Book vs. Film: A Wrinkle in Time (SPOILERS!)

Posted May 31, 2019 in Bookish Things // 3 Comments

This movie was such a hot mess for me.  The plot was so messy and conformed to YA Contemporary standards where this is a classic YA fantasy novel… it just made me so sad in so many ways.  I’m going to go through the story now, and this is super ranty because I was typing as I watched… so be prepared! If you go back and read my review of A Wrinkle in Time, you’ll see I said one of my favorite parts of the book – of any book ever actually – was the first chapter.  Meg’s unsettled feelings […]

10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

One of the things that I love about reading is how easy it is to get sucked into a story, as if you were really there.  When he world around you gets tough – whether it’s at a global level or just your own bubble – it’s nice to be able to escape somewhere.  I’m sure that the characters in the books may not agree, considering all their misfortunes… but sometimes, I wish I could step into their shoes for just a day. Here’s a few people who tempt me!              Thursday Next The Eyre Affair […]

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

Hi all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the longest books you’ve ever read.  While this is a great topic, it’s very similar to The Mountain Book Tag which I did earlier this year, so rather than repeat content, I thought I’d bring you a different top ten… one of my very own. This week, I want to talk about my top 10 book tags!  This isn’t in regard to Book Tags in the traditional sense… these are subject tags I use on my LibraryThing account.  For all the books I’ve read, I go through and tag them with […]

January Wrap Up

January Wrap Up

Posted January 29, 2018 in Checking In // 24 Comments

2018 is off to a roaring start, n’est pas, mes chers?  I’ve not been subtle about how much 2017 stunk for me, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the way January has unwound so far.  I hope everyone else has had a good start, too! The Monthly Book Haul I ended up with quite a good haul this month – after a slow December on NetGalley, I ended up being granted 5 books.  I timed my requests so that there’s nothing immediate, so reading them shouldn’t be a challenge (The Phantom Tree releases in August!). I believe there’s a lot of little ones […]

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Posted January 23, 2018 in Reviews // 2 Comments

  Of all the books I’ve read across my twenty-eight years, the opening of A Wrinkle in Time is still among my favorites.  An old, dusty attic.  A howling windstorm outside.  A girl lying in bed, listening to the weather, terrified.  And angry that she is so afraid. This is Meg Murray, one of the original YA heroines. I want to try a bit of a different review style with this book.  One of my goals this year is to improve my reviews so they flow better.  I’m going to try a bulleted review… let me know if this reads better […]
