Last week I received my first Gamer Girl Monthly box. I have wanted to try this subscription box for a while now, and was finally able to give it a go. Gamer Girl Monthly sends a monthly themed box with video game and geeky themed jewelry. Who doesn’t need more geek/video game jewelry!!
Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it’s Amy’s responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn’t ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip – and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar – especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory – but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.
Recently my friend the amazing LoudlySilent asked me to join their site Comics Recap as a contributor. I was bouncing off the walls I was so excited!
My first post on Comics Recap is now available. I hope that it makes you want to pick up this comic. I decided to write about the most recent comic I’ve read which was Giant Sized Little Marvel: A v X*, this adorable comic was written and drawn by Skottie Young and is amazing. Check out the review for more info.
After my post about Silk, I have had a little bit more invigoration to write more about comics. The problem is that I’m not that well versed. I only started collecting as recently as this year. As such I have been trying to jump in on any new series that strike me. Most of what I’ve been reading has been Marvel (because that’s where I tend to gravitate when I think of superheroes), but I’ve been wanting to expand that knowledge and try other series and other creators.
That all being said, I thought I’d throw it out to the universe and ask what comics you would recommend that I try next?
It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.
On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?
Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.
Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?
Kiss a stranger? Um…
Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy tale wedding—but a few poisoned apples could turn this happily-ever-after into a royal nightmare.
For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia’s gorgeous longtime boyfriend Michael managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course Mia didn’t need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.
But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother’s leaked “fake” wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia’s father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone— especially herself—that she’s not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?(from Goodreads)

Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” before “Sarah Palin,” Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon — from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence. Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.
