Motivated May

I am hereby renaming this coming month Motivated May and vow to post at least three times a week for the month. I have so many book reviews and half-completed drafts in my folder that I'd love to finally publish - plus, it won't hurt me to have a think about the posts I write for… Continue reading Motivated May

Girl Gang: Stephen King Character Edition

Inspired as always by the brilliant Meghan Lightle and her Avengers Girl Gang, I've been thinking a lot lately about the mighty female characters of Stephen King's books.

East Side Sushi (Film) Review

As a die-hard fan of grittier movies, it is sometimes nice just to tune into something gentle and pure.

As a disciple of Ru Paul's Drag Race (and let me tell you, there's nothing more extra than a new convert), of course I was going to get… Continue reading Hurricane Bianca (Film) Review

The Woman in the Window (Book) Review

I read this book in tandem with my friend Heather and it was so much fun. We both raced through it in a couple of days and compared notes as we went. This book is impossible to put down, something authors are always quoted as saying for the cover of novels but in this case… Continue reading The Woman in the Window (Book) Review
