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.

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …
