Mind Over Matter- Short Story
Fantasy , My Fiction / July 18, 2017

Kat sat in her trusty, cushioned chair with her purple lap desk perched on her bent knees. On it, there was a smattering of notebook paper and scribbled sentences. Tears came to her eyes as she started pushing out the next few paragraphs. Her character was suffering and she felt for him. Ached for him. When she tried to write his most painful scenes, he kept wrenching back, unable to face any more pain. She didn’t blame him. This draft was sure to leave her with a headache. Just then, her eyes began to droop against her will, as if she had drunk a whole bottle of Nyquil. Her body was being pulled in and she could not fight it. No. No. Not again. But it was too late. Her eyes locked closed and then sprang open. The world shifted. Kat stood on a curb next to a tall, gray lamp post, her dirty blonde hair nearly lifting her up with the whipping wind. Next to her was an out-of-business grocery store with a faded, red logo painted on it. The slew of buildings beyond that resembled empty garages. She glanced down and was relieved to see that her entire…

Grimm Love by Kristen Collins–Book Review

Hello Kittens! Today, I am reviewing a book called Grimm Love by Kristen Collins. For a quick sum up, this is about a girl called Sky who is half human and half Grim Reaper. While simultaneously living a normal life and, you know, harvesting souls on the side, she meets a guy called Jack who falls for her and sends her world into a tailspin. Okay, so, I’m pretty sure you can tell that this is definitely paranormal romance. That is not, I’ll admit, always my most favorite genre to read. I do enjoy it, but it can easily be ruined, so it depends a lot on how the author handles it. That being said, I surprisingly really enjoyed this book. I don’t mean to say “surprisingly” as if I thought I would hate it. I didn’t. I just tend to have a little apprehension for this particular genre sometimes. However, this book was quite lovely. First, I must give it credit for putting a new and fresh spin on the paranormal romance genre. Our main girl is not a vampire, werewolf, or even a witch. She is a Grim Reaper. What?! Yes. This isn’t the first book I have…

The Mummy 2017: Movie Review
Movies / July 4, 2017

In the Words of Rick O’Connell…”Not These Guys Again!”   The Mummy, starring the always feisty Tom Cruise, was released around the same time as the box-office-smash Wonder Woman. Still, and despite some less than stellar reviews, it managed to do pretty well financially, raking in over 300 million buckaroos. So, did it deserve all that dough? Last week, Josh (the hubby) and I decided to go out to eat as a special treat/date night on the weekend. He asked me if there were any good movies playing that we could catch. I mentally ran through the list of movies that were out and, as we had already seen Wonder Woman, I said there was nothing else to see right now. Later, though, I pulled up the current movie listings on my phone, just in case I had forgotten one. “Oi!” I squealed to him. “There is one we could go see. The Mummy!” He nodded his affirmation, and our journey began shortly after. Now, before we fall even further down this tomb (hehe), I have a confession: I sometimes like bad movies. Sometimes, I’m perfectly fine with telling the critics exactly where they can shove it and enjoying myself anyway. 15%…
