March 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

5 Star Reads   4-4.5 Star Reads      3-3.5 Star Reads   The High’s & Low’s! Obviously I had a lot 4 star reads.  They were all good, I enjoyed them.  My highlights in March were Mercy Thompson, but that’s obvious.  I think the biggest shocker was my obsession with The Foxhole Court.  More than […]

Monthly Media Mashup | Television Ships

Good morning guys! Normally for my Monthly Media Mashup I talk about everything happening on the new seasons of my favorite shows.  Here’s the problem, I’m not watching them lately.  I’ve been binge watching shows on Netflix instead.  So, probably next month we’ll talk about all the Marvel seasons on Netflix.  (Iron Fist just came […]

How to Train Your Dragon Book Tag

Okay, so lets start this tag with a confession.  Ready?  I’ve only seen How to Train Your Dragon once.  The first movie only, none of the shows or follow ups.  And it was okay, cute enough, but it wasn’t up there on my favorites list.  My daughter, Baby Chick, she actually really loves this one […]

Flights of Fancy – Fancasting Faces

Casting a beloved book, for a movie or just among the fans, is a problematic situation.  We’re all so involved with the characters as we see them in our own heads, and it can get a little dicey when someone points out why we’re wrong. I’m not normally someone who reads a book and starts […]

Top Ten Tuesday | The Unputdownable

Lucky in Love – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

When I started thinking about St Patrick’s Day, my first thought was about how there are those couples that are lucky in their partners.  There are books out there with the well balanced pair, like Claire and Jamie, but it seems like there are quite a lot of books that are unbalanced and one couple […]

Ten Buffy Episodes was the Goal -We Failed

Subconscious Gender Bias

I pride myself on being a real world feminist.  I believe women are equal to men in every way, and that includes our strengths and our weaknesses.  We’re just as capable of greatness, but we can also share the same flaws.  This is something I know deep in my foundation. However, when I read a […]
