One of my favorite movies is The Princess Bride. R.O.U.S.’s (Rodents Of Unusual Size) are real. Meet Patrick, 2-year-old wombat…that is one large rodent. Keep on the lookout for the six-fingered man, and I’m going to go watch Wesley and Buttercup. As you wish, Jessica

As school starts up again, I started thinking about books (What? I can’t help it. I love books) and what students are going to be assigned to read this year. Some of them can be a struggle to finish (believe me, I remember) but not all of them are dry dusty old tomes that you’ll […]

August 23, 2014 ushered in a new Doctor for the well-loved series, Doctor Who as Peter Capaldi takes over the role from Matt Smith. Okay, as you know, I’m anti-spoilers here, so please email any spoiler-y comments or questions to me at email@example.com.

I don’t compulsively tell puns…that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy it from time to time…I can be very puny! Fine, occasionally I just can’t resist.

Okay, so I’ve watched the new episode and the specials…twice, but I’m still letting it stew about in my brain a bit. I have lots of unorganized thoughts. Did any of you watch the new episode of Doctor Who? What did you think? Let me know. I’ll have something going up in about this in a […]

The Fault in Our Stars may have been the first book I’ve read by the insanely popular young adult author, John Green, but it was so good, it ensured it wouldn’t be the last. Looking for Alaska made the journey to Boston with me, and I, for some reason, didn’t think that reading it on […]

Recently, I read another J.D. Robb novel, Concealed in Death, and unlike the last one, this one rejuvenated my enthusiasm for the series until I really started thinking about it. Yes, I had no idea who’d “done” it. My suspicions were confirmed, but I didn’t know how they’d pulled the whole thing off until it was […]

I’m dipping my foot into the world of comic books, slowly but surely. Apparently, I started off at what people who know comic books tell me is the top, Sandman. I’ve been warned that I may be let down by others, but after finishing Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed Sandman several people recommended Saga. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to […]

A few years ago, I discovered Kelly Armstrong’s Otherworld series, and read as fast as my little brain could go. (although I’ve been seriously lax, because I found several books on her site that I hadn’t read yet!) I really enjoy Elena, Jeremy, Clay and the others in this world, so when I saw there was […]

I know. I’m a bad blogger. Lately I’ve kind of become a bit of a hermit, but all that’s changing. I’ve missed you guys! My hermit status has been good for quite a bit of reading, so this will be the first of several new book reviews. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom […]
