Movie Review: Mockingjay Pt 1

Movie Review: Mockingjay Pt 1

November 23, 2014 Bekka, movie review 0

I just got home from seeing Mockingjay Part 1 during the Thursday night premier and I HAD to have an outlet to purge all of my feelings. I loved this book series and Mockingjay was my favorite book of the three – I know, I’m in the minority here. So I had quite a lot of expectations and some trepidations especially since it was split into two movies. I’m actually pleasantly surprised by tonight’s outcome. I loved a lot of this movie, even though it was a bit on the more »

Stacking the Shelves #108

Stacking the Shelves #108

November 22, 2014 Bekka, Stacking the Shelves 5

Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews Hey everyone. I am exhausted. It’s been a week since the in-laws moved here and I’ve just been SO TIRED. There have been people at my house so much. We took their damn guinea pig and it makes SO MUCH NOISE. Mike’s been constantly at their house helping them with one thing or another. And for some reason, the crickets we bought for the frogs this week have been insanely noisy – random and unrelated but still, I haven’t slept well in more »

Book Review: The Snow Child

Book Review: The Snow Child

November 21, 2014 book review, Lyn 2 ★★★★★

The Snow Child was an impulse buy during a book scouting trip last year.  I spotted the beautiful cover on the featured shelf, and the name of the book and the art really spoke to me.  It looked like the perfect cold-day comfort novel. This pick was our next choice for Forgotten Fridays, but for now, the feature will be on hold until the first of the year. I plowed ahead with the reading, since I am always so impatient for winter weather. We just do not get a long break more »

Imaginative Discussions: NaNo Check-Up

Imaginative Discussions: NaNo Check-Up

November 19, 2014 Bekka, Imaginative Discussions 3

We just passed the halfway point of NaNoWriMo and I thought I’d write about how the whole ordeal is going for me. I love NaNoWriMo. I have terrible time management skills and I’m just really bad at setting a deadline for myself and following through. So NaNo is the kind of environment I thrive in and every year is a lot of fun. Word Count Well, I’m exactly on track, which is good! But not quite good enough. I “won” Nano last year on the 15th. Last year the words more »
