From Book Riot And Around The Internet
‘Our House’ By Louise Candlish Is The Perfect Book For Thriller Readers And True Crime Podcast Addicts (Don’t read the last few paragraphs if you don’t like spoilers.)
News and Adaptations
The cover reveal for Caleb Roehrig’s upcoming Death Prefers Blondes is awesome AND I’m super excited to read it as it’s about a teenage cat burglar and her crew of kickboxing drag queens. Is it January yet?!
Remember last week’s article about the guy who rigged the McDonald’s Monopoly game? Turns out there was a bidding war to make a film out of the true story and the winner was: “20th Century Fox and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s production company Pearl Street Films, which bid an eye-watering $1 million for the 8,700-word online long read (most articles command option fees of less than $1,000).”
Some Dan Brown favorites have gotten updated covers. While I thought that was already the cover for The Da Vinci Code, the Inferno cover is making me want to swap my owned copy so well played publishing!
Read That Watch This
Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime by Ron Stallworth is a quick memoir about a black police officer who once tricked the KKK into making him a member in Colorado Springs during the ’70s. Currently in theaters is Spike Lee’s adaptation starring John David Washington and Adam Driver (Trailer). I went with the audiobook, since it’s narrated by the author, and I will say it’s depressing as hell that this is not only our history but *looks around* our current state. (TW for racism/ antisemitism/ xenophobia) (Related article: Spike Lee on ‘BlacKkKlansman’ and Life in Trump’s America)
