The Only Woman in the Room

When you picture getting an English Literature degree, you probably imagine being nose-deep in books all the time. I took a couple of film classes while obtaining my English Lit degree. Because of the abundance of movies I had to watch for class, I gained an appreciation for black and white films. When I saw a book about Hedy Lamarr, who not only acted in black and white films, but also had a huge impact on communication technology, I was excited.

Lean Out

Gone Wild

Resurrection

kay, so I couldn’t just stop reading the fantasy genre cold turkey. Just because Halloween is over does not mean that we have to give up the paranormal altogether. Besides, I didn’t review any vampire books last month!
