An Evening with David Sedaris: Theft by Finding

An Evening with David Sedaris: Theft by Finding

Well Hello, Bookworms! I thought I’d catch you up on what I’ve been doing, or more accurately, what I was doing in late April. I’ve always had a soft spot for David Sedaris and his quirky essays (here’s a review from a while back.) Of course, his humor and tone aren’t for everyone (as evidenced by the friend to whom I loaned Me Talk Pretty One Day who was UNIMPRESSED… Read more »

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Hello Bookworms, I’ve told you how much I love Rainbow Rowell before, right? In case you missed my reviews of Attachments, Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Landline, you can check them out here, here, here, and here. After devouring Landline much too quickly, I decided I’d wait on reading Rowell’s next release. Instead of begging the publisher for an advanced copy, I put myself on a seemingly endless library wait… Read more »

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Cheerio Bookworms! This may come as a shock to you, but I have a crush on… England. My feelings on the subject can be summed up in the immortal speech Hugh Grant as Prime Minister gives in Love Actually. “We may be a small country, but we’re a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter. David Beckham’s right foot. David Beckham’s left foot, come to that.”… Read more »

It’s a Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes (Top Ten Tuesday)

It’s a Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes (Top Ten Tuesday)

Helloooooo Bookworms! Valentine’s Day is creeping up and the gals from The Broke and the Bookish have offered up a Valentine’s themed freebie topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. I’m a sucker for romantic comedies, I’ll own up to it. I dig love stories with impossibly ridiculous premises in my movies… And in my books. Let’s talk literary rom-coms, shall we? I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella (review)- Suspension… Read more »

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Howdy Howdy Bookworms! Y’all know I’m a sucker for audio books and celebrity memoirs… But only funny celebrities, because the amount I don’t want to read about some celebutaunt’s spiritual awakening is STAGGERING. But. Basically anyone who was a regular on Parks & Recreation who writes a book? I will give that a whirl. (I haven’t gotten to your books yet, Ron Swanson, but I will one day. One day when… Read more »

Bream Gives Me Hiccups by Jesse Eisenberg

Bream Gives Me Hiccups by Jesse Eisenberg

Greetings Bookworms! Have I ever mentioned my celebrity crush? I enjoy a handsome fellow with a hunky torso as much as the next girl, but I’ve got a thing for nerdy types. I can’t remember the first movie I saw with Jesse Eisenberg… The Social Network? Zombieland? It doesn’t matter. What matters is that I was smitten with the curly locks and snarky dialogue he delivered so well. Siiiiigh. I… Read more »

Words for Worms Rewind: I Just Don’t Get It. Keep it Copasetic.

Words for Worms Rewind: I Just Don’t Get It. Keep it Copasetic.

Hi Ho Bookworms! Today I’m turning back the clock again, because I’ve still got some posts that were devoured by the internet’s gaping maw during my blog transfer to self-hosting many moons ago. I’ve been peppering them in here and there so my genius isn’t lost. That, and I’ve been extremely lazy lately and these posts are ALREADY WRITTEN and basically nobody ever read them. So. Welcome to my brain… Read more »

I Don’t Know Where You Know Me From by Judy Greer

I Don’t Know Where You Know Me From by Judy Greer

Hola Bookworms! After the roaring win that was Aisha Tyler’s memoir Self-Inflicted Wounds (because audio books read by the author are the best), I thought I’d visit the memoir of Tyler’s Archer* co-star (and co-star to, well, everyone) Judy Greer. You know the adorable best friend in every successful rom-com ever? That’s Judy Greer! She wrote a book called I Don’t Know What You Know Me From in which she discusses all… Read more »

Self Inflicted Wounds and Why Aisha Tyler is My New BFF

Self Inflicted Wounds and Why Aisha Tyler is My New BFF

Greetings Bookworms, I love a good celebrity memoir. It can be a tricky business, though. Sometimes you’ll pick up a celebrity memoir and the celeb will be unfunny, self important, and/or preachy. All that is GREAT if you’re hate-reading, but it can be a huge disappointment when it’s a celebrity you think is awesome. Kind of bursts the bubble, you know? Luckily, the opposite can happen. For example. Aisha Tyler…. Read more »

Literary Love Connection: Sinners and Saints

Literary Love Connection: Sinners and Saints

Greetings Bookworms, It’s been a while since I set any fictional characters up on a date, and the time has come. As you recall, the rules for Literary Love Connection are simple. I choose two fictional characters. I send them on a fake date. I watch imaginary sparks fly. Who will join Snaponine, Scarcliff, Minurtagh, and Arigo in the mildly disturbing ranks of my oddball couples? Read on, my friends! Today’s… Read more »
