Top Bookish News of The Past Week

Here are all of the top bookish stories, blog posts, pictures, and videos I found this past week. All of the titles are linked up to their respective articles/blog posts. Click away!


1. The third book title in the Divergent series has been announced! (I know you probably have already heard but obviously I needed to include this in my weekly news post.) Drum roll please..... Allegiant is the winner! Check out Veronica Roth's announcement video! It is very exciting. Now if only we didn't have to wait until October for the book to be released and we could get a synopsis and a book cover... Oh and don't ask me how I feel about this title because I can't decide, but feel free to tell me what you think below!

2. Are you a fan of The Walking Dead? If you are then you should check out this list of books that may help tide you over until the show comes back on. Some of them will surprise you, but make sense.

3. The American Library Association has posted which books were most frequently challenged in 2012. Some of these make sense (not that I think books should be banned) and some just made me go huh? What do you think? I mean... Captain Underpants was on the list. Ummmm okay? There were also some important books that I think teenagers should read that were on the list, such as The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, I know it gets a little racy, but it teaches a lot.


1. Octavia over at Read. Sleep. Repeat. has a great new post up this week, Stop and Chat Saturday! She discusses why she blogs and how she overcame the urge to care about the numbers. I've been there before and really enjoyed this honest post that I could easily relate to.

2. Parajunkee has another great Book Blogging 101 post up this week, focusing on Launching a MeMe or Feature. As always she provides great tips, and I have bookmarked this in case I ever decide to do this in the future.

3. Looking for a good contemporary romance? The Book Addict's Guide drew up a very eye catching and easy to follow guide to help you choose your next contemporary romance novel.


1. You have probably also already seen the amazing first teaser trailer of Catching Fire but I had to share it. It doesn't hurt to watch it again. (I am now even more excited for this movie...if that is even possible.)


1. Wide Awake by: Shelly Crane The Book Cafe wrote a wonderful review on Wide Awake, so good in fact that I immediately added it to my TBR pile. SOLD.

2. Dark Light by: S.L. Jennings I hadn't heard of this author or this series before, but after reading this review I can't help but be more curious. If you are a fan of magic then you should read this review.


  1. So excited for the next Hunger Games movie!

    And the subject of banned books is just so interesting to me -- glad you spotted that article in the NYTimes...I hadn't seen that specific one, but I did blog about the list earlier this week -- the more people who spread the word, the better if you ask me!

    1. I knew you loved talking about banned books! I don't know how I missed your post about this! I'm using feedly now as my blog reader and I swear I delete things on accident. lol

      I can't wait for Catching Fire! Too bad we have to wait forever.

  2. Thanks so much for including me in your post!!!! Glad you enjoyed it :)

    1. You are welcome!You for sure need to do more book suggestion charts! ;)

  3. I can't tell you how much this made my day! Thank you so much!!

    1. I'm so happy! I loved that post and how honest you were.

  4. Oo Parajunkee's post is helpful. I've been interested in starting a meme and/or feature but am still only in the initial phases. Thanks for sharing :)

    Nicole @ The Quiet Concert

    1. If you start a meme I'd totally participate. :)
