Fun & Fashion Around the Blogosphere

Rachel @ Parajunkee has created a Bad Book Bingo Game. Featuring boxes such as affect vs. effect, adverb abuse, cliches, POV confusion and more things that make a book bad, she has both a bingo board and a list you can keep with your book as you read. Try it for fun and post when you get a bingo.

Last Sunday the Emmys were on TV and many people watched the show and the red carpet to see the gorgeous gowns. Jamie Canaves from Book Riot decided to Book Accessorize the Emmys. Couture and literature, what could be better?

Jarry Lee gives us 24 Books That Perfectly Match NY Fashion Week Looks on BuzzFeed. For someone who is a book cover magpie like me, this was heaven!

  1. Nora Roberts’ Land by Ava Miles … okay, I’m definitely looking that one up. Ha- that Bad Book Bingo. Sounds fun. I remember when there was one for book cliches going around years ago.

  2. I laughed reading Parajunkee’s post and the bingo card. I’m sorely tempted to do a review using only that card; I just need the right, or is that wrong, book. 😀

    I have Nora Roberts Land sitting on my Kindle. How was it? Did you like it? The Prince of Prigs has an interesting title and cover; I’m curious.

    Happy reading and have a good week.

  3. Love all of the links you’ve shared this week Elizabeth. I’d never think to accessorise books to outfits etc. Also like the idea of bad book bingo though haven’t read a lot of books with too many problems of late. Do you find it’s more of an issue with smaller publishers or self-published books which haven’t been edited to death?

    • Good point, Deb! I am finding a lot of these problems with newer writers at smaller presses. And for me most are cozy mysteries, but I know that’s not one of Parajunkee’s genres, so it’s probably just the small presses.

  4. Love the Buzzfeed matching of dresses to covers – they did a fantastic job, thanks for sharing. I wasn’t near a TV for the Emmy’s, but did enjoy the Fashion Police show for it.

  5. You’ve done great on the reading and reviews. I’m trying to catch up on the reviews but the reading has been nonstop. Here’s to another great week!

  6. Good Saturday morning! I have Nora Roberts Land siting on my Kindle. I’ll be interested in hearing what you thought. I enjoyed looking through what you’ve been reading. The bad thing is that I am easily influenced! Have a good week.
