I feel like every few months I look back and do an update-like post that really isn’t that informative, but I still do it anyways. Too bad, huh :p So here we go, this is just some odd blogging/book/world related thoughts on my mind.
The fabulous Linna from 21 Pages is a super-talented graphic designer, and I’m pretty sure ALL of you know about her gorgeous blog… but check out these designs she did for Chloe’s blog and Ezmirelda's blog! The designs are beautiful, that Linna girl is talented. So if you’re fed up with your layout… *shoves you towards her design blog*
Another extremely talented and super lovely graphic designer (who, from my naïve assumptions, is pretty much the smartest person ever regarding codes, wordpress, websites, etc) Cialina also designs blogs (understatement, probably), along with helping you transition from blogger to self-hosted, if you want to jump on that bandwagon (all the cool kids are doing it!). And her blog.. it’s so pretty... so, so pretty.
What is with all the cover reveals?????
I mean, sure, it’s great publicity and that, but it just feels like it crept up on me and BOOM, one day all I see is cover reveals everywhere.
I need an awesome book to read. Any suggestions?
Requirements because I’m picky:
No love triangles, not a series, protagonist older than 15, no paranormal, preferably tears or laughter-inducing, must not have ugly cover (jk).
I want to venture into reading adult fiction, any suggestions? Realistic fiction, preferably. Not Nicholas Sparks.
I’m currently doing this "try something new for 30 days" project from this Ted Talk that I found on Stephanie Perkins’ blog. It’s basically a challenge for myself to take a picture every day for 30 days, and I decided to create a Tumblr to post my pictures, so you can check it out if you’re interested. I feel like 2012 will be a year of 30 day challenges, and I’m considering maybe collab-ing with someone who might be interested in doing something small/creative/writing-esque for 30 days with me, comment if interested? :)
I’m seeing the midnight screening of The Hunger Games!!! EEEP I’m excited, and I’ll be done midterms by then!!! I’m pretty stoked about the movie, though I wish they’d stop comparing it to Twilight. That makes me gag.
HAVE YOU SEEN THE LATEST AVENGERS TRAILER?!?!?!?!?!
I think I’ve rewatched that 5 times. I CAN’T WAIT. And no, I haven’t read the comics and such, but I’m just stoked to watch a movie that looks friggin AWESOME. (youtube link)
I find this tumblr very pleasing on the eyes. And if that’s not enough, read the tags. They’re hysterical (brought to you by the awesome Yahong). #he's luscious when he's intense, ya'll
What's the best movie you've seen recently? I need a movie to fall in love with.
I'm contemplating the future of this blog. I find that sometimes I try and sit down and write something reasonably intelligent or thought-provoking and it just turns into a pile of dung. Yeah that's right, dung. I've read an absurdly little number of books this year, yet I don't find myself wanting to jump into a few that have been sitting on my shelf. I don't find that I'm dying to read Pandemonium or whichever shiny new release that's been out, which makes me question my commitment to sparkle motion. Or whatever.
That's all, my lovelies, and as always, thanks for reading. I like how these posts always start out book related then end up on different tangents.
