Favourite Classic Films (in no particular order)
The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947), dir. Irving Reis

Susan’s growing pains are rapidly becoming a major disease.

I love this movie so much. When Shirley Temple envisions Cary Grant in the shining suit of armor it cracks me up every time. 

This movie is fantastic. Shirley is adorable.

This week’s diverse new releases:

Like No Other by Una LaMarche (Razorbill)

“Devorah is a Hasidic Jew, and her life is full of loving family, constant ritual, and avoiding outsiders. Jaxon is a smart, funny black teenager who has yet to see much success with girls. Both live in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, but it takes a stuck elevator during a hurricane for the two to share their first words. … LaMarche’s (Five Summers) characters are authentic and fully realized, and the dire consequences that threaten this clandestine romance make the novel read like a thriller.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Fire Wish by Amber Lough (Random House)

“In medieval times, during a war between the humans and jinni, sixteen-year-old Najwa lives below the world’s surface in the cavern of crystal, fire, and water, training to be a jinni who can spy on the humans living above them. But her first time above ground, she is enthralled by the beauty of the human world and intrigued by the human prince she sees in Baghdad’s palace. … Lough has created a lyrical story resounding with magic, love, and strife. … This first book in a series will hook young adult readers who grew up on tales of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights and is sure to entice others looking for a tale of romance and adventure.” — VOYA

“Turner attributes the hate Sansa got specifically during the first season, ostensibly because she was “weak” or “stupid,” to the fact that “people see their own faults in her character, and they don’t like facing their own weaknesses. I think if anyone was a 13-year-old girl put in her situation, they would probably act exactly the same. When I was younger, Maisie, who plays my sister, and I were in scenes together and people loved her character and they hated mine, and it really used to affect me.””
