The Spring Into Horror Read-A-Thon hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict is a little more than half-way over and I have been very bad at updating throughout the week so instead I am doing a midway post. I haven’t read as much as I would have liked but have managed to read about twelve hours within in […]

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon starts in a few hours and like a colonoscopy it’s in need of over-night prep.  I’ll be going to bed early tonight in anticipation for a long day of reading. I have been thinking not only about my stack of books but also the rationing of caffeine.  Like the proper book, caffeine […]

I saw The Hunger Games this afternoon and let me tell you, it was awesomeness!  After having finished and loved the novel, I was excitedly anticipating seeing the film.  I patiently waited for the hub to die down (I didn’t want to be stuck in a theater full of middle schoolers).  So I waited, and […]

This past Thursday was my book club meeting in which we discussed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This was a very difficult book to bring about talking.  Many of the members found it confusing, difficult to follow, and/or boring.  On top of that out six myself and another were the only ones who finished […]

Review: The Hunger Games

Review: The Hunger Games

I had no idea what to expect when I first opened The Hunger Games.  All I knew was that 12-year-olds attempt to kill each other.  As I got further in the same phrase kept popping into my head “this is fucked up!”  like “Survivor” on crack, and crack is whack. Right about here I should […]

How Do You Review?

Posted April 11, 2012 by Whitney in Uncategorized / 10 Comments

As the title states, I ask how do you write your reviews?  Are you a note taker, studying the text meticulously as you read or do you wait until you have finished to sit down and share your thoughts in a collective manner?  I had been a sit down at the conclusion kind of girl […]
