Top Bookish News of The Past Week

I'm back after a very hectic week of moving! I'm really hoping to have a whole bunch of posts for you this week. So let's start with my usual Sunday bookish news post. :)

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 always carry a book with me in my purse and I even usually try to keep one in my car for back up. You just never know when you are going to be bored and need something to read. Look over Epic Reads' funny list of places you go where you should really bring a book with you.

Get ready all of you Outlander by Diana Gabaldon fans! Starz is turning Outlander into a television series. I don't get Starz but I'm more than willing to figure out a way to watch this one.

Read NPR's book news pile up this week. It's pretty sad when a school reading list given to students is full of typos. Sigh. 

J.K. Rowling has a new book coming out! That's right folks, she was writing under the name Robert Galbraith. The book sounds interesting and it is on netgalley. 


Writer of Wrongs introduced a new feature on her blog, Baking the Books. It is a really cute idea and this week she shares a recipe for Butterbeer Cupcakes!

Read Jamie's hilarious, interesting, and true post about how her life of being married to a non-reader works out just fine in many ways. 

Do you ever get nervous that your blog will be deleted?! Well you may want to start thinking about this becoming a problem after reading Parajunkee's post on how Goggle can delete your blog. I'm not overly worried because I download/backup my blog once a month. I do hope to one day move up in the blogger world and get my very own paid for website, but I don't think that will be happening soon. On a happier note, I have a very very small number of posts on my blog that Parajunkee talks about as being a red flag so I think I will be good for now. *fingers crossed*

Bookish Treasures has a great reading list for those of you looking for New Adult novels that are unique and stray away from the norm.


Breaking Down the Apple E-Books Court Ruling


  1. That JK Rowling book is actually out already! I was so surprised when I found out. I think I might try to order it from Book Depository though becuase the UK cover is so much better than the US one.

    And that whole thing about Google deleting blogs was an excellent reminder to back up my blog, since I've never done it before! (very bad, I know)

    1. Well I better get reading and get a copy of it asap. lol :)

      I just started backing up my blog like a couple of months ago. Now I try to do it once a month just because I know if my blog ever did get deleted I would be heart broken.

      Oh and Outlander into a television show will be interesting. I just hope they don't mess it up too much like HBO did with True Blood.

  2. ahahah that list by Epic Reads!!! I always always have a book on me or readily available no matter where I am going and I am the QUEEN of multitasking. If there is a task that I can do while reading, you best bet I have a book in my hand. I have also been known to read even in situations when I probably should be social instead. My friends are used to it by now.

    Also, thanks for posing that video! Interesting update!

    Welcome back :D

    1. Hahaha. Being social is overrated sometimes. ;) I am also a little jealous that you can multitask so well, sadly I'm not great at it, but I still try.

      Thanks! It's good to be back. I haven't been fulling blogging for like the past two-three weeks and I missed it.
