6 Books That Were So Much Better Than the Movie It's Ridiculous

By ElodieSeptember 6, 2018
I try not to be that guy who gets upset when the movie is different from the book. Everyone hates that guy, particularly people who didn’t read the book and just want to enjoy the movie. But sometimes the adaptation is so god-awful that it turns us ALL into that guy, wh More  →

Every Literary Movement in History, Summed Up in a Single Sentence

By ElodieSeptember 5, 2018
The problem with literature is that there’s so much of it. Books go back a long time (like at least ten or fifteen years, I’m thinking), and if you’re a student taking an English class, you’re supposed to be familiar with basically all of them. But that’s imposs More  →

By ElodieAugust 31, 2018
We ask a lot of questions on this website. Where did Percy get Scabbers? What does a boggart look like? How do the owls know where to go? Sometimes we even have questions that have nothing to do with Harry Potter, but today is not one of those days. Today we will be asking More  →

If the Greek Gods Had Tinder

By ElodieAugust 30, 2018
Dating has really come a long way. Nowadays we can just scroll through viable romantic partners while we’re waiting in line at Target with an armful of Hostess snacks and Diet Coke, but things weren’t always so easy.  In the 1950s, you had to sexily make eye contact wi More  →
