I picked this book up months ago. My thought process, it’s YA, it’s dystopian, it’s being made into a movie.The synopsis on the back was intriguing: When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone. Nice to meet […]
I feel like I have been sharing a lot of the same things about myself over and over again. I love science fiction and fantasy. I love fandoms. I love YA. I love my kids(not in that particular order). So maybe I have already shared this neurosis. But I will not see a movie if […]
Eleanor & Park: A Playlist. I loved this! I have already downloaded every song and have been listening to them in a loop all day. Just wanted to share this awesomeness!
If I have said it once, I have said it a million times. I love me some YA. Eleanor & Park is a prime example of why this genre is great. It tells a story of two high school kids, in the late 80’s who during one school year fall in love, while trying to […]

Have I mentioned that I am a sucker for romances. I am a romantic at heart, and I am always hoping for that happy ending. I needed a short break from Outlander and The Last Letter from your Lover was the perfect solution. It zapped me from 18th century Scotland to 1960’s London, in […]
Still muddling through the seemingly never-ending Outlander series. Actually, muddling is not the right word because I am loving every second of it. The adventures of Claire Randall, and Jamie Fraser has captured my imagination and I just can’t stop reading. In book five and six, Claire and Jamie travel to the new world, […]
