Tuesday Giggles: New Moon Version

I knew it wouldn't be long after the New Moon movie came out before the highly talented Cleolinda would have her New Moon in Fifteen Minutes up for public devouring. So for this version of Giggles, hie thee to Cleo's place and laugh yourself silly over her rundown of the latest offering from the Twilight verse. While you're there, check out her other hysterical recaps, including Twilight! And while you're here, did you see the flick? I did. What did you think?

  1. I laughed hysterically over the New Moon recap. I live for those things.

  2. I liked the movie! I thought the acting, special effects, and just about everything was done better this time around.

    I will say that I don't really like the casting of Edward (or Bella). I just dont think he really portrays Edward the right way.

  3. Of course I saw it. . .Team JAAAACOB. :)

  4. Donna, I know. She is ridiculously good at those. Her recap of the scene where Edward leaves....oh my word.

    Kath, yeah, you either like him or not. I think both of them need to smile more. They're both so pretty when they smile....lol. I enjoyed the movie as well!

    Janssen, lol, I was waiting for you to pop in. This movie was clearly made by Team Jacob fans, no? :)

  5. Thanks for the link! I checked for it straight away after I saw the film and it wasn't up yet. Oh God, the movie was so silly. For some reason I completely lost it when the werewolves were wrestling each other - it wasn't the silliest moment in the film but I was laughing so hard I was gasping.

  6. Funny - LOL. You asked on my blog a few days ago who I used in my team Gale sig- it is Kevin Zegers.

  8. Jenny, lol! The abundance of half-naked men was pretty silly.

    Pixie, ooh, good to know. :)

    Britt, yeah, they're fun to read as they come in.

  9. Went to the movie with you. Totally enjoyed it. I almost squealed with some of the old ladies when Jacob striped off his shirt for the first time, but I refrained by shoving that huge cookie in my mouth...

    I also agree that Bella and Edward smiling more would help their characters a lot! They are happier in the books.

    The 15 minute version is hilarious.

  10. Didn't see it, didn't read the movie. But I'll happily watch parody clips, so thanks!

  11. Enjoyed the movie, though I almost laughed a few more times than was intended by the director. Edward was too emo (*phonecrush emosob* from Cleolinda's recap is still making me giggle) this time around - I think I'm Team Edward for the books, but I may have to go with Team Jacob for the movies, at least this one.

    I'm glad you posted the link to the recap - I'd forgotten about those!

    Thank you so much for this link! Hilarious. I actually like the books and the movies, but I admit they have plenty of flaws and it's fun to poke at those flaws!

  13. Liza, thank goodness for those cookies! lol. They are happier in the books, I agree. Ah, well. It was a good time.

    Tia, my pleasure. She does such a good job with them. They crack me up to no end.

    Allie, I'm with you on Team Jacob for the movies. Seriously seemed like TJ people were in charge of this one. And *phonecrush emosob* still has me laughing as well. So. Awesome.

    nikkimantyla, you are so welcome. I look forward to her recaps so much. And I liked the book NEW MOON just fine.

  14. Living overseas is tough when it comes to movies. To watch a movie in English is a big deal, so I went to a screening with friends, for fun, for night out, for anything but a good movie.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
