The One Thing E.L. James Did Right

Just finished the much acclaimed, and criticized, Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James. Did I love it? The story? Of course I did. Did I think a lot of it was silly writing and difficult to continue reading? Yes. But anyone as hopelessly romantic as myself, would love it and quite easily be absorbed and […]

Goblet of Fire

July 16th I decided to take the dive… the dive into the world-phenomenon that is Harry Potter. I took out the first book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and vlogged from within the tranquil walls of my public library as I prepared to start reading. In 35 days I read not only the 1st, […]

Bella

I had to give Bella a shot… the easiest and last name on my Name Game… Today my name is game with the Starbucks Baristas! And they scored in 1 shot! Unless you doubt that that’s an A at the end… as I am LOL.

New Moon

“Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.”- Bella I’ve neglected to mention that I worked through Twilight within 5 days, and quickly […]

It Begins…Twilight

100 pages in, in just 1 day and I can’t get enough. I knew this was going to be a problem (read why). This love story is to die for. The super well written and descriptive novel by Stephanie Meyer has already stolen my heart. HUGE difference between movie and book, as always- it never […]
