We're beefing up our reading lists with Japanese and British award lists. Also it's fun to see what critically-acclaimed movies are hated by the authors whose books they are based on. Plus, we preview our June pick and have a few thoughts on the May pick!

I haven't tried Schitt's Creek, but I've really been enjoying Kim's Convenience. I'm almost caught up so I was planning to try Schitt's Creek next.
