As you know, I read Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy and it wasn’t my favorite book. I liked just about all of the characters other than Willowdean, and though the writing was good, it just wasn’t for me. After reading it, I watched Dumplin’ on Netflix.
Hello again! We’re here with the books I read this past month, and my goals for next month as well! This may be a bit off because I am currently on my way to Walt Disney World (heck yes), so my final tally may not be exact to this. Below is the photo of my reading goals for February, so you can compare it to all of the books I actually read!
Ted Grayson is in everyone’s homes, every evening, and he has been for 20 years. As the anchorman of a well-watched news program, his face is known to millions. But when he verbally attacks his stand-in makeup artist, and she catches him on video, things change.
I received this graphic novel as a review copy from Quirk books, and I didn’t know much about it. I knew it was an adaptation of a Salvador Dalí screenplay, starring the Marx brothers, but I had no idea what it really was, or the work that went into it.

Last year, my boyfriend and I went on a really cool road trip. We visited Cincinnati, tried tons of tasty food, and saw a zoo we’ve been watching for quite some time now. But before we went to Cincinnati, we stayed overnight in Point Pleasant, WV, the home of the Mothman.
