Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

I'm pretty sure I mentioned in a previous post that my mom and I have been watching Doctor Who together--and it has been fantastic. Her no-nonsense commentary and her indignation if ever I fail to warn her about a Scary Moment are worth their weight in gold. We love Eleven and Twelve the best, agree… Continue reading Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

Movie Review: “Captain Marvel”

CAPTAIN MARVEL. How can I describe the absolute beauty, hilarity, power, and preciousness of this film? I laughed, I clapped, I cheered, I even got a little emotional at one point. It was WONDERFUL. Vers is a Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the… Continue reading Movie Review: “Captain Marvel”

He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he's doing great--but needless to say, I've… Continue reading Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

TV Review: The Crown, Season 2

I've been looking forward to the second season of The Crown* ever since my parents, sisters, and I finished the first one--albeit it with certain reservations. I'd heard that at least one of the episodes in Season 2 was quite smutty, and while I enjoyed the first season, I took issue with the way it portrayed… Continue reading TV Review: The Crown, Season 2

Becoming a Book Girl Again: A Journey Back into the Reading Life

I was a voracious reader when I was little. I remember once instance where, after I'd been naughty, my mom disciplined me by forbidding me to read anything for an hour or so. It was a very effective punishment. I also remember coming home from the library with a stack of books one afternoon, then crying my… Continue reading Becoming a Book Girl Again: A Journey Back into the Reading Life
