 Corny Joke Monday 

I'm going to warn you now: There's a woeful shortage of funny Passover jokes.

Why do we have a Haggadah at Passover?
So we can Seder right words!

 Last Week on the Blog 

 This Week on the Blog 

The Supes by Matthew Pritt ARC Review
Grip of the Shadow Plague by Brandon Mull Mini Review
The Blacklist Marathon You Need Before S4 Returns List

 What I'm Reading: 

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and
share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.

The Lake House by Kate Morton
This is my book club read of the month and I am really, really enjoying it. It's just the kind of mystery I've been wanting to read. Full of dubious, well-written characters with their own secrets and a complicated story.

Lone Ranger/Green Hornet
An ARC graphic novel, whose title basically sums things up. ^_^

The Wonder by Emma Donoghue (audio)
Not my normal read, but booksaremyfavouriteandbest mentioned it on her Six Degrees of Separation post last week and how it features the deeply religious and superstitious beliefs of the rural Irish in 1850, which has ties to my current WIP, so I'm giving it a try. (I've also been tasked to relate the ending to my boss, who didn't get a chance to finish it. XD)

 What I Read: 

 What's Next:  

Geekerella by Ashley Poston ARC
And, hopefully, Heartstone by Elle Katherine White

 Internet Shenanigans 

Can I just say how AWESOMESAUCE my YouTube subscribers are?! I haven't been able to post videos regularly for almost a year, and the last one I posted was a good six months ago. Yet when I posted my Chocolat (Book vs Movie) I quickly got comments of jubilation from those most loyal people? Yep, they rock. ^_^

 In Real Life 

I have been -and will continue- to play around with my new lighting equipment to get back into a regular video posting schedule. I'm so excited to get back into this!
Also, writing! Plotting! Character building! I discovered a ton of great character-related writing tips yesterday, so I want to do a post soon with a bunch of those links. Keep writing, fellow writers!

 New Additions 

Thanks to Dad and the local thrift store:
He found it for a dollar -a dollar!- and passed it on to me, because he's awesome like that, and he already has a copy, and we both adore it. I can't even, guys; this is one of the best books I've ever read! (Check out my review of it here.) And I was just thinking it was time for a reread...

Pre-order from Barnes & Noble:

Thanks to Goodreads giveaways:

Now just to get the time to read them...


  What's new with you?


  1. I would love to hear about your tips for character development!

    1. Good to know there's an interest! I'll work on getting that together. ;)

  2. Geekerella is on my wishlist. I'm posting while on my road trip, thanks to my trusty smart phone. It's Monday! What are your reading?

  3. Your comment on my blog about The Lake House is exactly what I thought, I loved the characters, and I was impatient for the mystery to be solved which is kind of not solved till the end. The book reminded me of how Alice describes her own books.

    1. Interesting, that the book reminded you of how Alice describes her own.! I like when things within the book are a kind of shadow of the actual book itself. =)

  4. Geekerella and Heartstone both look great. And good luck with the writing, I was reading your WIP post from last week and that's awesome that you are making such good progress (and getting over some of those hurdles). Writing is hard, let's face it. :) Hope it continues to go well.

    1. What was it Hemmingway said? "All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." Thanks for the well wishing! Good luck with your writing endeavors as well. ;)

  5. A few others are reading The Lake House for their book clubs. Enjoy.

    1. Yeah, it sounded like a lot of people were in the same boat! So far, so good. Thanks for stopping by. ;)

  6. I'm very curious about Geekerella so looking forward to that review. I have to say I think you are AWESOMELY brave to post videos. I could die slow and painfully of shyness before I could be on youtube ;-) Hurry with those character development tips! :) as Dory would say.. just Keep writing Keep writing :)

    1. I was just using that bit of Dory wisdom earlier! XD I'm going to post those next week, definitely.
      Thanks! Gotta admit, I'm not always comfortable in front of the camera, but I love doing it. I always wanted to do theater, but I never had the opportunity, so one day I thought "Why not booktube?" And there you have it. XD

  7. Awww ... I love that you have loyal YouTube followers who miss you. I'm sure that makes you feel loved!
