Favorite Reads of 2018

While I work on getting back into the swing of blogging, I thought I’d start with something kind of easy. According to my Goodreads stats, I read 38 books last year. I realized that I’m not much of a mood reader. I like to make lists of possible books to read based off my physical…

Back in Action

I have decided to keep the blog. I feel a bit of a renewed passion for this place. So let’s make it work! I will keep what I started including book and movie reviews, but I want to include more. More passion projects if you will: my quest for pursuing a low-waste lifestyle with someone…

Blog Status: Keep or Delete?

So much has happened since I started this blog but the first thing that comes to mind is how this once fun place began to feel like a chore. So, without dithering around, the real question is set forth to any readers/subscribers I may still have: Is revamping worth it? I think I would still…

September 2018 Reads

In an effort to get back into writing I thought maybe I could start with something that I already track: the books I’ve read. Let’s jump right into September’s books!   Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty This was an impulse borrow from the library. I really enjoyed the first season of the show. A…

Long Absence Check-In

I know it’s been rather long time since my last post and if you haven’t guessed by now, it’s because the blog used to be fun and then it felt like a chore. Hopefully the spark will come back soon and  I can get back into writing about books and movies and convention adventures.  …

the Three Musketeers (2011)

Although it was my goal to read the book before ever seeing any version of the film, that didn’t happen. I caved and watched the 1993 version with Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, and Chris O’Donnell. After that I saw the characters briefly appear/reappear in Once Upon a Time, I decided to plunge right into another…

Winter Wishlist

It is time to start putting away the tank tops and pulling out the sweaters and winter coats. These are a few things I would like to get for the cold season ahead!   1. My most wished for item on this list is a Jughead Jones crown beanie (from the Archie comics/Riverdale tv show)….

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

I love classic books which makes me believe that it’s no surprise that with a hop, skip, and a jump away that I would love classic monster films. I am fully aware of the fact that this film isn’t a classic, but it definitely felt like a good old fashioned monster film. With some modern…

Welcome Back!

Hello readers! I’ve been on an unexpected hiatus from the blog but I’m back! I was feeling super burnout and like this blog was a chore instead of something fun, but I miss writing. Especially about books and movies and such! I’m sorry for not updating for a while. Hopefully we’ll get back in the…

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

This movie caught my eye immediately! The first trailer I saw and Foxy Husband explained, “It’s Luc Besson. That’s why. He did the Fifth Element. The Professional.” And of course, it made sense. I was (am) enamored with those films. He also told me that the reason the Fifth Element was made was because Luc…
