I Read It First: The Scorch Trials

After slogging through two books in this shitty fucking series, my thought process regarding it has pretty much been reduced to crazed, maniacal laughter. But I am going to try to use my words, just for you, dear readers. Just. For. You. The Book: The Scorch Trials by James Dashner Genre: YA, scifi, second in a series First… Continue reading I Read It First: The Scorch Trials

YouTube Round-Up

It's been a while since I've shamelessly fawned over things I'm loving on YouTube. In fact, I haven't written a post about anything I'm watching (aside from drunk movie mondays, of course) since How to Train Your Dragon 2, and my last online video round-up was in 2013. Yikes. Well, let's talk about some things… Continue reading YouTube Round-Up

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

This little book came to me almost entirely by accident. I found it in a used book store, which I was only perusing because a friend of mine was late for our dinner plans.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet

Apparently this is a book blog now, because a solid 50% of my posts these days are just book reviews. I've been reading a lot. Can you tell?

The only children's movies I've talked about on here are Up and Wreck-It Ralph, neither of which I cared for, so… Continue reading Kid Movies for Adults

The Children of Men – P.D. James

I'm always looking for book recommendations, particularly from people with whom I don't generally share reading preferences. A recommendation from a book friend might be much better tailored to my tastes, but a book recommendation from someone not familiar with my own preferences in reading tells me a lot more about them. Invariably, if someone… Continue reading The Children of Men – P.D. James

Drunk Movie Monday – Reefer Madness

With the Oscars last night, which actually featured a number of deserving winners rather than the usual 'meh' that the Academy presents, it seems a bit silly to talk about bad movies that are fun to watch drunk. But I am still going to do Drunk Movie Monday because it is A Thing, and so… Continue reading Drunk Movie Monday – Reefer Madness
