Apologies in Advance For the Amount of Swooning Over Dashing Frenchmen in the Below Review (Review of London Belongs To Us by Sarra Manning)

  A quick note: If you’re not in the mood to read my rambles and would rather listen to me ramble about this book instead (or if you want both!) I joined Diem over at Bookish Friends to talk about this book. You can hear our spoiler-free review here, or our spoilerific discussion here. There… Continue reading Apologies in Advance For the Amount of Swooning Over Dashing Frenchmen in the Below Review (Review of London Belongs To Us by Sarra Manning)

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… (Review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan)

There’s a part of my brain going “Dude! Publish a review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily for Christmas!” because in my brain Christmas is still a very long way away (we’re talking months), and it’d be sooo original to write a review of a Christmas book for Christmas, wouldn’t it? But apparently it is in fact December,… Continue reading It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… (Review of The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan)

Honey, I Shrunk the Reviews (Mini-Reviews!)

Because I’m kinda horribly out of the habit of review-writing (that, and also incredibly lazy), instead of writing actual, full length reviews of the books I read during the time I was wallowing in my creativity slump-induced angstiness, I’m going to devote a single post to a few mini-reviews. This may be something that reappears… Continue reading Honey, I Shrunk the Reviews (Mini-Reviews!)

More Thoughts on Pride and Prejudice (2005 film) [Part Two]

A little while ago, I watched the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and I had some thoughts about it. I had more thoughts than would fit in a reasonably sized blog post, so here’s the second part of my ponderings on the film. In Part One I discussed the effect that adapting it into a film that… Continue reading More Thoughts on Pride and Prejudice (2005 film) [Part Two]

Cadavers, Graffiti and Buses, Oh My! (Review of Night Owls by Jenn Bennett)

I think it was the frankly stunning cover that initially drew me to Jenn Bennett’s Night Owls (published in the US as The Anatomical Shape of a Heart). There’s apparently a pretty decent-sized part of me that’s attracted to pretty, shiny things, so with the title written in gold, how could I resist? Unfortunately my intense love for… Continue reading Cadavers, Graffiti and Buses, Oh My! (Review of Night Owls by Jenn Bennett)

Review: Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy

I hadn’t heard anything about Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You before I saw it sitting on the shelf at my local library. I picked it up because I have fondness for crazy long and somewhat unwieldy titles, and the whole list format sounded really interesting. It’s been about a month since… Continue reading Review: Me Being Me Is Exactly As Insane As You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy

Thoughts on Pride and Prejudice (2005 film) [Part One]

The other night I finally watched the 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, so instead of finishing the book review I’ve slowly been working on over the last few days, I decided to write a film review instead. Then I realised that whatever I wrote would inevitably involve comparing the film to the novel, rather than discussing… Continue reading Thoughts on Pride and Prejudice (2005 film) [Part One]
