Analysis of the most banned/challenged books in the U.S. shows that diverse books are disproportionately targeted for book challenges and censorship. [Read more at Diversity in YA.]

Here’s a fascinating analysis of the most banned/challenged books done by Malinda Lo

Check out this interesting study.

Not surprised, unfortunately.

Idris Elba, on his dream role, to US Weekly (via camewiththeframe)

Wow.. I love that he wants to do this.  I would see it!

I want to do a rom-com with Melissa McCarthy. I even told her that at an awards show, and she said ‘Yes, Let’s do it!’

I rendered Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman pose in 3D.

This is hilarious.

This need to happen more often with comic art.

Glee is about to get a bit chilly in it’s upcoming season as we have learned that the show will be featuring a song from Frozen.
On September 12 Lea Michele took to her Twitter to confirm that Glee would be covering the song “Let It Go” from the Disney movie Frozen (in case you’ve never heard of it).
The actress wrote, “I don’t care… What they’re going to say… Let the storm rage on… The cold never bothered me anyway…” and included a photo from the set.

Not surprising considering Idina plays her mom
