Falling

tip-toeing to the precipice cautious i’ve fooled myself before guarded thoughts are flimsy in the fact of delicious temptation walking along the edge acclimating i’ve fooled everyone before the illusion of balance is convincing to the imaginative dancing right off the cliff smiling i’m done fooling myself the pleasure of the fall is worth any…

What I am reading…

Instead of The Secret Garden as promised, I opted to travel back to Westeros with A Storm of Swords. By happy accident, my choice coincided with my marathon re-watching of the series (I just started season 3!). As usual, I’m enjoying comparing/contrasting the book with the adaptation; so far, I have no criticisms only keen enjoyment……

2017 Reading Challenge

June 18, 2017 My goal this year is to read 30 books; according to GoodReads, I’m 5 books behind schedule, but I’m not worried. Yes, the year is almost half over, but I still have the rest of the summer and some school breaks to “rush” through a few novels 🙂 Rick Porrelo’s The Rise and…

What I am reading…

I read A Little Princess when I was a little girl, but all I remember about the story is from watching the 1986 mini-series (which, by the way, is practically word for word from the book). I’m about 75% done and, to be honest, I want to make it last a little longer! Next up is The…

Inferno: Book to Movie

I didn’t really care for Dan Brown’s Inferno, especially compared with his The DaVinci Code (which I love!). The plot was not as thrilling as previous ones have been, despite all the promise of Dante. When I rented the movie version, I was not expecting to be wowed, but wasn’t I expecting it to be a complete…

Can’t stay angry when there’s bacon!

OH MY GAWD! I want a large enough apartment that the smoke detector doesn’t go off every time I DON’T BURN THE BACON!!! đŸ˜€ P.S. Expletives deleted because – though I am PISSED!! – I realize this is a 1st world problem) 😔 P.P.S. It doesn’t help that the detector’s screeching terrifies my pup. 😣 P.P.P.S. My…

What I am reading…

I love Amy Schumer. “Trainwreck” is one of my favorite comedies and so when I found out that she based some of the plot on her life – especially her relationship with her father – I immediately wanted to read her memoir. But… I didn’t immediately get a hold of the book, however. Luckily, I have…

2017 Reading Goal

This is a bit late, and for that I do most humbly apologize. Last December, I decided that this year’s reading challenge would be more of a goal: 30 books read in 2017. I decided against a list of criteria that I need to check off (after finding impossibly titled or colored or themed books); instead,…

What I am reading…

I made the mistake of watching Angels and Demons before reading the book, and it ruined the story for me. It was weird, because I did the same thing for The DaVinci Code but didn’t experience the same disappointment. Hmmm… I’m about half way through Inferno and I have to admit that it’s nice to be back in…
