Morning blogopshere! Here is my weekly collection of links (pretty much anything I've found funny/interesting/weird) to keep you busy over your morning (or evening) coffee. Enjoy!
♥ The Boston Bibliophile has the first part of her upcoming series on The Essentials for a Home Library
♥ Pope Benedict XVI publishes a children's book
♥ For all the Gleeks, check out this sneak peek of the upcoming Glee novelisation. Whilst it's no secret, I'm kind of a huge Gleek (and I know I'm not the target audience for this novel) but it does not read well. It sort of looks like it's been taken from Fan Fiction.net
♥ Ohhh, look at this little girl's adorable reading nook! More cute reading spots for kids - I love decor blogs.
♥ The Wakefield twins from Sweet Valley are making a comeback! Sweet Valley Confidential revisits Elizabeth and Jessica, who are now twenty-seven and not on speaking terms. I'm looking forward to seeing how Francine Pascal breathes new life into the series. You can sign up to read the first chapter here.
♥ Girls on Film: Ellen Page, Gender and Cinematic Sexuality is an amazing read from Cinematical.
♥ Have you been following Adele's Top 100 YA Novels? You should! Be warned though, this blog will make your to-read list grow enormously!
♥ Speaking of awesome, butt-kicking girls, Jamie who is responsible for The Seventeen Magazine Project I posted about last week has a new site Teenagerie - dedicated to analysing and critically discussing all things related to adolescence.Jamie says "my hopes for this blog are that it will be productive in promoting discussions surrounding the important questions about adolescence, which range from What are today's teens really like? to How accurate is the media in portraying these representations?"
♥ One of my favourite films, Heathers, has been adapted for the stage, to debut at Joe's Pub in September.
