Looking for AlaskaLooking for Alaska by John Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What starts off as a seemingly innocent story of a boy in search of redefining himself ends up being a touching story of said boy coming to terms with one of life’s greatest questions.

Ever since I read The Fault in Our Stars I’ve been interested in John Green’s writing. Looking for Alaska is my third John Green book (also read Paper Towns

Live Blog: BET Hip Hop Awards

Show hasn’t been in for 5 minutes and I already feel 100 years old.
These “no flex zone” kids have me very
confused.

Nelly & some girl
Whoever that is

Best collabo
My hitta people are gonna win.
Sure enough.
I have no idea who these people are but I know that song.

My son saying “turn up” is the best thing ever. Lol!!

I enjoyed reading Paper Towns yet found myself not connecting to nearly 85% of it.

Therein lies my problem with this book.
Why?
Why does Q feel so responsible…

Fall TV 2014

falltv2014
 
It’s that time of year.
The time of less Netflix and more network TV programming.
Last week brought the return of old friends while, this week, I’m looking forward to meeting some new ones.

I’ve decided to increase my new show test to 4 episodes.
You should never judge a show by its pilot (1st episode).
Network exes come in with their notes and things change by the 2nd ep.
By the 3rd episode,…

Movie Review: If I Stay

Movie Review: If I Stay #ifistay #miahall #adamwilde #moviereview

if i stay

 
 
I love this movie so much.

If I Stay is a beautifully honest and emotional adaptation of Gayle Forman’s incredible book (which is a top 10 all time favorite of mine).

Chloe and Jamie are so good as Mia and Adam. They have great chemistry and they made this fangirl very, very happy.

Chloe is as captivating as I thought she would…

This summer I spent a good amount of time at the movies.
Didn’t really have the time to write individual reviews for each movie so I thought I’d compile my thoughts in one massive blog.

I present to you the movies that made up my summer in order from ‘LOVED IT!!’ to ‘Biggest pile of garbage I’ve seen’.

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

Love…
