Stardust, Neil Gaiman – An Audiobook & Movie Review

My favorite thing about (most) Neil Gaiman audiobooks is that they're narrated by the author. The only one I've heard that wasn't is Anansi Boys, but I really liked that narrator (Lenny Henry) as well. I highly recommend checking if your local library has any of Gaiman's self-narrated novels - read them while you commute! … Continue reading Stardust, Neil Gaiman – An Audiobook & Movie Review

Update!

Believe it or not – the first thing I want to do after reading most books/watching most movies is not sit down at the computer to write down my feelings. At least these last two weeks have been that way. Luckily I had some drafts to publish in the interim! I have The Perks of … Continue reading Update!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – A Psalm of Life

I can't remember the first time I read the poem 'A Psalm of Life' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but it stuck with me. I remembered a line of it, and years later, typed it into a google search hoping that the poem I'd remembered would present itself near the top. Luckily, it did, and I've … Continue reading Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – A Psalm of Life

(Houghton Mifflin Company Edition) Although I’ve heard of The Hobbit many times throughout my life, I didn’t read it until recently. I’m not really sure why.

Jane Eyre – 1996 Movie Review

This weekend I started my one month free trial of Netflix – just so I could watch a movie adaptation of Jane Eyre. There were two to choose from, although I know there are quite a few more: The 1986 TV mini-series starring Timothy Dalton as Rochester and Zelah Clarke as Jane, and the 1996 … Continue reading Jane Eyre – 1996 Movie Review

The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I hope everyone had a very lovely Valentines, with whoever you have to share love with. Perhaps a girlfriend, a husband, a sister, or mother – Valentine’s is the day of love. Although I have a lovely boyfriend to share my life with, our night didn’t end up being very romantic. We had planned on … Continue reading The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

Jane Eyre, A Reading Journal – through Lowood School

Who knew? Who would have remotely guessed that I, a tomboy from childhood, only recently becoming feminine in the least, would find her absolute literary companion in a Romance novel from the 19th century in the form of Jane Eyre. Not I, I can assure you, but that is exactly what happened. So far, I … Continue reading Jane Eyre, A Reading Journal – through Lowood School
