Sunday Confessions: I have a guilty pleasure…

Sunday Confessions: I have a guilty pleasure…

December 4, 2016 0 Comments Regina

    I have a guilty pleasure. It’s Sunday, and I felt the need to confess my secret to see if anyone else shares the same shame secret as me.  I really can’t believe I’m doing this… . . . It all started in 2015. I was on YouTube searching for some instructional videos and a wild card showed up under my recommended list. It piqued my interest, I clicked on the link, and I’ve […]

#ThingsIHaveUsedForBookmarks: Leaving Our Mark

January 24, 2016 2 Comments Regina

Might as well just re-purpose the note that came along with the book from the pub as a bookmark, right? We’ve all done it. As avid readers we’ve all exclaimed at least once, “Where the hell is my bookmark!?”, while frantically flipping through the pages of our current book, or patting the area around where we were reading in search of the vanishing page saver. We’ve all experienced a bookmark shortage at one time or […]

Saturday Night Shrine: Ian Somerhalder+Giveaway!!!

Saturday Night Shrine: Ian Somerhalder+Giveaway!!!

January 4, 2014 11 Comments Regina

In a fictional world, Ian Somerhalder is my leading man. The Rules of Attraction. That’s the first time I ever knowingly set eyes on Ian Somerhalder. “Who’s the hottie with the eyebrows!?” I asked my college roommate after watching the preview on the pc before she dragged me to see the movie. ” I don’t know, but it’s at the dollar cinema across from campus so we’re going.” “Okay,” I said, “but I’m only going […]

ARC Review+GIVEAWAY: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

ARC Review+GIVEAWAY: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie

December 2, 2013 6 Comments Regina

First, there was Shakespeare. Then, there was Georgina Guthrie. Sometimes you stumble upon a book that appeals to all your senses. A book that wraps itself around you, and warms you to your core like a chenille sweater during a Canadian winter. The Weight of Words is one of those books. In my mind’s eye, TWoW is leather-bound in Oxblood-red with roughly edged, cream colored pages. It’s a romantic contemporary classic that deserves to be […]

Saturday Night Shrine: Douglas Booth

Saturday Night Shrine: Douglas Booth

October 19, 2013 0 Comments Regina

I had no idea who Douglas Booth was until I started following the production of the latest Romeo and Juliet film directed by Carlo Carlei.  At first glance at some of the production stills and IMDB photos, I wasn’t impressed with the casting of Hailee Steinfield and Douglas Booth, but I decided to dig a little deeper and see what DB was all about. My research consisted of watching the latest films/television series DB had […]

Saturday Night Shrine: Caleb Lane

Saturday Night Shrine: Caleb Lane

October 5, 2013 0 Comments Regina

I stumbled across Caleb Lane while doing research for The Academy series by C.L. Stone. I was developing my own private ”dossier” (as C.L. likes to call it) of boys that I found suitable for casting as the magnetic, magical 7 guys in her books. Nathan happens to be one of my favorite boys in The Academy series, and I needed to find someone extra special (and extra HOT) to fill his role for me […]

Stars in September: Stardust by Mimi Strong

Stars in September: Stardust by Mimi Strong

September 20, 2013 1 Comment Regina

“Faster, Lionheart, you little stud-pony, faster!” If Stardust was a woman (or a man), s/he would be fast, easy, and funny. This book showed up on Amazon’s Best Seller list, so I shrugged and thought “why not”. A few chapters in, I almost ditched it because I felt like I was losing brain cells. Then, I turned on the television and proceeded to watch Hardcore Pawn. I decided that was quite ironic, and went back […]

Stars in September: Mimi Strong Author Spotlight

September 13, 2013 0 Comments Regina

  Today, I thought I would focus the author spotlight on Mimi Strong. Erin and I are currently reading Stardust, the first book in the Peaches Monroe series, and we have both overdosed on LOL moments. Hard. Stardust is on the top ten Amazon Bestseller’s list, and with a title like Stardust and a story like Peaches Monroe’s,  it’s easy to see why. Here’s a lil’ somethin’, somethin’ about Mimi taken straight from her awesome […]

Stars in September: The Fallen Star series by Jessica Sorenson

September 11, 2013 0 Comments Regina

I discovered this series after finishing Obsidian, by Jennifer Armentrout. I was desperate to chase the first book in the Lux series with something that had romance, tension, and a Sci-Fi edge to it. Not surprisingly, Amazon came to the rescue. ” Your cart is empty, ” Amazon says. “Give it purpose,” Amazon says. So, of course, unable to ignore these desperate pleas to give my cart meaning any longer, I looked at the recommendations […]

I know it’s Sunday, but I am lusting after some literary inspired home and fashion finds. I’m always guilty of judging a book by it’s cover, and I’m not gonna lie. I’ve liked a book so much before, I wished I could wear it…or something inspired by it.  Right now, the items below are as close as I’m gonna get. Would you wear literary inspired fashion? What bookish items are you lusting after? Literary Lusts […]
