Wrock, Retail Therapy, Books, and Glasses

Looking ahead to a class discussion of wizard rock (or "wrock"), I was pleased to see that the We Are Wizards documentary is now available on YouTube. There are also trailers and clips from The Wizard Rockumentary: A Movie About Rocking and Rowling on the official website.


FYI, if you're in the mood for some "retail therapy"...

* My awesome sister (you know, the tornado chaser) has opened "Thunder and Lightning," a KitsyLane jewelry and accessories boutique, so I invite you to check it out. In addition, her Etsy shop is Stormy Sky Designs. Yay!

* Peadar Ó Guilín's brilliant Bone World Trilogy is now complete with the new release of The Volunteer. Don't miss the dystopian goodness.

* Speaking of science fiction series, Jeff Carlson now has a sequel to his thriller The Frozen Sky. Betrayed is "Vonnie vs. the sunfish"; who can say no to that?

* I was sad to hear that Strange Chemistry is closing its doors. If you're interested in any Strange Chemistry book titles, this would be a good time to get them! I recommend the YA steampunk Emilie duology (Emilie and the Hollow World and Emilie and the Sky World) by Martha Wells.


Last but not least, I finally chose new glasses. Dark blue in front and bronzey-gold on the sides, they're bookverse Ravenclaw house colors, so they had to be mine! Nerdhood rocks!
