Note: This review contains several spoilers.

Growing up, everyone has a dream; many little girls dream of their wedding day, where they may walk down a church isle in a white princess gown, sit in a chair wearing a bejeweled sari, or maybe even shatter a glass on a marble tile. No matter what the tradition is, there is always something to look forward to on a wedding day (as long as it’s consensual and not forced like several weddings are in some parts of the world).

Royal Wedding is the long-awaited newest installment in Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries series, and it is a dream come true for fans everywhere. Every time a good series comes out, fans want to see the story all the way through, up until the star couple gets married and has kids, or the prince and princess get a happily ever after, or even until the dystopian society…

10 Beautiful Lines From Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman

This sequel is long awaited by many, and I hope it satisfies. -PixieChick

TIME

Go Set A Watchman finally hits shelves on Tuesday, and after months of anticipation, To Kill A Mockingbird devotees are ready to get their hands on Harper Lee’s second book. Early reviews may have already swayed readers to deem the novel good or bad, but whichever way you lean, there’s no doubt Lee has written lovely prose. Ahead of its release, EW has plucked the most beautiful lines from Watchman.

1. “When she was staring at her fourth cup of coffee the Crescent Limited honked like a giant goose at its northbound mate and rumbled across the Chattahoochee into Alabama.”

2. “A black hound loped down the streets in the distance, the monkey puzzles bristled silently on there corners of the square.”

3. “Dill’s efforts to disentangle himself with dignity were only moderately successful; he rose from the pool like a small fantastical water monster, covered with green slime…

Watch Daniel Radcliffe Lose Points for Gryffindor Trying to Work as a Receptionist

I loved the Harry Potter book and film series. Radcliffe, you’re a great actor, stick to it! And the fact that Joe Jonas didn’t even recognize him..Oops!

TIME

Daniel Radcliffe just found out he doesn’t have the magic touch when it comes to office work.

The Harry Potter star, 25, recently went undercover as a receptionist for a hidden-camera prank – and soon discovered he should probably stick to his day job.

Working the front desk at Nylon magazine’s New York City office, Radcliffe managed to go incognito for a while, smiling and nodding at staffers totally oblivious to the celebrity in their midst.

But soon enough, a few employees began to notice their normal receptionist, Lauren Adler, had been replaced by the famous boy wizard – and a series of excited selfies and handshakes ensued.

After an hour of answering the phone, delivering packages and passing out the bathroom keys, the actor – who once bared all on Broadway – described the experience as “the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

One office visitor was particularly unimpressed with…

Misogyny Among Muslim Women

Hey! It’s the pixiechick here!

Thank you so much for this post. I have to disagree with that Palestinian-Jordan woman. In the Qur’an it states that women and men are equal in the eyes of Allah, and that is true. The reason women have a Walee is not because women are weak; it is because men can be manipulative and abusive. Women can easily be taken advantage of, but NOT because we’re weak (which we are not), it’s because men have the ability steal our innocence and ruin lives and families. Tell that Palestinian-Jordan woman to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Housseni and try to tell me women are weak!

The hate crime in Charleston, SC

Nine innocent lives were taken on June 17th, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina. Why? Why did this happen? The better question is: why did we let this happen? Everyone in this country claims people are free. Fox News even once said that “racism doesn’t exist in this country.” If that’s true, why do things like this happen? Here’s the truth: racism is everywhere; its integrated into society today and we don’t even notice it. 
Those inncent nine worshippers did not know that the end was coming for them. Why did it have to come anyway? That gunman had absolutely no reason or right to perform the hate crimes he did, and he shouldn’t have done them. As a country, I hope we mourn for the lost lives of the innocent, and pray that crimes like this stop. This country is called The United States of America. So let’s stand as a United State to stop rasicm. 

To those families, I’m sorry for your losses. Bless you for your strength and courage, and you are in my prayers.

Father’s Day

          I know I’m about a week late with this post, but I absolutely need to write about Father’s Day (which was 6/21/15). The word family is also an acronym for: Father And Mother I Love You. Moms and Dads need to be celebrated everyday, not just for the big sacrifices they make, but for the small ones as well. We may get upset with our parents about things that don’t go our way, but we need to keep in mind that love is kind and patient. 
          Parents give us unconditional love, even if they don’t tell us that every minute of the day. This Father’s Day, I hope everyone told their Dad what their love means to them, because none of us will be around forever. Thank you Dad for all the love you give us, the things you do for us, and the way you care for us. Dads would give their world for us, that is how much they care. 
To my own Dad, I’m sorry I don’t tell you as often as you deserve to hear this, but you mean the world to me.
