But first… Have you read Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park and Fangirl yet? Please do. I’m going to nag you about this until you do. And if we were in person together, I would withhold this list until you proved to me that you did. Thanks for your patience re: my New Adult book binge. Full Story
I have just entered the third and final trimester of my book pregnancy. And I had promised that I would treat it like a baby pregnancy – be super self-indulgent and talk about it all the time, every page edit was supposed to be a baby kick – so I’m throwing myself a gender reveal party.

David Fincher, who directs the upcoming movie adaptation of Gone Girl, shot the new cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring his two stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck. I love it. I f-cking love it. Right down to the perfect swirling curls of her hair laid out on the slab. The actors’ expressions are also excellent. Full Story

UK gossips are rumouring that Harry Styles has started up a situation with model Daisy Lowe, daughter of Gavin Rossdale and ex-girlfriend of Matt Smith. They went to a birthday party together, and any hot girl seen in his vicinity is, naturally, totally f-cking him.

Principal photography on Fifty Shades Of Grey is now underway in Vancouver. Here’s Jamie Dornan in character as Christian Grey, who’s really just EL James’s reimagining of Robert Pattinson eating her out. So…how does Dornan look as Pattinson? Well, he looks really good.

I made meatloaf last night. For the first time ever. Seriously, it turned out amazing. Meatloaf always seemed so complicated. How does it all stay together, like bread? The reason I made meatloaf is because a few weeks ago, someone sent me a copy of Jessica Seinfeld’s The Can’t Cook Book. Read Full Intro
We interviewed Amy Tan yesterday on The Social. I’ve been a fan a long, long time. Tan is currently promoting her new novel The Valley Of Amazement. It is once again a portrait of a mother-daughter relationship set in a courtesan community in Shanghai over a hundred years ago. So it’s a story about family, sex, and gossip. Obviously I’m all over it. Because the book is good (am currently about half way through) but also because Amy Tan is awesome.
She’s saucy. She’s cheeky. She’s hilarious. She’s super, super stylish. Did you see her in head to toe Issey Miyake, whaaaaaaaaaaat? Also, did you know she’s in a cover band called The Rock Bottom Remainders with other writers like Stephen King and Mitch Albom? They only play for charity. She’s the “lead rhythm dominatrix”. This KILLS me.
Have a great weekend!
