Bookish Related Web Obsession


A blog (I'm sorry I don't remember which one) linked to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries the other day. It's a series of short Youtube videos modernizing Pride and Prejudice. It was created by Hank Green (brother to John). I started watching this on Tuesday and am now obsessed! You must check this out!

  3. Ooohhh Vertigo seems like an interesting read; hope you enjoy it! :)
    Looking forward to your review on Delirium as I've yet to pick up that book haha.

  4. I read Delirium in a day I think lol It was slow at some parts but I just got sucked into the world and romance. Mara Dyer was good too. Gilt sounds interesting and I love stuff involving Henry VIII and I still need to start the Wings series. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Vertigo & Gilt sound amazing! I really enjoyed Mara & Delirium..

  6. I love this cover of Destined! I cannot believe I still haven't read the first book yet... Looks like I have some catching up to do!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great haul. I would love to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Hope it was good.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I want to read Gilt. It looks interesting. I'm watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries too. I love them!

    Thanks for visiting my book haul.

  9. I liked Delirium, but there were parts when I wanted to put it down and read something else. The ending made it wort the while :)
    Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh I really need to try Delirium, I'm sooo late! I wasn't thrilled by wings so I didn't continue the series, but I hope you'll enjoy all your books!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Looking forward to your review about Delirium. I was quite excited about reading it at first but I've been seeing more and more reviews that aren't too pleased with it. I'm a bit worried it might be as boring as Matched "/ I've seen Glit around lots too. I'd definitely read the review for that (:

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm looking forward to your Delirium and TUOMD reviews and I'm going to go back and read your review of TSITP. Also, I keep seeing Gilt around, it sounds like a good read!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I haven't read Delirium, and now you have me curious as of why it took you a month to read?
    I almost picked up Mara Dyer at the library, but restrained myself, I have way too many checked out, that I need to finish first.

    Thanks for stopping by

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm REALLY looking forward to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer even though I've heard a lot of mixed things!

    The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are hilarious but what's even better is reading the comments from people who can't figure out that's it not real. ;)

    Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooh, I hope you enjoy Gilt! I've heard great things about that book and can't wait to read it myself. Vertigo looks really interesting too. I don't think I have come across that book before. Enjoy reading them all! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love the Lizzie Bennett diary posts. Very creative.

  19. I really enjoyed Mara Dyer until it became supernatural... that kinda put it a peg down :( but it was still good! And what was wrong with Delirium? Still haven't read it but have 2(!) copies lying around... looking forward to your review then!

  20. I've been meaning to read Delirium for AGES. But if it took you months that probably means it was tedious huh - length or story wise!? haha. Gilt also sounds awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  21. All of these titles are new to me. That is the fun of visiting. Here is my post: Stacking the Shelves

  22. I just finished Drop Dead Healthy--that guy is crazy! I can't imagine putting myself through everything he did. Even in the name of getting healthy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. YOU HAVE DESTINED! I completely forgot that it was out! I am majorly jealous that you have a copy - I MUST acquire one, by whatever means necessary!

    Thanks for dropping by my Stack!

  31. I hope you enjoy all of your books! I want to read the Wings series so bad, but Wings is never in my library when I'm there. I don't buy books unless I've already read them and love them. I'm weird, I know, haha. Anyway, happy reading! :) Thanks for stopping by!
