Book Review: Villette by Charlotte Bronte

Movie Review: Tolkien

I have a confession to make: I've only read one book out of the four Lord of the Rings books... and it was for school. I know. Shameful. I'll be amending that soon enough though.

Movies The Notebook  This actually was my first time seeing this (I know, I know, what a shameful teenage girl I... Continue Reading →
