black Panther Comic

in Pop Culture by

Black Panther has taken the world by storm.  In fact, it is so popular, the new Avengers: Infinity Wars film was moved up from its original release date of May 4 to April 27 and a new trailer featuring more of the beloved characters from the film has appeared on television and across social media. With the success of the film and its star Chadwick Boseman’s hilarious portrayal of T’Challa on SNL, Marvel’s Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Book 1 (written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, winner of the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfiction and recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant) deserves a new, more introspective look. It would be unfair to say that he’s arguably one of the most important…

Is Shattered Glass The New Profile of A Woman For Trendy Book Covers?

in Fiction by

They say to never judge a book by its cover, but most of us are guilty of picking up a shiny novel just because of the awesome book cover image. It’s hard not to be enticed by a particularly cool graphic or just the right picture to whet your appetite. Book covers are works of art in and of themselves, pulling in the audience and setting the stage for the reading experience to come.  But if you’ve browsed enough bookstores, you start to notice that some of the covers look alike.

Jonesin’ For a Fix: Books for TV Addicts Who Love Orphan Black

in Fiction by

Can we please talk about Orphan Black for a minute? Because OMG it’s so good. While some series lag in its later seasons, Orphan Black just keeps getting better and better, adding to the Sci-fi mysteries and building a complex world that sweeps the viewer along with it. Tatiana Maslany is a force to be reckoned with, playing each clone with so much skill that you often forget she’s the same person. We clearly love Orphan Black here at BookTrib, so much that we’re still Jonesin’ for it, three years after it first premiered. If you’re not part of the Clone Club like the rest of us, it’s time to remedy that ASAP. Just look at this trailer for season…

But surely his friend and lawyer Victoria didn’t need to fly down from Toronto overnight. After all, the police would let him go once he sobered up and paid his fine. Right? Except for the little matter of a murder. And Ben’s buying a beachside bar from the victim, hours before…

Video: Interview with Diane Saxton and Peregrine Island: A Novel

in Fiction by

The Peregrine family’s lives are turned upside down one summer when so-called “art experts” appear on the doorstep of their Connecticut island home to appraise a favorite heirloom painting. When incriminating papers, as well as other paintings, are discovered behind the artwork in question, the appraisal turns into a full-fledged investigation. Antagonism mounts between grandmother, mother, and child, who begin to suspect one another, as well as the shady newcomers in their midst, of foul play. As the summer progresses and the Peregrines discover facts about their past in the course of the investigation, they learn that people―including them―are not always who they appear to be. But when they uncover the painting’s deepest secret, it gives them the gift of…
