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…

I’m also a 20-something college grad who doesn’t have a clue.

Allie Brosh Making Solutions Problematic Once Again

in Non-Fiction by

So when popular online figures extend their reach into the world of traditional publishing, I usually meet the announcement with a less than enthusiastic, “Meh.” But that is definitely not the case when the real-world offering legitimately brings something new to fans of the inter-star (aka “internet star.” I should totally trademark that term).
