But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds

I think I’m psychic sometimes.  Or I’m an evil witch who accidentally marks a person for death upon reading their autobiography.  Poor sweet dirty bird Burt Reynolds.  This book was so fun to read and incredibly interesting!  I love a good autobiography these days and I really enjoyed how this sounds how he talked. HisContinue reading “But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds”

I, Bificus–Bif Naked

Oh Biffy.  What has happened to you.  All the things. All the good and all the bad. And all the in-between things.  I’ve loved Bif since I was teeny little preteen and so much of my early teens was filled with her music. And I’m so glad to finally read her words on the thingsContinue reading “I, Bificus–Bif Naked”

Summers Read Part 2

I’m backed up. Not…not in the bowel department. I don’t know why I feel like I needed to clarify that when you’ll see in a minute that I mean book reviews. Either way. Here we are. In The Woods–Tana French This book was total trickery.  In that I didn’t realize it was a series. IContinue reading “Summers Read Part 2”

Summer Reads

Hello Puny Humans: I have a pile of reviews building that go as far back as two summers ago. Yeesh. Here’s the thing with life: Stuff happens to you and then other things are forgotten about. These books weren’t one of those things, but reviewing them was. Typical me. But here you go! Time toContinue reading “Summer Reads”

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany

I wish I had seen this in play form. This was so interesting and cool! Even though JK Rowling didn’t write the play itself, she did approve of this and it’s based on a short story she wrote. I missed my people. This is the only universe that’s ever felt completely like home to me.Continue reading “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany”

Paddle Your Own Canoe–Nick Offerman

If Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal, Nick Offerman is my disgruntled guardian angel. He has a special way of speaking and writing that is so inviting I’m looking forward to his other works. This book is so chock-full of wisdom that you come away a better person. Or at the very least, with someContinue reading “Paddle Your Own Canoe–Nick Offerman”

Roald Dahl

The Giraffe, The Pelly, and Me—Roald Dahl This book was short and sweet and so will this review be: This was about a little boy who was introduced to his new neighbours: a giraffe, a pelican, and a monkey. They had just moved in and were renovating a house to be their business. They wereContinue reading “Roald Dahl”

The BFG–Roald Dahl

The kid and I have moved on from short baby stories for the soul purpose of helping me to not keep reading the same story over and over again at nap time. Thus taking us over to his sisters collection of Roald Dahl books that I thought would be a safe bet when reading toContinue reading “The BFG–Roald Dahl”

The First Year

Today marks the first anniversary of Doomsday’s death. An anniversary that I actually never thought would come. I figured she would live until I died and then we would enter the ether together. Like a wizard and their Patronus. Instead she was handed to me by a heartbroken vet into my openly weeping embrace. IContinue reading “The First Year”

Matilda–Roald Dahl

The kid and I, well mostly me, decided to start reading all the Roald Dahl books in his sisters room after I had read the Disney stories until I could barf. (And I love Disney stories.) I basically knew the entire thing cover to cover, and it had pictures, and it was heavy to hold,Continue reading “Matilda–Roald Dahl”
