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?"

  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 | 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 …

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 …
