Playing Catch Up

Why hello there, long time, no see!  It has been quite awhile since I updated – over three months actually – eek!

My husband and I are expecting a baby boy in May so as you can imagine, our world is in the process of being turned upside down.  We’ve decided on a Harry Potter nursery, is anyone actually surprised??

Our baby announcement!

We’ve gotten some of the major furniture items, done the baby registry, my friends are planning my NC baby shower and my next item of business is researching daycare for after I go back to work. The whole things still seems surreal!


Harry Potter flying key mobile

My best friend from college was in Atlanta for a conference so we went a bit baby crazy.  We made this gorgeous Harry Potter mobile using this YouTube video as a reference:  I am absolutely in love with it!

Amidst all the baby preparations, I did keep up with my reading.  Yes it is February but I would still like to share a few of my favorites from 2015:

Favorite Comics – The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Nimona, Locke and Key, Rat Queens, Trillium, Descender, Wytches, Saga, Ms. Marvel

Favorite Books – Carry On, The Revenge Playbook, An Ember in the Ashes, Speak, I’ll Give You the Sun, Rose Under Fire, Legend

Favorite TV Shows – Orphan Black, Supergirl

Favorite Movies – Star Wars, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two.

I hope you all have been doing well these path few months, reading some great books, and nerding out with some wonderful fandoms!



Bookshelf Thursday

I did a minor amount of book shuffling on the shelves today.  Kendare Blake got moved around a little bit; I do like to keep author’s books together even if they span genres.  Some pretty good YA in this cubby if I do say so myself!


April Genevieve Tucholke: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys

Kendare Blake: Anna Dressed in Blood, Girl of Nightmares, Antigoddess, Sleepwalk Society.

Andrew Smith: Grasshopper Jungle, 100 Sideways Miles

Becky Albertalli: Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda

Rachel Allen: 17 First Kisses, The Revenge Playbook

Gayle Forman: Just One Day, Just One Year

Gwenda Bond: Girl on a Wire

Jennifer Miller: The Year of the Gadfly

I just finished Slasher Girls and Monster Boys today, I’ll post a review this weekend!  The next book on my list is Mosquitoland by David Arnold for bookclub next week (and of course I’m still perpetually in the middle of A Game of Thrones) What have you been reading this week?
