Sam’s Recommendation

Sam’s Recommendation

In a society where sexism and classism run rampant, women’s flaws which make them unfit for society and their husbands, can all be corrected with a simple trip to Paradise Hills.

Set as an elite relaxation centre, Paradise Hills subjects the girls to etiquette classes, vocal classes, beauty treatments, restricted diets, and unusual behaviour modification treatments, all with the promise when they leave Paradise Hills, they’ll be the perfect version of themselves. Soon after their arrival, they see rehabilitated girls leave to go live a perfect life, but seemingly too perfect to be real. Although initially angry, frustrated, and annoyed for being sent away, the girls’ fears intensify when they learn everything is not what it appears to be. The most real thing on the island is the girls’ need to escape Paradise Hills before it consumes them.

The film was nominated for the NEXT Innovator Award at Sundance Film Festival and stars: Emma Roberts, Awkwafina, Danielle MacDonald, Eiza Gonzales, and Milla Jovovich.

Teresa’s Review

eBook: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

Borrow this novel as an eBook on cloudLibrary

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened is a riotously funny and irreverent memoir about one woman’s experience with mental health and the stigma surrounding her personal journey.

Author Jenny Lawson recounts her life story starting with her childhood and going through the years to her adulthood. She takes no prisoners and unashamedly shares every detail of her upbringing, which is in equal turns horrifying and hilarious.

She boldly shares her difficulties with depression and mental health as well as her struggles with womanhood, having a family, and just about every other personal detail under the sun. I laughed at just about every sentence in this book, and could not put it down for the life of me. My family started questioning my sanity with how often I would laugh. And loudly at that! If you enjoy your humour a little on the TMI side with a dash of impertinence, you’ll probably have a fun time with this read. Also, there’s taxidermy. Let the good times (and the bad times) roll with Let’s Pretend This Never Happened!
