The Casual Vacancy is not Harry Potter. This obvious fact needs to be stated because, I’m willing to bet, 90% of The Casual Vacancy’s readers have picked it up because of the author’s name. I certainly was one of them – driven by a certain curiosity to see what else J.K. Rowling can do. Of… Continue reading Book Review – The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
Finally, the ickiest episode of The Bachelor. The one where they travel to a foreign country and show their ignorance of that country's customs. Oh, wait, no, I mean the episode with the "fantasy suites" where Chris Harrison sets up a weird situation.
