If you haven't already seen The Room do yourself a favor and find a midnight showing. Have a drink beforehand, maybe another. Bring plastic spoons. Trust me, you're going to love this.

If you've already enjoyed the full experience of The Room then rea

Sweet Life by Mia King
Sweet Life

I picked this up because I loved Mia King's Deidre McIntosh books, Good Things and Table Manners. I generally like the idea of upending that fantasy everyone gets on vacation: why don't we move here?! Well, this answers that question. I do like that ...more

I decided to read this after I found myself screaming, "I'm trying to make these holidays f-ing magical!" at no one in particular.

At first glance it would seem that the author and I were at similar places - wanting to understand how to actually enjoy

I Have Nothing To Wear! by Jill Martin
Rate this book

Because God forbid I do even the most mundane task without some level of research.

The first sections were pretty good: solid advice. Unfortunately for me, I already live that part of the book. I am the anti-hoarder. I gut my closet multiple times a y

Supernatural fandom is not to be talked about... except it seems everyone now is doing just that. Or perhaps I'm listening for it now. Why so hush hush? In a word, shame. And I think most of us in the fandom (or any fandom) feel that way for some rea ...more

More Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin
Rate this book
Clear rating
For as much as I loved the first book in the series, this one just didn't grab me in the same way. It was okay, but that's it. There's one glimmer of the original genius in a line at the very end of the book, but other than that, it's so so.

Because viruses aren't frightening enough I read a twenty year old book about an Ebola outbreak that occurred 25 years ago in a town thirty miles from my house.

The Hot Zone is riveting, although the last section is superfluous. I understand the autho

An enjoyable, funny, and (little bit) creepy read. If you are hesitant to pick this up because you already watched the television series, don't worry that won't ruin anything. Without giving anything away, I'll just say that Henry isn't even a charac ...more

On the Backroad to Heaven by Donald B. Kraybill

I read this, admittedly decade old, book because I wanted to learn about Hutterites and this is what my local library had available without getting a loan from an university. Having grown up in Pennsylvania I was somewhat familiar with Mennonites and ...more
