Required Romance Reading: “The Unidentified Redhead”

Tiffanie: For February we chose a romance novel, because of the Valentine’s Day thing. So we searched for a romance novel with a heroine that wasn’t completely innocent (*cough 50 Shades cough*) and had a sense of humor that was similar to ours: meaning sarcasm. Through Goodreads and Amazon we came across Clayton’s novel “The […]

Tina Fey, can we please be related?

As I was perusing the shelves in Barnes & Noble as one does (I’m really praying they don’t go out of business, but that’s another matter), I came across Tina Fey’s Bossypants (image from a Google image search below if you wonder what my copy looks like) sitting pretty in some of the featured deals […]

Let’s Talk: Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Granted this will be a one sided conversation but a conversation nonetheless – basically you get to hear my opinion and then if you have any opinions that’d be cool, and then you can write a comment which would be even cooler, and then I’ll respond because I like chatting with people and then EVERYTHING […]

Stanley Kubrick, This Ain’t Some Visionary *Bleeeeep*

(NOTE: The Italic parts are Miranda interjecting, she didn’t have internet at the time I wrote this so she went and added her parts in after the fact. Now on to the post!) You all get a little more content than a normal week! On Halloween, per the brilliant decision of Miranda, *That’s me!*, we decided to […]

Literary Literate Tuesdays – Ain’t That a Tongue Twister

I’m assuming since you stumbled on to this here blog that you like books in some type of capacity or another, why else would you click on a blog that has the word “bookish” in the title. Now if I haven’t totally lost you there is a book that I just finished reading and would […]

The Shining by Stephen King, Tiff’s Take

First let me say, that I’m not highly read in the King universe. I’ve had some exposure with Uncle Stevie when he was a guest columnist on Entertainment Weekly. Here’s two of my favs (1) (2). That being said, I also don’t gravitate towards the horror section. I’m an easy sell in the Young Adult […]
