Since the Throne of Glass paperback came out in the US last spring with a new design, we’ve had so many requests from the TOG fandom for a hardcover with this look. You’ve begged. You’ve pleaded. And now … we’re giving you what you want!
Throne of Glass hardcovers with this new look will be available from all US retailers starting September 2, 2014 (when Heir of Fire goes on sale.)
We’re so excited and we hope you are too!
Oh yes! I was thinking about starting this series, but I wanted a hardcover with that cover. I will gladly wait until September!
How do I begin with all of this adorableness? We’ll do one book at a time. I was going to wait to review all of them when I got Isla in my hands. But I finished Lola this past week and my goodness, I wanted to rave about it.
Short Summary :
Anna Oliphant is about to start her senior year of high school. Unfortunately, for her, that year will be spent at The School of America in Paris. She’s…
How I feel when I finish a really good book…
Since Michigan State gained full membership to the Big Ten Conference in the early 1950s, the Spartans have been fighting the perception the true rival of their primary rival, Michigan, is Ohio State.
Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”
Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon.
And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.
The movie also passes the Bechdel test.
LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM.
Does this make Elle Woods a “Bad Feminist" ??? I think so. Happy belated birthday Legally Blonde!
I think I’ll watch this movie tonight.
I’m going to start doing book reviews here. I mean, I have blog. Why not use it. I think I’m gonna go back to do reviews on some of the books I’ve already read this year as well. I might lump some books in together. Like The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy (going to read the 3rd book soon) or the Anna/Lola/Isla books by Stephanie Perkins. We’ll see. But first, I’ll start with The Bone Season…
