As you can see from the above picture, the book I read was The Princess Bride by William Goldman! Let me explain. You guys are all WELL aware (I’ve only said it like a million times),that I am doing the Book Riot #ReadHarder challenge and one of the challenges is to read a romance novel, and I am not that girl. Maybe, due to my age, all I have been brainwashed about romance novels is the Nora Roberts books at the supermarket checkout. You know, the ones with the toned, tanned, bare chested gentleman, standing behind a forlorn, scantily clad maiden, with some sort of mountainous scenery in the background. Again, I could be completely dated, but that’s all I know and I just have no interest in them. Let me know if there are some legit updated ones to read!  Any who, I decided to pick my favorite romantic movie and work my way from there, and BAM! I decided to read The Princess Bride.

Before I begin this review, I would like to say that I am 1,000% bias towards Aisha Tyler. I ADORE her! I have even stated on my home page that I feel like she is my Super Sayan or for those of you who didn’t watch” Dragon Ball Z”, she the Raichu to my Pickachu, an evolution of sorts.  (I mean, look at that picture, she seems so nice, just a cool chick on a rooftop, laughing, drinking a beer. Who wouldn’t want her as a friend?) I fell in love with her stand up years ago and the more popular she gets and the more interviews, podcast, books,etc that she does, the more I really feel like she gets me. I know this seems like the making of a stalker, but I don’t have the skill to hone a craft such as stalking. There is too much time and hacking invested in stalking that I don’t care for.

For those of you who are like, “Who the hell is Aisha Tyler?” Well, I’ll give you a brief biography. Aisha Tyler grew up in the bay area of California, she is a hilarious comedian with a few stand up specials. She has 2 books out (one of which I will review) and does lots of work on TV. She is the voice of Lana ARCHER: "Lana Kane" as voiced by Aisha TylerKane for spy the cartoon “Archer”, as well as being a co host of the talk show “The Talk” and she is the new host of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and was the host of “Talk Soup”. Along with her television jobs, she also hosts a girl on guy podcastweekly podcast named “Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler” where she talks to celebrities about assorted shenanigans. Most people may recognize her from her role as Charlie on the TV show “Friends”(which the WHOLE world is streaming right now) as she 2015-02-04 14.18.02was Joey, then Ross’ girlfriend. She fearless, brazen, inappropriate, hilarious, intense gamer, confessed nerd and an all around awesome badass chick, who based on her principle alone, I would like to emulate one day when I figure out how to get my sh*t together.

Bonnets, Blades and Badass Bennett Sisters

Hello there! So this week, it has been crazy for me with the move of my blog to this schnazzy site and me power reading through books and with school starting, I have been a busy woman. Luckily, I have a few minutes before I need to start my dreaded homework to let you know about the book I finished. I just finished Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame- Smith and Jane Austen as part of my Read Harder Challenge (read a retelling of a classic story) and it was awesome (yeah, I know I’m slow on the uptake)!
