The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook!  This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism. 

This week’s recommended discussion:  In a spin on the semi-regular topic of adaptations, construct your own dream adaptation.  Which actors or directors do you want to see tackle the adaptation of a particular book, character, or series? 
(hat tip to Antononymous)

Because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone.  The OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread. Images related to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
6/9:  read in order to avoid spoilers (h/t MisterSplendiferous)
6/16:  the definition of insanity
6/23:  deal breakers
6/30:  overshadowed
