A new year is almost upon us and that means its time to try new things! Have a show, movie, book, or fandom we should check out? Or is there something you’d like to see more of on the SisterGeeks blog in 2019? Let us know in the comments below!
It’s finally December! Time to buy presents, put up decorations, and eat all the good food! And most importantly, time to watch all the holiday episodes! Every good TV show does holiday episodes: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. If you want your show to be good, you better have a holiday episode of some kind. What else am I suppose to do while I eat gingerbread cookies and avoid reality? Bob’s Burgers does amazing holiday episodes! The kids are hilarious, the situations are crazy, but relatable, and the characters are down right perfect. Don’t believe me? Just look up Linda Belcher quotes and then try to tell me that Linda isn’t the most amazing creature. During the holiday season, I like to re-watch holiday episodes to really get me in the spirit and this week I re-watched all the Bob’s Burgers holiday episodes and decided to do a Top 5 list. Come along with me on this magical holiday journey!

We didn’t get to talk to Noah for a few days since you know, his sister was just murdered. I’ve heard people need a bit of space after traumatic things like that happen. We had to wait the respectful amount of time, which felt like years instead of days. Eventually, we got to talk to Noah. Henry and I drove to the Starbucks in the next town over where we were set to meet Noah. I was nervous as all get out. Butterflies were threatening to fly right out of my stomach.
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!

Some heroes are even more heroic off-screen. From creating online movements to raise awareness for their cause (I’m looking at you, @David_Ramsey, raising awareness of testicular cancer #DontQuit), to building entire charities from the ground up, these celebs know how to make their mark.
