I don't know what it was about last week, but book covers were leaking out of everyone's ears. HarperTeen especially had some gorgeous ones. You can see a lot of the covers released last week over at Epic Reads here. I've scattered a few of the ones that made me the most excited throughout this post.
Speaking of the Con: Info about Comic Con panels, autograph sessions and swag is starting to leak out from the various companies that attend the Con. Yesterday Simon & Schuester announced their panels and big autograph signings, which include John Barrowman (JACK!) and Cassandra Clare, who will probably be getting a lot of attention at the Con this year. The whole S&S schedule can be found here.
So I loooooooved Something Strange & Deadly by Susan Dennard when I read it earlier this year. It made me squeal like a young girl and swoon over Daniel for days. The sequel comes out next month and Working for the Mandroid has been lucky enough to be on the A Darkness Strange & Lovely blog tour in a few weeks. In the meantime, have a scene from the first book told from Daniel's perspective.
For my shallow purposeless "look at the attractive man with a baby" link for the month: A few weeks ago, Robert Downey Jr meet a tiny fan went disasterously because he did not look like Iron Man and the little boy was very confused. This week Fluffy Spider-man Andrew Garfield was seen hanging out on set with a toddler. It makes me want to steal my niece and fly to New York. Note: I watched this video with no sound, so I have no idea what it sounds.
So far this season of True Blood is batshit insane. I mean, more so than the other seasons, which is really saying something. But it gave me this, so I'm still watching.
There are already over 100 babies named Khaleesi in the United States now. Of all the weird names in the Game of Thrones canon, I'm glad that one is the one taking off. It's not that weird. At least it's not Hodor.
To truly be random, I must include a link to this story about the runaway red panda because it made me go "aaawww" before 8am this morning, which is a miracle in and of itself. And red pandas are ADORABLE.
I want a video of someone walking in this Lego wedding dress. Because that would be awesome.
If you liked Peggy Carter in the first Captain America movie, she's getting a short on the upcoming Iron Man 3 blu-ray. I don't know why it's going on that DVD, but maybe it has Tony Stark's dad in it or something. I'm always happy to get more strong female character screentime though.
And that's about the max of my randomosity for this week. What cool, interesting or just plain weird things have you come across on your travels across the interwebs?
