Top 10 Y’allFest Haul

By: Taylor

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!

Top 5 Lamest Disney Animated Films

By Jen P

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
