The Romance Reader Vlog #3

I swore I posted this the other day, but I guess the post didn’t go live.  In the third installment of the Vlog, I talk about the different books I’ve been reading lately and why none of them actually worked for me.  Mentioned are The First Love Cookie Club, which I reviewed the other day, and …

Video of the Day: The Movie That Defined The 1990’s

You have to hand it to Amy Heckerling; she managed to do what few directors did before or after–define two generations with two extremely successful movies.  In the 80’s, she made Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which is still one of my mom’s favorite movies, and in the 90’s she brought us Clueless, which is one of …
