Friday Link Dump: Flowers in the Attic, Fairy Bread Cake and Feminism in Game of Thrones

-The teaser for the upcoming adaptation of Flowers in the Attic is here and it looks terribly good. (BuzzFeed)

-The Divergent trailer is also here and Theo James looks spunky but the whole thing is rather underwhelming. Although I'm not a big fan of the book. (YouTube)

-How strong female characters come at the expense of women. (Zero at the Bone)

-On feminism in Game of Thrones. I totally agree with this article. (Melicious)

-Amazon has launched a Kindle store for Australia, which sounds exciting, but doesn't appear that different to what we already had access to. (Lifehacker)

-Apparently there is a 10 Things I Hate About You spin-off in the works. I am concerned. (ASOS)

-So I finally started watching Misfits this week and I am completely obssessed and OMG I have so many FEELS and this is my new favourite Tumblr (season two spoiler alert!). (Tumblr)

-This story of what happened when a war veteran died with nobody to attend his funeral gave me goosebumps. (BuzzFeed)

-Pug puppies are possibly my favourite thing in the world. (BuzzFeed)

-The parents behind Dinovember are THE BEST EVER. (BuzzFeed)

-These toys are completely horrific and bad ideas all round. Also hilarious. (Distractify)

-Here is why you are so addicted to Candy Crush, as explained by psychologists and the designers of the game. Also: did you know they made Level 65 easier after people complained about how hard it was? (Time)

-Nick Offerman's latest Movember ad is the greatest thing you'll watch all week. Or ever. (YouTube)

-Closely followed by this seal pup freaking out about getting into water. I didn't know seals sounded like that. (YouTube)

-This fairy bread cake looks amazeballs. I want someone to make it for me so I can look at it and love it and probably eat a lot of it. (Spicy Icecream)


  1. I can't decide whether or not to read Divergent. I felt like it might be too Hunger Games-y but the new trailer makes it seem like something I should maybe get into. Have you read it?

    Also, I am so in for the Flowers in the Attic film. It looks deliciously over the top!

    1. I did. It's OK. I much prefer The Hunger Games. Don't quite get the hype around Divergent TBH.

    1. I had to take a bit of a break because it was taking over my life haha
