Week in Review, November 4th 26

inthepeppermintwind:curlycurvynotquitestraight:Tardis Fridge.I want this more than is healthy.BIGGER ON THE INSIDEMORE FOODYESSSSSConsidering how I pretty much just started blogging again, there isn’t much to tell, but for the sake of my OCD, I do need to post a little recap. I still need to get my blogging-shoes back on, and I’m the crappiest reader ever, considering how much time I have. I’ll blame it on the weather. It’s just so grey and depressing, really.

I wish my brain was like the Tardis. Or maybe just my refrigerator. I mean, the refrigerator > tardis, not my brain > refrigerator. Whatever, look, Lizzie Bennet replied to a tweet of mine.

But on to the actual recap..

I posted a Challenge-placeholder, my “I’m back” post and giveaway, answered a Friday question about what’s a deal-breaker in books for me, and now the post I’m writing here. Before, I posted two test-posts, one of which is a review of Cry of Despair, which was just an amazing book.

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Hardcover)I read three books: Iced by Karen Marie Moning, which was way better than I had expected. Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks, which was amusing enough, but didn’t have enough substance to blow me of my feet, and Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones, which almost made my head explode.. in the good way.

I watched my series like the good addict that I am, and fell in love with Claire Holt’s and Joseph Morgan’s acting in The Five (Vampire Diaries) all over again. While the rest of the episode didn’t manage to make me feel very much, those two did really shine. The last Supernatural episode, Blood Brother,  was amazing, too.  Never would have thought that Season 8 would actually be good, but right now the majority of the episodes that have been aired already, were great. But my absolute highlight was the Castle episode, Probably Cause. I thought the last 10 minutes were a little too fast-paced in comparison to the rest (why not make it a 2-episode-arc?) but eeeh, I just loved it.

But wait, that was actually a lie. My real highlight was all the Darcy anticipation. I’ve embedded Staff Spirit, below, because I couldn’t help myself.

What about all of you? I hope you’ve read or purchased great books, had an amazing halloween, were safe and dry. If you’re from the United States and allowed to vote, I hope you have gotten registered, and if you are a puppy-sized elephant, come to me so I can bribe certain individuals into letting me see the next LBD episodes earlier. #i am crey

Until next week, and don’t forget to be awesome.

    OMG, that TARDIS fridge! *brb writing to Santa*

    I feel like I’m the only person who doesn’t watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries… I’ve seen some stuff on tumblr, but generally I have no idea what it’s about.

      Yes, right? Just imagine.. If it’s bigger on the inside, how much food will there be in that fridge? There’s a library and a pool and whatnot in the Tardis, so..

      The Lizzie Bennet Diaries were created by vlogbrother Hank Green and Bernie Su. It’s a modern adaption of Pride and Prejudice, in which Lizzie is a 24 year old student and videoblogger, Jane is a fashionblogger, Lydia is Lydia, Mary is a cousin, Kitty is an actual cat, Mister Bingley is now Bing Lee (and Asian and cute and everything I’ve ever wanted in my whole entire life, come here, Bing Lee!) and so on.

      The characters have twitter, facebook, lookbook, tumblr etc. accounts, and interact with eachother and the fans. The story is told in Lizzie’s vlogs, but also in some vlogs from Lydia, in tweets, and so on. It’s actually a great concept. A new video is posted every Mon and Thursday, each video is 2 1/2-5 minutes long.

      And if you don’t start watching them right away, I’ll hunt you down.

        Yesss it’s like the dream fridge! But let’s not talk about food because I’m at school and I’m hungry. lol

        Wow, that sounds cool. I didn’t know Hank was involved. The idea is really interesting, P&P as a m0dern day vlog story. I promise I’ll start watching, don’t hunt me down :D

    That fridge is just awesome!

    I really enjoyed the last episode of Supernatural, I’m a bit surprised this season is as good as it is. The last season had it’s awesome moment but it fell a bit short…personally I’m just happy to have a bit of Cas back.

    Thank you for stopping by!

      Same here. I was more and more disappointed by how everything went down on Supernatural, so it surprised me very much to see this season being more promising.

      Thank you for returning the favor!

    Hi Patricia, welcome back to blogging! Thanks for visiting my blog, no I haven’t read and reviewed Iced yet, won’t be until Feb for Fire and Ice, but I did review Fourth Grave and loved it! It is grey and depressing here, too…Portland Oregon’s rains have begun…sigh…here’s to a long winter.

    • Reply Patricia Nov 6, 2012 12:51 pm

      Oh, I wish I had waited and read Iced later. Now I can’t wait for the next one. ;_; Same, I loved Fourth Grave! <3

      Aw, that sucks. :C Yeah, *raises glass*

    I am soooo behind on the Lizzy series, thanks for reminding me :) I sure got catching up to do

    Hmm, I’m pretty jealous you’ve already read Iced. I haven’t had the money yet to order it so it will probably be around Christmas that I finally get it. Glad to hear it was better than you were expecting though (: I hope you’re having a great week as well!

    • Reply Patricia Nov 6, 2012 12:57 pm

      Oh no, that sucks! :C Hm, enter the giveaway and if you win, you buy it with the 20$ TBD-order-thing I’m giving away? ;D /shamelessly promoting

      Thank you!

        Well, the shameless promotion worked!

        By the way, could you send me your postal address on email (nyxbookreviews(at)gmail.com) or DM it to me on Twitter or something? I have a terrible postcard that just wants to cross the German border to you.

    Glad your back!! Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet!!! Ohhh I still need to read the third book.
    I was laughing at your comment about Don’t Ever Peak. I was really curious what the heck that mean too! It is because the aliens come into your room every night to take nutrients for you and you are not allowed to look. You have to wear an eye patch lol

    • Reply Patricia Nov 6, 2012 12:58 pm

      What the fuck? What? WHAT? Aliens come into your room.. Wait, why do I have this mental picture of Robert Pattinson in my mind? Okay, I kinda want to read it, but I also kinda don’t want to at all. o.o XD

      Thank you for stopping by and clearing that up! :*

    Welcome back. Looks like you had some really good reads this past week.

    Hahahaha I love Lizzie Bennet Diaries!!!

    Anyway, welcome back!

    I still need to try Charley Davidson series.

    And yeah, I was dying to see Darcy, too, and I’m actually on the verge of reading P&P again, and yeah, Castle was awesome, actually this whole season so far has been amazing!!!

    • Reply Patricia Nov 8, 2012 9:54 am

      Thank you! <3

      The LBD are soo great! <3 And definitely agree on Castle. Most tv shows are better than I expected this season, to be totally honest.

      Well, I hope you’ll enjoy the Charley Davidson novels once/if you read them! :)
