Happy July!


  • At Criterion: Coming Attractions: The Criterion Channel’s July 2019 Lineup. I’m not sure if subscribing to the Criterion Channel exacerbated my Reading Slump or got me interested in stories and writing again—either way, I continue to be ALL ABOUT IT.

  • At Tor: Kat Cho Recommends Korean Dramas for YA Readers. “There are so many overlapping themes and tropes: there are sometimes love triangles in both YA and K-dramas, plots where characters fake a relationship (that blooms into a real one), blackmail and sharing secrets, and, of course, all the angst!“

  • At Variety: ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ Gets Reboot by PBS, Viacom’s Channel 5. I fully admit that my kneejerk reaction to this news was WHAT NO WHY… but then I sat myself down and was like LEILA. STOP BEING A JACKASS. A NEW VERSION DOES NOT ERASE THE OLD VERSION. ALSO THE PACING AND CONVENTIONS OF 70s-ERA BRITISH TELEVISION IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. ALSO ALSO THESE ARE GREAT STORIES AND A NEW ADAPTATION WILL BRING THE JOY TO AN ENTIRELY NEW AUDIENCE. So, you know: Here for it.
