How to Read the Bedwyn Saga

If I’ve ever wondered if there is such a thing as too much historical romance (I didn’t) I know the answer. There is. Really. I’ve read six and a half Bedwyn Saga books in a span of one month. It’s really difficult to say at which point I started feeling slightly mad. If, at any…

I Cannot Bitch

Expect the unexpected is not exactly what comes to mind when you’re looking for a frivolous summer read. It most certainly is not something you expect to be applicable to a book titled Lord of Scoundrels with such a cover (urgh). And yet… Mind. Blown. My mind is also blown by the fact that my mind…

Carry On, nothing to see here

Rainbow Rowell – Carry On (2016) You can tell Rainbow adores Simon, Baz, Penelope, Agatha… she truly loves them all. Makes you love them. The kink is, she doesn’t really love the plot. Rainbow just wanted to have some reason to put her beloved characters together, and she was forced to come up with a…

Would you look at that?

I liked the first Bourne movie. I liked it because I love Damon (that should be LOVE, but let’s be subtle and pretend that I am, in fact, objective). I liked it because seeing the sweet puppy-like Matt go around kicking serious ass was a sight to see. Matt Damon and the LOVE were not…

I did not weep for Charlie, I wept for myself

Flowers for Algernon, 1958 Daniel Keyes I knew what was coming. It was only a matter of time. Despite brief bursts of optimism, there was nothing to look forward to save hopelessness. Somewhere around page 220, my vision began to blur. Having reached page 238 I was sobbing desperately. Flowers for Algernon has left me…

Barely Lethal (2015)

As soon as I’ve seen the trailer, I knew that the possibility of me enjoying this movie was high. CAUTION alarm buzzed immediately. Unfortunately, expectation often leads to disappointment  when these kind of movies are involved. However, I was not disappointed. The movie is good. It’s funny and fun, occasionally it’s smart. Jessica Alba actually…

The DUFF: The Movie

I wrote about The DUFF some months ago. I found it decent and refreshing, even tough it has flaws. The movie looks great, and I really can’t wait to see it (don’t judge me, judge for yourself). However, it seems to me it dumbs down the book significantly, and turns it into your typical ugly duckling story. Don’t get…
