Nick and Tesla’s Special Effects Spectacular by “Science Bob” Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith

Fangirls, I love Quirk Books.  It’s a publishing company that seems like it can do no wrong, and I can’t get enough of it.  I first heard of Quirk when I found out about The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Sam Maggs, that will be released early next month.  Of course it peaked my interest, it’s about Fangirls.  Then I realized that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was also from Quirk.  After that, I listened to Eric Smith’s The Geek’s Guide to Dating, and read the sequel to Miss Peregrine (Hollow City), and it has continued to escalate.  Believe me when I say that the pure joy that comes with reading a Quirk book has continued through my reading of Nick and Tesla’s Special Effects Spectacular.

Sweet honey type treats, accompanied by all sorts honey inspired things. Pooh taught me a lot of things, but maybe most importantly he taught me that honey makes everything better.

Fangirls! I stumbled upon a great little app the other night that kept me up for quite sometime. This game is one of those wonderfully frustrating types. One of those game that you’ll keep going back to best yourself no matter how angry it makes you. Through all the grunting, it’s a damn good time. On The Line is perfect for those games you love to hate and hate to love.
