Latest Happenings

Melanie

I’m officially on summer holidays! I won’t be going back to school until February so you can imagine how overjoyed I am right now. Yes, I’ve spent my time INCREDIBLY wisely so far. I am progressing quite well with Veronica Mars which I am currently up to Season 3, Episode 2. IT IS GLORIOUS! Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t start VMars earlier on in my life. After this, I plan to resume with Supernatural which is getting better and better! I liked it to begin with, but apart from Sam and Dean, I didn’t really have any characters to root for because they were pretty much the only recurring characters until recently.

I also watched If I Stay and Maleficent recently. I liked both movies, but If I Stay didn’t leave as large of a mark for me like the book did, which was unfortunate.

Celine

Hey everyone! I feel like I’m saying this every week, but not a lot has happened lately 😛 The weather finally got really cold complete with frost and everything. No snow yet, though. It’s cold enough for my fingers and toes to freeze off, though. Hence why I’ve only been horseriding with two pairs of socks on, haha.

In other news, I am very much looking forward to winter/Christmas break, which starts about a week from now. I’m already making plans with a friend to see The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies because YES. Much excitement for that movie! I’m also very much looking forward to Christmas. I just love everything about it – the tree, the food, the presents, the food, the watching-a-movie-while-wrapped-in-a-a-blanket-because-it’s-cold-outside, and oh yeah, the food. The only thing I don’t love about it are the songs, because the radio stations start playing Christmas music from December 1st so you’re completely sick of it by the time it’s Christmas. Way to go! But otherwise, really looking forward to it 😀

Bookish News

 There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding author Zoe Sugg (known as Zoella to her YouTube fans) and her debut release of Girl Online. It has been revealed that Zoe did have a ghost writer for her book, Siobhan Curham. It is unknown of how much of Girl Online Siobhan Curham actually did contribute to, but Zoe said this week that she was taking a break from YouTube, with all the haters and rude comments she’s been receiving ever since the news broke out. Read more about this here.

In other news, The Little Prince trailer came out this week AND OH MY GAWD IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I love it guys, I don’t understand half of that the people say in the trailer (sorry, my French is still getting there) but it’s so adorable and magical and I just know the movie is going to be brilliant.

The Insurgent trailer was also released this week and…I AM NOT IMPRESSED. It looks so generic and nothing like the book, ugh. So disappointed.

New on the Shelves

I just realised that I never showcase which ebooks I receive anymore. Whoops. Here are some of the ones that I got most recently. (Yes, I went on a downloading spree on Harper titles recently, ehehe.) As for Steelheart and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, thank you thank you thank you, Jaz! You’re the bestest friend ever. I love you! <33 Also, HUGE thanks to Sarah for the secret santa! I am so excited to start The Girl with All the Gifts and the swag is so beautiful! I’m in love.

    Mel: Lucky you! I still have another week of school to get through before the Christmas holidays come, spend the week well! I really want to start watching Supernatural, but I checked it out recently and there’s so many episodes! It’ll take me forever to catch up.
    Celine: OMG The Hobbit! I absolutely love the movies 😀 Yes, I cannot wait for Christmas either. Only one of the best holidays ever! I love the spirit.
    Have a nice week ladies 🙂

  3. Great haul! 😀 And I saw Maleficent in theatres with my best friend. I really liked it! My best friend went to see The Hobbit this week with her dad. I’m not a big fan of those movies lol. 😛

    Oh the books are all new to me but I have Crimsoun Bound, I’m curious to try it. Happy reading!

  5. I actually loved If I Stay, but I was puzzled about what they’ll do with the 2nd movie because Adam didn’t say the same things to Mia before she woke up as he did in the book. I think it’s going to make it very hard to have people continue to like Mia in the 2nd movie.

    Yes! The Little Prince is one of my favourite stories ever! And I didn’t know there was going to be an animated movie… he looks so cute 🙂 And of course, I’m excited about Insurgent, too. I enjoyed Divergent much more than I thought I would.

    I hope you’ll both enjoy your new books, happy reading.

  6. YAYAYAY!! HOLIDAYSSSSSSS WOHOOOOO Although, I don’t know why I’m so excited. I haven’t even been at school so lol BUT HAVE FUN. I MEAN, I used to push through the year for the holidays at the end HAHAHAHA AND VMARS. YOU’RE DOING IT RIGHT. I SHIP LOGAN/VERONICA SO HARD THEY MAKE ME CRY AND I’M SOBBING BECAUSE YOU’RE NOW ON BOARD THE SHIP AND GAH. Have fun..with season three…

    I’m hoping to see the Hobbit as well, Celine! I only jumped on board because my big bro dragged me out for the first movie and while I wasn’t impressed, we made it our thing and came back for the second one last year (which I was hooked by!) We won’t be able to catch this last one together though which kills me but my friend offered to tag me along with her and her big bro to create an illusion hahahahaha

    Have a good week, you two!

