First thing I have to admit: I don’t know Plantagenet history so much as I do the War of the Roses or the Tudors for example so this one was a bit of a chore. […]
It’s a bit of a tradition that my friends and I go see a “bad” movie for my birthday. It didn’t start out that way. It’s just that most February movies are super bad so a couple of […]
Megan (Keira Knightley) is ten years out of high school unable to get into gear career wise and seriously unmotivated. Her friends are all moving forward and she’s stuck. Then when her high school boyfriend proposes […]
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross has been sitting unread on my Kindle for a while. Steampunk is a whole new thing to me- the last one I read was only okay. […]
As I’ve gotten older I’ve developed less of a tolerance for reading about (or watching) young people do stupid stuff. This book also contains another mark against for me in that an animal dies directly […]
