Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup

14 May


Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. Some are serious, and some are just downright hilarious. We highly recommend you read them!

– You might’ve heard about the uproar following New York Times’ Gina Bellefante’s review of GAME OF THRONES, the HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy series, A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE. She claims Fantasy belongs to men – but this article looks at why fantasy appeals to so many women.

– BEST. COMIC STRIP. EVER. If you’re feeling the tiniest bit of doubt, this comic will definitely put you back on track!

– Curious about what the next big trend will be in YA? Well, looks like mermaids are going to be the next big trend to make a splash.

– The title pretty much says it all.

– Some pretty amusing comics! Definitely check them out.

– Boys, here are some reasons you should date a girl who reads. (Girls, this is bound to make you smile!)

– Howl’s Moving Castle = awesomeness. Howl’s Moving Castle PAPERCRAFT?! TOO awesome!


(Many thanks to Alex once again for this link as well! :D)





Wooo! It’s the weekend! Share with us any thoughts, links, or book recommendations! Happy Saturday!

    so… if I didn’t get the “date girls who read” link from LTWF a few months ago, who did I originally get it from?
