Adaptations And News
Love this promo image for the upcoming Big Little Lies season two.
All the congratulations to Sandra Oh for winning the Golden Globe for Lead Actress in a Drama for her role on Killing Eve. The show is so good that even Netflix told people to watch it even though it’s streaming on rival Hulu.
Speaking of watching Killing Eve we now have a premiere date for season 2: April 7 at 8 p.m. ET on BBC America. April can’t get here fast enough.
The trailer for the new Carmen Sandiego is here and one Rioter discusses her feels and thoughts.
A Quiet Place by Seicho Matsumoto, Louise Heal Kawai (Translation) is $1.99 and great for fans of slow-burn suspense with a punch.
And if you’re looking for a British procedural with a criminal psychologist: Insidious Intent (Tony Hill & Carol Jordan #10) by Val McDermid is $1.99 !
A Bit Of My Week In Reading
I got my hands on two galleys I’m super excited to read: Girl Gone Missing by Marcie R. Rendon (May 14, Cinco Puntos Press) and The Plotters by Un-su Kim (January 29, Doubleday). The first follows a young Chippewa woman who “begins to dream the Cities and blonde Scandinavian girls calling for help” and the second is “an alternate Seoul where assassination guilds compete for market dominance.”
I just downloaded two audiobooks: Tana French’s 1st mystery In the Woods in preparation for the upcoming adaptation series; Black Edge by Sheelah Kolhatkar since I’m still obsessed with nonviolent true crime.
