5 Fandom Friday - Galentines Day Gifts

  When I first saw this prompt I was like, huh?! I was not at all familar with the concept so had to look it up. “Oh it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it. Ladies celebrating ladies.” – Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knopein Parks and Recreation   This is something that I can embrace and totally get on board with. Growing up I found it very difficult to have female friends because I was more of a tom boy and intoRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - My TBR pile

My TBR pile is massive and has multiple parts. If you head over to my goodreads profile you can see my many bookshelves. I even have my TBR pile divided by whether they’re available at my two local libraries. So, yeah, this prompt was a pest! Narrowing it down to just 5 books was difficult, so I decided to add a sub-category to the prompt. First I considered new releases, new authors, indie books and comics (my local library just got an awesome subscription to Comics Plus so yey access to free digital comics!). In the end, I settled for this; 5 books in ongoingRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - 2017 goals

I’m still playing catch up after the holidays so this is a few days late! As I’m going to be doing two other goal related posts, one for the new year and one for January, I decided to use this prompt to look at specifically fandom and nerdy related things I want to do in 2017.   Video Games While World of Warcraft is usually my primary game, I do have a variety of games sitting around waiting for me to play. Chris and I often get stuff cheap in steam sales or Humble Bundles, as well as snatching up free games from Origin andRead More →

5 Fandom Friday - Christmas wishlish 2016

This weeks prompt was christmas songs, but as I did that last week I decided to pick one from previous years. You’re probably thinking, hey, didn’t you just post your wish list? Well, my holiday wishes list is a general one and this, this is the super duper fandom edition!   Books! So my to read list is always growing and I’m pretty sure will never end, which I’m ok with. However, there are a few books on my wish list that I really want to read ASAP. Poison Fruit by Jacqueline Carey – She is one of my favourite authors but the libraries rarelyRead More →

Christmas Wishes 2016

For several years now I’ve taken part in the livejournal community Holiday Wishes. To sum it up quickly; it’s a place where you post your wishes, and others post theirs and you help each other out by doing what you can. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to reply, to comment, or send you a sweet card to make someone’s December a little bit easier. It can be a very stressful month in many ways and 2016 has been an awful year in many respects. So hop on over to Holiday Wishes to read the rules and check out other people’s lists and makeRead More →
