The literary musings and rantings of a Tolkien fan, combined with occasional decorating and fanfiction nuttiness, as well as being a writer for the Femnista webzine.
I am a Christian, a beginning knitter, an intermediate crocheter, a hoop

I picked this book up this morning and finally set it down before heading to work tonight, having finished the whole thing in a matter of hours. It's one of those stories where you just can't stop reading because you're terrified of what...
There are exemplary Christian historic romances and there are rotten ones. Blue Moon Promise falls somewhere in between. While Colleen Coble does not have the power to move her readers like Karen Witemeyer, she still develops likeable he...
Not the best or most accurate depiction of what actually occurred on the Titanic and lags dreadfully in the middling to end with a stronger finish than I expected. The book could have been much better and I wish it had been.
We're back with Thomas again, and just when the Gladers thought they were safe, it turns out, well, not so much. Now, the surviving Gladers must wend their way through 100 miles of scorching hot desert to a safe haven where they will be ...
This book is the 1st in The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. I picked it because I'm starving for dystopian teen literature from a boy's perspective. And while the storyline is intriguing, the book itself is so repetitive and poorly ...
Looks like I should probably clarify a few things about my previous Sherlock Holmes posts. :-)
You know the ones, where I prefer the recent films to Sherlock?
As it turns out my opinion really wasn't set in stone. Makes me wonder if I should hold off on posting certain thoughts until I've given them a few weeks to simmer. In this case the new Downey Jr. film makes me nervous and uneasy because of the gay overtones. Yes, they are there and no, I don't like them. They became more obvious to me the more I thought about them and within a few months I realized I likely would never watch Game of Shadows again.
Now, I know that people are going to make assumptions about their gayness or straightness regardless of what movie or tv series we're talking about. But you know the difference? WATSON! That is the difference. I look at Martin Freeman and under no circumstances could I imagine that John and Sherlock could be gay. It's bloody impossible, end of story.
Then there's Jude Law. His Watson is written almost as if he were a pansy. Well, that might be a bit extreme but, I ask you, who did teach his Watson to dance? Makes you wonder and I'd rather not have to worry about wondering, period.
So, there we go. My most recent Holmesesque thoughts. A Scandal in Belgravia is still ICK and so far off canon it hit Pluto on its journey out of the Milky Way but I'd still pick Sherlock as my #1 choice of recent Holmes film/tv adaptations. Hands down awesomeness.
