“Breaking Dawn” is the most frightening film I’ve seen this year by Avril Good

November 28, 2011


I have a confession to make. I have read the Twilight series.

No, my confession is that I read the Twilight series, and […]

Two of a Kind: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2″—What’s life going to be like A.H. (After Harry)? by Mattie Mould
