Welome to my first Summing Up On Sunday! For lack of a better title, this is where I share with you all of the (mostly bookish) interesting bits and pieces I’ve bumbled across in the past week 🙂
First of all, here’s the first trailer for The Fault in Our Stars!!! Given that I’m already getting ALL THE FEELS just from a trailer, I can’t imagine what seeing the film is going to do to me!
Letting go of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak in The Sydney Morning Herald – he goes through his thought process in writing the book, his reasons for turning down the opportunity to write the screenplay, and having to let go of the book.
Buzzfeed strikes again, helping me to procrastinate when I need it most! 17 Reasons J.K. Rowling Should Seriously Consider Publishing A “Harry Potter” Prequel, 17 Reasons Mr. Darcy Isn’t Actually That Great (he totally is!) and the amazing drawings in 28 Things That Happened After The Harry Potter Books Ended helped get me through over the past week 🙂
Jeanette’s Formative Bookish Experiences (in GIFS!) on BOOK RIOT – I can totally relate to most of these! Also on BOOK RIOT, Throwing Away Your TBR List: A Radical Reading (un)Plan – I may have to seriously consider this, my TBR list only keeps getting longer and longer and it’s seriously in need of a cull.
Anne of Green Gables is being made into a webseries called Green Gables Fables, much like The Lizzie Bennett Diaries (which I also really need to watch!).
Back to the Future is being made into a musical in 2015 – I MUST HAVE THIS IN MY LIFE! Pity I don’t live in London…
And lastly, JK Rowling broke my heart by saying that she regrets Ron and Hermione’s relationship, preferring the relationship stylings of Hermione and Harry… Dude! Not cool!
