We all have those moments while we’re watching one of our favorite TV shows and one of the characters appears in an amazing pair of shoes or an adorable top and you think how awesome it would be to have what they’re wearing. Maybe you even do a Google search to try to find out […]
Things I Can’t Forget is the third book in Miranda Kenneally’s Hundred Oaks series. Despite being part of a series, all of the Hundred Oaks books can stand alone – you don’t need to have read a previous book to appreciate or understand a later book. There are some crossover characters since all the books […]
Welcome back to The Daily Quirk’s Summer Movie Preview! In this installment, we take a look at a couple of big-budget action blockbusters, some star-studded comedies, and an unusual thriller with magic on its side.
The Madness Underneath is the second book in Maureen Johnson’s Shades of London trilogy. There may be spoilers for the first book, The Name of the Star, in this review. After reading The Name of the Star, I thought I had an idea of what might happen in the next book in the series. Sure, […]
No matter what trends are popular in music at a given time, one thing is usually constant: the boy band. Of course what constitutes a boy band is debatable, and boy bands evolve to meet the needs of their audience at a given time. But because there are always 13-year-old girls, there is always a […]
Good news for fans of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars! The network recently announced a new PLL spin-off series, Ravenswood, which will debut in October. The show will share a production team with Pretty Little Liars, and while it’s being labeled a spin-off, it sounds like Rosewood will be more of a companion show, featuring […]
To preface, it is important to note that I have a tendency to avoid YA paranormal like the plague. This is mostly due to the fact that, in my experience, most of these books tend to be very melodramatic with unbelievable doomed romances. I’m not interested in reading about a human girl in love with […]

How many of you have chosen to give up cable in favor of a Netflix subscription? There are plenty of people who maintain both cable and Netflix subscriptions, but there’s an increasing trend toward customers eschewing traditional cable or satellite in favor of a reasonably priced (less than $10/month) subscription to Netflix’s streaming services. Given […]
After self-publishing her first book, The Siren, in 2009, Kiera Cass found widespread success with the release of her second novel, The Selection. The first in a trilogy, The Selection tells the story of a teenage girl plucked from society’s low castes to compete for the affection of her country’s young prince. The second book […]
Every once in a while I read a book that takes me by surprise, either by surpassing my expectations or by leaving me a little confused – in a good way. Kiera Cass’s 2012 novel, The Selection, was one of those strange books that didn’t necessarily tick all the boxes for things I especially enjoy […]
When it initially was released, The Selection was touted as “The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor.” That’s not quite it. It’s sort of a dystopian-meets-fairy-tale with a bit of a reality TV element thrown in. I can see how you might get the comparison, but it’s a stretch.
