  1. I'm not really a fan of Danny Boyle's work, other than the London Olympics opening ceremony which I thought was brilliant. I did watch Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game and thought he was brilliant. He's one of the best actors in this country. Enjoy your books!

  2. That illustration pictured from The Singing Bones is creep-adorbs; I've always had a soft spot for Grimm's Fairy Tales <3

    Welp, today at a big box store that shall not be named, I picked up the last copy of a book called The Cabin by Natasha Preston ... hope it's as good as the cover art ;D

  4. Love that cover on Today Will Be Different and it sounds good, too.

    Oh cool! Can't wait for your Jane Austenish event.

    The new Frankenstein looks great as I enjoy both Cumberpatch and Miller.
