I feel like I can no longer call myself a Harry Potter fan, because this short story was “released” ten years ago, and I didn’t know it existed. I’ve always had a soft spot for the Marauders, although as I’ve grown older I recognize that they were definitely bullies. Still, I’ve always wanted Rowling to write a companion series about them (I’m all set with the sequels, plays, etc.). Another reason why I’m flabbergasted that I didn’t know about this short story. First of all, I need to point out that I really appreciate the Sirius Black pun. This is a […]

I first read The Witching Hour in a two-year struggle between my last year of high school and freshman year of college. At the time, I loved Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. I loved the vampires themselves, the richness of the settings (from New Orleans to France and Italy). I figured I’d love everything by Anne Rice, but The Witching Hour was such a drag… I had to force myself through. Let this be a lesson to you all – always write a review when you read a book. If you write a review, you’ll remember all the reasons you loved and hated a […]
This book is so fucking powerful. If y’all knew me in person, you’d know that I never swear. This calls for it. THE HATE U GIVE calls for something more – something bigger and louder and angrier. This book *needs* to be taught in high school. Every one – no matter your age, color gender, political stance… any of it… everyone needs to read this book. Why? Because it’s *important*. THE HATE U GIVE wasn’t written for me, but it did educate me to check my priveldge, to move out of the spotlight, to see justice no matter its color. […]
I think I need to come to terms with the fact that gaming books are not going to be a great genre for me. And that kills me because I LOVE IT when it’s done right. But when it’s not… I feel like I spend a lot of time going “you imbecile, NOBODY calls them ‘non-player characters’!!!” or flailing that nobody has a gorram health potion and OMG do writers not research MMORPGs before writing about them please just stop. Otherworld was super frustrating for me. First of all, I wanted to like it because I like Jason Segel as an […]
I came across the play on a slow day at work and read it before the shift was over. It is a wonderful (sad, but wonderful) reflection on the “Radium Girls” and their battle for justice, as well as a warning to even modern audiences regarding the proper treatment of employees, and caution in the face of the unknown. I loved the use of the historical figure Madame Curie in the play, and would love to see the play on stage.
