Video of the Day–August 8th

I first saw RENT on Broadway two days before I graduated high school back in 2004–my dad took me to see it as a graduation present (my chorus performed Seasons of Love outside of Lincoln Center the month previously).  Your Eyes struck me as hauntingly beautiful. For those that have never seen the show, Roger meets Mimi …

Video of the Day for August 7th–A Permanent Lock

Today’s video is a bit long, but stick with it.   The relationship between General Hospital’s Lucky and Elizabeth was one of the first ones I shipped.  I remember watching this episode back in 1999 and thinking that it was all so incredibly romantic.  These were two characters that had been through a lot together (Liz’s …

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 …

Today’s Video is a Beast–and a Beauty

Today, I am starting Anna Campbell’s Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed, which is supposed to be a take on the Beauty and the Beast trope–even the cover harkens back to the Disney movie, the heroine wearing a yellow dress very similar to the one Belle wears in the iconic scene posted below. The first time …

An Extra Video–Blessing the Broken Road

I couldn’t resist posting another video today.  The book I am currently reading is The Look of Love by Bella Andre.  I’m not sure how I feel about this book; it definitely wasn’t what I expected–and not in a good way.  However, the one song that I keep thinking about as I read it is God Bless the …

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 …

Review of “Rites of Spring (Break)” and “Tap and Gown” by Diana Peterfreund

I hereby confess:  I spent the last two days devouring these books.  Devouring them. 🙂 I have to admit that had I seen the Ivy League novels at the library or a book story, I probably wouldn’t have given them a second glance, but thanks to Goodreads recommendations I found another series that I am sure …

Spending a Quiet Night…

At home watching a movie.  After spending an entire week reading while listening to old episodes of Friends on my computer, I decided that I would relax with an good, old fashioned movie night.  What am I watching, you ask?  Love Actually.  Yes, it is a Christmas movie and it is only June, but it is …
