NYX Macaron Lippies
NYX Macaron Lippies

Because I am Canadian, I often have to go to bizarre extremes to satisfy my makeup cravings. In the case of NYX Cosmetics, I’ve generally had to buy them online as they often aren’t readily available in drugstores here in Nova Scotia — the Macaron Lippies are no exception. The moment I saw the first […]

Thoughts on “Coda” & The Walking Dead Midseason Finale
The Walking Dead: Coda

(Here be spoilers. You may also wish to avoid Tumblr for a while.) The Walking Dead mid-season finale starts on a high note. Officer Bob desperately attempts to free himself from his restraints as a pair of disembodied legs run in what we can assume is his general direction. Zombies lurch in from the side, […]

The Truth About Delilah Blue by Tish Cohen
The Truth About Delilah Blue

Kobo recently had a sale on bestsellers and, while meandering the Canadian section hoping for something to pop out at me, I clicked the preview on The Truth About Delilah Blue. Something about the synopsis (likely the “aspiring-artist outsider” bit) appealed to me. It’s not necessarily the type of read I usually reach for, but […]

Mini-reviews: What I Watched
American Horror Story: Lily Rabe in Coven

Mini-reviews for what I’ve watched so far in January*. I would like to do these on a weekly basis, but I hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Reviews are spoiler-free! They’re too short to ruin lives, I promise. * To a point. I could review the first two episodes of Community season five, but it’s […]

Hemlock Grove: Questions Answered
Hemlock Grove

Several months ago, I posted my disapproving review of Netflix’s original television series, Hemlock Grove. It wasn’t so much a review as it was a means to vent after having marathoning the show with the boyfriend over the span of a few days. In a way, I also needed to wrap my brain around what […]

What Teen Ley Read

It feels like I’ve been reading predominantly young adult for years, but in actuality I didn’t “get into” teen fiction until I wasn’t one anymore*. I’m certain I’m not alone in this (similar experience anyone? Anyone? Bueller?), so I won’t pretend like I was special or precocious as a teen. I don’t know what would […]

April Reads

This was actually the Road Trip Wednesday topic for yesterday on YA Highway (best book read in April was, anyway), but I obviously failed at getting it up in time — work and real life got in the way, as always. Anyway. Here are the books I read in April. A bit late. Don’t judge. […]
