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.

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …
