Friday Link Dump: Bookish Manicures, Game of Thrones Videos and Cute Babies


-Mandee from Vegan YA Nerds has created a new blog dedicated to her book-inspired manicures. They're amazing.

-Mandee has also teamed up with Rey and Trinity for a brilliant podcast called Ladies of YA.

-Cuddlebuggery has a new feature: In 10 Lines. Their first micro-summary is for Hush, Hush. It's predictably hilarious.

-This is what Game of Thrones would have looked like if it came out in 1995. And this is what it would look like if it was set in a modern high school.

-Zoe Kravitz will give her dad a run for his dystopian money after being cast in Divergent.

-I giggled at Book Riot's post on whether popular YA is secretly fanfiction.

-YA Highway has a great post about writing through depression.

-Laini Taylor's post about her brain being a jerk is a bit old but still brilliant.

-The blogging world has had a bit if a meltdown this week over news that Google is killing its Reader in a couple of months. Here's a handy lists of the alternatives.

-You've heard of Better Book Titles, but now there's alternate movie titles to keep us entertained.

-This talented dude harmonises (with himself) about what happened to the Disney princesses after their Happily Ever After. It's pretty great.

-The trailer for Kick-Ass 2 is here and I am excited.


-A law-defying artist has taken to defiling decorating five dollar notes in creative ways.

-I'm not the only one who had a mad crush on Devon Sawa as a pre-teen. That spin!

-Ever wondered about all the things Carrie wondered about on Sex and the City? Wonder no more. Here's a list of them all.

-Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon performed a barbershop quarter version of Sexyback and it was great.

-Cute babies being cute and discovering new things about the world are pretty, well, cute.

-Buzzfeed gives evidence for what we already know: Zac Efron is perfect.

-So this is what dogs get up to when they're home alone.

-Cadbury Cream Egg pudding. 'Nuff said.

  1. So many links this week!

    I love the Game of Thrones/highschool clip - it looks like it'll legitimately be an awesome web-series.

  2. That is an awesome list of GR alternatives. I need to take more time to go through it, but the frustration I'm running into is that so many of those things are apps! I want something I can access on any old computer with the internet, you know?

    Also, yayyyyy Kick-Ass 2!!!

  3. So many good links this week, Belle! First things first, I am in total awe of Mandee's amazing nailart. I wish I had a steady hand and some artistic talent, to boot! Secondly, I'm really excited to see how Zoe Kratvitz does as Christina in the Divergent movie. It'll be interested to see how everything plays out on screen (and hopefully we'll both enjoy the movie more than we did the book)!

    Google sucks for discontinuing its use of Reader. I use google for EVERYTHING, so to integrate another site into my daily web routine is such a hassle. I've been using Bloglovin' since I was running my other blog so I suppose I'll just stick with that. What do you plan to do?

    I liked Devin Sawa but I LOOOOOOOVED Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Swoon! Have a wonderful weekend, lady!
