Entertainment-related Reads

I was pretty horrible about reading non-fiction this year. One of my goals for 2019 is to make a formal list of (and begin tackling) all of the unread books on my movie-themed bookcase. If I succeed with that goal, you can expect plenty of book reviews and recommendations here throughout 2019! Here’s what I read in 2018:

  • Actresses as authors:
    • Any Man by Amber Tamblyn
    • Bonfire by Krysten Ritter
  • Biography:
    • The Girl in Alfred Hitchcock’s Shower by Robert Graysmith
  • Seen on stage and screen:
    • Bird Box by Josh Malerman
    • The Land That Time Forgot by Edgar Rice Burroughs
    • The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe by Jane Wagner
  • Soon (or someday) to be seen on the screen:
    • The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon (To be adapted as a future season of Outlander)
    • The Grownup by Gillian Flynn (Optioned for film)
    • My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix (Optioned for film)
    • November Road by Lou Berney (Optioned for film)
    • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (Optioned for film)
    • The Wonder by Emma Donaghue (Optioned for film)

If you’re curious about what else I read, you can see my full year in books on Goodreads (and feel free to friend me there)!
