Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds: The First Official Stranger Things Novel 

A mysterious lab. A sinister scientist. A secret history. If you think you know the truth behind Eleven’s mother, prepare to have your mind turned Upside Down in this thrilling prequel to the hit show Stranger Things.

It’s the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America, both at home and abroad. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn’t be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the incendiary protests in Washington.

But the world is changing, and Terry isn’t content to watch from the sidelines. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. Unmarked vans, a remote lab deep in the woods, mind-altering substances administered by tight-lipped researchers . . . and a mystery the young and restless Terry is determined to uncover.

But behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory—and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr. Martin Brenner—lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined. To face it, she’ll need the help of her fellow test subjects, including one so mysterious the world doesn’t know she exists—a young girl with unexplainable superhuman powers and a number instead of a name: 008.

Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war—one where the human mind is the battlefield.

Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds: The first Official Stranger Things Novel by Gwenda Bond will be released on February 5, 2019 and can be ordered HERE.

Watch Marvel’s The Punisher Season 2 Trailer

Marvel and Netflix have released the full trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher Season 2, which sees Frank Castle hitting the road as he tries to move on from his past. However, Frank can’t leave the vest behind when trouble finds him, bringing him back to his old life with a new mission and a sidekick he never asked for.

Former Marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.

In the first season of The Punisher, Castle was seemingly free to resume his life without fear of prosecution, thanks to a Presidential pardon. We don’t know what will cause Castle to reclaim his Punisher persona, but it likely has something to do with Billy Russo’s return as Jigsaw — complete with a new mask. Amber Rose Revah’s Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore’s Curtis Hoyle are the only other cast members officially returning from the show’s first season.

Annette O’Toole and Corbin Bernsen are also joining the show as Eliza and Anderson Schultz, respectively. Giorgia Whigham will portray Amy Bendix, with Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, and Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.

The Punisher Season 2 will launch on Netflix on January 18, 2019.

The diminutive Japanese “Tidy Guru” released her best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up in 2014, which professed, among other things, one simple rule for people looking to clean up their homes: hold each item, and keep only the things that spark joy.

On the show which is streaming now, Marie visits a variety of families, including a couple with a baby on the way, a family who had to downsize homes, and a woman who lost her husband and is struggling to let go of his things.

Watch Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 2 Trailer

Marvel just released a trailer for the show’s second season, which will be available on Netflix starting January 18. The trailer shows the similarities between Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) and Jigsaw (Ben Barnes), as their inner monologues drive them to two very different extremes. In the end, Castle wants to don his Punisher garb and be the person he believes he was always “meant to be.”

In the first season of The Punisher, Castle was seemingly free to resume his life without fear of prosecution, thanks to a Presidential pardon. We don’t know what will cause Castle to reclaim his Punisher persona, but it likely has something to do with Billy Russo’s return as Jigsaw — complete with a new mask. Amber Rose Revah’s Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore’s Curtis Hoyle are the only other cast members officially returning from the show’s first season.

Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) can run but he can’t hide from who he’s meant to be. Season two finds Frank in all too familiar territory. With Castle’s former brother-in-arms Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) slowly beginning to heal from the traumatic brain injury Frank inflicted on him, it’s only a matter of time before Billy starts to put the pieces of the puzzle back together.

Annette O’Toole and Corbin Bernsen are also joining the show as Eliza and Anderson Schultz, respectively. Giorgia Whigham will portray Amy Bendix, with Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, and Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim.
