The History of TV Theme Songs

This. is. brilliant.

I'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing that I sang along with the majority of these theme songs. There were a couple I didn't know. They must have been before my time.

Extended Look at Les Misérables

Note to self:  There will be ugly crying in this movie so take a lot of tissue with you to the theater. You probably shouldn't plan on wearing eye makeup either.

The Firelight Series

I just finished reading the last book in the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan. When I first read the description for Firelight I didn't plan on reading it. I don't usually read books about dragons. They just aren't my thing. But after several of my friends gushed about the book I decided to give it a try. I was instantly sucked into the world of Draki, which are descendants of dragons with a human side. The characters, the lore, the descriptions all grabbed a hold of me and wouldn't let go.

If I remember correctly I read Firelight in one sitting. Then the wait for Vanish began. I got it the day it was released and devoured it just as quickly as Firelight. Hidden came out on Tuesday and I decided I was going to take a little longer to read this one because it was the last book and I wanted to savor every word. Guess how well that plan worked out? Yeah, I read it all on Wednesday night. I just couldn't put it down.

I loved this series!! I won't go into detail because Hidden is so fresh on my mind that I'm afraid I will spoil something from the first book. All I can say is that if you like YA paranormal fiction you need to read these books!

All Kinds of Castle Goodness

As we get closer and closer to the season premiere of Castle there are more and more things surfacing online that are feeding my inner fangirl. I'm new to this fandom so this is the first season that I've seen all these goodies appear. I've tried to have some kind of control and not post all of this stuff as it came out. So I'm going to throw it all into one post.

First up- a couple of things from season four that have been released in anticipation of the DVD release on September 11th.

A deleted scene from the season finale, Always. This is painful to watch because of the truth of Castle's words and the fact that Kate predicted this is how she would react if she started looking into her mother's case again.

The bloopers from season four- this made me laugh so hard. These guys look like they have a blast at work.

And now for the season five goodness...

The first promo for season five- After the Storm. My reaction- asdmdajnemrefav

And a picture from that episode to go along with it-

New cast photos!!! Here's the whole cast-
Individual photos can be seen here. They are gorgeous and completely worth following that link. I'd post them all here but that would make this post even longer than it already is.

And then we got a new promo poster
There is some interesting analysis of this poster here.

These photos are from Entertainment Weekly.

I'm so excited!!! September 24th can not get here soon enough!!

Mischief Managed

This is a gorgeous video summary of all the Harry Potter movies. I may have cried a little bit.
