K-Drama Review : Melting Me Softly

K-Drama Review : Melting Me Softly

So as you’ve probably guessed from the lack of K-Drama reviews lately, that I’ve been in a serious K-drama watching and reviewing slump. When I heard Ji Chang Wook–one of my all time favorite Korean actors from some of my favorite dramas like Empress Ki, the K2, and Healer— was back from his mandatory military service and starring in a new drama, I figured it would be the perfect watch […]

Book Review : Brisingr

Book Review : Brisingr

I had almost given up on The Inheritance Cycle, after barely making it through Eldest.Imagine my surprise when I actually not only enjoyed Brisingr, but was also even brought to tears during it.

While I loved the series for being action packed, full of fantasy elements, interesting lore, and pure fun, I think that How to Tame […]

Book Review : The Romanov Empress

Book Review : The Romanov Empress

Out of the two Romanov books I read this year—the other being I Was Anastasia—The Romanov Empress was my personal favorite. I never gave any thought to the mother of Tsar Nicholas II, Tsarina Maria Feodorovna, also known as Minnie. This book was clearly extremely well researched and I learned so much from it, despite it being historical fiction. I enjoyed this atypical princess story, but got a little frustrated […]
