Hi Savvy Readers! Happy Friday to you all! As we move full steam ahead into the weekend, we want to make sure you’re all caught up on all of this week’s bookish news. So here’s a brand new edition of Bookmarks, our weekly roundup of all the goings on from the book world.
1. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James to be adapted into the second season of Haunting of Hill House for Netflix
We all watched and were collectively terrified by the first season of Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. Well, good news! Netflix announced that the show will be a horror anthology series and continue with a brand new season. This week, they revealed plans for season two: The Haunting of Bly Manor will adapt Henry James’ classic ghost story, The Turn of the Screw. Have you read it? It’s a classic horror story about a young governess who moves to an old Victorian manor to care for two strangely distant and silent children. Read it while you wait for the new season of Haunting! Find out more about the Netflix announcement here.
2. The 2019 Book Oscars
Who’s excited to watch the 2019 Oscars? It airs this Sunday night, and while we’re all eager to see who takes home Best Picture, we also wish there could be something similar for books. So we went ahead and created the 2019 Book Oscars! Make sure you vote for your favourite books in categories like Best Male & Female Protagonist, Best Book, and Best Book-to-film Adaptation!
