Fans of "Big Little Lies" will want to pick up Liane Moriarty's latest offering, "Nine Perfect Strangers," which comes out today. The book is about -- you guessed it! -- nine perfect strangers who spend 10 days at a health resort together.

Meanwhile, Joanna Gaines of "Fixer Upper" fame is coming out with her new book, "Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave," which is chock full of advice on how to decorate your home in a way that reflects who you are.

Wednesday, Nov. 7

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" returns for season nine and we're prepared to see more drama than ever.

In "The Girl in the Spider's Web," Claire Foy takes over the role of computer hacker Lisbeth Salander from Rooney Mara, who played the part in the 2011 film, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Directed by Fede Álvarez, this is film represents a bit of a reboot, as Sverrir Gudnason now plays Salander's love interest, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, rather than Daniel Craig. It's rated R.

Chris Pine stars in "Outlaw King," a new R-rated film from Netflix about 14th century Scottish King Robert the Bruce. Amid English oppression, it's Bruce that must step up to save his country.

If that is a little too violent, take the kids to the theater and see the classic Dr. Seuss tale, "The Grinch," which is rated PG. Benedict Cumberbatch is The Grinch in this playful animated film, which stars Rashida Jones and Angela Lansbury.

The Duplass brothers' new show, "Room 104," premieres on HBO at 11:30 p.m. PT, and focuses on every guest who stays in a specific hotel room. (Hint: Everyone is quirky.)

A fan of the dramedy "Patriot," the series about an intelligence officer who has a hobby writing folk songs? You're in luck: it returns to Amazon for season two!

There's also a wide array of new albums available today, including collections from Hanson, Jeff Goldblum, Muse and the late Lil' Peep.
