No need to bury the lede here. Mississippi teen Eagan Tilghman put his 3-year-old brother to excellent use by dressing him as a miniature Pennywise from It. The results are…my god, they’re startling.

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY!?

For many of us, Animal Farm was a book that most of read in High School (or pretended to, at least). The novel by esteemed author George Orwell is considered a cult classic and a staple in modern-day literature. The chance to revisit the unique tale is coming quickly because the Orwell estate has officially given the greenlight for an accurate videogame adaptation.

George Orwell’s Animal Farm is being made into a video game.

“Game of Thrones” fans have grown so impatient for George R.R. Martin to finish the next “A Song of Ice And Fire” book – the series that the HBO show is based on – that an artificial intelligence system just wrote the beginning of the sixth book.

Winter is kind of here.

Turtles All The Way Down opens in a high school cafeteria, where our protagonist Aza sits anxiously, stuck in the middle of a thought spiral. “Admittedly, I have some anxiety problems, but I would argue it isn’t irrational to be concerned about the fact that you’re a skin-encased bacterial colony,” she says.

John Green read the first chapter of Turtles All the Way Down.

    1. I tend to not judge a book by its first chapter (mainly because my all-time favorite book of ever, To Kill a Mockingbird, has a boring first chapter), but I didn’t get much from this preview. Maybe it’s because I listened to it when the house was raucous. But I’m not worried! I’m still very much looking forward to JG’s come back. What did you think about it?

      1. Same here – I enjoyed the beginning and it certainly made me curious about the rest of the book. I’m trying not to judge by a first chapter either 🙂
