Obsessions....this week!

The awesome Kelly at KellyVison started posting a weekly post highlighting whatever she happened to be obsessed with that week. I LOVE this idea, so much in fact that I will be doing it myself every Saturday.

So this week my obsessions are:


Trailer for Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I don't have a the video to post, but I will provide the link. This trailer is awesome. I am so excited to start this one. It looks fantastic, and I love that there are other fairytales to come in this series.

Kendare Blake's New Series

Kendare Blake announced a new three book series recently and I could not be more excited.
Kendare Blake's ANTIGODDESS series, where the ancient, perpetually teenaged Greek gods Athena and Hermes cling to life in the contemporary world, seeking the causes of their mysterious, slow deaths and gathering their allies in reincarnated form: Cassandra, an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess; Odysseus, the handsome trickster; and other fickle characters with their own secret motives; they must all band together against Hera and Poseidon who have become horrific caricatures of their former glory in their desperation to survive.
How amazing does this sound?! I am so excited to have this to look forward to once Girl of Nightmares is released. If you wish to know more you can find it on Goodreads.


The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This movie ended up being even more awesome than I thought it would be. The soundtrack/score is amazing. The acting by Rooney Mara was impressive. Her and Daniel Craig actually have a chemistry. She's strong, vulnerable, sensuous, and  troubled. Exactly what I expected Lisbeth to be. Her accent was quite good too. My best friend is Swedish (and lives there) and there were things in the movie that she says and does. I am looking forward to the other movies in the series now.



When this posts it'll be Christmas Eve, and I will be at my sister's house with three very excited little girls. My nieces are still very young and get really excited about everything so this is a huge deal to them.

I hope you all have a magical Christmas and that you get to spend it with family and loved ones.


  1. Kendare Blake is a writing GOD. haha. I can't wait for her new book series and the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood. As for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, while the Swedish will remain my favourite (cause I have a massive gal crush on Noomi Rapace), but I think the US version is going to rock too. Can't wait to see it!

  2. OMG I WANT THE ANTIGODDESS SERIES. I saw the tweets when it was announced, but couldn't find a synopsis at the time and then I forgot about it. So this is my first time reading it and... LOVE. I loved Anna Dressed In Blood, so I KNOW Kendare is going to pull this off. So excited!!


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
