Don't Look Behind the Bookshelf: Going Goth with Eve Rosser

10:00 AM

Beware, beware, the third (!!!) annual Don't Look Behind the Bookshelf, a Halloween feature I like to do here on Beauty and the Bookshelf, IS FINALLY HERE! For the first two years I had thirteen days of interviews and guest posts from authors whose books could somehow relate to this spooky holiday. (You can find year one here and year two here.) But this year, I'm switching it up and doing something different.

From now through Halloween, I will be posting LOTS (okay, so not LOTS, but not exactly a little either) of posts with different ideas for Halloween costumes of fictional characters! I did this for a number of reasons, one because I wanted to have a lot of FUN, and secondly because, hello, who doesn't want to dress up as a character from a book?

Costumes these days can be super pricey and, for us ladies, quite revealing. And maybe you don't want to be a cop or a devil or a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Maybe you want to be a book character, because HOW COOL would that be?! So I'm here to help you. I'm going to show you how to take the simplest things you might own and turn them into a costume fit to represent fictional characters, with some modern twists, of course.

Are you ready?

Morganville: The Series - Exclusive Behind the Scenes Look

1:30 AM

I am such a big fan of Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires series that you don't even know. I have all the books (of course I do) and am now starting my collection of the UK covers. And this series? It's one of my most absolute favorites and I love it so, so much. Morganville is like a second home. I know the characters and they seem so real; I love their stories; and just EVERYTHING. And now these books are also a web series, which is super freaking cool. So it is with great pleasure that I share some exclusive info with you!

Let's Talk About Balancing School + Blogging

5
3:00 PM

Life is like a nice big bowl of cereal. (Not what you thought I was going to say, was it?) If you pour in too much milk then your cereal is just swimming in it. But if you don't pour enough milk into the bowl, then your cereal is too dry and unenjoyable. Just like a PB&J sandwich, fruit salad, or Top Ramen (I don't like too much water in my final product), it's all about two things: ratio and balance. Too much of one thing doesn't work and too little of another won't work well, either. It's also like blogging and school (or work). Continue reading →
