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.

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running Pennyroyal Green series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is not actually my favorite book). But I've come to believe that this sweeping eleven-book series has something for every reader. You just have to dip your toes in enough times to find your favorites. And once you do, they will become instant and confirmed comfort reads. Spoiler alert: mine are It Happened One Midnightand What I Did for a Duke. I'm sorry, Colin, but the Duke of Falconbridge, you are not. You'll be just fine, though. Madeleine ha…

Review | More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

My online book group does a Secret Santa exchange every year, and this last year mine knocked it out of the park. She sent me a copy of Brigid Kemmerer's Letters to the Lost along with the most creative accompanying letter and series of clues and mementos tied to a fictional relationship not even wholly of this world. It tied in perfectly with the book and, once I read it, her creativity and extra mile effort meant that much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and immediately sought out the companion book featuring Declan's enigmatic best friend Rev. More Than We Can Tell begins shortly after the events of Letters to the Lost and, while Declan and Juliet are in the story, it focuses primarily on Rev and a new character named Emma Blue. I was already half in love with Rev Fletcher from the glimpses we get of him in the first book, so it was in no way surprising that I fell into his story without a hitch. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, though I think it is e…

Review | All the Walls of Belfast by Sarah J. Carlson

I have had a string of lovely successes with contemporaries lately. I wonder, sometimes, about the phases we go through, both in reading and in life in general and whether or not (or where) they align. I'm not always able to see the patterns amid the daily vicissitudes, but I wonder about them often. Several months ago, I saw the cover for Sarah J. Carlson's debut novel All the Walls of Belfast and thought I might have died and gone direct to heaven. The title alone is my favorite of the year, hands down. I don't even care if those are fighting words. It is the best title of the year, so there. And, happily, it has a cover to match that beauty, all orange and green and hints of the walls that make up its title. I could only hope that the content matched. Somehow I knew it had to.

Fiona grew up in America. From the time she was two years old and her mother took her and fled Northern Ireland for the unknown wilds of Wisconsin, she has believed that her father was dead. And …
