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!


Like everyone else I'm sure you all have probably been in a reading slump at least once. If you are in one right now or for a future reference, read Publisher's Weekly's article 6 Ways to Beat Reader's Block

You NEED to read this article: 13 Clever Signs That Will Make You Want To Buy a Book.These are hilarious, fun, so true, and convincing, not that I need convincing.

Catching Fire came out in theaters this week! I can tell you that it is an amazing movie and even better than the first one. Have you seen it yet? What did you think? I had such a wide range of emotions while watching. Anyway, if you have seen the movie (Link Spoiler Alert) check out this list of the 12 big changes from page to screen in Catching Fire. 


If you are still looking for a secret Santa type gift exchange to participate in this year because you want to participate in more than one or you missed the deadline for the other one, there is still a chance to sign up for the The Belles' Enchanted Book Exchange.

Nicole over at The Quiet Concert wrote a very interesting post this week discussing whether she is being unfair to young adult books. There are many times that this idea has crossed my mind when reviewing a young adult book when I didn't like it as much because it was too juvenile, even though it is in fact a young adult book. Therefore, I have wondered if sometimes I'm too harsh when reviewing young adult books, but either way I'm probably going to keep reviewing like I have been. Do you think you are ever unfair to young adult books?

Parajunkee conducted a book blogger survey a little while ago and some of the results are in! I always love reading surveys for some reason. 


I do let a few select friends borrow books, but with a set of rules.


  1. Haha a great week of posts! Loved those signs - buzzfeed provides me with daily entertainment! I have to wait until this weekend to watch Catching Fire so I will be fangirling in T-minus 4 days. Me :) Thanks for the shout out! I am really glad you are enjoying these posts :) :) And thanks for reminding me about that Parajunkee's survey results are up! I filled it out and would probably have missed it. And love the ecard. I have rules when people borrow my books too. Like leave no evidence that you ever touched it. That's a big one haha

    1. You are going to love Catching Fire!!! Enjoy it my friend and then tweet about how awesome it awesome so I can fangirl with you.

      Oh and buzzfeed is kind of addicting.

  2. I didn't remember a lot of those Hunger Games differences because it's been awhile since I read the book. I like that they weren't really drastic and what they did change didn't ruin the story. Even if every detail wasn't quite right, I think they did an excellent job in keeping with the spirit and the essence of the book.

    1. I hadn't read the hunger games in so long that when I was going over that list I only noticed a few of them when watching the movie as well. I thought Catching Fire was better than the first one and I agree with you, they were did an excellent job at keeping with the essence of the book. I had so many emotions while watching Catching Fire, it was just soo good.
