The Bookish Report

Here are all of the top bookish stories, blog posts, pictures, and videos I found this past week. I put this post up every Sunday so come back again next week for more bookish awesomeness.

Click away and enjoy your Sunday!


I've decided to start this week's news post off with some wonderfully true laughs from Epic Reads.

I'm really hoping this 9-year-old will be able to put his free library back up. What a sweet kid.

I would never read Kendall and Kylie Jenner's young adult novel, even if they weren't the ones who wrote it.

These book dedications are a must read. I remember when I read The House of Hades dedication, it made me laugh, and the HP one made me cry.

Angry Robot's book imprints, Strange Chemistry and Exhibit A, will be discontinued. 

I'm sure you all remember the post (that I obviously don't agree with) about how adults shouldn't be reading young adult books that was posted on the internet not that long ago. The good news, this rebuttal post is exquisite.

I love planners and I love talking about organizing. I always want need all the planners. What about you?

I got lucky this week and found some awesome features on fellow book blogger sites. Literary Wanderings over at My Novel Opinion has a very unique one.

Another favorite that I'm not sure I have shared with you yet, but is a must read is Lite-Rate-Ture's Novel Beauty. It will make you smile. It will also really get you to stop and take a closer look at the book you are reading (if you haven't already) and enjoy all the hard work put into its design.


I may not understand why they split the last book into two movies, and I may not be a big fan of the third book, but this trailer...


  1. OMG I want to re-read Harry Potter now!

  2. Aww, those HP tumblrs actually made me cry. I mean after all this time? And really, I had never thought about why Snape hated Neville so much, but I guess it kinda makes sense, right?
    All those book dedications were so funny. I love when you find those funny, quircky or touching dedications - and also acknowledgements.
    I hadn't seen the Mockingjay video, must have totally missed out on that one. I don't understand why they split it up either, and why every franchise do it these days. It's not even that long.
    Thanks for sharing all this! :)

    1. It actually made me cry too! At first I just got teary eyed and then toward the end I was crying.
      Those dedications were the best!
      Just to make more money I guess. :/
      You are very welcome!

  3. Ahahah that was the first Epic Reads video I watched! So good!!

    What grinches in the city of Leawood, Kansas won't let a boy give free books out. My god, it's not like he's selling crack. I don't get it.

    I will never read Kendall and Kylie Jenner's book either.

    Omg there are legit tears streaming down my face from that Harry Potter link. OMG these books...

    Those dedications are AWESOME.

    (this bookish news is already stacked...)

    That list of 13 things you should be embarrassed to read is also great. #6... oh harry.

    That Novel Beauty feature is pretty!

    And I share your sentiments about Mockingjay exactly.

    This was one Epic Bookish News post Kay!!!

    1. I'm super glad you liked this one! It was extra fun compiling it this week.

      You should visit the epic reads website like once a week. They always have some great stuff on there!

      I really don't understand why that town won't let the kid have his free library. He isn't harming anyone, if anything he is making people happy/better. :)

      I legit cried while reading the HP article, and I really just added it to this week's bookish news so I wouldn't be the only one to have to go through that pain.

      I can't wait to see how Mockingjay part 1 plays out. We shall see.

  4. OH MY GOSH!!! ok THIS is the last comment I promise!
    LOVE this!
    all of it...
    all the links, the videos *sigh* ok ok I'll leave you a lone :)
