On the latest Geek Girl Riot we share what we’re watching, then we chat to Booksmart stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein. We also give you some new YA reading recs!

Hey you! You gotta see this!
Sherin and Alex spend a lot of their time as critics watching all the new TV and movies coming out so they can report back to you. They talk what they’re loving and what has caught their attention—including Euphoria, Men In Black: International, L.A.’s Finest, and a whole lot more.

In the Chat Lounge with Booksmart’s Kaitlyn Dever + Beanie Feldstein
Booksmart is the coming-of-age comedy that will steal your heart. Sherin sat down with the film’s two leading ladies Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, who play best friends Amy and Molly, to get you hyped for Booksmart. They break down their characters, what it was like working with such an incredible female-driven script, and their friendship offscreen and on.
