Some Thursday Randomness

Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church does sidewalk art that only shows up when it rains (or gets wet).

Saw this everywhere on Facebook. Its a mash up of every famous dance scene in movies.

Came across artist Sabine Rich (deviantArt) really has some amazing artwork in her galleries.

What I'm Reading

Another weird/ bad reading week with nothing to really write a review on. I'm having trouble settling on a book and sticking with it for any length of time.
*credit to whomever does the Monday Reading meme. **It's Monday! What are you Reading? hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

Prince of Fools (Goodreads)
by Mark Lawrence

**I haven't read anything by this author before. I'm liking the world even if I'm not sure about the main character so far. Hard to get behind a guy who starts the book off describing himself as a coward.

The Night Circus (Goodreads)
by Erin Morgenstern

**Trying another audio book. My problem so far is that if I'm not doing something on my laptop I find myself wanting to pick up a book even though I'm listening to one.

Marvel 1602 (Goodreads)
by Neil Gaiman

**Was looking for something different to read while on the road. Saw this while looking through the graphic novels at the library. I like both Neil Gaiman and Marvel so had to give it a try.

Some Thursday Randomness

Saw this table on Colossal (website). At this time with a ten year old boy I could never have a table like this but I love the whimsy of it.
Up Balloon Coffee Table
by Duffy London (website)
Epic Reads did a column on beautiful end papers in books. I always love when there are detailed, well done maps in fantasy books. From the list they showed the end papers for Fairest by Marissa Meyer was my favorite.

I'm probably just missing them but I haven't seen as many book trailers lately. Liked the artwork in this one. Mark of the Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen
