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. I put this post up every Sunday so come back again next week for more bookish awesomeness.
Click away and enjoy your Sunday!

I didn't have a bookish news post last week due to the fact that I was in Vegas on vacation. Don't worry though, I'm back and have brought you a ton of goodies this week!!


Have you heard of the website moviepilot? If not you should check it out. It has a whole section with updated news on book to movie adaptions.

USA Today
Okay guys, this is my favorite bookish news this week, besides the trailers below of course. Adults are getting a celebrity coloring book full of sexy male celebs. I wonder how much they are going to charge for that. I'm not even sure I have words for this little piece of news, except laughter. The best part, it's called "Color Me Swoon." I'm thinking teens may find this to be awesome.

Want a sneak peak of Allegiant by Veronica Roth? I know you do!

Travelodge has recently released a list of books left behind in its UK franchises. I'm actually sad so many people leave behind books in their hotel rooms, but then again maybe the person who finds it will enjoy the book and it really does spread the book joy. Or maybe the book was just crap.

They are going to add "twerking" to the Oxford Dictionary. I'm not sure I have words for this and I didn't even know what this was until I watched the VMAs, which I am trying to block out. (Except for the very short yet amazing Nsync reunion.)

If you want a good laugh read 20 of The Biggest Dick Moves in Literature. This article is so true.

There is a new feature over at Bookish Comforts, Piece of Cake. This week Bookish Comforts offers great advice on how not to receive those pesky gmail emails saying you received a new comment on your blog when in fact it is only your own that you just posted. I have yet to change this in my email but I plan to thanks to Bookish Comforts.

There are many times when I read a book that is getting a ton of positive feedback and a lot of attention and I just don't like it. I tend to wonder if something is wrong with me. Luckily I discovered that I am not alone, Reading the Best of the Best has a great post up this week that discusses this.

I really enjoyed Bookish Treasures' post on what she thinks authors should do when writing review requests. What frustrates me the most is not getting addressed by my name or blog title but just as blogger. Or when the requester obviously hasn't read my review policy and sends me a book in a genre I don't review.

Noteworthy blogger tips and advice can be found over at Coffee and Characters. It's a short little post but really worth the read.

Want to spice things up on the blog or just enjoy doing surveys? Here is another cool one this week, The Random # Survey.

The Divergent trailer is here!! I'm beyond excited.

The Book Theif trailer is here!! It looks good. Although the best part of the book for me was death's narration and I don't know what they are going to do with that in the movie.


  1. I am awaiting for the release of movie Fifty shades of grey...Soon....
    Awesome book By E L James and characters played very well ...
    the movie fifty shades of grey

  2. OMG this is another mother of all bookish news posts!(did that make any sense?). Lately I've been wondering to myself how I was going to keep up to date on all the book to movie adaptations. It's like you are tuned in to my needs and offer up moviepilot on a silver platter. How kind of you! :D. And what's even weirder timing is that NOT FIVE MINUTES AGO, I just learned what twerking was (and had to ask if I am really already out of touch with what the "kids" are doing these days - I didn't graduate THAT long ago *sigh*). By the way, I learned about twerking because someone sent me a youtube video - worst twerk fail ever- girl catches fire. I think that's what it was called - look it up. I have lost faith in humanity. Moving on, I went to see TMI in theaters and they showed the preview for The Book Thief and I thought it looked sooooooooooo good. And really well done from what I can tell. I am curious to see how they will include Death (I am prepared that they will opt not to). Also - Divergent movie looks pretty good too! Seriously, this was a loaded week of goodness. And this concludes yet another novel that is filled with plenty of grammatical errors I hope your eyes aren't burning (I don't feel like editing it hah)

    1. OMG, MoviePilot is my favorite!!! :) I'm so glad you found it useful.

      I'm really glad I'm not the only one that is young and didn't know what twerking was. I just watched the video and I too have now lost faith in humanity. WTF? *shakes head

      My eyes definitely aren't burning, I love your long rambling comments. They are my favorite! I had a great time putting up this big bookish news post so I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

    2. AHHH THE TWERK VIDEO WAS A PRANK BY JIMMY KIMMEL. I feel a little better knowing that a girl didn't actually catch fire being an idiot.
