Summer TV I Can’t Wait to Watch

Summer TV I Can’t Wait to Watch

I loooove tv. Are you surprised? I didn’t think so. I think a lot of people associate autumn with Awesome TV Premier Season, but I’m here in defense of summer. There are so many (hopefully) amazing shows premiering this summer and I just can’t wait. There are brand new shows coming that I’m excited for and there are new episodes of old favorites. There are the shows I am most excited about for the summer.   Big Brother Big Brother […]

Blogging for Yourself vs. Blogging for Others

Blogging for Yourself vs. Blogging for Others

I’ve been blogging for more than four years now, and it has been a journey. My idea of what blogging is has changed; my vision of what I want my blog to be has changed, too. And my attitude behind why I’m even doing this has fluctuated almost as often as the tides. Different approaches to blogging have worked during different periods of my life, and just because I’m using one approach right now doesn’t mean I don’t find the […]

Movie Thoughts: Fifty Shades of Why

Movie Thoughts: Fifty Shades of Why

Literature student Anastasia Steele’s life changes forever when she meets handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey. I know you’re going to ask me why I put myself through this torture. I did it so you don’t have to. To be honest, I’ve been SO curious about how this was going to play out in movie format, so I knew I wanted to watch it as soon as it was available in the privacy of my own home. Now, I haven’t […]

I Don’t Like Fluff

I Don’t Like Fluff

So it’s not so much a confession as it is a realization, but here it is: I don’t like fluff. And for while I struggled with that because some of my best blogging friends LOVE fluff. They love lighthearted romance and feel-good books. And I always tried to read those books so I could “fit in” or whatever, but the time has come to realize that these types of books just don’t work for me. There’s so much about lighter […]

Book Review: Vanished

Book Review: Vanished

Wow, I haven’t felt this conflicted about a book in ages. Reading Vanished was like a roller coaster for my mood; I was constantly fluctuating between obsessed and over it. This book has an excellent mystery and a great protagonist, but there were a few flaws here too. My thoughts and feelings about this story are still constantly changing even as I write this review. So excuse me if I’m all over the place, but sometimes the only way to […]

Hate-Watching

Hate-Watching

So, hate-watching. It has a lot of definitions, but the idea is simple and almost always the same: watching something voraciously, while claiming to still dislike it. Do you do this? I know I do. The idea for this post came to me in the middle of  a Sons of Anarchy binge. I’ve watched every single episode and could tell you just about anything about the characters. And while the series started out with promise, halfway through, the quality fell, […]
