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!

Sorry I didn't have a Sunday post last week but I was celebrating my one year wedding anniversary! We had a great time.


Want to see something cute? 15 Types of Readers, As Told By Cats and Dogs

I honestly can't believe that 71% (I thought this number would be slightly smaller) of travelers prefer print books over e-books. I know this survey wasn't conducted in the states but still. I love print books over e-books but when it comes to traveling I would rather have an e-book.

Julianne Moore was cast as the Hunger Games President Coin. I think it will work. :)

J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. announced a new movie franchise that Rowling will be writing based on her book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!!!!!!  My mouth hung open when I read this in disbelief. I think this will be amazing! It may not feature Harry Potter but still. Pretty crazy news.

A librarian saved $1 Million to give back to libraries. I am astounded by this woman and I give her mad props and am saddened by hear death. It proves that there are still some amazing people out there. Libraries are important and a great and important part of the community.


You should really take a few minutes to read The Book Addict's Guide's blog post about making goodreads work for you. She made a fun infographic about how people use goodreads based off a survey she did, and who doesn't love a good infographic? Also, I found a couple of new things about goodreads that I love and didn't even know about before.

Sometimes it gets frustrating when young adult books don't swear but can talk about difficult problems. I'm not saying they need to be filled with curse words, but it makes it more believable when the 17-year-old characters drops a bad word when they are in a crazy situation. Lili's Reflections wrote an interesting post about this topic.

Do you ever get confused when trying to figure out what genre you are reading? Writer of Wrongs explains them pretty darn well.

I'm a pretty fast reader but not nearly fast enough. You should really check out The Fiction Conniption's post featuring speed reading.


About a month ago I finally got a new job after my husband and I moved! Although it is only part time, I was lucky enough to snag a job at my local library (yes, the one with the drive-up window) as a page. I'm loving it. As soon as I told my friend about this she sent me this picture so I had to share with you all. 


  1. HA, I could totally see how applicable that pic is (so funny!). And congrats on your 1 year wedding anniversary along with the cool new job. We missed you around the blogosphere!

    1. Thanks so much! :) I have been so erratic posting lately because of everything but I'm all good to go now.

  2. Squee! over J.K. Rowling's latest project! She'll make it great, I just know it.

    1. I'm really really excited!!!!! I can't wait to see how it plays out.

  3. Omg I love Buzzfeed. I waste all my time on that site haha. I think I am #1, #8, #11, #12 and #14 hahaha. And Brittany's post is great! I still haven't discovered everything Goodreads has to offer.

    Love the meme! So so true :)
