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!


Have you ever lied about which book is your favorite? I'm guilty of this, but at least I don't do it anymore.

Do you want to find a way to stay off the internet when you are writing? Take a page from George R.R. Martin's playbook.

Check out Publisher's Weekly and Buzzfeed's summer reading lists.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is set to open in theaters on Nov. 18, 2016.

A new species has been named after HP characters, this is both interesting and gross.

We now have a cover for Blood of  Olympus! Although I love it, I'm a little sad that Percy isn't on it. :( That better not mean anything.

We all know books are better than movies and these ads show that perfectly.

I had never even heard of Kickstarter until the whole Veronica Mars thing. I don't even know what I think about it, but so far not great, (perhaps because I don't have any extra money to help support movies/projects that involve famous/rich people that do have money. Sorry, that was a little harsh, I know that isn't what Kickstarter is all about...), but apparently publishing companies are starting to grow on Kickstarter.

Blog Posts

If you listen to audiobooks then you should take a second to head over to Parajunkee and vote/nominate your favorite audiobooks for the Sultry Listeners Award.

You know that moment when you are hardcore fangirling over a book and then you read a review that didn't love it, or perhaps you recommend a book to someone and they don't like it? Kimba speaks out about this topic perfectly, and with gifs!

I have yet to do so, but if you are looking for some instructions on how to make a grab blog button then this post is for you.  

Because you can never have too many book recommendations check out The Book Addict's Guide to Crossover Books.


What happened to my beloved childhood book? It looks kind of funny BUT...



  1. I love that why we lie about our favorite books post & the one about reading negative reviews of books we've loved!

    1. It's so hard to read negative reviews of books we love, especially by friends, but at the same time I respect everyone's own opinion and I love a good discussion!

  2. I wish you hadn't lured me to look at that new species with HP because I might have nightmares tonight. I HATE insects. Thank god it wasn't a spider or else I'd probably be hyperventilating right now.

    I think those ads of books turned into dvds are PERFECT. So much of what makes a book magical gets lots when you make the movie :(

    And I don't really know how I feel about Kickstarter either...

    I had no idea you were reading A Mad Wicked Folly! I hope you love it. I bought it a month or so ago but need to squeeze it into my reading schedule.I just started On The Fence though.

    1. If it was a spider I wouldn't have posted it...hahaha I hate them/are scared of them with a passion.

      So far I am enjoying A Mad Wicked Folly. :) I can't wait to read On The Fence, I hope you love it as much as her other novels!

    2. p.s. Be warned, I now know you have a fear of insects and can use that in the future...*evil laughs* Kidding, I would never do something so evil. :D

  3. I have read so many articles and tried countless times to make a blog button, it never works. I'm going to try this one anyways! The article about lying about favorite books was really interesting.

    1. I always say I'm going to make a blog button but never do as well. We shall see. lol