  7. Kyra says:

    I watched If I Stay last night and I wasn’t impressed. I cried during the book, I laughed, I loved Mia’s family, I loved Adam, I loved Mia, I had all the feels but during the movie I was just like meh. Most of it seemed to be around Adam when it was supposed to be more centered around family dynamics and ugh, I was just really disappointed because I LOVED the book!

    • Melanie says:

      Aw it’s a shame that you didn’t like the movie, Kyra! I liked it, but not as much as the book. I felt like the building up of the relationship between Adam and Mia wasn’t authentic enough, though

  8. Stephanie B says:

    Yes to Battle of the Five Armies! I’ll be seeing it with my brother next week or the week after. So excited to see it! Yay for summer and Christmas breaks! Uh, yeah, I saw the Insurgent trailer when I went to Mockingjay Pt. 1 – I wasn’t impressed. I won’t be seeing that in theater.
    Stephanie B recently posted…Chasm of Posts: Tolkien & TipsMy Profile

  9. Ohh Steelheart! I hope you’ll enjoy. 🙂

    On a more serious note, I almost always expect for celebrity novelists to have ghost writers. And while I’m not a follower nor do I know anything about Zoe Suggs, this kerpuffle is probably helping boost the sales even more. It’s not my kind of book, anyway. But I hope they’ll back off of Cynthia.

    Great haul! So lucky that you have a huge break, I’ve got a two week Christmas break coming up, but I’m dying for summer too. For books, I just received an arc of “Kissing Ted Callahan and Other Guys” by Amy Spaulding. Have you read that one? It looks like a cute romantic comedy.

    • Melanie says:

      I haven’t heard of that book before, but I did read something else by Amy Spalding last year. To be honest, I didn’t like it at all, but I’m always willing to give authors a second chance 🙂

  12. Amber Elise says:

    I vaguely know about this Girl Online girl. I just think she’s getting way to much publicity. Blah to her.

    I’m stupid excited for the Le Petit Prince movie. I’ll probably cry because I’m emotional like that.

    Also I liked the Insurgent trailer, but I haven’t read the book (yet) so I don’t even know what that book is about. XD I’ve decided to read the books as the movies come out 🙂

  13. I like the way you show both of your ratings for the same book, it’s interesting to see the differences. Enjoy your new books, I’m trying to resist all the Harper books on Edelweiss right now but prob won’t for too long!

    Yay for summer break. The schools here get a month off for winter break. Yeah, the movie of If I Stay didn’t hit me as hard as the book, but it was still emotional. Ohh and so many good books.

  16. I really liked Amy & Roger; glad you did too, Celine!

    I need to read The Little Prince. I do want too! And I also want to read Steelheart, and OMG I love that cover of Perks of Being a Wallflower. I need it. haha

  17. I think I’m the only one who had a hyperventilating attack over Insurgent because I loved it so much. xD HAHA. I shall party in my fandom alone, then. 😉 OHHHH DELICIOUS BOOKS! I absolutely adored The Girl With All the Gifts. Even if it wasn’t gifs. Which, let’s face it, is kind of disappointing.
    Yay for holidays Mel! (And nearly holidays, Celine. xD) My sister’s finished up school for the year, which is aaaawesome, and we plan to um, er, well, WATCH TV. I guess we don’t have terrifically huge holiday goals. But there’s Supernatural calling us.

  18. I hope you girls have a fun time off! Melanie, it’s funny to hear you say “summer break” 😛
    I watched Maleficent recently and thought it was very good! Loved the way it reshaped the fairy tale. I still need to watch If I Stay.

    So jealous you got Things We Know By Heart! I’m still waiting on approval for that and Illusionarium.

    Happy reading!

  19. It’s so cool that you have summer break during the winter. That would be pretty awesome, except for the lack of snow. Ooh, I really want to see Malificent because I love fairytale retellings. I want to read Crimson Bound, too, again because of the fairytale retelling aspect.
    Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination recently posted…‘Bout This BloggerMy Profile

  20. Summer break sounds like a bit of heaven. As it snows like, every day here 😉 Hope you enjoy it!

    I really want to read The Girl With All the Gifts, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Illusionarium!

