Friday Five (2): The one with book budgets, bucket lists and Taylor Swift.

The first time I had ever seen a Friday Five list was on Sarah Dessen's blog. When I had a livejournal account I pretty much did a Friday Five post every week about five random things that happened to me. But this time I'm going to list five awesome bookish things I learned during the week. So a big thanks to Sarah Dessen for inspiring this version of a Friday Five!
1. Beautiful Creatures Spin-off Series announced!   
The series kicks off with the enovella "Dangerous Dream," available for download on December 17, followed by the release of the first book, "Dangerous Creatures," on May 6, 2014. -Hollywood Crush
"Garcia and Stohl will participate in a live Twitter chat on Tuesday, September 17, at 4:00 p.m. PST/7:00 p.m. EST. Fans can ask questions about the new series using the hashtag #DangerousCreatures." -Publisher's Weekly

2. This is a great list of Books Set in Toronto. I love seeing what Canadian literature is out there - either by Canadian authors or books set in Canada. I might have to add a few to my wishlist. - Retreat by Random House

3. The Blogging Bucket List by Reading is My Treasure - I stumbled upon this cool concept of a bucket list for blogging - a bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket." I love this idea. I just might need to make one up for my book blog.
4. I also found this inspiring feature - Book Budget that The Geeky Blogger's Book Blog started up as a way to keep track of spending on books and book related items. 

5. Time for CBC Books: Who Said It Quiz: Taylor Swift or Chuck Palahniuk? "T
heir outlooks on life, love and loss may appear to be closer than we initially thought. " I took the quiz and I scored 50%.
