This week, we have some of your feedback on comfort reads, and Kate and Rob head to the cinema to see Fantastic Beasts and A Monster Calls.
We love books based on and inspired by films, so we didn’t want to miss Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, set in J. K Rowling’s Wizarding World. Also, we were lucky enough to be invited to an early preview screening of A Monster Calls, the film adaptation of the book by Patrick Ness. This was itself based on an idea by the writer Siobhan Dowd, who sadly passed away before she was able to write the book herself. We tell you about what we thought of both films, avoiding any spoilers, so you can enough both for yourself.
Fantastic Beasts is out now, and A Monster Calls is out in January 2017.
