happy holidays


I hope you all are ready for that influx of family and forced family time over the next few days. I’m not.

Harry Potter all day, every day!





This one has so many possible answers: Belle/Matilda/Jo March. I was (still am) always stuck in a book just like these characters. Of course, my life was never anywhere near as dramatic as these women’s but…you know. Also, HP was my entire childhood.





home alone

1984 by George Orwell which speaks to the government being overly involved in our daily lives (I see you Big Brother). It was a worry then, and it’s a worry now.


T.H.U.G. by Angie Thomas. This one I’m predicting just based off of its current impact alone. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of my own.







This one might hurt some feelings for those Selection lovers out there but The Elite by Kiera Cass. Girl why???? Book one was mushy and fluffy and all of the good things about YA Romance and then came book two with an unnecessarily dragged out love triangle. Nah. Nah!







The Graveyard Book, mainly because there were so many more things I wanted to learn about the characters. I didn’t want Nobody to ever leave that cemetery. More please Mr. Gaiman. Please!


Aaaanyway, this is the last post from me until after Boxing Day (Dec. 26) as that’s my grandfather’s birthday. Lots to do!

Guilty Pleasure: Movies Edition

Remember that one time when I told you all my favorite TV shows, and said that I might share my favorite movies? Well, you’re welcome!

Grease (1978)



I honestly couldn’t tell you how old I was when I first saw this gem, but I can tell you that I was hooked from the first instance. The singing, the dancing! Danny Zuko in those tiiiight jeans! Rizzo and her hot mess storyline, and sweet, innocent Sandy. I wanted to be a part of the gang.

This is probably why I became addicted to redemption arcs.



Hairspray (2007)



The body positivity and overall message of loving your brother regardless of race, size or social standing just tugged at my heartstrings. This is one of those shows that just stay with you forever.

Plus, it’s a musical and musicals are my weakness…soooo…yeah.



Would it be obvious if I said the HP movies? Yes? Ohhhhh well…

Harry Potter (1 -7)

To this day there are very few books that I can say have resonated with me as with the HP series, and that love translates as equally to the movies. There is no particular time that I watch these movies, whenever it’s on, I sit there and binge. Or sometimes the mood will hit and I’ll have my own personal marathon.

I even converted mummy, so I feel like my life’s work is complete!



Pretty Woman (1990)



Judge not, lest ye be judged. This movie taught me that lesson in the most real-world way imaginable. Also, the reason I love rags to riches tropes as well. You know what? That’s going to be my next guilty pleasures list.



Pretty much any Molly Ringwald/John Hughes movie

Quintessential eighties nostalgia wrapped up in a movie. Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles…etc…, I love them all. Molly is the constant underdog who rises to the top…


Honorable mentions

Hocus Pocus (1993)

hocus pocus

When is the second one coming? They’ve been teasing it for ages, and I’m only getting older and pining away. What are you doing to me???


Scary Movie 2 (2001)


Yes, it’s hella problematic, but I just can’t help it. I laugh at all the same places regardless of how many times I’ve seen it. What is wrong with me??

There are so much more than just these 2 but…if I don’t stop here I’ll make a list that’s at least 20 movies long…



Until next time, keep reading/watching
