It’s the season of gratitude! Unlike many, I don’t actually love Thanksgiving. It’s basically just the holiday that stands in the way of it being socially acceptable for me to fully embrace my Christmas enthusiasm at midnight on November 1. However, I do appreciate that many people try to stop and take a moment to be grateful for the good things in their lives. In the spirit of the season, I’ve got some of the top fandoms for which I’m most thankful. Keep reading to see if any of mine are yours, too.
I just got back from Y’allFest! Woo! It was amazing as always. Lots of books, lots of fellow book nerds, and lots of authors! If you haven’t heard of Y’allFest, it’s a young adult book festival in Charleston, SC. There are book signings, author panels, ARC (advanced reading copy) giveaways, and so much more! It’s an amazing event and this is my 3rd year going and it just gets better and better each year. I love going to get tons of books and attend a few panels, but mostly I like going to experience the amazingness of the YA book community. There’s so many people there and while you wait in line for an ARC or for a panel or signing, you strike up conversations about books and life and you end up with a new friend and a few more book recommendations. It’s honestly just so wonderful. I highly, highly recommend this festival. On another hand, since I just got back, I decided to share my Y’allFest haul with you guys! So here’s a list of the top 10 ARC’s* I got from Y’allFest!
It’s Fall, y’all! There’s finally a chill in the air and the leaves are showing their true colors. Apple cider is readily available, the kiddos are dressed up in their cutest costumes, the grownups are dressed in their geekiest gear, and there’s candy EVERYWHERE. I absolutely adore this time of year. Fall is my favorite season. In no small part because right about now, my witch obsession is not considered weird. Since the witching season is finally upon us, here’s a list of 5 of the best witching families to revisit this time of year.
It’s the best time of the year! No, it’s not Treat Yo Self 2018, instead it’s the week that a new season of American Horror Story premieres! And it’s almost fall, which means it’s almost Halloween, which also means it’s time to put up all the decorations! In the creepy spirit of this incredible show, I thought I’d take a look back at all the other great seasons and pick out my favorite characters. It was so hard to get this list down to just 10 because there are so many amazing and scary characters. So while you’re waiting for the next new episode, check out my list* and geek out with me about all these terrifying, but lovely characters!
By now, any of you who’ve read my articles know that I love Disney. I try to visit the parks once a year, I dress up like Belle for cons, and my kids are even named after characters from a Disney video game. But that being said, Disney isn’t without its flaws.
From gaping plot holes to straight-up racism, Disney has a secret world of sh*t they’d like you to forget about. So grab your popcorn, and read on as I break down my grievances with the most magical media conglomerate on Earth from their least offensive tripe to the blatantly obnoxious. Continue reading →
It has happened! Season 6 of Orange is the New Black is out into the world and it’s amazing! But, this isn’t a review. No, since new season is out, I thought we should go back and look at the best quotes all these wonderful seasons have given us. So sit down and get comfy, because we’re going back to Litchfield.
2018 is finally here and fingers crossed it’ll be less of a dumpster fire than 2017. A new year means a new you? NO! It means new books! 2018 seems like it is going to be the year of the amazing reads. All books on this list are young adult books and are first books in a series or stand alone books. Buckle up boys and girls because we are going to go on a YA adventure!
