First published in 2006, Sharp Objects is the first novel written by Gillian Flynn who has since shot to fame following the release of her most well known novel Gone Girl. Sharp Objects follows a newspaper journalist named Camille Preaker who returns to her hometown to cover a series of brutal murders. As the bodies begin to mount, Camille’s past comes back to haunt her and things get very creepy indeed.

It was announced in 2016 that HBO had begun developing an adaptation of the novel as an eight-episode mini series. The series is being produced by the same producer of the hit 2017 horror movie Get Out and will star Amy Adams in the role of Camille. The first teaser trailer has been released today by HBO and it certainly looks like it lives up to the unsettling nature of the novel.

Sharp Objects is set to air this Summer in July, try not to be too scared!

I wouldn’t say that Gothic fiction is exactly my thing, but I needed a novel of this genre for October’s Cwts Book Club. I trawled through my TBR pile and came across Shirley Jackson’s, We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I flew through the book, loving the mystery behind why the two girls, and their uncle are living away from the rest of the world, in their “castle”.

Imagine my delight when only a couple of days after I had finished We Have Always Lived in the Castle, I saw a trailer for the film version, which is released this month, starring Taissa Farmiga, Alexandra Daddario, and Sebastian Stan . Having watched the trailer, I can honestly say that it appears to follow the book, word for word. I now can’t wait to watch the rest and see Merricat and Constance’s story on the big screen!

As Halloween draws near we start thinking of costumes… And how we can tie in our literary heroes to our costume design…

The Handmaid’s Tale has proven to be very popular in recent times, thanks in part to Hulu’s fantastic adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel. As has been proven time and time again- if something has entered pop culture then it is fair game for capitalism to sink its claws in.

And so we welcome The Sexy Handmaid Halloween Costume to the Inappropriately Sexy Costume Hall of Fame.

Complete with white cloak and red bonnet, this “Brave Red Maiden” costume was just a bit much for even the kookiest Halloween fans (especially for the steep price of $65) and after a resounding ‘NOPE, THANKS THOUGH’ from customers- lingerie store Yandy pulled the costume within a day of its release.
