Fictional Crushes

I’ve posted before about book boyfriends but I thought it might be fun to list some of my other favourite fictional crushes, from television shows and movies. I’ve never really crushed on real-life people all that much (even when I was younger). That felt like taking it a step too far. But the characters they play? Well, that’s a whole different story! Fictional Crushes I have fairly eclectic tastes in […]

DS9: An Overview

The Background Deep Space Nine is my favourite Star Trek series. No, more than that, it is my favourite television series of all-time. It definitely didn’t start out that way though.

You may even have noticed if you follow this blog that I tend to reminisce about books I read when I was younger, films that I loved, toys that I can remember playing with […]

Best of 2014: A to Z

I have posted previously about my favourite books of 2014 but I thought it would be fun to do a more general post with the things that really got me excited this year. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – this was definitely my favourite book of 2014 – Benjamin Alire Sáenz is an amazing writer. Everything about this book was sheer perfection. Beats Headphones – I love these! I […]
