Actually I’m not sure what’s so holly-jolly about this post except that I’m full of Christmas cheer these days–and on that happy note, I was thrilled when Jamie of Through Two Blue Eyes tagged me in this fun challenge! Without further ado…allons-y! (That’s French for “let’s go.” *wink*) (And by the way, all of the […]

You never know what things will lead to, y’know? I watched Victoria a little over a month ago, fell head-over-heels in love with the story of one of England’s greatest queens, and came up with a delightful idea for a NaNoWriMo project. Which, by the way, is coming along swimmingly. I’m working on my synopsis (somehow it’s […]

I’m officially calling 2017 “The Year of the Historical Miniseries,” haha! First I fell in love with Band of Brothers. Then I saw Wolf Hall (which was good, though I had my quibbles). Then my parents and I started a re-watch of Call the Midwife (and it’s as wonderful as ever). And now, I just finished this beautiful, inspiring miniseries: I’ve already […]

Summer is, to be perfectly honest, my least favorite time of the year. The heat is sticky and smothering, and school is out…which means there isn’t nearly as much structure as Yours Truly normally enjoys. I’m remembering some words of wisdom my World War II-veteran friend told me last week at church, though. When I […]

“I am Diana, Princess of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta…and in the name of all that is good, your wrath upon this world is over.” With that line, Wonder Woman pretty much guaranteed her cinematic future. If box office sales over the past few weeks are any indication, people are gonna line up to see Justice League in November just so they can […]

[This post was written for the 3rd Annual Favorite TV Show Episode Blogathon, hosted by A Shroud of Thoughts.] My family and I enjoy classic TV shows, from I Love Lucy and The Big Valley to Magnum P.I. and Murder, She Wrote–and, of course, Star Trek. Reviewing an episode that had to be older than 1992 for the Favorite TV […]

I don’t even quite remember how we got on the subject or why my dad suggested that we start watching it (and it’s a fourth or fifth re-watch for him and my mom)…but somehow about a week or so ago, I started watching Band of Brothers.  GUYS. This show. I haven’t fallen this deep into a fandom since […]

There are four historical films I really want to see this year: Sully, which actually came out last autumn;  Hidden Figures, released on Friday; Dunkirk, directed by Christopher Nolan and due for release this summer; and Jackie, released in December. I have a long-time interest in and admiration for Jacqueline Kennedy. When I was little–9 or 10 years old–my mom let me pick […]

Hi, peeps! Time for a Currently Post because “I’m running out of time I’m running out of time and my time’s UP, rise UP, eyes UP!” And no, that reference does NOT mean I’m about to duel Aaron Burr–but time seems to be slipping out of my fingers these days and a “Currently Post” is all […]

This movie review is dedicated to the family and friends who put up with my shrieking every time new set pictures came out, my hyperventilating when Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot showed up unexpectedly at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, and my whispering every time someone said something nice about Ben Affleck, “Yeah well, I liked Batfleck before […]

A thousand and one thanks to Miss Elisabeth Grace Foley for sending me this tag–because just like her, I’ve been so engrossed in my own novel writing that I’ve had little time to spare on blogging. But attention Fellow Novelists: go check out her blog! I know she and I have been running in the […]

“They seek him here, they seek him there, those Frenchies seek him everywhere…” So, umm, in case anyone hasn’t noticed, I’ve had a little button on my blog sidebar…right there, underneath my Fanfiction.net profile button thingy…about the upcoming web series, Masked. This web series, put together by my dear online buddies Amy Dashwood and Alexandra Rovirosa (plus their […]

This one looks like so much fun–thank you Ivy Miranda for tagging me! So sorry it’s taken me so long to get to it, though…’twasn’t intentional. Female characters…female characters have always been SO difficult for me. If you look at my list of favorite fictional characters, the overwhelming majority are male, and I’m not sure if […]

[Reposting because of technical difficulties with the first version. So sorry about that!] So I was alerted to this via Tumblr the other day and loved the idea. Today is the day where we give our favorite authors and their stories a big shout-out, so I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite stories that I’ve collected on my […]

I have never agonized so much over a book review, not even when I reviewed The Hunger Games. There’s just been so much passionate controversy swirling around Harper Lee’s first draft of (and semi-sequel to) her novel To Kill a Mockingbird. It seems like you either love it or you hate it, and there’s little to no “in-between.” Not […]

Me 12 months ago: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is going to be awesome, just watch.” People 12 months ago: “Yeah right. It’s gonna FLOP, Ben Affleck will never be convincing as Batman, Man of Steel was such a TERRIBLE movie, and a sequel will only drive the DC Cinematic Universe deeper in the ground.” (*skip forward […]

Now that we’re into Season 2 of Star Trek: The Original Series, I thought I’d give my mini-reviews of the episodes we watched from the first one. And lo and behold, they ARE arranged in order of favorite to least-favorite! I was able to do that for once. Wonders never cease. 1. “The City on the Edge of Forever” […]

Our parents pulled a surprise on us Friday evening and announced that the next morning we’d all go and see Pixar’s latest film, Inside Out! Needless to say, the house erupted in a chorus of cheers at the news, and it didn’t matter if you were 5 or 23 or–well, I won’t say how old my […]

Well, the unthinkable has happened. My dad and sister roped me into watching some stupid-awesome show called Star Trek–and now I’m running around doing Vulcan salutes and mentally sobbing over phrases like “Second star to the right and straight on till morning.” To paraphrase Pietro Maximoff, I did not see this coming. But before we get into this interesting post, I […]
