Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016)

Sweetie dahlings! Eddy and Patsy are back and they've brought the whole family, including little Lola. Last time we saw Eddy's granddaughter, she was a baby. The teen has grown up to be a little Eddy in training, which is a big help to our heroines while they're on the run after killing international supermodel Kate Moss. The girls have barely slowed down, although they've now reached senior citizen status. They're still partying all night and trying to land rich, eligible bachelors so they can live out their twilight years in the splendor to which they're accustomed.

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

The first novel in Caine’s new series, called The Great Library, starts out with some lovely world building. Set in the not-so-distant future, the premise is that the ancient Library at Alexandria was never destroyed and grew to be the most powerful - and oppressive - force in the world. In this world, personal ownership of books is illegal. So when book smuggler Jess Brightwell becomes a Librarian, things get a bit awkward with his family.

Morning Phase by Beck

One of the reasons Beck is beloved by critics is that he doesn't just put out warmed over versions of his "sound;" although, his music is certainly identifiable.  Morning Phase is recognizably Beck, but the more atmospheric, reflective Beck. Almost every one of his albums has had a song on it that I've loved instantly and forever and this album is no exception. In this case that song is "Heart is a Drum." That's not to say that there is only one good song, there are many: "Say Goodbye", "Blue Moon", "Morning" and "Blackbird Chain" among the best.

Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman

A debut novel about a dissolute artist, Thomas Bayber, and his relationship with two sisters, Natalie and Alice Kessler. This is a fascinating art history story and also a satisfying chronicle of the central character’s family histories. The story takes place over three time periods, 1963, when the teenage sisters first meet and become infatuated with the older artist; 1972, when Thomas has a brief affair with Alice and she becomes pregnant; and 2007 when the now famous artist is dying.
