Breaking Dawn and We Need To Talk About Kevin (Part 1)

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Dear Readers: I have a confession to make. It is a confession that is so monstrous, so remarkably horrid, that your view of me will forever be marred. *Takes deep breath* I have never read The Lord of the Rings trilogy. [I know what you’re thinking: “and here she is, this imposter, purporting to be […]
