Lydia Deets is one of my favorite apathetic characters ever. Having watched Beetlejuice many times in my childhood, I like to think that her general negative attitude toward everything rubbed off on me. I can only my children grow up with the same pessimistic outlook. Anyway, Lydia finds herself stuck in Connecticut with her frantic mother and simple father. Little do they know, their new home is where the ghosts of Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis live, isn’t that fun? Lydia forms a relationship with them and has various misadventures in the netherworld where she runs into Beetlejuice. I’m a little hazy on the details but there are sandworms and witch doctors and almost a wedding. Also, the cartoon version was great.

The Talented Mr. Ripley tells the tale of a man who becomes obsessed with wealth, power and his friend. The book begins in New York, where down-on-his-luck Tom Ripley is approached by the wealthy Mr. Greenleaf to help him find his son, Dickie. Tom, an acquaintance of Dickie agrees to help. He soon finds himself in London forming a friendship with Dickie and his girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth starts to resent their friendship and founds a blog called Goop. Tom becomes more obsessed by the day—imitating Dickie and his lifestyle. Sensing Dickie is tiring of him and his antics, Tom murders Dickie while on vacation and assumes his identity. Gwyneth, having now successfully written a cookbook, turns her attention finding her lost boyfriend. Along with Mr. Greenleaf and a detective they catch up with Tom. The truth is nearly exposed, but some convenient assumptions exonerate Tom. He escapes his crime and is free to live his life, followed by the fear of capture and the guilt of murder. Murder most foul.
