BDSM in Fifty Shades of Grey


I was channel surfing and came across the edited version of Fifty Shades of Grey starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, and to my shock, I learned the movie is already five years old. Wow. Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday the film was playing at my town's one-screen theater, and it caused a bit of commotion. Why? Well, the theater usually plays only PG or PG-13 films, so a Rated-R flick was a big deal for a small midwestern town.

How to Choose Custom Window Screens for Your Home


When shopping for new window screens for your home, it’s not a one-size-fits-all scenario. In fact, it’s common to have different types of screens for each room of your home. Your living room, for instance, is considered a high-traffic area when pets, children, and house guests are factored in. The screen you need for this room differs for your bedroom or home office. So, how do you know which type is suitable for each room? We’ll run down five of the most important areas of any home with important factors to take into consideration. No matter which window screens you choose, they’ll need to be customed ordered to fit the specific dimensions of your window openings.

Review - From Dill to Dracula by A.M. Ruggirello

AMAZON * BARNES & NOBLE

Add to Goodreads

 

Romania—a hidden gem of Eastern Europe—is better known for its brush with communism than its cuisine. But, just because it’s hidden, doesn’t mean it’s forgotten. Filled with lush ingredients, many picked fresh from the field, you’ll find a traditional Romanian plate loaded to the brim with vegetables and lean proteins, never lacking in flavor.

Sunday Post - Books of Blood, The Noel Letters, and The Talisman


Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

Good Morning, Everyone!

I don't know if anyone noticed, but I didn't write a Sunday Post for the last two weeks. I was sick on and off in October. And, it wasn't COVID-19 for those of you who might be wondering. It seems that getting a flu shot didn't prevent me from getting ill. Add in the wacky weather where one day it is 90 degrees, and the next day there is snow on the ground; I was feeling like crap for nearly two weeks. I had planned on having a 13 Days of Horror reading event in October, but due to the illness, I only had the strength and time to read two books, The Other Side by Diana Henstell and The Black Ambrosia by Elizabeth Engstrom.

Usually, I am in a better mood near Halloween because it's my favorite holiday. However, thanks to COVID-19, there was no Halloween yesterday, besides for the Halloween movie marathon on AMC. For the first time since I could remember, I didn't carve a pumpkin and roast pumpkins seeds. Though, I did buy three 2oz bags of DAVID Pumpkins Seeds (Roasted & Salted). And I didn't give out candy to the trick-or-treaters. (FYI: Yes, a few kids were walking down the street last night, even though my town outlawed Halloween for 2020.)



What Am I Reading?


I finished reading Let Him Go by Larry Willson yesterday afternoon. I received notification from OverDrive that Malorie by Josh Malerman was available to check out, so I went ahead and downloaded the eBook. It's a sequel to Bird Box, which I haven't read yet. I did have it reserved along with Malorie, but I ended up buying it on Kindle when it was on sale. It'll be my next read, followed by Malorie and Weeks: Book 2 by Jasyn T. Turley.

Also, I'll be reading the cookbook From Dill To Dracula sometime today for a book tour that I'll post on Tuesday.
