Novel Links

Another round of weekly links for you. This one's a good one, if I do say so myself.  

I have to start with this. So many things to love in this interview with Mindy Kaling and Billy Crystal. Great talk about love, writing and When Harry Met Sally. Just wonderful.

And along the lines of truly good love stories, I finally got around to watching About Time, and I highly recommend it. It squeezes your heart a little, just like a real-life love story.

I'll take Hemingway's bedroom. Please and thank you.

I'm a firm believer in taking a break from work to indulge in yourself, and science agrees. A new study says that the more you engage in creative activities outside of work, the better your performance at work will be. So keep knitting.

I love this funny trick of rewriting headlines without sexism. Woman has legs!

We're hearing a lot from John Green lately, and I like what he has to say about young adult fiction.

And finally, look at these angry baby lions learning to swim. They're so vocal!

Enjoy the downhill portion of the week!

Novel Links

Another round of weekly links! On the bookish side this time.  

I could go on and on about my love for Out of Print Clothing, but I'll save that for another post. And their newest library collection? Swoon.

TIME Magazine's list of the 21 female authors you should be reading.

All book lovers need good totes, and HuffPo has a nice roundup of totes for book lovers.

Gotta love a good infographic, like this one showing the most read books in the world.

All of my dreams are coming true!

The trailer is out for the movie adaptation of Gayle Forman's If I Stay. I didn't love the book the way others did, but the movie looks interesting.

And a little BuzzFeed quiz fun. How much of a book addict are you?

We're halfway through the week. Cheers!

Novel Links

Similar to other link roundups around the web, I've decided to share novel links on Wednesday, be they novel-related or novel in general (see what I did there?). Without further ado, your novel links for the week:  

An interesting discussion about books by female authors, recommended by female authors from Elle. More of this, pretty please.

I just finished reading Lexicon by Max Barry. It's such a novel concept, but the ending, and some of the characters, fell a little flat for me.

I'm now reading a galley of Worst. Person. Ever. by Douglas Coupland. I'll let you know how it goes.

Interested in adding up your Instagram follow list? Epic Reads compiled a list of 19 Young Adult Authors to Follow on Instagram.

In preparing for our trip to Spain (eeeee!) I'm watching these DVDs and laughing hysterically. Also, Claudia Bassols is divine.

Enjoy a bevy of wonderful tweets from the charming Anna Kendrick. I suspect she's my long-lost best friend.

This video of Kristen Bell singing "Do You Want To Build A Snowman" is perfection.

My favorite cooking blog, The Kitchn, just started a series on The 9-Bottle Bar, and it is wonderful.
