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.
I can’t believe it’s February already! I hope this month is treating everyone alright so far. This 5 Fandom Friday is all about TBR (to be read) lists, and mine seems to always be getting longer, rather than shorter. So many books-so little time!
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.
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…
Readatmidnight.com is hosting a Pokemon Go themed Read- A- Thon and I just have to get in on this! It sounds so fun! If you want to participate check out the original post here. I hope you guys join in! For me this is an excellent chance to check off some of those books that have been hanging out on my TBR for about two years now.
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!
