Video of the Day for August 5th–Uncharted

This is one of my favorite songs and to me it is about the one thing every romantic wants–that one unbelievable love, the love that is so big that everything that came before it pales in comparison. The cool thing about this video is that she was able to get her friends to lip sync …

Video of the Day for August 4th–The Girl Who Waited and the Last Centurion

Having spent the majority of my morning with Doctor Who, awaiting the announcement of the 12th Doctor (Peter Capaldi–for those that missed the last hour on the internet), I decided that today’s video would be Doctor Who related, specifically a scene from The Angels Take Manhattan a.k.a. Amy and Rory’s last episode. Doctor Who does a lot …

Review of “The Look of Love” by Bella Andre

The High Expectation Fairy has struck again.  When I saw this book on the shelf at the Howard Beach Library on Tuesday I was ecstatic because everyone told me how great Bella Andre was.  One of her books was even featured as a Smart Bitch book club pick last year.  I guess it just goes …

New Feature–Video of the Day

For the second time this week, I am starting a new feature on the blog.  Each day, I will post a video that I find either particularly romantic or that I feel relates to a book that I’m reading in some way.  Last week, one of the blogs that I follow, Whatever Works, posted a …

Two Free Books for August 1st

Normally, I get my free books from Bookbub, but today’s links come from Lauren Willig, author of the Pink Carnation Series (Pink X comes out on August 6th) and Smart Bitch Sarah over at SmartBitchesTrashyBooks.com. 1. Dark Angel by Tracy Grant Adam Durward is an outsider in both his mother’s India and his father’s England.
