Min Jin Lee

After two days of skipping out on my devotion to Women’s History Month, I’ve decided to return with an entry about the deeply moving novel I just finished and its’ brilliant author. Pachinko was my February Book of the Month Club selection, and I’m patting myself on the back for picking this baby out! There are very few books I’ve been as grateful to receive in the mail, and I can tell you I will recommend this book to every single one of my friends.

I hope you enjoy!

“People love what other people are passionate about,” My Review of La La Land

My not-so-inner theatre nerd is always excited when a new movie musical is announced. I almost shit my pants the first time I saw the Les Miserables” trailer. I was a little skeptical about¬†“The Last Five Years” and “Into the Woods.” However I had no clue what to expect when I parked my fanny in front of the big screen to behold La La Land. With all the Oscar buzz surrounding the film, I thought perhaps it would be appropriate to share my feelings about the film.
