7 Songs That Need to be Books and the Authors Who Should Write Them

I’ve always been drawn to music with well-written lyrics that tell a story. And just like books, sometimes (ok, a lot of times) I listen to a song and it leaves me wanting more. Not just more music, but more of the story. The guy shows up at her house…OK NOW WHAT. I need to know. Are they together? Did she kick his ass? Do we get a song from his POV now? These are just a few songs that weave an excellent narrative and that I believe could be translated easily into books and the author who shoul

First Photo From Wonder Woman Sequel Revealed

If you were distraught over the ending to the Wonder Woman movie, I (via Patty Jenkins) have some fantabulous news for you… As all you Pine Nuts remember, the ruggedly handsome pilot Steve Trevor heroically sacrificed himself at the end of the first Wonder Woman movie, shattering the hearts of people around the globe. Well. As you can see, it looks like Mr. Trevor makes a miraculous recovery. But anyone who knows Pine signed a multi-picture deal could have predicted that. Also, because you ALW

Bookly App: Worth a Try for Stats-Loving Readers

I’ve been using the Bookly app to help track my reading habits for almost a year, and I’ve had a generally positive experience. Bookly isn’t quite making the rounds as much as Goodreads or Litsy yet, but it’s a truly useful tool for those of us who delight in knowing our reading stats. Here’s what you need to know: Similar to other book and reading apps, you can search for your book in Bookly’s database. But what’s great this app is that if your book isn’t there, you can add it yourself immedi

How Do Books Really Make Us Feel? Rioters Use Predictive Text

After getting inspiration from a fellow book blogger, I took to Twitter to see how Rioters would answer this prompt: Books make me… The results were short and sweet, profound, and just plain funny. Some non-Rioters even got in on the action: How do books really make you feel? To add yours, turn on the predictive text setting and type “Books make me” into a blank message and keep clicking on your suggested words until you make a sentence. The starter thread is here. Can’t wait to see the rest

First Time With Graphic Novels: How I Lost My Graphic Novel Virginity

Confession: I am 27 years old and up until approximately 11pm last night, had never read a comic or graphic novel. Ok, let me backtrack just a tad. I read the odd comic strip in the Sunday newspaper as a kid, but I was more focused on the Mini Gazette, a kids version of the paper. But since starting with Book Riot over a year ago, I’ve heard nothing but rave review after rave review about graphic novels and comic books. And since I am easily swayed by public opinion, I made it one of my bookish

James Comey Has His Own Superhero-esque Comic

In addition to his book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, making incredible sales during its first week, ex-FBI chief, James Comey, has also been given his own comic book detailing his “origin story.” The book, Political Power: James Comey, written by Michael Frizell and illustrated by Joe Paradise, is split into two parts, the first being his teenage years, while the second will focus on his career as a prosecutor. TidalWave Comics announced the 24-page comic book that will use “

35 Winnie The Pooh Quotes for Every Facet of Life | Book Riot

If you’re under the impression that Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, et al stop being relevant after a certain age…well, Silly Old Bear. Winnie the Pooh quotes are relevant at every stage of life. A.A. Milne’s beloved books chronicling the adventures of Christopher Robin and his stuffed friends have become a staple in every child’s bookshelf, but the lessons the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood learn are evergreen. So grab your stuffie of choice (mine’s name is Marshmallow) and a pot of “Hun

Inbox/Outbox: February 2, 2018

One of my bookish goals for 2018 was to read more from genres that I wouldn’t typically pick up. For me that’s historical fiction and nonfiction. I’ve read 36 books so far this year and I’m failing hardcore at my goal. My TBR piles are out of control and I’m desperately trying to work through those before purchasing anything else. I’m failing at this as well. This book was a surprise delivery from Hachette. I had never heard of this book before, but the cover is gorge and the premise of a famil
