Spring Is in the Air

Have you ever seen a hummingbird?  I’ve seen 3 in the last couple of weeks and watching them fly is so cool.  It looks like they’re just floating there in the air.  Obviously, their little wings are just flapping really quickly, but it doesn’t look like that.  Anyway, my point is that the birds are …

Video of the Day–Haters Gon Hate

Say what you want about this song, but Taylor Swift got one thing right–haters really are going to hate.  There are some people that are never going to like you; no matter what you do or say, you will never get their respect and you’re never going to impress them.  There’s a simple reason for …

Video of the Day–In Love with Books

In honor of Cinderella’s Shoes, which is coming out today, I wanted to post a song from my favorite Cinderella re-telling.  This is from the 1997 made for tv movie starring Brandy and Whitney Houston and this is probably my favorite song.  I also figured that it was perfect for a book blog since she’s singing …

Review of “When He Was Wicked” by Julia Quinn

Recently, I have been on a Bridgerton kick.  It started when I decided to re-read Romancing Mr. Bridgerton last week and continued with When He Was Wicked.  Having issues with To Sir Philip, With Love, I decided to skip that one and go straight to WHWW, hoping that I would enjoy yet another friends to lovers story.  Unfortunately, I …

Binging: Books, Television, and Movies

There was a time when binging was considered a bad thing–and in certain circles it still is, but with the over availability of digital content, whether that content is a book, movie, or television show, binging has taken on a whole new connotation.  I’m one of the many people that like to over dose on …
