Bookish News of the Week #1 (August 26th, 2016)

Happy Saturday everyone! Hopefully, everyone has had a great week so far. :) Today I am posting my first Bookish News of the Week. It's not a meme but it is a post that I will hopefully be able to do every week or every other week. I thought I'd post about interesting or big news that has happened throughout the week. Maybe some of it will be news that you guys haven't seen or heard of yet. I found all of this info on Twitter too. :) Here goes nothing! Let me know if you like or if you have any big news of the week! 

*I'll try to post in order of the day info was released.*

- Rupert Grint and TV 

Rupert Grint will be starring in Snatch, a drama series based on the film by Guy Richie. Honestly not too sure what it's about other than it being inspired by a real-life London heist. There are a few articles around about it but I found my info on USA Today's website. 

- Netflix and Anne of Green Gables

I read Anne of Green Gables when I was younger and I remember liking it. Apparently, a TV adaptation will be produced by CBC and you'll be able to see it on Netflix sometime in 2017. The eight-episode drama will be called Anne.
