Currently anticipating: Candidly Nicole

Earlier this year my sister told me about Nicole Richie’s web series on AOL, #Candidly Nicole, which started as an adaptation of her hilarious Twitter feed. If that sounds weird (and it kind of does), rest assured. It’s basically prompted but unscripted reality tidbits from her life as she embarks on new experiences.

Since finishing all of the episodes (in about two days) I’ve sporadically checked back to see when new episodes would post. What is happening now is even better. It’s a TV series!

It was hard to choose a single episode from the AOL series to give a little taste of the show, but this one is probably my favorite:

It premieres tonight on VH1!

Ooooh, Gone Girl.

I really liked the book. Well, I liked the first 95% of the book (like most people from the reviews I’ve seen), and the ending left me scratching my head. But knowing they changed the ending for the movie is making me SO excited to see it.

I will say, even though the ending is kinda wtf-inducing (so prepare yourself to probably throw your hands up and maybe the book with them), I do really recommend reading the book. It gets inside your head and keeps you guessing and guessing and is just a really… I wouldn’t say “fun” reading experience, but it definitely keeps you on your toes.

(If you haven’t already, check out the first trailer here.)

I am beyond — BEYOND — excited for the Starz adaptation of Outlander. I read the first four books of the series years ago and dreamed that someday there might be a movie. But a TV series? Be still my heart.

It premiers on August 9. And you can find me parked in front of my TV, squeeing and live-tweeting.
