Sorry, Oprah. My Book Club Is Better.

But I still love you.

So you know what I love?

Books. Reading. The whole nine.

I rarely have the time to do so, but when you read books by Lisa Jackson, you can definitely make the time. During a lunch break, on the way to's possible. Lucky for me, I have a friend that enjoys reading just as much as I do. So what did we create....?

Our very own two-person book club! And surprisingly, it works. I've been on a Lisa Jackson kick for about a year now, and that high is still going very strongly. If you haven't read anything by her, drop everything you're doing right now and go buy one of her books. It doesn't matter which one it is, just buy ANY book by her and you'll be satisfied.

I don't want to give too much away so you can be properly awed by her books, but I will say this. If you like murder-mystery stories and stories where you think you know who the killer is and are almost always 97% wrong by the end of the book, then Lisa Jackson is the author for you.

And if you're anything like my friend and me, you don't need seven or eight people to be a part of a book club. Two is a good enough number.

We both buy the books and then we switch as necessary. Now, we're currently reading a series, and the only bad thing is when one of us finishes the series and the other is still clueless and we have to try our hardest to not ruin it for the other person. It's quite the task.

So get to it.

Find yourself a friend that loves to read. Buy two books and let it expand from there. Trust me when I say it will be the best decision you've made in a while.

Sorry, Oprah. I think I just one-upped you.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
