A Holiday Feature

When it comes to blogging, I failed in the last few months. I’ve focused on my novel and taking all the steps needed to get it closer to publishing. It’s important to me for my story to be as clean and as professional as possible. I did my first round of beta reading this summer and I finished another novel for last month’s NaNoWriMo. Now … Continue reading A Holiday Feature

More Sorrowful Than Glee

There seems to be a lot of tragedy that comes from this show. I’ve only watched a few handful of episodes with a friend, but I never followed it the way others have. Over the last decade, though, I’ve seen some sad things happen to both the cast and the show. The most tragic has to be when Cory Monteith died of a drug over-dose. … Continue reading More Sorrowful Than Glee

Forever Gaga

There’s a lot of things we don’t think about, but one that finally got my attention is my liking of Lady Gaga. Weird topic, I get it, but I think that’s why I like it and her. She’s been interesting since day one. I think she featured on some other artist’s break out song/music video and actually became more popular than the other artist. Talk … Continue reading Forever Gaga

Literacy Lunacy: Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita

Where do I even begin with this novel? I picked it up for a summer read a while back and never got around to read it. After unpacking my books, I came across it and decided it was about time to do so. Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita holds a taboo topic, but makes the reader wonder what is going to happen next for this educated yet … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita

Literacy Lunacy: William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet

What hasn’t been said about Romeo & Juliet? It’s a classic play of a tragic love story. It took me two times to read this, once for class and again for myself. The first time I didn’t have any thoughts in it because it was just to get through it. When I read it for myself, I both loved and hated it the tragic tale. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet

That’s So Fetch

It should be a crime that I didn’t know Mean Girls was based on a book until years later. It’s a self-help called Queen Bees and Wannabees. I haven’t read it and I don’t know if I ever will, but at least the movie is super dope. It is a cult classic, after all. I can’t remember the first time watching Mean Girls, but I … Continue reading That’s So Fetch

The Beauty of Magic

Oh, sweet, J.K. Rowling. Thank you for the gift that is Harry Potter. It has birth so much joy since its creation. The best one being the fan-fiction dedicated to the series. While I respect the events written in the books by Rowling are canon, I refuse to accept them. This can get scary, so I won’t go too into it, but Hermione ad Draco … Continue reading The Beauty of Magic

Literacy Lunacy: Sarah Blakley-Cartwright’s Red Riding Hood

This was going to be a movie. I’m positive it’s why I purchased it. As it turns out, the book I was actually written for the movie. It’s a tie-in novel. Kind of like one of those junior novels for Disney films. Except Sarah Blakley-Cartwright’s Red Riding Hood is a young adult novel in the classic fairy tale. Valerie’s sister was beautiful, kind, and sweet. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Sarah Blakley-Cartwright’s Red Riding Hood
