Fun Stuff:

Need a Tom Hiddleston gif to properly express how you feel? Our TUMBLR OF THE WEEK, Gifs of Hiddles, has you covered.

I don't usually watch book trailers - they seem kind of silly - but this one for Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer is both hilarious and awesome.

Awesome movie lines edited to ridiculous lines for TV. ("Hand me the keys, you fairy godmother"??! lol) WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE. NSFW.

In honor of Mary Shelley's birthday - how pop culture has celebrated Frankenstein

And, finally, an explanation of Christian Bale's gravelly Batman voice.

This Harry Potter movie retrospective is pretty darn cool. There are spoilers, so beware. And no I am not tearing up, my eyes are just watering.

The list of the Hugo Award winners. Yeeaaah, Game of Thrones!

This is a great list of short YA books (220 pages or less) in case you're in need of a quick fix.

The Hunger Games -- as acted out by Beanie Babies. So damn funny and absurd and I love the internet. 

And sometimes the internet sucks: new spoof accounts targeting/trolling authors Anne Somerville and Stacia Kane. GEE I WONDER WHO THAT COULD BE.

And to go along with that - more proof that STGRB is run by Vanity herself.

This goes perfectly with that unending idiot and her asshatery: the LA Times asks why reviews should have to be "nice."

Sigh. STARZ picks up Philippa Gregory's War of the Roses novel, The White Queen, for small-screen adaptation. It's a compelling story, but did they have to go with Gregory for source material?

8 Ways Judges Have Cited Star Trek from the Bench. The first one was the most amusing for me. 

CBS' Beverly Hills Cop tv show is moving forward.... Okay then. 

Samsung trolls Apple with how they paid their $1b fine. Didn't basketball team Marc Cuban do something similar when fined by the NBA? In pennies, I believe.

And, making the rounds on the web lately is: "Edward and Bella" - a bad lip reading of Twilight. "Keeeviiiiiiin." "You slapped  a fiiiiiish." I lol'd - and it's still a better love story than the real plot of the novel.

New pics from the Hobbit movies - Legolas's father Thranduil is revealed. I can hardly see Ned Lee Pace in there.  (RIP Pushing Daisies.)

Check out the pilot for the new show "Revolution" - directed by Jon Favreau. (No matter what he does in life - directing Iron Man, etc. - I will always remember him as Monica's wrestling boyfriend on Friends.)

Judy Blume shares her battle with breast cancer. Between this lady, Lois Lowery, JRR Tolkien, and JK Rowling, they helped create my love for reading.


  1. Is it weird that I live for this Blog Feature? ;) Another awesome Blog Watch Wednesday Post, Jessie! I loved the Stormdancer trailer (only Jay Kristoff would come up with something like that!), the ToG Review (we're not aloneee!), and YES TDKR! :D Awesome, awesome, awesomeee!(:

    Ivy Book Bindings

    1. No not at all! I am glad people read them and like them! I started it to show all the links I enjoyed from the week so I really enjoy with others get something out of it too!

      And re: Jay Kristoff - right?! It's so totalyl his humor and I love it to pieces. And Ewa's review for ToG was so dead on I couldn't not link it.

      And yes! Our mutual husband continues to dominate as the Batman! I am so eager to see what he does next.

  2. eeeeesh! A heads up on the language of that movie line video would have been helpful! lol I had to click off of that pretty dang fast :) Anyway, great feature, some really good stuff here.

    Recent Post: Good Golly Miss Molly! Review: When It Happens to You by Molly Ringwald

    1. Ack! I am so so sorry! I meant to put a warning in there and totally forgot. Won;'t happen again and I am glad the rest was entertaining!
