The Sweet Bookshelf 01. I haven't been blogging much. Oh, I've been reading. I've just not been blogging if you couldn't tell. There's a reason for it and I might {might!} blog on it. The Sweet Bookshelf
Gosh, the new blogger thing is weird. Anyhow, I have returned from the large, looming land of tumblr to deliver this to you. As per normal, any in-coherency will be thoroughly apologized for, but probably not dealt with any time soon. Hopefully, I'm going to start posting here more frequently, but you know, if that doesn't happen, I have an irrelevant tumblr that you can find here ^^. Granted, I don't post about books very much, but I'm looking to change that and it's always good if someone needs to contact me. Anyhow, onto the review.

So Many Books, So Little Time So Many Books, So Little Time I thoroughly enjoyed highlighting all of the books I was most excited about for the coming season last summer, and with so many seriously amazing books on the way this year, I figured why not do it again! So here you are: my most anticipated books to be released between now and the end of June. All release dates and publishers are UK ones and correct as of 22/12/13 according to Amazon UK, unless otherwise stated. January
Jenni and Autumn are lifelong best friends. Practically joined at the hip, they're so inseperable that their families even rent timeshare holiday homes at the same resort each year. But this particular summer, things don't go according to plan. When Jenni hops in the elevator as usual to visit Autumn's apartment, she finds herself slipping forward in time. A whole year forward.

As part of the blog tour for her new novel - Find Me - Romily Bernard has stopped by to talk about her favourite hackers and detectives... --- My Favorite Television Hackers and Detectives 1. Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock in BBC’s SHERLOCK series. He’s such an amazing Sherlock Holmes. The new adaptation is stylish, slick, and I am completely hooked.

Persnickety Snark As a comic reader and pop culture maven it made sense that I would start watching Arrow when it debuted in October of 2012. I had viewed all ten seasons of Smallville with the fervent hope that Chloe would one day step to the fore. She didn't, unfortunately, but she did snag herself Green Arrow and then slowly (but not surely) extricated herself from the mess that that show became. Persnickety Snark
January 17th, 2014 3 reasons to read The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson: 1. This fantastically accurate description of high school: 'The halls surged with a parade of beautiful strangers. They laughed too loud. Flirted. Shrieked.

I’m back! I know I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks, and I don’t have a particularly exciting reason–school and work have been getting to me, plus, you know, I do have a social life, and add it all together and you get very little leftover time for blogging. Plus, I’ve just fallen out of the habit lately…But I’m going to try to be better. (You decide in a month or so if that’s an April Fools’ joke or not). So what now? I haven’t been reading a whole lot.

Frenetic Reader Despite the underwhelming box office performance of movies based on bestsellers such as Beautiful Creatures, there's a whole slew of other movies based on YA novels coming out between now and 2014. Because I like to think I am more knowledgable about YA books and movies than I actually am, and I'd like a record to check back on at the end of next year, I thought I'd put together a list of predictions regarding the quality, success, potential sequels, etc. of some upcoming movies: Being that this one comes out next week, I thought it only fitting to put it first on my list.

Steph Su Reads I had been warned by numerous parties in the months leading up to this: my first winter in Korea would be particularly vicious upon my immune system. I was told stories of perfectly healthy twenty-somethings who, within a month of arriving in Korea, came down with the most serious illnesses of their lives. We're talking hospitalization, everything. Good thing health care in Korea is so affordable!
Angieville This will be the second year in a row I've started off with a review of a historical romance. What can I say? They are working for me lately, and especially at this time of new beginnings and transitions. I find comfort, laughter, and encouragement within the pages of the best ones.
