I’ve had it. It’s been three years since the world finally received closure via Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 2. Three years since everyone who didn’t read the books finally found out what happened to everyone in the Harry Potter universe, so that we could all breathe one, collective sigh of relief. At this point, those who belong to the Harry Potter fandom (“Potterheads”), get their fix from Harry Potter marathons on ABC Family, weird fan fictions, or trips to The Wizarding…

Happy Monday, everyone. For those of you who have been keeping up with these blog posts, you know that I’ve recently discovered the genius of Stephen King’s fiction novels. While my first experience with King’s writing came in highschool when I read On Writing: A Memoir of The Craft, it wasn’t until earlier this year that I started to explore his fiction work, beginning with The Shining, which I recently wrote a post for. And it seems as if I picked the perfect time…

Hey good people. Let me start this entry off by apologizing for my inconsistency with posting on this blog. I’ve been really busy over the last month, but I’m on my way to getting back on track with this blog, so stay tuned!   Now when it comes to books, I rarely ever read the same one more than once. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of books that I adore, but the thought of rereading when I could be…

Hey folks. So this week, I finally finished reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green, making it the fourth of his novels that I’ve read. Now, I don’t normally go hard for individual authors like that, but I have to say that John is quickly becoming one of my favorites. His books are extremely well-written, and his personal style is easy to pick up on and get into. Generally speaking, John’s books all share the same “coming of age” theme. His uncanny…
