Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow is so wildly adaptable for a film that it gives me great hope it’s already on James Gunn’s list for the new (except his stuff) DC. It needs some depth which a good screenwriter can easily supply but it really is just ripe for a movie. I just didn’t love the … More Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow
Margaret Rogerson is definitely officially on my must read authors list after Vespertine. So far her books are consistently enjoyable with strong stories and great female leads. Vespertine is no different. And though it’s not a stand alone like her other books I think it could easily still work as a stand alone.
I’ve been a fan of Batgirl for a while. Loved the version on Harley Quinn been waiting with baited breath (and admittedly less and less hope) for a good live-action version. And recently did some comic readings one Cassandra Cain (and Barbara) and one Barbara and they were all worth it!

So Cameron Bright is another MC that people seem to love or hate and if I’m being honest… I loved her. Maybe it’s because The Taming of the Shrew was also one of my favorite plays but this is honestly one of my favorite contemporaries in a while.
Since the Oscars are this Sunday I thought I’d do 12 Books that Should Be Films (or series) Right now! And since Circe- one of my recent favorites got optioned for a series I thought I’d get specific to ones with great roles for women!
King of Scars By: Leigh Bardugo Grade: A King of Scars was in my top three most anticipated books of 2019 and it didn’t let me down! Though that ending… Just a warning there are spoilers in here for the Shadow and Bone trilogy and for Six of Crows (especially in terms of fatalities in … More Only Nikolai Could Live Up to His Hype: King of Scars
Honor Among Thieves By: Ann Aguirre & Rachel Caine Grade: A+ I have to get out of the way that I don’t like the title or the cover and wasn’t planning to read this until I heard it was about a girl who is one of the Honors chosen to go on a year long … More I Would Totally Travel Leviathan
