New Year, New Books, New Resolutions

It’s a new year and I don’t know about you but I’ve had to increase my book budget to handle all the cool releases coming out this year. Even with grad school I have a goal to read at least three books a month that are non-school related. For me, with my day job as […]

Candy Havens | Fall Season in Full Swing for Movies, Television and Books…

We’ve had a lot of books to movies/TV this fall. Have you seen The Walking Dead on AMC? In case you were wondering there are zombies on that series but that isn’t really what it’s about.

CANDANCE HAVENS | Let’s Talk Academy Awards

It’s almost time for the Academy Awards, which is a big time of year for my day job as a film critic. While I could attend as press to the awards, I prefer to stay at home and watch in my pajamas on the couch just like everyone else. If you’re press, you are usually […]
