Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

I'm going apologize in advance for this review, because the majority of this is going to be dissecting the main character, MG, and why she's is the worst main character I've ever read, second only to Jazz from Artemis. If you want to skip to my review of the actual story, scroll down to the last … Continue reading Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

It has been a long time since I've read a book that made me want to just sit and finish it in one sitting, and in the past two weeks I've read two of them. One of them is the one in this review, A Darker Shade of Magic, and the other I'll review next … Continue reading Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

Recipe Review: Salmon & Spinach Pasta

Original recipe from this Nutrition Guide. Well, this recipe is a little different from the ones I usually do. This time, I'm not trying a recipe I found online.

ENG 513: Mansfield Park

All right. I'm going to come right out and say it: I only read about 1/3 of Mansfield Park. I just couldn't do it. It was so boring. I just couldn't get into it. I tried so very hard to read this book, but not only is it the longest book, but it's also the most … Continue reading ENG 513: Mansfield Park

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
