So. much. WIN.
Also, I'm in love with Spock.
That is all.

  1. Spock was my first (and probably longest-running) fictional character crush. So the new movie made me happy.

    I think this is the first time recently that I haven't felt let down by a remake.

  2. deety, that makes me so happy. I have always loved Spock. And I completely agree. It was unbelievably refreshing (and so rare lately) to have my expectations exceeded. I wanna see it again!

  7. You should definitely go see it again!

  8. Amy, it's all about the Spock.

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…
