Hey all, Dani here. Somehow we've reached the beginning of August already, and Damian and I just wrapped up Gen Con Online. Since we had already planned on having a hotel for the convention, we still booked one so we could have good internet, a comfy bed, and air conditioning. Is it stupid to say… Continue reading Calendar Girls: August 2020

Weekly Wrap-Up (68)

Hey all, Dani here. Woohoo, it's Wednesday. It has started getting really hot here in Ohio, and unfortunately working in a factory means that it is ungodly hot while at work, so the past couple of days have not been pleasant.

Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Hey all, Dani here. Black Lives Matter. It seems crazy that we need to keep saying that statement in 2020. But I will be one of the ones to keep saying it until we can make it true.

I am… Continue reading Recommendations: For Fans of Broadway

So for today's recommendations posts, I want to toss… Continue reading Recommendations: Books About Books

Review: The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin

Hey all, Dani here. Are you ready for my second review of the day? This one isn't quite as backlisted as this morning's post, because this is a book I read in February.
