Karen McManus is one of the biggest names in YA. Her debut book, One of Us is Lying, turned into an over-night bestseller. We were so excited when we heard that Peacock was turning it into a TV show. However, we’re always nervous that the TV show won’t stay true to the book. Below, check out the biggest differences between the book and the TV show.
Warning: Spoilers if you haven’t read or watched One of Us is Lying.

1. Love from Scratch by Kaitlyn Hill
Reese Camden can’t wait to start her dream marketing internship at a cooking channel in Seattle, Washington. If only she didn’t have to be around Benny Beneventi, the annoyingly charming culinary intern and her main competition for the fall job. Reese and Benny hope to avoid each other, until a work project leads them to becoming the cooking channel’s favorite ship. We received Love fromScratch from NetGalley and can’t wait to read this YA Romance set in the culinary world.
Camille Caldwell, NYC fashion blogger and college student, gets offered an amazing opportunity at her favorite magazine. Camille gets to all-expenses paid eco-trip to Costa Rica for a week. The only thing she has to is write about her experiences as soon as gets home and give up social media for the week. Camille has no idea what to expect since she has never travelled before, but she imagines herself lounging on the beach and looking fabulous.
*We received this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Crystal Donovan and her five best friends are all preparing for a tournament for MortalDusk, a videogame that could win them all a lot of money. But the Friday before the weekend tournament, Crystal gets a message from an anonymous person from a messenger app stating that they have her sister Caelyn and if Crystal doesn’t do exactly what they say, Caelyn will get killed.
Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate this time of year, we decided to reread one of our favorite series about witches: The Secret Circle by L.J. Smith. We read the original trilogy: The Initiation, The Captive and The Power. While we love the other three books: The Divide, The Hunt and The Temptation, they were actually written later by ghost writer Aubrey Clark. We decided to stick with the original books to get us into the Halloween spirit.
This is Halloween, everybody scream! We’ve mentioned before that we absolutely love this time of year. It’s perfect for picking up a spooky read while drinking apple cider. Christy enjoys everything about Halloween, especially reading books and watching movies to get into the spirit.
