{Like This, Read That} Shelter from the Storm by Bob Dylan

This particular feature is still being figured out, but as I’ve done TV shows (Gilmore Girls, Twin Peaks) and books (‘Salem’s Lot), I thought I might try a song. When I’m not feeling particularly great, I listen to Bob Dylan – and there’s been a lot of Bob Dylan listening lately. Anyway, ‘Shelter from theContinue reading “{Like This, Read That} Shelter from the Storm by Bob Dylan”

Dinner Party: A Guest List

*Fair warning: My dinner parties never look like this.* So…dinner parties. I like them. While I’m not fond of hosting parties, I do like attending them (assuming the food is good). Good food is essential. In a perfect world, fictional characters would be just as likely to attend as family and friends (and in someContinue reading “Dinner Party: A Guest List”

Wanted: A Top Ten List

My birthday is in July. In case you needed to know… (This week’s list: bookish things I want – aside from books. Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.) 10. The Perversions of Quiet Girls. This book is fake, but I want it to be real. 09. Fox Pillow Cover. For my library. I’m not sureContinue reading “Wanted: A Top Ten List”

All Grown Up: A Top Ten List

Often what we read and fall in love with as children sticks with us long into adulthood – this is true of me, at the very least. While beloved classics of my childhood may not hold up under my more discerning adult scrutiny (ahem, Nancy Drew), that does not mean that I don’t get allContinue reading “All Grown Up: A Top Ten List”

And I’m Expected To Swoon? A Top Ten List

Swoon: To be overwhelmed by ecstatic joy, a state of ecstasy or rapture. Used online as an action, to show that someone is attracted or interested in someone or something. (Urban Dictionary) I’ve already listed my favorite romances, couples I think would make it in the real world, and fictional men I’d find attractive (ifContinue reading “And I’m Expected To Swoon? A Top Ten List”

Guidance Counseling: A Top Ten List

(To be quite honest, I am totally stumped as to this week’s top ten prompt as hosted by The Broke and the Bookish – I’ve already done settings I’d like to see more of, things I avoid, and topics I want more of – so you get the following instead. I am so sorry.) IContinue reading “Guidance Counseling: A Top Ten List”

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: Literary Mixtape

Without a doubt, Jane Eyre is my favorite classic novel. It may even be one of my favorite novels period. I relate to Jane on many, many levels. Primarily, I always felt just like her: poor, obscure, plain and little. Beyond that, I respected her for not compromising herself to obtain something she desired. ItContinue reading “Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: Literary Mixtape”

Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts: A Top Ten List

I love lists. No surprise there. I have a whole tab dedicated to lists. I love Top Ten Tuesday, even if it is primarily dedicated young adult fiction (which is great, just not what I typically read). However, on occasion there’s a topic that really doesn’t interest me – like today’s (favorite secondary characters). SoContinue reading “Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts: A Top Ten List”

One Too Many: A Top Ten List

I have issues with sequels and series. You might be thinking “what don’t you have issues with?”, but I hope you’re not. If you were wondering, I don’t have issues with salted caramel, people who like to read, or the month of October – I love all of those things. I do, as I said,Continue reading “One Too Many: A Top Ten List”
