Hello again! We’re here with the books I read this past month, and my goals for next month as well! This may be a bit off because I am currently on my way to Walt Disney World (heck yes), so my final tally may not be exact to this. Below is the photo of my reading goals for February, so you can compare it to all of the books I actually read!
I know it’s food review time. I even made falafel that’s super tasty to share with you this weekend. But the first issue of the second ZS storyline came out yesterday, and the falafel will just have to wait. Friends, I love Zodiac Starforce. The characters got so much wonderful treatment in the first storyline, and now we have the incredible pleasure of joining them once again.
Fangirls! Remember that phenomenal, women-centric book that Sam Maggs has written that we talked about last week, Wonder Women?! Well it’s such a rad book that the brought the release date up two weeks! Wonder Women will now be released on October 4th, that’s one week from today! And if you weren’t excited enough for it, hold on to your hats.
The absolutely incredible Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce & Another Castle) and Jen Bartel (Jem & Girl Gang) have been commissioned by the Quirk books crew to create some stunning wallpapers for giveaway with the book! Everyone that pre-orders Wonder Women will be entered to win a framed print, signed by the artist and Sam Maggs!
If you haven’t preordered Wonder Women yet, I urge you to. It’s an amazing book; well written, incredibly researched, and perfectly put. It’s endorsed by Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, and is exactly what every woman and girl (and the dudes too) on your holiday shopping list needs.
Preorder this book, Fangirls, because it’s so dang good, and you are going to love every minute you spend reading and rereading it!

Alright fangirls, it’s time. Tomorrow I leave for this year’s Small Press Expo (aka SPX), and I’m both terrified and incredibly excited. On one hand, it’s time for one of my favorite conventions ever, on the other, there are a lot of people to meet, and a lot of things to do. So where do I start?
Fangirls, it’s here. The comic I’ve been losing my mind over for the past couple of months, Zodiac Starforce, was released today. If you’ve been following my twitter, or instagram, or know me at all, you know that I’ve been in love with one character, Kim, since I saw her. I cosplay as her, obsess over her, all that jazz. Now I’ve been able to finally “meet” her, and it’s amazing.
Warning: this contains first issue spoilers. You should go read the issue.
Fangirls, I know we’ve discussed the importance of having female role models in the nerd related media before. Today I would like to talk about body type representation, because it’s something that can be extremely difficult to find for someone of my size.
Fangirls, anxiety, though not an actual person, is a huge villain in my life, and that of many of my friends.
