No, I Don’t HAVE To Go See That YA Movie Adaptation

No, I Don’t HAVE To Go See That YA Movie Adaptation

Uncategorized | August 7, 2014

Phew, okay, this is a rant that’s long overdue – one that actually spawned in my mind back in February. Yeah, I’m THAT behind on blogging. But as we have a new set of YA movie adaptations coming to us very soon, I thought I would take the time to write it ANYWAY. Now, I am a proud […]

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher

Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back..

Book Reviews | August 6, 2014

And only a couple that I purchased myself. *looks smug* Now, you can watch […]

Book Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

Book Reviews | August 2, 2014

After reading and loving both Losing It and Faking It by Cora Carmack, I was convinced: this lady knows how to write New Adult that absolutely works for me. While All Lined Up doesn’t reach the same level of personal significance and relatability to me, it is a great, light read with Carmack’s reliable refreshing voice. The first […]

July 2014: the month of endings and new beginnings I CANNOT believe it’s already August. What even. Time seriously flies. July was a big — HUGE — month for me, as you’ll see later on in this post. I didn’t even read a single page of any book for the first half of the month, because I was […]
