Confessions of a Double Major: My Favorite Major FINALLY REVEALED

Walking into my college career, I thought I had myself figured out. An aspiring history major who wanted nothing more than to take the campus by storm, become a leader in various organizations and land some kind of job in archival or a museam. Now, entering into my final year I think back on my… Continue reading Confessions of a Double Major: My Favorite Major FINALLY REVEALED

Author Audit: Katie Alender

While I was at work the other day I was rehashing some of my recent reads in my head. One of the books was by an author that I had read several books by, but I had never heard of her before I found her books. That seems to be a prevalent theme in my… Continue reading Author Audit: Katie Alender

Books to Read in Pairs

When I saw this tag on my reader I thought it said "Books to Read in Paris" and since I didn't see Anna and the French Kiss in the banner I got really offended and clicked on it in my rage. After reading Thrice Read's intro I soon released my mistake and calmed down enough… Continue reading Books to Read in Pairs

Why We Need More Sensitive Male Protagonists (ft. Newt Scamander)

I feel like this fits well into all my rants and posts about my displeasure with the way male protagonists aren’t portrayed. Male characters need to break down barriers too. I like this reading of Fantastic Beasts and of Newt and how that plays into the portrayal of men in fantasy and Sci-Fi!

My Paper Infinity

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an Infinity Talk, but I’m back now with a new discussion topic. As you can tell from the title, today’s topic is the male protagonist. More specifically, why we need more sensitive or otherwise atypical male protagonists instead of the same male characters we see being reused in every book and Hollywood movie.

I was inspired to write this post after watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a spin off movie about the famous Magizoologist from the Harry Potter universe. I watched the movie for the second time on Sunday after seeing it in the cinema when it released. Before I get started, I need to make a confession: I didn’t like Newt the first time I saw Fantastic Beasts. I thought he was bland, a tad boring, and lacked any real character development. While I thought the movie was…

June Wrap-Up

So you know that post I made that was all about my June TBR? Yeah, I don't think I followed that very well, surprise, surprise. I have a fallible weakness when it comes to libraries and books that are not on my designated reading list. But it's okay, because while I didn't work on my… Continue reading June Wrap-Up

Give Me Five Friday: 5 Movies I Will Always Rewatch

I don't watch a lot of new movies. Maybe it plays into how I never want to leave my house and go to the theatre, but there are a handful of movies that I find myself watching repeatedly when I want to fill the void and have nothing I feel like reading. So here's the… Continue reading Give Me Five Friday: 5 Movies I Will Always Rewatch
