Pass, Fail, Promise: Recent Reads

Sorry, that’s the best theme I can come up with this time. Pass: Brimstone by Cherie Priest I got this book at the last Steampunk Symposium, after sitting through a couple of panels with the author.

Pass, Fail, Promise: Urban Fantasy Edition

I have been doing a TON of reading. Seriously. I think I’ve finished 4-5 books since Saturday, and I’m working on three more. Right now I’m on a huge Urban Fantasy kick.

Pass, Fail, Promise: Classic Lit

Pass: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I think that I must be one of only about five people in the US who didn’t have this book for required reading–ever–in all the time I was at school. It’s kind of a shame, really, because I like the little I have read of Mark… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: Classic Lit

Pass, Fail, Promise: Period Drama

While I’ve mostly been avoiding television because of Nano, I did take a break to watch a few things on Netflix this week. Shockingly, all were period dramas from different countries. Pass: Populaire Country of Origin: France Rating: A- Okay, so we’re talking about a French movie set in 1959 that centers around typewriters? Yep,… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: Period Drama
