FATHER: A girl’s first love and a boy’s first hero!, by Madhuri Palaji
My father used to be very strict. He talks less, smiles rarely, loves unconditionally and forgives thoroughly. I’m fortunate to have a father like him. He is my role model, my hero. I felt fathers were kind of underrated until recently. The Father’s Day helped, I guess. Still most of the kids don’t talk to […]
Passing The Torch, by Megan O’Russell
I grew up at the most amazing time. I know a lot of people would argue that the late 80’s/early 90’s were not a mecca for anything except poor fashion choices, but here are the perks that come with being an ’85 kid. The Little Mermaid was the Disney movie all my friends knew and […]

Shiver – Grace and Sam Shiver is pretty famous and has fans all over the world. I too fell for the hype and picked up the book. As the plot begins, we understand that Grace is in love with a wolf, yellow-eyed wolf – not the pet kind of love, but the romantic type of […]

Loving Mothers in Fiction, by Dani Eide
Mothers have been on my mind this month… it didn’t start with Mother’s day though.

This month we were asked what we wanted to see more of in the books […]

Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 11 – To Riverdale and Back Again, by Andrew Buckley
I have a theory on who killed Jason and why. But you’re going to have to read to the end to hear it. This week’s episode handed us a murderer wrapped up in a pretty little Skeet Ulrich bow, smoking gun in his closet, and nefarious partnerships with a well-known biker gang and an evil […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 10 – The Lost Weekend, by Andrew Buckley
I’ve often complimented the CW shows on their ability to tie up dangling plot points and sub story arcs in a timely manner. Many shows prefer to drag things out for multiple episodes and sometimes entire seasons (*cough* The Blacklist *cough*). This can get arduous and can result in story fatigue. Don’t laugh, it’s a […]
The Humanity (and Inhumanity) of Laughter, by Benjamin Sperduto
There’s a memorable passage in Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land in which the main character “discovers” that humans don’t laugh at things because they’re funny, but rather because they’re tragic. Every incident of humor he describes occurs at someone’s expense, a recognition of physical or emotional suffering. We laugh, he says, at the […]
