Jackie Movie Review

Last Wednesday, I went to a screening of Jackie. This was the third free screening that I had attended at various theaters around Atlanta in less than three weeks.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Let’s talk Throne of Glass. I think this was the fastest I’ve ever read (listened to) an audiobook. I picked it up (not literally) because everyone online raves about it, has been raving about it.

We watched them all—all, that is, except for The Martian. We deftly avoided The Martian because—you can probably see this coming—I wanted to read… Continue reading The Martian

Far from the Madding Crowd Movie Review

In the beginning of the movie, Bathsheba Everdene (played by Carey Mulligan) promises that she will astonish everyone. And astonish them she does. Everdene is an orphan and a farmer who, after a stroke of good fortune (or bad fortune, it depends on how you view the death of an uncle), inherits an extremely wealthy… Continue reading Far from the Madding Crowd Movie Review
