Requiem: A Netflix series review because OMG, this show is AMAZING.

Requiem: A Netflix series review because OMG, this show is AMAZING.

May 11, 2018 2 Comments Regina

I experience an urge to be scared witless from a book or film twice a year, usually in October and during the summer. It’s not quite summer, but I couldn’t resist checking out the new Netflix series Requiem. Long story short: this show was a gripping piece of art infused with suspense, psychological terror, Welsh mythology, and muted horror. I highly recommend adding it to your queue/watching it right away. My abbreviated plot synopsis: The […]

If you are an adult (18+), love to chat about books in […]

New Year, New Reading Challenges!

New Year, New Reading Challenges!

January 27, 2017 3 Comments Regina

Like many of you, I do not get around to starting my ”New Year” until the end of January. The first few weeks of the month are necessary adjustment days as I recover from the blur that is November and December. In fact, as I am writing this, the 2017 calendar I ordered online still has not arrived in my mailbox. So, I feel perfectly justified in not starting my new year’s plans until February. […]

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

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 […]

My thoughts… Omigosh! I loved this book so much!!! This is a fantastic series. One of my favorite young adult series. Crash Into You didn’ t disappoint. The storyline was intriguing. The characters and the situation they were faced were realistic. I just loved this story overall. The hero is Isaiah. He has been a secondary character in the first two books. I was so excited to get my hands on this one because I […]

Review: Deeper by Blue Ashcroft

Review: Deeper by Blue Ashcroft

August 19, 2013 0 Comments Christy

My thoughts… I liked Deeper. It’s a pretty good read for a debut novel. There were a few tiny things I didn’t care for, but for the most part I enjoyed reading this one. The characters were very likable for the most part and I enjoyed getting to know Rain and Knight. Speaking of Knight…what a different and unique name. I like it. Both Rain and Knight have issues. Even though they both have issues […]

Review: Stealing Harper by Molly McAdams

My thoughts… This is going to be a very short review. OMG! I knew going into this one that it was going to be highly emotional and I wasn’t wrong. By the end of Stealing Harper I was a blubbering mess. Literally. I’m still a bit emotional over it. I’m so glad that Ms McAdams wrote his story. I loved Chase. He struggled from the beginning with wanting Harper for himself and pushing her away […]
