Fifty Shades of Love (no seriously)

(BEAR WITH ME ON THE TITLE. I PROMISE IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT IT'S PARODYING. ...ACTUALLY IT'S THE EXACT OPPOSITE. PLEASE FORGIVE ME) Hah. Remember when I said I was going to get back into this? Yeahhhhhhhh I did really well with that. But hey! I'm trying? Points for effort? I feel like … Continue reading Fifty Shades of Love (no seriously)

Nostalgia, I Choose You!

(I had some other idea for a post the other day, but I can't remember what it was anymore, so I can't very well write about it.

I love my Nook and my Kindle, but I also still will go out of my way to buy … Continue reading Age of the Brick-and-Mortar Bookstore

Curse of the Third Book

I seem to have brought it upon myself, way back in high school, unknowingly. It began with an author I have come to love dearly, and am glad of … Continue reading Curse of the Third Book
