Happy New Year, dearest Pajibans! I hope you’re unhungovered, rested, and ready for 2020. It’s going to be a doozy. I’ve got a lot of links I’ve been saving for you. Tuck in.

Let’s kick it off with all the recent celebrity engagements. Wilmer Valderrama and model Amanda Pacheco definitely didn’t stage this engagement photo; Peter Facinelli got engaged to his girlfriend Lily Anne Harrison; Michelle Williams is now engaged to Thomas Kail, who directed her in Fosse/Verdon; Tiffay Trump is engaged; Angie Harmon got engaged; and Danielle Brooks of Orange is the New Black is also engaged. I saved the best for last, because this video with her now fiance is fan-tastic. If you haven’t seen it, jump to the 5:00 mark. You won’t regret it.

Lois Arquette wrote successful teen thrillers like I Know What You Did Last Summer under the name Lois Duncan until 1989, when her daughter was murdered. What followed was a twisted tale, with a potential police cover-up, a seedy criminal network, uncanny coincidences, and psychics — and a mother still trying to find answers. (Buzzfeed)

The twelfth Cannonball Read kicked off with Halb’s review of Path of Destruction (Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 1) by Drew Karpyshyn. "Personally, I found Bane’s story, inner monologue, and philosophy way more interesting than anything the vanilla Jedi have ever had to offer in the mainstream Star Wars stories." Apparently Darth Bane is getting the Disney+ treatment. Do you have a favorite Star Wars book? You can register for CBR12 and tell everyone about it. (Cannonball Read 12)
