It’s Friday Savvy Readers, and that means it’s time for your weekly roundup of all things BOOKS and I have a fantastic list of literary happenings!

Featuring Amy Adams as the lead, 20th Century Fox’s film adaptation of A.J. Finn‘s bestselling thriller is set to premiere in theatres on May 15th, 2020 and we are SO excited! Described by Stephen King as “unputdownable”, The Women in the Window follows Anna Fox, a young woman suffering from agoraphobia. Afraid to leave her home, Anna spends most of her time watching old films and watching her neighbours for entertainment, until one night she sees what she thinks is a crime occurring across the street.

Described as Kevin’s best book yet—Nothing to See Here is a moving and uproarious novel about a woman who finds meaning in her life when she begins caring for two children with remarkable and disturbing abilities. Lillian and Madison were the unlikeliest of roommates at their elite boarding school: Madison, the daughter of a prominent Atlanta family, being groomed for greatness; Lillian, a scholarship student, plucked out of nowhere based solely on her intellect and athletic prowess. The two were as tight as could be, revelling in their unique weirdnesses, until Lillian had to leave the school unexpectedly. Years later, the two have lost touch, but Madison writes and begs Lillian for help. Her husband’s twin stepkids are moving in with them and she wants Lillian to be their caretaker. However, there’s a catch: the twins can spontaneously combust when they get agitated, flames igniting from their skin in a disturbing but beautiful way. Disbelieving at first but ultimately too intrigued by these strange children, Lillian agrees. And as they hunker down in the pool house, Lillian and the twins learn to trust each other—and stay cool—just as Madison’s family is bracing for a major announcement. It all seems impossible to manage, but Lillian soon accepts that she and the children need each other, urgently and fiercely. With a white-hot wit and a big, tender heart, Kevin Wilson has written a most unusual story of deep parental love that proves to be his best book yet. Get your sneak peek right here!
