  • “The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy” Wants You to Find Your Grail!

    First off, apologies for the Monty Python joke. I couldn’t resist. Second, and more importantly, it’s extremely necessary to have works sent out into the world where “fangirl” is not considered a dirty word, and in that respect, The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs is excellent. It’s an upbeat, […]

  • Live for More… And Read the Red Rising Trilogy

    Once upon a time I acquired an advance reading copy of a book called Red Rising by Pierce Brown. As is the case with most of the ARCs I get, I had no idea what the book was about. There is no summary on the back of the book. I get a lot of ARCs. I […]


  • The 100 2×16 Review: Blood Must Have Blood, Part 2

    *stares at blinking cursor for 67 years* I don’t even know how to begin this review. Where do I even start? So much was revealed to us. So much happened. It’s virtually impossible to put my thoughts and feelings on “Blood Must Have Blood, Part 2” into words. I suppose the word of the day […]

    In honor of International Women’s Day, I thought it would be fun to look back on all of the female-led films and pick out my top five ensembles.
