Five Classics I am {almost literally} Dying to Read

 I (still) cannot read, so with the logical goal of torturing myself, I’m just going to write about all the classic lit I WANT to read but sadly CAN NOT. (Long story short: I got a concussion. Details here). Also, I am aware that the P&P Book Thieves are technically on hiatus, but screw that….

Hermione & Clara Are Sadly Dead: An Obituary

HELLO FRIENDS. Some very exciting & important pieces of news that you all MUST KNOW: I (HERMIONE) HAVE FINISHED MY NOVEL. I am not going to say anything else at this point, because I want to keep this blog and my Hermione pseudonym separate from my eventual Author Name that will be printed on all…

You’re Not Alone/Neither Are You {A Mini Reylo Fic}

{By Hermione Montrose} Occasionally I write fanfics. The one below is actually more of a rewrite, because while The Last Jedi novelization was quite pro-Reylo, parts were rather passionless. The hand touch scene, for instance, was written in probably the briefest way possible, and it was utterly devoid of any sort of romantic or sexual…

OTP Mixtape: Heathcliff x Cathy

As Yoda once said: “Ship or Do Not Ship. There is No Try.” Because let’s face it, when you ship something, you SHIP SOMETHING. Some ships can get borderline obsessive, but it’s all perfectly healthy (right? RIGHT??). After all, we’re TEENAGERS (or teenagers at heart, anyway). We’re supposed to be obsessive and fangirl-ish and so invested in…

To All the (YA) Books I’ve Loved Before {ft. a rant and two small reviews}

I don’t read a lot of YA—I never have, really, simply because it doesn’t interest me. My recent foray into the genre has only served to redouble my aversion to “fluffy” romances and “meet-cutes.” (Because these things are never cute. They’re just annoying.) My YA expertise is pretty much limited to the eleven YA books…

A Study in Villains

There’s nothing like a good villain, eh? After all, the quality of a villain can make or break a story. Some villains are utterly forgettable, while others are more famous than their corresponding heroes. Just look at the MCU. Everyone knows who Loki is—but if someone were to bring up the Marvel Villain “Ivan,” would…

The Secret Behind Balancing The Force {Star Wars Theory}

It’s only four days until The Last Jedi is released in theaters, and Hermione and I have been caught in a wave of pre-Last Jedi frenzy. Aside from doing very productive things like watching 40 minute Reylo theory videos, we’ve been re-watching the trilogies and forming some interesting theories about the Jedi, the Sith, and…
