The Majestic Collection (1)

Sometimes I'm emailed about interesting bookish things or stumble across cool posts, but I have nowhere to share them. So, I've decided to make a digital cork board of sorts in order to effectively share links and news!

Discussions / Blog Posts

Pirate Penguin's Reads discusses how your reading taste changes over time (strangely, I had the same experience with the same novel).

Aylee from Recovering Potter Addict features the top ten unique and beautiful uses of typography on covers - and I basically want to own posters of all of them. 

Giveaways You Shouldn't Miss!

Ashley Poston (author of The Sound of Us) is celebrating the Spark imprint with an epic giveaway for a Kindle Paperwhite loaded with twelve Bloomsbury Spark titles! Hurry and enter, it ends soon!

Film and TV News

The 5th Wave film has some new casting announcements!

Also, the pilot for Delirium  aired on Hulu (watch while you can, I'm not sure how long it will be available). I had some mixed thoughts about it.

For more movie news, check out Bloggers Heart Books From Page to Screen feature!

Other Bookish Links

The movie tie-in covers for both The Maze Runner and Inside the Maze Runner: The Guide to the Glade were released (loving the novel cover)! Check out the movie trailer on YouTube.


Marissa Meyer has a new book coming out in the Lunar Chronicles series - Fairest, which tells Queen Levana's story! Fierce Reads hosted a Fairest Q&A with Marissa Meyer to let readers learn more about it. Fairest releases January 27th, 2015 - so close, yet so far!

Jodi Lynn Anderson's Tiger Lily is $1.99 for Kindle - grab it while you can, it's a fabulous book!


  1. I loved the cover for the new Queen Levana story!

    I have to go check out those links now…

    Karen @ For What It's Worth

    1. Agreed! The fiery mirror, Queen Levana's veiled's a great cover!

  2. Ohh, I love this post :D Hope you will do more like it. <3 Awesome bookish news too :) Thank you for sharing. <3

  3. Did blogger eat my comment? I had written one and hit PUBLISH but I guess it didn't go through.

    Anyway, thank you for including me in your first post! :) Yeah, I think HH is one of those books that you realize is not THAT great after a while. I remember way back when some people's reviews where negative and I thought, "What! Why?" Now I shake my head and go, "I agree! What was younger me thinking?!"

    1. Sometimes Blogger likes to be mean :(

      My pleasure - I loved your post! I'm with you on HH. It kind of makes me wonder what other books I'd think differently about now that it's been a few years and I've read more!

    2. That it does :( it makes me regret not going to wordpress first but oh well...

      I'm so happy to hear that! I plan to do a lot more discussion posts--I wish I would've done them sooner. Oh well, you live and learn ;)

      Yes, it does make you wonder. You could always reread books if you wanted but that can be hard when there are so many new books on the horizon.

    3. I always hear how great wordpress is. If I'd have known about it years ago, I would have went with them to begin with! But I'm stuck with blogger, if only because I don't want to deal with the hassle of switching without screwing up my blog ;)

      Looking forward to any new discussion posts! I definitely need to do more, I can't even remember the last one I had. But discussion posts are always so fun to read!

      Agreed! I tend to only reread absolute favorites, just because there isn't enough time to reread them all. The one downside of being a blogger - it's hard to find time to reread when you're always trying to read something new!
