Bookish links for Saturday, December 18, 2010


Author links:

~ Amy at My Friend Amy has an interview with A.S. Peterson, author of The Fiddler’s Gun and Fiddler’s Green.

Discussion starters:

~ Pam at Bookalicious has been on a roll, giving us two hilarious videos: I am going to start a book blog and How I get followers.

~ From Amy: The Sticky Author and Blogger Relationship.

~ From Eva at A Striped Armchair: The Pleasures of Rereading.

~ From Jen at Literate Housewife: The Year Audiobooks Saved Me.

Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my to-read list:

~ Days of Grace by Catherine Hall, reviewed by Heather at Book Addiction.

~ A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French, reviewed by Raidergirl at An Adventure in Reading.

~ The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett, reviewed by Fyrefly at Fyrefly’s Book Blog – I looked up this review after seeing a conversation on twitter about this book, and it looks fantastic.

Book to movie news:

~ Sci Fi Chick has the full-length trailer for the film version of I Am Number Four.

~ Taylor Lautner has been attached to star as Finn in the film version of Catherine Fisher’s Incarceron. I thought the book was just okay, but I have a feeling that if it’s done well, it could translate into a terrific movie.
