Thanks for Everything!

My big adventures from the past year are in the slideshow: our wedding, our honeymoon in London and Edinburgh, our trip to Taipei, and my trip to Paris.   When I started this blog in 2014, I was working on my first book.

What I’ve Been Reading This Week

I subscribe to lots of things--probably too many--and as such whenever I go on vacation (or don't feel like reading things), I develop a huge backlog of reading. While I was cleaning this week, I'd take I-can't-stand-it-one-more-minute breaks that I told myself were productive because I was clearing out the back log of feminist newsletters, … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading This Week

It's an interesting concept, especially when you think about how many books are made into movies and how many stories seem perfect for this kind of adaptation. I've only read one book on the author's list,¬†One Hundred Years … Continue reading Books that Would Make Awful Films

Page to Screen: Me Before You

Film Adaptation--love it or hate it, it's an undeniable part of our culture. For my part, I love it. Even when it's done poorly (and goodness knows it is), it still has the power to get people talking critically about art and adaptation.
