  • Beverly Jenkins Is Trailblazing Her Way onto Television (Book Riot) “Forbidden, the first novel in her Old West series, [has] been optioned by Sony Pictures Television in a first look deal via the Ripped Bodice partnership that was announced last year.” Jenkins writes wonderful historical romances featuring black and POC characters, and Forbidden is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to see this onscreen!

    My library did away with the fines too, and for the same reason. It makes sense.

    I’ll be doing the POPSUGAR challenge again in 2020, and I might join your Backlist Reader challenge again this year too! Though if I do, I think I want to keep it to only physical books I own prior to the start of 2020. I want to make a dent in my physical TBR shelf.
