Set your DVRs...

Georgia Nicolson is coming to the US! Finally!! I have been waiting for this movie forever. You've read my blogs about this series, I even got people signed up for the Georgia Nicolson reading challenge (which the Mr. Linky then broke for, so if you want to sign up or post a review, leave it in the comments please!). I think Georgia is fabbity fab fab and the books always make me laugh out loud. When the movie was released I was very excited to see it, but it never made it's way over here-until now.

On January 1st, Nickelodeon will be airing Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging at 7pm (Central Time). One of my very awesome teens told me about it and we squealed with delight. (Thanks Morgan-you rock!) I can't wait!

  3. I was in London when this came out and I so wanted to go! I've been reading Georgia since high school and I just had to see this movie. Sadly I couldn't find a theatre to see this while I was there, but it came out on redbox last Tuesday...I LOVED IT!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book!

Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
