About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.
  • I have read a whopping 0 books on that list! I guess I’m more of an Urban Fantasy fan. Inception and the Dark Knight are on the top of my list of movies. I love intense action and questionable morality, though I didn’t know they counted as fantasy.

  • I love this post! I, too, haven’t read any of those books on the list, but then I realized that most SF I read is older or just plan Fantasy, can’t wait to read those books. Of the list of movies, I have seen all but 2 and don’t know which to pick as #1.

  • Oh, I loved INCEPTION, it’s such a fantastic movie just as in SHUTTER ISLAND Leo did a great job!
