Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

You should read this book if you like: Fiction, Big Little Lies, health resorts, wickedly smart writing, people who seem to have all the answers, rebooting your life

About: Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine perfect strangers are about to find out...

Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart, and an exquisitely painful paper cut. She’s immediately intrigued by her fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner/director of Tranquillum House. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer – or should she run while she still can?

It’s not long before every guest at Tranquillum House is asking exactly the same question.

Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.

Jason Blum booed and physically removed from the stage after making anti Trump remarks

Blumhouse producer Jason Blum who has had success recently with successful horror films such as Get Out and the Halloween sequel, was being honored at L.A.'s Israel Film Festival for a Achievement in Film & Television Award.

“Tonight we have much to celebrate with the opening of the 32nd Israeli Film Festival but at the same time today Americans went to the polls to exercise our right to vote, I have been quietly checking my phone and we’re doing pretty well. The election results are pouring in as I speak and a lot is on the line,” said Blum, to which several audience members quipped “depends for who.”

“A lot is on the line, the last two years have been hard for all of us who cherish the freedom as citizens of this country,” Blum continued, immediately prompting boos directed at him.

“The great thing about this country is that you can like Trump, but I don’t have to, and I can say what I feel about it -- and I don’t like it!”, he responded as a few people started walking out of the Saban theater at the Steve Tisch Cinema Center in Beverly Hills.

“As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse,” Blum continued. “We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, anti-semitism is on the rise.”

As Blum continued to speak, a man approached the stage and aggressively pulled Blum down. The person was identified as Yossi Dina, an Israeli pawnbroker who starred in a reality show called Beverly Hills Pawn.

More people rushed to interfere and Blum was asked to leave the stage as dozens left the auditorium in protest.

Blum was recently in the news for some comments regarding female directors for which he apologized stating "Blumhouse has not done a good enough job working with female directors" after being called out by social media.

Selena Gomez has left rehab

Upon her release, Gomez will still check in with professionals since her “health battle is ongoing.” She will also take a little time to relax says a close source.


ONTD Original: thank u, next (shade of brown)

Recently Twitter has been calling out white Instagram models for playing up the "racially ambigious" role. They darken their skin, overline their lips and change their hair to look like women of color. Here are some offenders:

We can also see this phenomenon in the Entertainment industry with Ariana Grande, The Kardashians and Jesy Nelson from Little Mix, being the most notable cases. One can't help but wonder how much money these women spend on spray tan and if they stain all of their clothes and sheets.

Andrew Lincoln Didn't Like The “B-Movie Gorefest” of Glenn's Death On The Walking Dead

image host

Andrew Lincoln expressed his dislike to The New York Times about the way Steven Yeun's character, Glenn Rhee, got killed in the season 7 premiere of The Waling Dead. Glenn got killed by being beaten to death by a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, eventually leaving his head looking like oatmeal and his eyeball popped out of his skull. A lot of fans called it torture porn and that the show went too far. Here's what Andrew had to say about it:

“I regret the manner in which it happened. We’ve been able to terrify people in film for 100 years without having to show an eyeball. When that happens, it diminishes what we’re trying to make, which in my mind’s eye is a family drama set in hell. It’s not a sort of B-movie gorefest.”

“It is from time to time, with the zombies and the action sequences. I don’t discredit that. It’s part of the thrills and spills of the show. But when we’re dealing with losing somebody — and a very brutal, human kind of death — I think it’s just taste. My taste is, I think it would be more disturbing just keeping the camera on Maggie’s face. And maybe that’s why I want to direct, because I want to make what I’ve been filming in my head.”


I'm glad Andy thought it was tasteless too.

Notable Republicans mock Taylor Swift after she fails to help the Tennessee Democrat win

Taylor in the past few weeks has been actively motivating her fanbase and young people to get out the vote and register for the midterm election. Swift threw her support behind Tennessee democrat Phil Bredesen for Senate but alas, he lost to Marsha Blackburn.

Republican talking heads being the mature individuals they are mocked her for the loss.

It isn't a total loss though, voting numbers did surge in thanks to Taylor and her efforts.

Do you think big celebrity endorsements as a whole are hurting the Democratic party more than helping?

TV - Person of Interest

Claes Bang joins the final season of The Affair

[Behind a cut because just his character description is kind of a big spoiler tbh]- He's playing Sasha Mann, a "charismatic, A-list movie star"

- "As Helen's love interest this year, Sasha's minimalistic lifestyle and objectivist way of thinking will influence how she lives her own life in the wake of a personal loss" (so uh...I guess that means Vik dies??? Then what was the point of dragging out his story and of having Sierra be pregnant with his baby?? and good God the last thing these selfish characters need is an Objectivist hanging around lmao)
- He was in The Square and The Girl in the Spider's Web and a bunch of other stuff

- It's the final season; obviously Ruth Wilson's not coming back and Joshua Jackson isn't a series regular, but possibly a guest star

This is nearing Gilmore Girls S7 levels of 'what's the point.'
