Wednesday Giggles: Sparklepire Version

It's that time of year again. We welcome the wonderful Cleolinda's Eclipse in 15 Minutes. I laughed helplessly over her version of New Moon last December, and her Harry Potter parodies--especially The Prisoner of Azkaban in 15 Minutes--are screamingly funny. If you've seen Eclipse already, I do recommend going to read Cleo's version immediately. For all your sparklepush and the wereshove needs. Happy Wednesday!

Oh, and if you saw the film (as I did), what'd you think?

  1. Oh, I'm off to read it right now. I loved her New Moon in 15 minutes. I've never seen the movies (didn't really care for Twilight, the book), but these posts are entertaining!

  2. I actually have been looking forward to reading this for a while. Thank you for introducing me to the hilarity!

    I saw the movie. It was good...for what it was. But Jasper still really just bugs me. His hair has improved somewhat, but he always looks like he has a stick somewhere a stick shouldn't be. Edward was better this time, and the whole tent scene between him and Jacob was perfect. It's not often a movie adaptation gets something so close to my imagination, but that did it.

  4. Have you seen Eclipse with cats by popsuede? You can see it over here. So hilarious! Let me click on your link of Eclipse in 15 minutes. I have a feeling I'm going to like it as well.

    I did watch the movie with two friends. I watched Twilight and New Moon with both of them and it has become a tradition now. We will finish watching the movies all together. They didn't read the books so they kept asking me during the movie, "Did that really happen in the book?"

  5. Thanks for the link! I hadn't heard of this site, but it was hilarious!

  6. I've only seen the first Twilight movie, I'm just so sceptical to the others because I thought it sucked :( I will watch them one day though and then I will watch this clip :D

  7. Brenda, they certainly are. I admire that amount of talent, I really do. A good parody is so hard to craft.

    Allie, Jasper's hair...*sigh* It appears to be unstoppable. And unflappable. And all sorts of other inappropriate hair uns. Agree on the tent scene. Also enjoyed the final Bella/Jacob kiss. ;)

    elizabeth, my pleasure. hehe.

    Chachic, lol. That's funny. It's true that the main enjoyment in watching these movies is the experience of watching it together with your friends. So you can laugh and talk and generally live it up.

    Jen, oh man. Cleo is awesome. Definitely check out her HP parodies.

    Ladybug, sounds like a plan. For what it's worth, the second two are quite different from the first. Not saying they're better. Just different. :)

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

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 1a 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 are likel…

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 …