    I agree with If I Stay, it bugged me because I flat out did NOT like Adam’s character in any way. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it like I loved the book. As for Insurgent, I don’t know if it is just that different from the book, or if I just don’t remember the book, but it doesn’t even seem like the same thing. I don’t know, I wasn’t that impressed with Divergent, so who knows. And the Girl Online thing… well, I have a few thoughts: First, no one should ever be bullied and made to feel like they had to seclude themselves because of mean things being said. How is being awful going to make the book any less ghostwritten? Don’t like it? DON’T READ IT. That said, I think ghostwriting is kind of awful in general, and bugs me, so I likely won’t read the book, but Zoe is free to do whatever she likes, and if people enjoy it, wonderful!

    • Melanie says:

      Right? Adam was one of the reasons why I didn’t love the movie. His character was definitely not well fleshed out enough for me.

      Yes, I agree with what you said there, Shannon. It’s not cool that ghostwriting exists, but we honestly cannot do anything about it *le sigh*

  21. I’M SO JEALOUS OF YOU, MEL, WITH YOUR SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. I have two days left and then freedom, but I have a CRAPload of holiday homework. So that sucks. But still!! ENGLAND!!!

    Looks like you got some AWESOME books (really want to know what you think of Things We Know By Heart…)

    I also read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour last week! It was so adorable!! I hope you enjoyed it too 😀 That book is so fluffy and amazing. I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE’S A MOVIE FOR THE LITTLE PRINCE. Omg I love the book!!! <3 I'm so excited ^.^ Thanks for sharing!

  25. I sometimes forget that it’s summer right now down under; when I first read your update, Melanie, I was like what the heck is she talking about, it’s almost Xmas. LOL! And, yes, do continue to binge watch Sam & Dean. ♥ I can’t WAIT to see the last Hobbit movie either, Celine. # 1 and I burned through the first two this past weekend, so we’re ready to rock!

    Mel: Yay for holidays! Doesn’t it feel SO good to be finally off of school?! I don’t have summer where I live, but we have end-of-the-year school holidays, which is considerably shorter but just as fun. xD And eep, I really need to get started on both Supernatural and Veronica Mars. I don’t know how many people I’ve met who absolutely love those two shows. O_O So glad you enjoyed If I Stay, too! Haven’t watched it yet, but the low-ish average rating on IMDb is kinda freaking me out. Maybe I’ll read the book first…

    Celine: Haha, don’t worry — I totally get you. My life, even though I’m enjoying it, is pretty much spent doing bookish stuff on the computer. Like anyone’s gonna be interested in that, right. xD My family and I are going to go watch The Hobbit in IMAX 3D this Thursday! Christmas present for my dad, because he’s a LotR fan, so I’m really excited. Hoping it’ll be better than Desolation of Smaug, lol. That one was okay, but I hated the romance between Kili and Tauriel. Worst thing ever.

    Ooh, I didn’t know they were making a film of The Little Prince! I read the book AGES ago, but damn, that trailer. GORGEOUS. I love the papery looks of the Prince. Too bad it’s in French, though. 🙁 And yeah, Insurgent… The teaser trailer was crap, and I’m unsure about the first trailer. I’ll probably end up watching it, though, because I want more Four and Tris, haha.

    MEL, I WANT ALL YOUR BOOKS. Hehe. Hope you enjoy! Have an awesome week, you two. <3

  27. Enjoy your holidays, Celine 🙂 I love VMars. I thought the second season wasn’t as good, but enjoyed the first and third seasons a lot. And I really liked the audiobook of the VM book that just came out. Highly recommend if you finish the shows and are wanting more…

    I hadn’t heard about the ghostwriter thing. I do think ghostwriters should be credited. I don’t understand why people try to hide it — getting help writing a book is a shameful secret. But I also agree with Shannon (above): we all have a choice to buy/read the book or not and it’s not okay to cyberbully someone when you disagree with them…

      Yeah, the big mystery in the second season wasn’t as interesting. I am loving s3 so far!

      I don’t see why they won’t write that the book was co-written. Like you said, there’s nothing wrong with that! People can be seriously ridiculous 😐

  28. Whoops that was supposed to say: Getting help writing a book is NOT a shameful secret.

  29. Stuti says:

    I’m not even going try talking about anything besides Veronica Mars. S03E02 means you recently finished season 2 and watched the last episode and did you love that dialogue of logan’s about epic and summer and omg how do you love him how much really? not gonna project my opinions (until you’re finished, is what I mean) but HOW MUCH? and which is your fave season and eeeeeeep! I read the second book a while ago and that’s made me remember all the good things, none of the bad. VERONICA MARS is to me what Buffy is to old people. 😀 She is my hero and also, summer vacations. ;_; It’s raining here, along with fog and bone-deep cold and an suspicious, predictable lack of snowfall.

