TGIF / 27

Many apologies, friends, for the lack of posting and commenting. I'm being a bad friend, I know. Ever since my work decided to block just about every other website known to man, it's been difficult for me to keep up with it all on a regular basis. I promise I'll try to get better at managing my time and being a better friend. Now on to happier things like fun web links and boozy weekends!

Bookish News
If you need to lift your spirits, check out this roundup of wonderful life quotes from children's books.

Gillian discusses the worst YA break-ups and it is both brilliant and hilarious. Which YA break-ups stand out to you?

Apparently there are lots of books being adapted for TV/film over the next year.

As it turns out, famous authors aren't always what you expect.

And the shocker of the century... Robert Galbraith is actually J.K. Rowling!

Entertainment News
The new Godzilla reboot has its own website. Also, here are some sneak peaks from behind-the-scenes.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 now has a teaser trailer.

An interesting interview with author/director, Guillermo del Toro, on monsters and their meaning.

The new Catching Fire movie stills and quarter quell movie posters set my heart all aflutter.

First there was Sharknado, now there's Ghost Shark. When does it end?

Pop Culture!
Have you ever wanted to see wookies in real life situations? Well, there ya go.

This is how you know you grew up on Disney movies.

Want to make your bedroom a little more geek-chic? Then go buy these amazeballs sci-fi themed door decals. Score!


  1. I thought the information about those authors were more funny than anything else. Authors can be a little crazy. I'm sad Louisa May Alcott was all about the money and drugs and not about her stories, but I love Little Women anyway.

    Those posters and stills for Catching Fire have me drooling. I can't believe we still have several months to wait!

    Sharknado looks really stupid. My husband wants to watch it just to see how bad it really is, but I think I'm going to pass. I love when I see a few people critiquing the move on facebook/twitter, I wanted to tell them that obviously it wasn't made to be an Oscar nominated movie and you knew what you were getting into before watching it so please stop complaining.

    1. Yeah, it's interesting to hear another side of these authors other than what we typically imagine. It doesn't usually affect how I feel about their stories though. Usually being the operative word there...

      So they've just released the official full-length trailer to Catching Fire at Comic Con and I squealed just a little bit.

      Movies like Sharknado are purposefully bad (I'm sort of all about crappy B-list horror films) but it always kills me when people seriously think they're supposed to be good. They really shouldn't complain. Movies like this are meant to poke fun at the genre and I view them more as comedy than horror.

  2. Ahhhh...I am all for boozy weekends. Get outta town about Robert Galbraith! I'm adding that book to my wishlist right now. Big Rowling fan.
    Happy weekend!

    1. I think everyone was shocked about that one (and apparently Rowling was pretty peeved about the reveal too)...


You stay classy now! And thanks for stopping by. But mostly stay classy.
