   I was waiting to write this review for a while because I had only seen it in 3D. I was utterly amazed because it was the first 3D movie I had ever seen. I wanted to go straight home and …
The Lord of the Rings (BBC Dramatization)
I was really excited when I discovered this BBC audio dramatization of Tolkien's classic Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was highly recommended by a staff member at the Ventura County Library in Ventura, …

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (Two-Disc
   Let me begin this review by saying I'm biased. Yes, you read correctly--biased, I say! I absolutely adore anything written, directed, and drawn by Hayao Miyazaki. Thus, it is very …
reviewed Nothing Personal. July 09, 2011
Nothing Personal
I didn't expect much from a book that cost me $0.99 at Borders; it was on the clearance rack. I was correct in my skepticism. Nothing Personal contained a rather tepid romance with multiple …
reviewed Stone Fox. June 22, 2011
Stone Fox
This is a surprising, quick read written for children, grades 3-6. I would classify it as a chapter book because it has chapters (ten of them), simple, easy to read language, and an elementary plot that …

I've been very fortunate to have my Barnes and Noble Nook to use for my classes at UCSB. More than half of my required titles were available as ebooks at a drastically discounted rate. Not only that, …

Top Hat
This was the first Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical that I saw. It's one that I will never forget, and I highly recommend it to all viewers, even if you are not a musicals fan. I loved this …
posted a Quick Tip about The Lovely Bones (book). June 18, 2011
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
This is a book that I've been wanting to re-read for a long time. From what I recall, it was haunting, moving, and engaging. I read it quickly, and to some degree, I regret that fact because there …

This was the most difficult book I read in high school. I read Speak, Memory when I was in Mrs. Kerns' Honors English 11 (a junior in high school).      Initially, I remember hating …

Survivor
As of April 12, 2011, I have only watched one season of Survivor (and not even the complete season as I still have two episodes on my DVR). I watched the twentieth season "Heroes and Villains," …

I didn't know Alton Brown before I got married. In fact, I didn't watch the Food Network until marriage. It was during one of these rare viewing occasions that I realized my husband …

The Real Reason Why Guys Should Hate TWILIGHT
This video accurately states some of my disappointments with the series as far as I have read. It also presents a valid argument as to why men should not like the Twilight books rather than some of the …

Hello, Adrianna! How is everything?
March 09, 2012
Hi William. Life's ok. Hectic and busy. How about you? We should talk sometime! Sounds like there have been some changes!
 
January 20, 2012
Hey there, hon- just wanted to check in to see how SB is treating you guys! Hope all is well!
March 09, 2012
SB is ok. I don't spend much time out and about except when we are eating. I am just way too busy with school! I like Ventura more. I go there with J when I have a day off from school. I spend the entire time working in a coffee shop or at the Ventura Library.
March 19, 2012
I like Downtown SB much better than IV or Goleta. Ventura's SUPER cute- I remember there being a ton of vintage shops there. Have you guys checked out Paradise Cafe? It's a nice romantic spot...
March 19, 2012
I like Dowtown SB, but it can get really congested with traffic. Goleta is a little easier to drive around in, minus IV which is a mess of bikers! Ventura is my fave among them all, though. We haven't checked out Paradise Cafe. Where is that located at?
April 08, 2012
I hear ya...and IV...I STILL call that place HIV LOL Paradise Cafe's on the corner of Ortega and Anacapa. Here's a link for you: http://www.paradisecafe.com/ OR affordable Italian at Pascucci's...there's so much great food places there. Ventura is fun, I have to go back now that it's been over a decade.

You are missed around here, lady! Hope your move is going well :)
September 30, 2011
Aw, thanks, Debbie! I miss everyone here so much! Right now, I'm trying to finish unpacking the last 20+ boxes and get settled into the quarter system. It's really throwing me for a loop. I have plenty of review ideas. I just need to make the time to write once I get my homework done.

Thanks! Off to read it now. :)
August 01, 2011
Still haven't gone there yet, lol. Let me know if you do, James!
August 01, 2011
Cools!
August 10, 2011
Aw, that's too bad! I'll be reading your reviews of both Tupelo and Red Viking soon. For now, I'm off to volunteer at the library! :)
 
July 08, 2011
Thank you Adrianna, but I'm not much of a reader and wouldn't offer much. Thank you anyway.
July 08, 2011
No problem. You're welcome to join at any time no matter how much or how little you contribute. It's just fun having people around to dialog, read, and discuss topics and issues that arise in the community. :)
