Beauty and the Beast 2017

I saw Beauty and the Beast last week and was more than happy to be their guest. I really liked that the opening introduction stayed truer to the original story than the 1991 animated film. Instead of the Beast appearing because Belle’s father trespassed Maurice is jailed for taking a rose. This was a nice […]

A New Meme: Fiction to Film

I’ve stated it before, but I’m a sucker for a film that has been adapted from a book. I’m not sure what it is because the book is almost always better than its adaptation, yet I still love seeing a story come to screen. Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of films that fit this […]

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff could easily have been yet another novel about surviving WWII. At first, I was nervous as it seemed to mirror Water for Elephants and while that in itself is a good story I found the ending to be disappointing. Therefore, I hoped for a different result. Fortunately, I was […]

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

The best way to describe the novel The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney is to compare it to The Royal Tenenbaums but without the understated humor. The Plumb children were self-absorbed, entitled and while adults acted like children. In short, the characters were all unlikable and were not the reason I became invested in the […]
