Life During Wartime – Great Escape – Medium
“The moment of writing is a moment of isolation,” he explains. “You’re encaging yourself, you’re putting up your own borders, and believe me, you cannot write about things if you don’t escape from them, especially when you write about conflict. You have to detach yourself from the reality… Distancing yourself was a process of making sure that you were there. I was there, so this means I survived.”

The Fault in Our Stars - Wikipedia
The Fault in Our Stars, published in January 2012, is the sixth novel by author John Green. The title is inspired by Act 1, Scene 2 of Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, in which the nobleman Cassius says to Brutus: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings." The story is narrated by Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl with cancer. Hazel is forced by her parents to attend a support group where she subsequently meets and falls in love with 17-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player and amputee.

Serial Box creates books for the age of Peak TV - Vox
Bookburners was one of the first works published by Serial Box, a service that aims to become the HBO of serialized fiction; I was reading a novel/TV show hybrid, a book that was designed to read like a season of television. Its very existence displayed a major reversal of how we’ve traditionally thought about these two media: TV once aspired to be called “novelistic,” but now, in an age in which TV is increasingly described as “better than books,” here was a book built to act like a TV show.

An Ode to the Romance Novel (Feat. Lindsay Ellis) | It's Lit! - YouTube
(This is actually a pretty good recap of romance novels—including some recommendations for LGBT romance novels.)
“The romance novel has been the subject of intrigue, derision, and shame in literary discourse long before the modern genre as we know it today existed. Romance novels are relegated to your Aunt Muriel’s bathroom, thrift store book sections, and that one aisle in Barnes and Noble that you pretend to walk through because you got ‘lost’ looking for cookbooks. But it deserves a closer look than that - it is after all the highest grossing of all literary genres, out-selling its next nearest competitor twice over.”
