Yes, yes, I love the book trailers. I spent many many hours at my desk looking for amazing books trailers that inspire me to read a new book or explore a new author. Some authors will also have clips of their talking about their latest novel, and I am a... Continue reading

There was a rumour a couple of years ago that she wanted to write an Adult mystery, I wonder now if there is any truth to that.

Did everyone hear about J.K. Rowling has a new book in the works? I must admit that I jumped around my office with glee when I heard the news, and I couldn't believe my twitter feed. Mind you, this isn't a new Harry Potter storyline or will even be a... Continue reading

I love Sarah Dessen. I read it immediately when it came out. I love how she will find ways to reincorporate some of her old characters/settings into her novels.

Tiger Eyes is one of my favourite books. I remember reading it in grade 8. I found in my teacher's book display, and she just let me read it while the class was going on. I couldn't put it down..

13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher is an AMAZING book. I loved it so much, and cried so hard.. It is so gut wrenching that you know that no matter what Clay does, it won't change the ending. great pick!

I completely agree, harry potter 4 and 5 were....choppy, I guess is the right word for it. I found that if you didn't read the book that the viewer had NO IDEA what was going on. Although I did really like how they kept the escape of the twins in the movie. total nerd fact. the same guy who wrote the first three didn't write 4 and 5, but came back to write the rest of them.

ooh, Ash, this is a good post. I think that the most perfectly casted film is still the Harry Potter Series. Alan Rickman as Snape was PERFECT.. and I could gush on and on about that. Just about how I could talk about the Twilight Casting, but I'll bite my tongue...for now. Speaking of biting...I would just like to add for all of those zombies fans out there, that they are also now filming Max Brook's Epic, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, with Brad Pitt (by the way, an excellent choice, although, I could have gone with Johnny Depp as well as the lead) http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/detail.jsp?Entt=RDM606954&R=606954 For all of those who like Zombies books or even a military books, I would definitely check this one out. I died and came back several times when I heard this.

Dear SS, that is why TPL has the paperback collection. Although they are not catalogued, you can normally skip the line. I would like to compare paperbacks to thrift store shopping. To get at the very good stuff, you need patience and to dig around; It is the thrill of the hunt, you know
