Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year

  • Claire NorthPen name of author Catherine Webb, under which she writes incredible thrillers with a supernatural twist! I’m hooked on her novels and will continue to devour everything she puts out.
  • Sarah J. Maas Okay, so maybe this wasn’t considered “recently”, but it was primarily within the last year, and I can’t get enough of her writing!  I’m biting my nails down to nubs waiting for the next installment in both of her series. My impatience is at a level even I can’t fathom!

Most anticipated book turned movie/tv show?

For 2016, it was definitely

  • “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kiplingand it was amAZing! Although it was more of an adaptation of the original Disney film and less Rudyard Kipling’s novel, it was still a good watch for what it was!

For the year 2017, I have to go with television – well, sort of…

Hulu is releasing a television show based on “A Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood (trailer below!)
