Fictional Bucket List

Ashley did this over on her blog yesterday and I thought it was an awesome idea. And, if you know me, I'm always looking for good post ideas that I can steal. Actually, I asked permission to do the same thing on my blog, which she so graciously gave. So thanks, Ashley! So the idea … Continue reading Fictional Bucket List

The Eyes of the Dragon

The Eyes of the Dragon Stephen King 1987 Slowly making my way through Stephen King's bibliography, I've come to The Eyes of the Dragon. In reality, I should have read it some time ago since I'm trying to accomplish this feat by reading novels in the order in which they were originally published. When I … Continue reading The Eyes of the Dragon

Can You Teach Me to Read?

No, not literally... I know how to read. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to write if I couldn't read... right? But maybe I never actually learned how to read. Maybe I just memorized what a bunch of words look like. I do like to read. No... I think it's fair to say I … Continue reading Can You Teach Me to Read?

20 Years with Harry Potter

This morning, I was perusing the old Twitter feed and came across this tweet from J.K. Rowling... 20 years ago? How can that be? I guess it makes sense. I graduated from Hogwarts high school 20 years ago. And according to J.K.'s timeline, the Battle of Hogwarts happened in 1998. Harry Potter and I are … Continue reading 20 Years with Harry Potter

Batman: Nightwalker

Title: Batman: Nightwalker Author: Marie Lu Published: 2018 I'm a comic geek at heart. Specifically, I'm a DC Comics geek. So whenever there's something new and interesting about DC's iconic characters, in any medium, I'm all over it. I actually didn't know this book existed until I came across it at the library recently. I … Continue reading Batman: Nightwalker

The End of Oz

I realize I never wrote my thoughts regarding any of the previous books in the Dorothy Must Die series of novels. With The End of Oz being the fourth and (presumably) final book in the series, I think it's safe to say I enjoyed them. Please, do yourself a favor and read them before picking … Continue reading The End of Oz

No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

To all of my fellow Americans, happy Independence Day! If fireworks are your thing, I hope you are having a lovely evening watching all those explosions in the sky. Personally, I'm just as content sitting at home reading or watching a movie or obsessing over the Big Brother live feeds. It's not that I actively … Continue reading No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

1,001 Posts

Kids, welcome to my 1,001st blog post here on The Confusing Middle. Yesterday, after my Rewatching Buffy post was published, I got a notification from WordPress saying that I had posted exactly 1,000 on this here blog. I feel like there should be more fanfare. I'm sure you're sitting in your seat beginning a slow … Continue reading 1,001 Posts

Why I’m Over Television

I'm a TV kind of guy. I like it. Having a screen that presents me with hours of endless entertainment is kind of nice. But... lately... I don't know. I'm just... kind of... over the whole thing. Don't get me wrong, I still watch the television from time to time. In fact, last weekend I … Continue reading Why I’m Over Television
