Around The Blogosphere
- Celine has moved from Blogger to WordPress. Changed your bookmarks and plop her new blog in your readers.
- For Amanda’s birthday, she answered our questions. Sadly I didn’t get the answer I hoped for *sniff* but have fun reading.
- I’ve got two Hanna-y reviews to share with you from the past couple of weeks. Both of books I haven’t read but would really like to. First up, White Cat by Holly Black, followed by The Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin.
- Last Sunday, Ellie from Musings of a Bookshop Girl talked about Reviewer’s Block. Oh how I have felt your pain recently, m’dear.
- And last but not least, Bout of Books sign-ups are now live! Join us!
Not Quite The Blogosphere
- It was a couple of weeks ago now that the film trailer for Cloud Atlas was released but it wowed me so much that I had to make sure you guys have seen it. This is proof that you should never judge a book by its’ cover because I’ve always assumed Cloud Atlas was one of those life-changing, depressing contemporary novels but lo-and-behold it’s actually 6 different stories exploring how history is constantly repeating itself. It’s a historical, a contemporary, and a futuristic dystopian all in one and I nabbed a copy of the book as soon as I was able. And will be seeing this movie. Watch the trailer!!
- I love this ‘If You Liked The Hunger Games‘ flowchart which helps you to choose your next read.
- It has been confirmed that The Hobbit will now be a trilogy as opposed to the originally planned two movies. Geek-squee!!
My (Two) Weeks
I’ve started a personal blog which I haven’t had chance to update in the past week, and I’ve also blogged a little on my gaming blog as I am focusing a fair bit on gaming at the moment. When I’m exhausted I turn to gaming and I’ve really been playing a lot of WoW before the new expansion comes out.
- alice in steampunk land – your wish is my command.
- ice t inside the crips complete forward – I don’t get it…
- seal cheeks – …
- steampunk girl trains – choo choo
- wishbone, 20000 leagues under the sea – oh my god I loved Wishbone!
- what happens at the end of glass houses book – Christ. Go read it.
What Am I Reading?
Finished: Grave Dance by Kalayna Price

What Next? I don’t know! There are so many!
I’ve been so stressed and not with it lately that I haven’t read much at all in the past couple of weeks.
