SUCH a great read. I need more Kelley!

I really hope no wookies were harmed in the making of this rug.

Who the hell wants to go to Westeros? Like…”Y’know what I want…some place where the bounty of the long-summer has been squandered and Winter is Coming..a place where your closest friends are either being shipped off to war or are already dead. And if there was an army of fucking frozen zombies riding undead elephants, bears, and direwolves, beating down the border, that would also be awesome…”

Before even reading the above ^^, I was thinking, “why would I want to go to Westeros?” Like really.

Rose is most likely the only one to truly appreciate his choice of song during karaoke night at their local pub…—
Here, have a more silly Tentoo Adventure ;)
During a vist from greatspacedustbin, we ended up watching a DW crack video and giggled madly at this scene, after which the idea of Tentoo singing Gotye’s "Somebody that I used to know" during karaoke was born.She suggested turning it into a Tentoo Adventure, so here you go ;D

Hilarious

My name is Zadie Smith, and I am a 38-year-old pathological reader. I would like to say in my defense that I don’t really get the appeal of YOLO. I live many times over. Hypothetical, subterranean lives that run beneath the relative tedium of my own and have the power to occasionally penetrate or even derail it. I find it hard to name the one book that was so damn delightful it changed my life. The truth is, they have all changed my life, every single one of them—even the ones I hated. Books are my version of ‘experiences.’”

What It Means to Be Addicted to Reading: Summer is a wonderful time for the bibliophile.

I love this.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

5/5

Woah. WHAT?!

First off, Gone Girl is probably the best book I have read so far this year. I was hooked from page one and blew through it in about 24 hours, I just couldn’t put it down. I’m not usually one for mysteries, but I had it recommended to me last year sometime and bought it. I wish I had read it sooner because it was SO GOOD.

Gone Girl starts off with the disappearance of Amy Dunne, who seems to have been abducted from her home that she shares with husband, Nick Dunne. Now, Flynn has chosen an interesting way of telling this story. She doesn’t just alternate POVs between Amy and Nick, but actually between past Amy (pre-gone) and present Nick (post-gone). I thought this was an interesting way to develop the story because it gives insight into each person at different times of their life and makes their individual bias toward their relationship obvious to the reader.

That said, about half way through there is a huge, juicy plot twist that has everything to do with the alternating POVs. I was completely thrown off guard. I mean, I was expecting a twist because these types of mysteries usually have one, but SERIOUSLY. I’m pretty sure I gasped out loud. Not to give too much away, but the book (and the characters) take on a whole new identity which makes me think that Flynn is either a genius or a psychopath (or maybe a bit of both).
