    SMG's new show is busy casting, and it's looking interesting. Will anyone watch?

    I have read the book Elana K. Arnold’s book What Girls Are Made Of and it isn't a comedy by any stretch, so I wonder where this show is going with it. Anyone else read the book?

    I've not read the book I'm afraid. It doesn't especially appeal, it feels a bit too potentially twee, but is the original book was far from comedic it might be more gritty and interesting than I'm expecting. I would definitely have given it a chance anyway with SMG in it, so if the book was a good read I'm looking forward to it more.

      It's a YA novel and I only read it because SMG's name was attached to the project. I was very pleasantly surprised by how non twee it was. It's actually pretty feminist in outlook and I would highly recommend it. It is not a comedy at all, so I don't know how the tv show and the book are going to be similar.

        I haven't read the book but I will certainly give the series a try if SMG is in it. I was pleasantly surprised the article also mentioned Sometimes I Lie. It's the first time in more than a year I have seen it being mentioned. I guess there is hope they are actually filming it ...

          Hot Pink is filming now. If it gets picked up, I'll give it a try. Sometimes I Lie and Other People's Houses apparently might go later this year.

            I read Sometimes I Lie about two years ago and I quite liked it. It would certainly be interesting to see SMG in the main role.

              Would you recommend the book?

            Priceless Yes, I would. I don't remember all the details of the story, I guess I would have to read it again, if I would want to compare it to the series once it comes out. The book is full of twists and I just couldn't put it down. I had to know what would happen next. I know Gone Girl was pretty popular back then and the whole feel of the book is a bit similar to that one.
