Weekly Update [2]

Dishing about all the stuff that happened during the week and all the new books on our shelves!

WHAT WENT DOWN

  • Villain of the Day: The Darkling from Shadow and Bone! We choose our dream cast for the one of the best villains in YA.                                                                                                                                                       
  • Battle of the Heroes: Etienne St. Clair v. Cricket Bell. We pitted Stephanie Perkins' swoon-worthy male characters against one another.                                                                                                                                                                                       
  • Tracey, our romance expert, reviewed Tijan's Broken and Screwed and gave it 5 "Come Again" Kisses!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  •  Cover Reveal: Laura Beege's Always Tomorrow gets a cover! Love new adult, then you need to check this one out :)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
  • Movie Review: We reviewed Short Term 12, an indie film with emotion and heart, and gave it an A-                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  • TV is back in action and Becca has posted recaps for The OriginalsThe Tomorrow People, and Reign over at CW Atlanta. BTW -- The Originals is starting to become HORRIBLE. Like what the hell are they thinking? It's so boring. The Tomorrow People makes up for it. Best show EVAH!                                                                                                                                                                                      

What We Read and Watched

We try to watch movies and read books as much as possible. Usually time inhibits us from doing both in one week.
  • We went to the movie theater twice this week. We saw LONE SURVIVOR and DALLAS BUYERS CLUB. Both were really good, and we would highly recommend them.                                                              
  • We haven't finished any books this week. But I'm almost done with The Beginning of Everything. And it's probably going to get 5 stars from me. Becca is almost done with Lynetta Halat's Used, and she says it's a 5 star read as well :)                        


What's New On Our Shelves

Only a couple books this week. But the ones we got, we're super excited about. 
  • I'm in a super contemporary kick, so big thanks to Erin for trading with me. I got Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Lynn Shaw                                                                                                                                               
  • Becca grabbed a copy of Mia Sheridan's new book, Archer's Voice

  1. OHHHHH!!!! I was so excited to read Breaking Beautiful, but for some reason didn't pick it up, though I do have an e-copy. I think. Anyhow, I can't wait to see what you think :)
