Top 5 Classes Based on Books/Characters

So usually Tuesdays are when I do a Top 5 Tuesday topic by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. This Tuesday, I wasn't a fan of the prompt and couldn't figure out how to get started after a few hours of staring at my screen (in-between snack runs, of course), so I decided to do a … Continue reading Top 5 Classes Based on Books/Characters

Tomorrow is Talk Like a Pirate Day

Book Review: “Brains: A Zombie Memoir” by Robin Becker

I picked up Brains: A Zombie Memoir on a whim at 2nd & Charles a few months ago. Since then, it's lived under my bathroom sink. It's taken me a few weeks to finish it, but now that I have, I find that it was...interesting. Becker's premise is that some of the zombies, after they turn, … Continue reading Book Review: “Brains: A Zombie Memoir” by Robin Becker

Edgar Allen Poe’s Murder Mystery Invite Only Dinner Party/Gala for Friends Potluck

Can I just say that that is probably the best title of anything I've ever seen? Last week my roommate and I stumbled across something on the depths of YouTube with the title you see above. We were curious, so we watched the trailer, which I'll put here for you now so I don't have to … Continue reading Edgar Allen Poe’s Murder Mystery Invite Only Dinner Party/Gala for Friends Potluck

What is ENG 100?

I realize I've mentioned the fact that I'm teaching a class called ENG 100 this semester, but I've never taken the time to explain what it is. So here's a short little explanation (and a tick towards the "write at least 4 blog posts a week" goal that I've set for myself) so you can … Continue reading What is ENG 100?

The Fall Book Tag!

I'm sure if you've been following along, you've seen me do Top 5 Tuesdays with the categories Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm creates. This time, Shanah's created her own book tag (!!!) and I've decided to do my first-ever book tag and play along wth everyone else. (Who knows? Maybe I'll like these.) While Shanah says everything's … Continue reading The Fall Book Tag!

Recipe Review: Mom’s Coconut Cream Pie

Hey again! You remember last week, when I treated you to my mom's lasagna recipe? I'm going to up the ante this time with her recipe for coconut cream pie. (It probably came out of one of my grandma's church cookbooks, honestly, but mom's got it memorized so I'm accrediting it to her.) You won't … Continue reading Recipe Review: Mom’s Coconut Cream Pie

Book Review: “Ex-Heroes” by Peter Clines

How would superheroes react to the zombie apocalypse? That's the question behind Peter Clines's Ex-series, the first of which is Ex-Heroes. Before the arrival of the zombie horde, ordinary humans wake up with the realization that they've gained superpowers of some sort. There's the man who can generate electricity (who, slight spoiler alert, is hooked up to … Continue reading Book Review: “Ex-Heroes” by Peter Clines
