A New Meme: Fiction to Film

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 […]

A Reading Slump

January 24, 2017 Whitney Uncategorized 4 Comments

I have been unmotivated in regards to reading and blogging.  I am in a slump.  It is not that I have lost interest in these hobbies but rather a dispassion towards our current society.  I have stated it before but one’s emotional state can really affect my reading experience and an orange has done it […]

Voldemort: the Villain with No Nose

A disagreement I commonly have with my boyfriend is not over taking the trash out but over Lord Voldemort.  Yes, you read that correctly, Lord Voldemort.  I grew up with the novels, said his name in hushed whispers and grew chills when he emerged from a graveyard.  My boyfriend, who chose National Geographic over Hogwarts […]

The world did not end when the Cubs won the World Series but after Tuesday’s election results I am more uncertain than ever and feel the “Cub’s Goat” is having the last laugh. I’m sure like many, I watched the election results in disbelief, it took me days to grasp the new reality and even […]

Review: Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin

One of the things that tempted me most to move to self-hosted WordPress was Ashley’s Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin. I loved the way the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin looked on other sites and had heard nothing but glowing reviews on it.  Therefore, when I finally made the switch to WordPress I knew it was a plugin […]

Release Date: May 13 Set in the 1790s, Love and Friendship centers on beautiful widow […]

Christmas in Merida

Christmas in Merida

As I have said in the past, my family almost never spends Christmas at home opting for warmer weather in places like Florida or Mexico.  In 2014 we spent the season in Merida Mexico.  Boasting close to one million people, it is the largest city in the Yucatan and considering I had only been to […]

November is for Epilepsy Awareness

November 2, 2014 Whitney Uncategorized 0 Comments

You may have noticed that the blog has gone purple.  Purple is the color for Epilepsy Awareness.  I myself have the disorder thus it is a very personal cause.   While it does not have football players wearing purple, epilepsy is as common as breast cancer and kills just as many.   65 million people’s […]

The Giver Movie Trailer

The Giver Movie Trailer

Last week I saw Transformers.  Right when you walked in the theater there was a poster for The Giver. Oh no! It is a Twilight wannabe. Maybe they’re trying to draw teens who didn’t grow up in the 90s. Yeah, that must be it.  But then I saw the trailer… Disappointment began. First off there […]
