Stuff That Doesn't Suck

Stuff That Doesn't Suck (aka STDs...thanks Andye) is a new weekly meme started by Pam at and I asked if I could do it and she said yes! So we're doing here on Novel Thoughts to show you some things that don't actually suck. Each week we'll introduce things the may be old, new, funny, serious, kick-ass, or meh. But believe me, none of it will suck. Let's begin!

Blog That Doesn't Suck:

Electrifying Reviews is run by Alex Bennett, a 14-year old that loves to read and blog about it! I came to know Alex through Twitter first, I believe, then began following his blog back five months after he started out and it was really one of the first I saw. He's an awesome guy and his reviews are always informative and enjoyable. He's been blogging now for about 14 months or so and has a great following. If you're not following him, be sure and check out Electrifying Reviews.

Book That Doesn't Suck:

I'm gonna go older on this because it's a book I loved and I hope more people read it! It's Airman by Eoin Colfer. Now, of course, everyone knows Eoin from his Artemis Fowl series but Airman needs more recognition too! I love it because 1) it was my first ever steampunk 2) it was my first of Eoin's work 3) it was one of the books that really got me to love reading 4) it was a major reason I started this blog and finally 5) it got me through a boring winter weekend while stuck in my dorm room. Go read this book if you've not yet!

Book Cover That Doesn't Suck:

After The Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn. I'm really excited about this book. Why? SUPERHEROES!!!

Movie That Doesn't Suck:

Happythankyoumoreplease. This movie is just awesome! It was written, directed, and starred Josh Radnor, whom we all know and love as Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother and even won at Sundance Film Festival. It probably isn't up everyone's alley but do check it out!

Song That Doesn't Suck:

Who Says by Selena Gomez & The Scene (don't judge me, I love her. Especially Wizards of Waverly Place!)

Photo That Doesn't Suck:

Sometimes this will be fun, and sometimes it'll be serious.

Website That Doesn't Suck:
