Video of the Day: A Landslide Into Love

Glee has been one of my favorite shows since the very beginning (I still can't believe I couldn't pay attention to the pilot when it originally aired because I was writing my final paper for a Russian Politics class--I got an A), and while it has gone a bit downhill since a lot of the originals graduated at the end of season 3, it is still a pretty fun show (except when it gets serious with episodes like Shooting Star).

This scene, from Season 2's Sexy, has really stuck with me.  It was obvious to everyone at this point that Santana was in love with Brittany and that she was having problems with it.  Choosing to sing Fleetwood Mac's Landslide (okay, so it was a cover of the Dixie Chicks' version of the song, but it was originally a Fleetwood Mac song), Santana expressed how she felt to Brittany without having to say a single word.  It was very moving, and not even Santana's denial of her feelings when Rachel asked her about them later in the episode could take away from that.

Honestly, I believe that the relationship between Santana and Brittany was the healthiest on the entire series--Will and Emma have had problems from the beginning, as have Finn and Rachel, Finn and Quinn (obviously, since she slept with Puck), Puck and Quinn, Artie and Tina, Artie and Brittany, Coach Beast and Cooter (asshole), and Kurt and Blaine.  Yes, they did break up at the beginning of season 4 (most of which I missed because of Hurricane Sandy--that bitch--and am only catching up with now, which is why there aren't any season 4 relationships mentioned), but it wasn't because they didn't love each other or because one cheated on the other (a problem on Glee).

Throwback Review: The Dream Trilogy by Nora Roberts

There are some books that stick with you no matter how long it has been since you first read them.  For me, the Dream Trilogy has always been in the back of my head.  I probably read them a good 15 years ago and the last time was a good 10 years back.  As a matter of fact, that trilogy was part of the first round of books I purchased when I got my first kindle for my 24th birthday (I never actually read it after buying the digital version; I guess I just needed to know that I could read them if I wanted.

The first book of the trilogy, Daring to Dream, was released in 1996 when I was just 10 years old and more concerned with passing math (I did, but not without many a night of struggling to remember what the E in PEMDAS meant) than I was with the goings on of fictional characters inside the pages of a book.  In fact, if I read at all during that time period it was to get a free pan pizza through Pizza Hut and the Book It! program.  I've mentioned this a few times before, but I act…

Review of "Bay of Sighs" by Nora Roberts

A couple of months ago, I volunteered to read Stars of Fortune, the first book in Nora Roberts's Guardian Trilogy for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge because ParaNoras are my crack.  If they were illegal, I'd be serving a life sentence for possession/intent to sell a controlled substance.  Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of book 1, but I'd already requested Bay of Sighs, so I felt the need to read it too.  Plus, I liked the idea of a mermaid heroine -- one whose name was not Ariel.  I really wish I resisted reading this.  It was awful.  It took everything I hated about SoF and magnified it to the level that I wasn't able to finish it.

Annika is a mermaid, sent to "the shore up above" to stop an evil goddess from getting the Stars of Fortune.  Together with the five other guardians, she must search for the stars and protect them.  Afterwards, she must return to the sea, which wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for Sawyer King...

Review of "Sleepless in Manhattan" by Sarah Morgan

I bought this book with the intention of reading it on a plane from San Francisco to New York City last weekend.  Of course I read about 30% before even stepping foot onto the plane and once I was actually on it, I read maybe 5%, listening to the most recent Smart Bitches podcast and watching a few episodes of Charmed on Netflix because I had an awful night sleep the evening prior and was too tired to read.  I finally sat down to read it Sunday and Monday night.

Paige Walker has lived a sheltered life, brought low by a heart condition that had her in and out of the hospital until her late teens, but now in her late 20's she's finally healthy and happy.  She loves her life in Manhattan.  She'd felt stifled in her hometown of Puffin Island and as soon as she was able she moved to New York with her best friends, Eva and Frankie, as well as her older brother, Matt.  On the verge of a promotion at work, she figures she's got it all, but then the rug is pulled out from unde…
