Mysterious Skin- reviewed

I remember seeing the film adaptation of Scott Heim’s Mysterious Skin a few years after it’s release. It wasn’t that bad though I didn’t really know what to make of it, besides the fact that both lead characters were seriously fucked up- in their own special way- . It was only later that I realized the film was adapted from a book and while perusing a bookstore that was closing its doors I came across and immediately picked it up. While my last review of Boy Meets Boy tackled young love for teenagers both gay and straight, this novel is a complete 180, dealing with much darker and more depressing themes.

Boy Meets Boy- Reviewed

I haven’t read as much LBGT literature as I would have liked, but I’ve recently been trying to mend that- the last three books I read fall into this category.  I’ve known about David Levithan for a while, but it wasn’t until someone recommended Boy Meets Boy, that I finally picked up one of his books

Dream a little Dream... a review of Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

Sorry It's been a while. I was out of the country for a wedding and it took a while to get back in the habit of things. But i digress.

I was probably one of the people who immediately fan-girled when news came out of a sequel to The Shining. I was late to the shining reading game, having read it just a little over 2 years ago. However, that meant the story was still fresh in my mind. My brother-in-law got me Doctor Sleep and I couldn’t be happier, over the next week every chance I got I caught up with Danny- not so little anymore though sometimes just as na├»ve- Torrance. Summary and review after the jump (spoilers if you have yet to read The Shining)
