Book Thoughts: This Will Only Hurt a Little

Book Cover - This Will Only Hurt a Little

So, I really, really love celebrity memoirs. Mainly because I have a fascination with Hollywood (as if you couldn’t tell from all my pop culture-y posts) and I love it when actors tell what it was like “Behind-The-Scenes,” especially if it’s about some of my favorite TV shows.  That’s why I was so excited to […]

Book Thoughts: *Starless* by Jacqueline Carey

June 12 was one of the greatest days I’ve had in recent memory. It started with a fairly regular morning. Then, I drove down to my old office neighborhood and met up with coworkers for lunch (it was also the first day I met my friend’s new baby). After lunch, two of my girlfriends joined […]

She Regrets Nothing: Book Thoughts

As I mentioned in my Ready Player One post, I’m terrible at writing reviews. I either give away too much or too little or don’t talk about the right (which I totally just started to type as write) things… so, even though I might use the TAG “Reviews” on this blog post, just think of it as my book thoughts, okay?
