Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

As part of the 26 book reading challenge I’ve been participating in for about a year now (I’m such a slow reader these days), I chose to read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte for the category “a book that’s over 10 years old.” A quick summary of the novel: Jane Eyre is an orphan growingContinue reading “Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte”

I Hear You’re Asking All Around

Catching up on my 52 week writing challenge. This story inspired by the prompt “a tragedy that ends in romance.” Enjoy! WARNING: Profanity ahead! Proceed with caution. It’s one of those dumb moments we have as kids. Well, not kids, but not adults yet either. Almost though. Old enough to know better, but still youngContinue reading “I Hear You’re Asking All Around”

Stepped Out of the Line

Here’s another piece for the 52 week writing challenge I’ve been working on. This prompt was “a romance that ends in tragedy.” I was (unfortunately) inspired by current events and other pieces of fiction that all too well mirror our reality. Summer break was always my favorite. I’d get to come home from college and spendContinue reading “Stepped Out of the Line”

Hitchin’ A Ride

I’ve been doing this 52 week writing challenge all year long, and I fell behind for a bit, so here’s my short piece of fiction for the category “a story with only one character.” Enjoy! I don’t know how long I’ve been out here. The sun’s brutal and beating down on my bare back. HadContinue reading “Hitchin’ A Ride”

One Book At A Time

I am drowning in a sea of things to read. My double-stacked book shelves taunt me with their tomes. My Goodreads TBR list laughs at my folly. My kindle glares at me as I time and time again pass it over for a physical text. When did it get so hard to read? As aContinue reading “One Book At A Time”

The Mistreatment of Black Canary on CW’s Arrow

The return of Arrow last week stirred in me feelings from the previous season and opened old wounds (#foreversalt), so I thought I’d share an old post I wrote for my personal blog here. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN’T CAUGHT UP ON THE SHOW Also, profanity up ahead. Proceed with caution. I stayed up lateContinue reading “The Mistreatment of Black Canary on CW’s Arrow”

War, What Is It Good For?

I recently took on a reading challenge this past year, and in that time, I’ve read Anthony Swofford’s Jarhead, and now I’m currently in the middle of reading James Bradley’s Flags of Our Fathers.  The categories I chose these books for are “a book based on a true story” and “a book with a blueContinue reading “War, What Is It Good For?”
