Stacked (143): #YALLWEST Edition

Stacked (143): #YALLWEST Edition

Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. This week’s haul is brought to you by YALLWEST. My haul is actually pretty small. While the event had a ton of awesome authors, I’ve been lucky enough to see most of them in person before so I didn’t have a ton of books that I needed to get. I also didn’t want to cart around 50 lbs of books so this is a small, but awesome little stack this week. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead – One of the last… Read more »

Uncovered (143): Soundless

Uncovered (143): Soundless

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a weekly post where I show some cover love. Enjoy! I am really excited about today’s featured cover. As long time readers might know, Richelle Mead is one of my favorite authors. I love her adult as well as her YA novels and I eagerly await each new release. Earlier this year, Mead surprised us all by revealing that her next book would be Soundless, a fantasy based on Chinese folklore! She then then topped it… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: The Change-Up – Vampire Academy

What Does the Bookworm Say?: The Change-Up – Vampire Academy

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature that I am doing with my friends The Reader’s Antidote, Elegantly Bound Books and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is a recurring one called The Change-Up in which we discuss cover changes. Since the Vampire Academy movie is opening wide this week, we though it would be fun to discuss the recent cover changes. If you want to know what I though of the movie, check out this post. Spoiler – I liked it. These are the original Vampire Academy series covers. And these are the new revamped covers. Let me start this off by… Read more »

Not Really a Movie Review: Vampire Academy

Not Really a Movie Review: Vampire Academy

Hi, guys. As you can tell from the title of this post, this is not really a movie review. I wanted to write about the Vampire Academy movie, but I kind of suck at writing movie reviews and it would take forever. I wanted to share with you my feelings while it was still fresh in my mind, so with inspiration from this Buzzfeed list, I am going to list for you the reasons that I recommend seeing the VA movie. I’ll preface this by saying that I am a big fan of Richelle Mead and the series, but I… Read more »

TV Spot: Vampire Academy

TV Spot: Vampire Academy

A new TV spot was just released for the upcoming Vampire Academy movie. It has a darker tone than the previous trailers, which some thought were too cheesy (but I loved them). Dark or campy, I don’t care. There’s no way I am missing this movie. The release date has also been moved up a week and is now set to release on Feb 7, 2014.

New Trailer: Vampire Academy

New Trailer: Vampire Academy

The Weinstein Company just released the full theatrical trailer for the Vampire Academy movie. What do you guys think? It’s getting a lot of flack for looking too campy. Though I am still not sure I am sold on the overall tone of the movie, there’s no way I am not going to see it. I mean, I have seen way worse adaptations and I love VA, so I will be there opening weekend. Who else is coming with me?

Vampire Academy – New Trailer

Vampire Academy – New Trailer

I just posted this on Facebook but thought it warranted a quick post as well. Yahoo Movies has just released the first trailer for Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters. What do you guys think? It looks campy, vampy, and full of high school angst. Count me in! We only get a brief glimpse of Dmitri but Rose is looking pretty badass. Anyone else excited for this movie?

Manicure Monday (18): Gameboard of the Gods

Manicure Monday (18): Gameboard of the Gods

Hi and welcome to another installment of Manicure Monday. The idea is easy – show off your current read with your current manicure. You can be creative and match your book to your mani or just show off the newest color on your digits. I love book and nail polish and encourage flaunting both. It’s good to be back this week. I was in Ojai last Monday so I skipped MM last week. But I am glad to be back and I have a fun manicure to show off today. This week’s book is Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle… Read more »
