Book Review: The Bright Side of Going Dark

The Bright Side of Going Dark by Kelly Harms is such a great read! I absolutely devoured it. Topical but not preachy, with well developed characters and a well paced plot, this novel sucked me and I could not put it down. Mia Bell is a top influencer with a big secret. When she takes a [...]

Of Mutts and Men Book Review

Way back in 2008, I was working at Barnes & Noble and found myself in the mystery section. Now, back in those old days I didn't really stray from my general fiction section.

Who is the Best Disney Prince?

Kristoff. Obviously. What, that isn't enough? Here are my reasons: Pet reindeer. What, still not enough?! Here's the real goods: Pet reindeer (it's worth mentioning twice! Animals are excellent judges of character. Plus it's clear he can take care of someone. He isn't self-centered like some other males we know (ahem Hans)). He's honest- to [...]

The Secret Message Hidden in Every Disney Movie

So I was lying in bed the other night, staring at the ceiling in another bout of pandemic insomnia and thinking about Disney movies (you know, as you do), and I had an epic epiphany. The same message I love from Frozen II can be found in every single Disney animated feature, and likely the Pixar ones [...]

What to Watch Now (and Where to Find it)
