What Else I’ve Been Up To
I have some very exciting news. Last week I posted a Waiting on Wednesday for Replica by Lauren Oliver. This week my local independent bookseller got a copy and now I get to read the ARC. I am so excited for this.
In addition, I have four new posts at Tell-Tale TV this week. The most exciting of which is an interview I did with Kara Royster from Pretty Little Liars. Kara played Yvonne, Toby’s fiance, in the current season. Go check it out, this girl is insanely talented and definitely one to watch.
My coverage of Pretty Little Liars also continued this week. This week’s episode was called “Along Comes Mary” and it includes a meeting of two very devious minds.
And two new Orange is the New Black episodes are covered this week as well. I reviewed episodes 11 and 12 this morning. “People Persons” involves an inquisition at Litchfield Federal.
And then I cried my eyes out when I reviewed “The Animals.” Why Orange is the New Black? Why?
Around the Blogosphere
Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense wrote a beautiful exposition about Ginny Weasley. It’s a great reading of Ginny.
Jananee @ Head in Her Books wrote about The Strand, a really big independent bookstore in New York City. It’s a really beautiful and big book store. I was only aware of it once i started college and it is overwhelming.
Ashleigh @ A Frolic Through Fiction makes an argument about why you should carry a book everywhere you go. In the title of her post, she says that this is only a few of the reason to carry a book everywhere, but the list is still very entertaining.
The Green Onion posted an illuminating and enlightened essay called ‘The Worlds Readers Live.’ Reminds me a little bit of Rory Gilmore’s valedictorian speech in The Gilmore Girls.
Jenny in Neverland discusses book trends she would like to see more and less of. I agree with every single point on this list.
Around the Internet
San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) has been in full swing this week and with it is a lot of new trailers. Some highlights include a Sizzle Reel and Season 4 Teaser for The 100, a Blindspot Season 2 Trailer, plus digging into some footage of American Gods.
SDCC also hosted a panel on the film version of Batman: The Killing Joke, which sparked anger in the audience. For anyone who isn’t familiar with Barbara Gordon, take a look at this history of the influential comic book character and then read this article. See if you agree.
On a related note, B*tch Media talked about ways to make better, stronger female characters. This article brings up Jessica Jones, and the latest season of Game of Thrones.
Bust reported that Zara ripped off an independent artist and then insulted her. This time it’s Tuesday Bassen who’s artwork and pins depict colorful graphic depictions of things like heart lollipops and a diary with a lock on it.
BuzzFeed mixes the new Pokemon Go trend with book titles! Has the internet gone too far? Punny yes, but really? Really?
A shelter dog took some very derpy photos and then got adopted! Well, that’s a story with a happy ending that I can get behind! I mean, look at dat face!
Need a bookish game for a bookish themed party? Consider playing ‘The Book Game.’ This game sounds like a really awesome way to grow your TBR pile. (Okay, maybe that is also kind of dangerous!) Rules can be found at The Reading Room.
That’s what caught my interest this week. What have you been up to this week? Anything you saw this week that I should check out?
