Imaginative Discussions: Why I Am Thankful for How To Train Your Dragon

Imaginative Discussions: Why I Am Thankful for How To Train Your Dragon

July 2, 2014 Uncategorized 21

  Lyn here today, talking about one of my favorite movie franchises: Yes, this is a geek out about the How to Train Your Dragon movies.  The one with the cute dragon… …and the awesome scenery… …and the music… …and the VIKINGS. It was almost like destiny for me to turn into a huge fangirl, right? I do love all of the above things about the movie.  I flat out go screaming mad with JOY.  But there is also one small, subconscious element that is equally as special regarding the films.  more »

Book Review: The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart

Book Review: The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart

April 4, 2014 Bekka 4 ★★★★

I’ve been in a reading slump since the beginning of 2014.  It’s marked mostly by days-long bouts of not reading a word, and also a serious lack of attention span.  I just can’t seem to get into anything I’m reading, really, and have abandoned at least 8 books so far this year – probably more, but I stopped counting.  Ruby Oliver and all her shenanigans was the perfect remedy for this.  The Boyfriend List is hugely hilarious, sometimes painful, and exactly what I needed to bring me back to my more »

Book Review of The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

Book Review of The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

February 27, 2014 book review, Lyn 8 ★★

The School for Good and Evil sounded like Wicked for MG readers when I first ran across the book during a Waiting on Wednesday post a year ago. I had cover lust from the start.  When the reviews rolled out, the range of love and dislike were huge. I decided that I would take a chance on the book.

[Imaginative Discussions] – My Own Identity

February 12, 2014 Imaginative Discussions, Lyn 34

from Insanelygaming.com I have a wee little issue called social anxiety. I’ve already gone running to Kara many time over my soon-to-be freakout at BEA. I hardly leave the house unless I need to go shopping or get a cupcake. If a store is crowded, I tend to vacate the area at warp speed. I like to hide in big clothing and I hate to draw attention to myself. I’d rather go shopping or to the movies by myself. I’m a loner who will likely end up dying with 50 more »

Forgotten Fridays: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Forgotten Fridays: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

December 27, 2013 book review, forgotten fridays, Kara, Lyn 3

It’s three days after Christmas and I would venture a guess that hardly anyone is reading blogs right now. They are playing with their new gifts, eating yummy leftovers, and reading, reading all the new books they are going to get. Which is great but not such a good thing for this post. The show must go on, however, and this week we are chatting about Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, a book that I (Kara) chose. I had high expectations for this one because a lot of people love it, and well, more »
