What Else I’ve Been Up To

A few new posts up on Tell-Tale TV.

I have posted my review of Orange is the New Black Season 4 Episode 10, “Bunny, Skull, Bunny, Skull.”

Pretty Little Liars is also on a strong streak this week. Season 7 Episode 4 “Hit and Run, Run, Run” was a pretty awesome episode.

Around the Blogosphere

Louise Jensen over @ Fabricating Fiction discusses “How a Book Review Changed My Life.”

Jenny in Neverland discusses: “What’s the Point of Book Reviews?” This is a much debated topic but Jenny discusses it really eloquently.

Readerly Geek talks about Funko Friday: Harry Potter and the Funko Pop Exchange. Anyone else love these little Funko figures. I cannot start a collection because they will take over my entire life!

Bookshelves and Paperbacks discusses Negative Reviews and Why You Shouldn’t Apologize for Them. This is a must-read this week! I really think that negative reviews are just as important as raves and being able to communicate why a book doesn’t work for you can help other readers.

Stephanie @ Stephanie’s Book Reviews write about her pet peeves about the book blogging community.

Storie for Coffee talks about Diverse Genres in New Adult Literature.

Other Points of Interest

James Surowiecki discusses the Sustainability of Pokemon Go’s Success for  The New Yorker. 

Catherine Scott talks about how the new Ghostbuster films soars despite the haze of nostalgia for B*tch Media! After all of the negative press about the all-female remake I am happy to see some positive press. Really, this remake is “ruining your childhood?”

BarkPost wrote this post a year ago about how dogs help tiny humans testify against bad people. This particular article spotlights a dog named Caber who helped a little girl testifying in a sexual assault trial.

The Washington Post reports that a robbery suspect kept a human brain beneath his porch, and used it to get high. That is among the crazier things I’ve heard of this week.

The Washington Post also presents us with a primer on “How to Eat Bread the Right Way.”

What have you been up to this week? Share links to your favorite stories or even the most bizarre news story you’ve read this weekend? I am really curious as to if anyone can beat the brain story.

    1. Thank you! I am trying really hard to post every single day with at least something, even it’s just some notes on a book I am dying to read. It helps when you have a lot of ideas and drafts to work from. I probably have a dozen tags I am working on slowly so that I can vary the books I feature.
