Fangirl Favourites Friday: Drop Dead Diva


I came across this gem while surfing Netflix last summer. I think that perhaps Netflix recommended it to me? (If so, I love you Netflix). At the time there were four seasons on there, and I marathon’d them like a PRO. That’s how I roll when it comes to shows. Yes, I think I will sit here for four hours and watch episodes of this show back to back. When I finished those, I think I was a little burnt out and didn’t seek out any recent episodes on the web.

HOWEVER, recently it popped back up on Netflix with that beautiful banner: NEW EPISODES. I lost my mind and watched them all. In like, two days or something. That wasn’t enough for me. Marathonning one season is nothing. So, I took to the internet for season six :D. And I am watching it now.

Moonlight On Butternut Lake
Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Romance
Paperback, 384 pages
Published May 12th, 2015 by William Morrow Paperbacks 

Moonlight on Butternut Lake is the third book in the Butternut companion trilogy. This book focuses on out-of-towner Mila Jones as she comes to work in Butternut as a home health care aide. Mila brings with her lots of baggage—not literally, she only has one small suitcase. However, any noise makes her start, she's always looking over her shoulder, and she always has to be able to see the exit. A lot of people don’t notice this, how she’s always alert and subtly shrinks into herself. But Reid Ford, her cantankerous new patient, notices something is off about her. 

Mila has come to Butternut to get away and start over. This secluded Minnesota small town seems like the perfect place to do it. However, Mila is uncertain of her new job. She accepted it out of desperation, and is now regretting it a little bit. She was warned that this patient would be… troublesome, but she hadn’t expected his attitude to be quite so bad! All he does is mope around in his room all day—and everyone just lets him! She's not going to be a push over. But she doesn’t exactly want to rock the boat either… 

Faced with someone—and a beautiful girl no less—who will finally tell it like it is, Reid slowly begins to come out of his self-imposed solitude. If Mila can break through Reid’s shell, can he break through hers?

Fangirl Favourites Friday: I'm In Love With Mindy Kaling (An Ode to the Mindy Project)

Fuelled by fiction fueled by fiction fangirl favourites mindy kaling the mindy project

Okay, so, I’m feeling a little sour today. Fox has announced that they are cancelling The Mindy Project, and I am heartbroken. Watching Mindy Lahiri and her ridiculous escapades has provided me with endless amounts of joy and entertainment. FOX, WE’RE NOT FRIENDS ANYMORE.

Okay, I get that this last season of The Mindy Project may not have been like A+ material, but it was still super enjoyable and I want to know what happens next! I hope that some streaming media site picks its up became it’s an absolute gem. (Edit: It was picked up by Hulu! YAYAY)

ON TO THE FANGIRLING.


Why I read YA and What Led Me Here

YA young adult fuelled by fiction fueled by fiction

My name is Beth, I am an adult (sort of) that reads YA. 

For as long as I can remember, my nose has always been in a book. I remember when I was a kid I was obsessed with Franklin and wanted to read every single one of the books about him. Then I graduated to chapter books and so on and so forth. When I was a middle grader, I loved fantasy. I was all about the fantasy. I loved Harry Potter, anything by Cornelia Funke, the Serpent’s Egg series, etc. Loved it. As I became a teenager, I “outgrew” dragons and magic, and had to read more things more "grown up." This translated to stuff like any and all things by Sarah Dessen, The Book Thief, and the Twilight series.
