Thursday Giggles: Girl Power Version

First, I thought that a single twitter reference on my part to this bit of awesomeness would suffice, but I've been unable to stop laughing since I read it a couple of days ago. You've probably seen it already, but in case you haven't, I point you to Ilona Andrews' What-If Kate Daniels Twitter. You're welcome.
And second, in case you haven't had a chance to watch this hysterical fake commercial for Brontë Power Dolls yet, now is your chance. It's basically the best thing ever. I call dibs on Anne! (Thanks to Meg Cabot for the link.)

  5. I am SO EXCITED for Magic Bleeds at the end of the month. The Kate/Jim/Curran twitter made me want it even more. I may have to do a quick re-read of the series to get my fix. :)

  11. Angie, where is that art from? That's art I've seen on a cover before, but it wasn't Ilona's.

  12. Diana, that's the image Ilona has had up on her site under Kate's profile for awhile now here.. But, you know, I saw it on a different book's cover as well just recently. I was like, hey, it's Kate! Can't remember which one now...

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
