Review: John Dies At The End

Review: This book was an exercise in insanity!  This is not the first time I’ve said this about a book, and considering there are two sequels to this, it won’t be the last!   Sometimes I’m not sure if I’m too generous with my book ratings, or if I just have superb taste and amazing…

Review: Go Ask Alice

Review: I don’t know what to say about this book.   I don’t know how I feel about this book.    This book was haunting. It was horrifying.  It was sad. It was heartbreaking.   This is basically a handbook for what not to do when you’re a teenager.  This poor girl.  I can’t even…

Review: The Joy Luck Club

Family Fun

So we had family night on Friday and decided on Movie Tavern.  For anyone who’s unsure what that is, it’s basically a movie theater where you can order dinner, dessert, snacks, drinks to your seat throughout the movie.  It’s fab!    So we went to see the Hitman’s Bodyguard–which was not at all what I expected–but…
