Thursday Thirteen #25

Once again, I frantically trying to catch up. I have bookmarked roughly 837 blog posts that I want to mention here, I want to talk about what I'm reading, I have a monkey story to relate... SO you're getting it in a freeform sort of Thursday Thirteen. It's kinda cheating, I know, but it's my blog I can do what I want!

  1. I just saw this post over at Elle Fredrix's blog. Freaky cool, huh? They move very slowly for me.

  2. Your Friendly Neighborhood Book Dragon posted the BEST review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that I have seen yet. Very insightful. (Note: there are spoilers in the review, bookmark it and come back if you haven't finished yet.)

  3. Etsy Love! A journey of 1000 stitches had the brilliant idea to post about etsy and collect some links into Mr. Linky. Go check it out. My own etsy shop (still tiny!) is listed there as well.

  4. This review of The Time Traveler's Wife (again at Your Friendly Neighborhood Book Dragon) makes me want to move it up my list- fast! I own the book, what am I waiting for? (oh yeah, all those OTHER books I own...)

  5. Erin at The Paperback Stash nominated me for the Rockin' Girl Blogger award. I LOVE that picture at the top of her blog, no, not that one, the one on the right.

  1. Trish nominated me too! Does this one cancel out the other? Thanks ladies.

  2. Your Friendly Neighborhood Book Dragon (can you tell I just discovered this blog? and that I love it?) posted the Best. Ever. Story about used book shopping. Go read it.

  3. I am reading The Storyteller's Daughter by Saira Shah. It is about Afghanistan, and I had hoped it to be an enlightening follow up to A Thousand Splendid Suns. It's a memoir, and so far I'm finding it to be much less serious that I had hoped. The author is clearly enchanted with Afghanistan, and it is coloring her writing. This is good for most memoirs, but not really what I'd hoped for this one.

  4. I am also reading Glass Houses by Rachel Caine. This is the author of the Weather Warden series, which I love. (Ok, I've only read the first one. I love it though!) I've read about half of Glass Houses, and the jury is still out. It is only just now getting interesting. Fortunately, it is also short.

  5. We are going camping for real this weekend. Like, in a tent and everything. I can't wait to see what the Monkey thinks.

  6. And speaking of His Monkeyness- yesterday he told me he wanted to wear a specific shirt. I said, "this one? the one with the Brontosaurus on it?" and he said, " No Mommy! APATOSAURUS." Gee thanks kid. Correcting me ALREADY??? and he's not even 2 1/2 yet!

  7. Dewey created a blog where we can discuss Harry Potter with full spoilers. Go check it out.

  8. There is a necklace on Etsy that I really really want. Like really. Badly. WANT. I visit it every day to make sure it is still there. Because I want it. A lot. Only now I am nervous about posting the link, cause what if you want it too?? So just imagine it, k?
(for whatever reason, blogger doesn't want me to put that picture there without renumbering my list. 5+8=13)


  1. CONGRATS on Rocking Girl Blogger. I got nominated a few weeks ago, too. Makes you feel special, doesn't it?

    Too funny about Monkey. My kids do that all the time. It's almost depressing after 10 years. LOL

  2. Thanks for braving my blog of perpetual computer freezingness to leave me a comment. :) Could you check back now and see if it's still giving you trouble?

  3. Thanks for checking back. I'll tinker with it again later and see if I can make it better.

  4. I'm sorry you're not really enjoying The Storyteller's Daughter...maybe it will get better.

    On the other hand, The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my ALL TIME favorite stories (watch out, though, you will probably have to put it in the freezer a few times).

  5. Trish, you already know me so well!

  6. I really think you will LOVE Time Traveler's Wife! Read it before the movie. . .

  7. You have have HAVE to read Time Traveler's Wife. I LOVED it! The story is FANTASTIC. The characters are SO PALPABLE. It's one the best reads I've had in a LONG time. It's really a remarkable book. The movie's in the works, too: Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana (hott!) starring....

  8. I have to laugh at Haley-O's comments. BUT I was hoping for Christian Bale as Henry (did you see my comment on your LW post?). I'm gonna get back to laundry, cleaning, packing, and fantasizing about Christian Bale...

  9. Great blog! I'll have to check back when I'm not trying to keep up with Blogathoners.

  10. I'm glad you like Book Dragon! It's a lot of fun to do. Thanks for all the links!

    I'm depressed that they're doing a Time Traveler movie. They'd doing a movie for The Dark is Rising series, too. It seems to me that some books don't need to be converted to film, don't you think? Oh well - I don't have to see it if I don't want to, do I. :)

    Even having witnessed the bookshop story firsthand, I can barely believe it's true. Seriously just one of the neatest things ever...
