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.  Click away!


1. Jason Segel is going to write a middle-grade book series. Hmmm.... I'm intrigued. The series is called Nightmares! I love Jason Segel, I wonder if he can write well?

2. The last Sookie book, #13, comes out May 7! I'm a long time fan of this series, and even though I'm sad to see it go I think it's time to wrap it up. Check out this interview with Charlaine Harris! She talks about the series coming to a close, future books for her, and more. You really should read this. Apparently there is a short book coming out in October that ties up any loose ends about the minor characters in the Sookie Stackhouse series that are not mentioned in the final book.

3. Last October I was lucky enough to go to Universal Studios in Orlando Florida for my honeymoon to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was AMAZING! I have some great news for those on the west coast... Harry Potter World is coming to Hollywood!

4. Amazon has released its list of the most well-read cities in America! It's always interesting to see these kinds of statistics. 

5. Graceling by Kristen Cashore a movie? Yes please. 

1. Check out this awesome movie review of Jurassic Park 3-D from Foil the Plot! 

2. This hilarious and oh so true blog post about lending out our precious books will make you laugh and nod along in agreement. GillyB at Writer of Wrongs always knows how to write a laugh out loud funny post about relevant bookish issues. Are you brave and lend out your books?

3. Who here hates it when someone interrupts them while reading, especially if you are at the climax of the story? I'm guilty of this. I am NOT a fan of people that don't seem to care that I'm reading and busy and obviously not wanting to talk at the moment and still interrupt me. The blog Characterized has a great post up about her pet peeves when she is reading. You have got to read this for a good discussion and some laughs.

4. Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer has some great things to say about being a cover whore. I know I can be a pretty bad one. When I go into a bookstore gravity somehow automatically pulls me toward all the pretty covers, especially ones with pretty blues or that are shiny. Are you a cover whore?

Our first sneak peak at Tris from the Divergent movie! LOVE!

    1. You are welcome! I loved all of these discussion posts this week. I laughed so hard. :) Thanks! I can't wait for the Divergent movie!!!

  3. Congrats on the blogger spotlight! Will definitely be checking out the book lending post and the cover whore post :)

    1. Thanks! I think you will find those posts hilarious!

  4. Ahhh, Sookie Stackhouse. As much as I enjoyed the series, I'm kinda glad to see it all end. I felt like Harris sort of dragged it on for a bit too long. I haven't read the most recent book but I def need to pick it up before the finale comes out. Do you watch True Blood? I'm curious as to what you think about the show.

    Also, thanks again for the mention! Jurassic Park = AAAAAAAMAZINGNESS. I think I'm slightly obsessed.

    1. Just a heads up, the last Sookie book wasn't all that great, but like you said the series has dragged on a little too long.

      I do watch the TV show, and it really sin't like the books at all. I enjoy the show, but sometimes they go a little crazy.

  5. CANNOT WAIT FOR THE GRACELING MOVIE. And apparently the tri-state area is not well read so I can't even try to claim proximity (oh well). And I usually stay away from celebrity books but maybe he'll surprise us and write something awesome! Thanks for the recap!! :)
