Media that sparked joy in 2020

I think we can all agree that 2020 has basically been a garbage fire from start to finish, right? At this point, though, I don't want to talk about all that.

7 books that would make great musicals

We book-lovers talk a lot about adaptations, but we tend to mostly focus on movie and TV adaptations. While I love those as much as the next person, I think we are overlooking the underused potential of book-to-musical adaptations.
