Always

Sadly, on January 14, 2016 we lost one of our beloved actors, Alan Rickman. Rickman is known for roles such as Professor Snape in Harry Potter, Sheriff George of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Theives, and Hans Gruber in Die Hard, along with so many others.

People from all generations felt this loss and many people showed their love for him in many ways. Lilies were left at the Harry Potter Universal Studios, wands were raised, and the internet was flooded with quotes from his many characters. One thing that I loved was that Fandom of the Month was doing a tribute box for him. You didn't have to be a part of the usual monthly subscription, anyone could order it, and a portion of the proceeds went to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. I knew that I had to get this.

They warned me (and everyone who purchased one) that it would be a while before we received our boxes in the mail, but I was okay with it. This week, I finally received my box in the mail! I was so excited for it. I had waited almost 2 months for it! It was so worth the wait.

Window Sticker
I think the window sticker for my car is the most favorite thing. Although I frequently wear shirts that show my love for Harry Potter, or quote the books and movies, now, everywhere I drive, people will know that I am a Die Hard Potterhead (see what I did there). I am so glad that I got this box.

Alan Rickman February 21, 1946-January 14, 2016
Alan Rickman, you have brought these wonderful characters to life. You will always be loved by so many people, and you will be greatly missed.


After all this time? Always.

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

I was really excited for this book. I have the day-by-day calendar and I love it. It's posts are quick and witty and there's a bonus on the back of every day that tells you something interesting, or is a little puzzle, or something to get you thinking. It's great. The book version was...a let down, for a few reasons.


How Not To
So yeah, I get how repetition is good in a self help book, but this was a bit too much. If I never hear any of these phrases again, it'll be too soon: subconscious mind, conscious mind, love yourself, change your thinking, become aware. Almost every chapter contains a list of what you're supposed to do to realize that you are a badass, and every list contains all of those in some form or another. By about chapter 6, I got it.There are a lot of "I" statements, and not the kind that instruct you to change how you structure your thoughts (those are there, too, just not as much). You Are a Badass is an autobiography of Jen Sincero's

Black Obsidian by Victoria Quinn

When I first started this review, I wasn't really sure what I was going to write, but then as I started thinking about it, I really did not like the book. This is why:

It's your typical toned down erotica novel; it's a carbon copy of Fifty Shades, just with different names. I feel like it started out strong, but once Calloway starts falling for this girl who "won't understand his lifestyle," it went downhill fast.I am so sick of rich men using their means to track down this one girl. It's creepy. If some man did that to me, I'd be filing a restraining order, not crawling into bed with him.I am also sick of the man trying to control every aspect of the woman's life before they have signed a contract. Calloway, you are Rome's boyfriend, not her Dom; you can't buy her a house because her apartment was broken into. Again, restraining order, not bed. And even when there's a contract between a Dom and a sub, there are soft and hard limits, a…

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry

Good as Gone is a Book of the Month Club book that has been sitting on my shelf for a little, like most of my books do before being read. However, I am glad that I waited to read it, as right now I'm in one of my mystery/suspense moods.
Eight years ago, in the middle of the night. Jane watcher her older sister Julie be kidnapped from her room at knife point. That was the last to be seen of Julie. Now, it is present day. Jane is in college, and her parents have formed a life around the void of their missing daughter. Of course it is not the same, how could it be; but it is a life nonetheless. Then, one evening as they are sitting down for dinner, the doorbell rings, and who should be at the door other than...drum roll...Julie! She passes out upon her mother opening the door and they rush her to the hospital. When Julie sits down with detectives, she tells a harrowing story of being sold to drug lords and sex traffickers and the years of abuse she faced at the hands of her captor; h…