  30. I absolutely LOVED The Gift with all the Gifts! My “winter break” officially started though not from school I just decided to take 2 weeks off from work because I’m so tired from being pregnant that I know I need a break to be able to make it to mid February when I’m going to take off for maternity leave. So I hope you guys enjoy your winter break I know I hopefully will.

    Oh that trailer for Le Petit Prince is sooo adorable – I hope they subtitle it in English!!

  31. Oh looks like some good books there! I so need to watch Maleficent. Hopefully the Insurgent movie will still surprise you. Maybe? 🙂

  32. WTF is up with that Insurgent trailer??? I hated it it and I feel like I was the only one. I don’t see anything similar to the books and I felt like they are trying too hard to make Tris an action hero or something. It was all too much explosions and visual effects and not enough story. I’m not looking forward to that movie so far…

    I fell asleep during the first Hobbit (I think I was just tired because that was the first time I’ve ever fallen asleep at the movies) but I loooved the second one. I’m excited for the last one!

    I loved Out of Control! Are you nervous for The 100 mid season finale Mel? Poor Finn, all the fans hate him….

    Enjoy your books girls!

      I ended up asking Ashley and she told me to type in some fancy weird thing and it worked! She’s truly magical. And thank you for trying to help anyways! 😀

      Yeah, the Insurgent trailer is truly horrid. I am so disappointed, it looks sooo generic 🙁

  34. Only 3 stars for How They Met? I was curious about that book, I always see it in the bookstore.

    Lovely haul, Mel! And no, I’m not impressed with The Insurgent trailer either. Not rushing to the cinema once it comes out. I only liked the first book and the second one bored me o death, then it went downhill from there.

  35. The little prince looks so good. I’m excited and it reminds me I need to read the book. This Insurgent trailer looks at least better than the first one. The girl with all the gifts is amazing! Happy reading 🙂

  36. It seems so weird for you to be on summer holidays in the winter here. I love Veronica Mars! Supernatural too! Have you gotten to Crowley yet?

    We had a snowy November, but not December here. I can’t wait to see the Hobbit! I’m a little afraid of that 45 minute battle scene though.

    I had heard about the Girl Online ghost writer thing. I don’t understand why people are hating, lots of people use ghost writers and I’m sure the writer was paid and accepted that her name wouldn’t be on the book.

    I just got Steelheart too. Illusionarium and Crimson Bound look rally good too!

    Isn’t Veronica Mars the best? I recently rewatched the first season with a friend (first time viewer, I made her) and it was so great. I have seen the first episode of the third season but not further than that. And the movie! I loved the movie so. much.

    I haven’t seen Supernatural. I didn’t care for If I Stay either, neither did aforementioned friend. I loved Maleficent though when I saw it. Despite some changes…

    ~Celine~
    Would you believe me if I said I’ve never read or watched any of the Lord of The Rings books/movies? I haven’t. Oh, but my (aforementioned) friend made plans to see The Hobbit with one of her friends.

    It’s pretty cold here too and it actually snowed the other day. I’m not much of a snow person. I need to start watching Christmas movies! I haven’t watched any yet and it’s like, oh my gosh, it’s now the 20th! Wow. I need to get on that.

    I actually like Christmas music, well, Christian Christmas music, like some of the hymns. Haha. As for regular Christmas music, I like a little of that too, but not a lot. I hope your Christmas is great! And I need to read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour.
    – – – – – –
    ~Bookish News~
    Oh my goodness. Oh my gosh. I can’t put my feelings into words. I haven’t ever heard of this movie, but oh my goodness. THAT TRAILER IS GORGEOUS AND THE SONG IN THE BACKGROUND, I LOVE THAT COVER BY LILY ALLEN. I’m sorry about the caps, but just hearing that song in the trailer just. ah, it looks wonderful! I don’t know any French. 🙁 Hopefully there will be subtitles and it will be available in the U.S. sometime.

    Perks Perks Perks! I’m giving my aforementioned friend above (her name’s TAsha) that book for Christmas since she loved the movie. 🙂

    I also have Out of Control and Things We Know By Heart. I bought a Kindle a few days ago (still waiting to get it) and I’ve been buying e-books like crazy. Some of the ones I’m most excited about are:

    Open Road Summer by Emery Lord, Staying Strong: 365 Days A Year by Demi Lovato, Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts, Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern, Side Effects May Vary by Julia Murphy, Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, The Outsiders by SE Hinton, The Giver by Lois Lowry, All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal.
