4AM Banana Bread

4AM Banana Bread

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters to Check Up On

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters to Check Up On

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish list meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, combining two of my favorite things – lists and books! This week we’re discussing characters we’d like to check in with. This happens a lot: you get attached to characters before – in your opinion – their stories are really over. Sometimes a series drops them without any real notice, sometimes the book ends before you really get your closure, or you just know they’re […]

And though I typically love winter, I’m ready to bring on the sunshine (even if it comes with bees.) I’m determined to make April the best month of 2015 so far, and these are the books, movies, tv shows, and games that will take me there.   Books All the Rage by Courtney Summers. I’m doing the blog tour for […]

Welcome!

Welcome!

  I’m back! Not that I was ever gone, but you understand. For the last 15 months or so, I’ve been blogging at Great Imaginations – and that’s not going to change. However, I’ve been wanting to expand my focus and I’ve been struggling to find my own voice. So Pretty Deadly Reviews has been resurrected! Pretty Deadly Reviews will be my own space here to rant about anything I feel like, talk about books, talk about tv and movies […]
