The End of Lit Flicks

The Lit Flicks Challenge is officially over (both mine, and my sister’s companionship challenge at thebluestockings.com).  It was a pretty fun challenge for me, and a long one.  I can’t believe it started six months ago.  I’m proud to say that I finished my own challenge, while falling one book short for my sister’s.  Here are my entries: Book review:... Read More

Twice the Lit Flicks

I was a complete bastard during the first of January and didn’t put up a Lit Flicks Challenge winner. I have a list of excuses (mono, back pain, starting up school again, laziness), but I won’t list any of them here. The point is, I apologize. And so, I have two winners for this post. Thanks again for all who participated, there’s one month left, so get all your... Read More

Change in Challenge Plans…

So my sister at TheBluestockings.com is hosting a Literature and Film blog-fest. Her rules can be found here.  I wrote about it yesterday…  Her challenge asks you to read 5 books, then see the film adaptations of two of them. Once you’ve reviewed the films and books, you place a link to your posts on her page. Instead of co-hosting, I’m hosting a companion challenge.... Read More
