Kim Carnes is a name that you bring up, and everybody nods in approval or recognition. Her reputation has been built up after her success from “Bette Davis Eyes”. There is no denying the boost the song gave to her brand name, after winning the Grammys for Record of the year and Song of the Year. Kim is also known for her rock, country experience and blue eye soul background. She has a distinct raspy voice and throughout this compiled album, it is heard well. Bette Davis Eyes is perhaps the best song on Gypsy Honeymoon. Written by Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon, and receiving praise from the Bette Davis herself, this already gave a good impression to listeners. When listening to it, we are introduced to the famous tune and it carried an odd feeling that makes you want to move around and dance. Continue reading

Summary: Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind? Continue reading
