Video of the Day–Gene and Jerry

I was working on my NaNoNovel today and at one point, I had my heroine comparing her hero to Gene Kelly, which got me thinking about Gene Kelly movies and dances.  I’ve never seen Anchors Aweigh, but I know this scene.  I can’t imagine how hard it must have been for him to dance with …

Video of the Day–Look to the Future

If you watched the parade yesterday, you probably heard Train cover this song and if you’re American (which if you were watching the parade you probably are), you most likely aren’t familiar with this song.  It is Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade and the first time I heard it was in Doctor Who‘s Christmas Invasion.  I believe …

Video of the Day–Togetherness

  Thanksgiving.  A day of giving thanks for the ones you love.  Or not.  In my family, Thanksgiving (and most holidays that involve big get togethers) is about proving your right about something while shouting for someone to pass the mashed potatoes.  It actually got so bad that my aunt had to insist on specific …

Video of the Day–Love in the Afternoon

It seems this is a week for soap weddings on this blog.  I hadn’t planned on posting this video today, but when my mom called me yesterday with the news of David Canary’s passing at the age of 77, I felt compelled to write this post. For those that don’t know who that is, Canary …

Review of “The Lady Who Lived Again” By Thomasine Rappold

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I requested The Lady Who Lived Again, but I am sure that I did not get it, whatever it was.  Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t a bad book.  I’m just confused as to what it is.  At times, it feels like it wants to be a paranormal and …

Video of the Day–Her Fake Fiancé

I’m in the middle of reading The Woman Who Lived Again by Thomasine Rappold (available December 8th), which is about a woman who convinces a virtual stranger to pretend to be her fiancé and escort her to a friend’s wedding because she can’t face her ex and his new bride-to-be without having someone on her arm. …

Video of the Day–Everyone Needs a Theme Song

In His New Jam music plays a big part of the book and for the heroine, Sydney, one song in particular represented her: Bad Reputation by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.  This was her go to song on her drums and I feel as if it was her theme song.  I believe that everyone should have one …

Review of “His New Jam” by Shannyn Schroeder

Last month, I discovered the Hot and Nerdy Series by Shannyn Schroeder and was hyped to find the next two books in the series were coming out in November and December.  Unfortunately, that meant I needed to wait to read the copies sent to me by Netgalley.  When I finally sat down with His New Jam, …

Review of “Status Update” by Annabeth Albert

This was my second foray into LGBT romance–the first was The Belle vs. the BDOC from 90’s Playlist Anthology.  I did not enjoy that novella.  I was a little afraid to pick up another LGBT themed book, but the description on Netgalley had me excited about this book, so much so that I was chomping at the …
