From origins in comic books to a television show and back to the printed word, everything comes full circle in this list of "Riverdale" read-alikes. Inspired by characters from the Archie Comics universe, the CW’s "Riverdale" has a strong fan following. Its grim, nostalgic style reflects common themes in both young adult and adult fiction.
I love Christmas. Last year I made a Christmas list (pun intended) called Scary Christmas to All which covered holiday ghosts, murder and, um, werewolves. I decided to do another reading list this year, but to focus on the funny and/or absurd side of the holidays instead. Family can be stressful. Escape, and come with me to the dark side.
