Hand Me That Glass Slipper

This month’s book pick in the IGGPPC Bookworms GoodReads group was Geekerella, by Ashley Poston. I read this book in basically a day, it was that good! Geekerella is a new spin on a classic story we all know and love, Cinderella. The classic Cinderella story is on of my favorite children’s tales, and was one of my favorite movies growing up. Since then there have been neurmous takes on the story, in print and in film, but Geekerealla is different and has a truly unique take on story and characters.

Geekery of the Month: Get UR Niffler On

I saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on opening day, as any good PotterHead should. I liked the movie, but I loved Niffler! Nifflers was actually mentioned in the Harry Potter books. I believe it was in the Order of the Phoenix; one was set loose in Umbrige’s office, which made her put extra security, and caused her to be able to catch Harry when he attempts to use her fireplace.
I feel like Niffler stole the screen when ever he was present. If there was a movie about the misadventures of that Niffler, I would go see it at least 3 times. That is how entertained I was by him. So to express my infatuation with him I made this everyday cosplay outfit.

Book of the Month: A Court of Thorns and Roses

844a50259434947262b2aba9993c8463

New year means new books to read! This year I’ve already read three and I’m making my way through the fourth. By the end of January I hope to have five books read. Last year my good reads challenge was to read 40 books, I met that and beat it, ending with 45 books read total. So this year I am hoping to read 50. I feel like it’s a lot, but that is also how I felt when I set the goal of 45 books last year.

#ReadThemAllThon Revenge Of The Witch Review

I’ve finished my first book for the #ReadThemAllThon! Revenge of the Witch was a really quick read for me, and about half way through it dawned on me that the story sounded so familiar because I had seen the movie. I didn’t care for the movie much, but it was alright. Which is what this book was.

Books I’ve been Reading: June & July

I actually got a lot of reading done in July! I thought I was maybe going to get through one book, when I really got through two! Yay! In July I read The Magicians with my friends Bree & Ann, and This Savage Song. In June I read Starflight (which was also an Iggle Bookworms pick) and Four. These are my thoughts…

Accio Firebolt!

Camp is awesome!
and the BEST camp is IGGPPCamp! Registration is currently open to be placed in a troop. You could even be placed in my troop! Troop Firebolt is inspired by the magic of Harry Potter – from flying high in the sky to friendship adventures – with all the potions, charms, and magical creatures along the way. The troop motto: “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” represents our troublemaking side and that natural ability to find ourselves in a pickle every once in awhile. We are a perfect combination of all the houses at Hogwarts, with a Slytherin and a Gryffindor leading the charge! (I’m the Gryffindor, lol)
 You can read about the other troops here.  If you want to meet a bunch of super cool people and have a good time hanging out on the internet I highly recommend IGGPPCamp! Hope to see you in the mess hall!

The Firebolt

Back in the day, like 2005-ish, at some point, when the books were being released still. In the summers I was stuck on a tractor (my parents own a farm) in the hot sun all day long. Well that can drive anyone crazy, so I found a new cool thing called a Podcast (wow that makes me sound old!), specifically MuggleCast, which covered any and all news, & fan theories about Harry Potter. One day they were talking about Harry and the Potters and The Moaning Myrtles, turns out they were bands that made music about Harry Potter. It changed my life- and helped me keep my sanity in the summer!

Here are some of my favorites from back in the day + some of their new stuff that I didn’t know about and is awesome!
