4 Book to Screen Adaptations That We're Excited About

The summer blockbusters have come and gone, but with fall traditionally comes quite a few page-to-screen adaptations of our favorite books and series. But, if your life is anything like ours, then it’s probably pretty hectic. As much as we would love to see the latest movies to hit the big screen, we simply don’t have the time required to see every book-to-screen adaptation that rolls through our local movie theatre. Our solution? See one movie a month. The four films listed below are set to be released now through the end of the year, so we feel confident that we can squeeze them in.

Why I'm Not Ashamed to Read Trashy Romance Novels

It's easy to get a little embarrassed when your literati friends ask what you're currently reading... and the answer is a trashy romance novel. These books often have a stigma attached, that the audience is completely made up of crazy-cat-ladies indulging in an indiscretion. Obviously these broad generalizations don't line up with reality, so why the weird guilt? It's not necessary.

Frostbeard 5-Year Recap

Frostbeard is five years old! Looking back, as usually happens, it feels both a longer and shorter amount of time in the making.

I swear I've spent half my life stickering wicks, but alas, it's only been a few years!
