by Keri Horan

Every year, my mother and I take part in Black Friday shopping. Normally we’d hit up a mall or department store first, trying to get as many doorbuster deals as possible. Last year, though, all our go-to stops were put on hold so I could raid Barnes & Noble. Definitely not your typical Black Friday stop, but over […]

I’m going to be completely honest with you guys: I had zero expectations for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. I’m not really sure why–maybe it was the general feeling of disappointment in Cursed Child, maybe it was that I didn’t really love the textbook edition Rowling released in 2008, or maybe it’s just […]
