I received an arc of Geekerella before its release, and was lucky enough to receive one of The Princess and the Fangirl as well! Before this I had read Geekerella and Heart of Iron from Poston, so I knew I loved her style. I also knew that Geekerella is one of two Cinderella adaptations I enjoy (the other is the movie with Brandi).
I received this graphic novel as a review copy from Quirk books, and I didn’t know much about it. I knew it was an adaptation of a Salvador Dalí screenplay, starring the Marx brothers, but I had no idea what it really was, or the work that went into it.
A couple weeks ago I went to Barnes and Noble to fill up my (already huge) TBR pile, and came home with Manfried the Man. This graphic novel from Quirk Books was the first thing I read, and I fell in love with it immediately.
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!

Fangirls, last weekend I had some plans. There was Earthworld Comics’ Fangirls Night Out on Friday, I had work Saturday, and then I was going to do a ton of writing to get some planning stuff done. But I ended up staying at work late and going to a baby shower for several hours after that. At the baby shower, my mother mentioned that something came in the mail for me. I assumed it was my Ladybox from Madame Ladybug, but she said it was book shaped. Fast forward, and we got home. My mum handed me the mystery package and I opened it, and instantly started screaming. The advance copy of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy was in my hands, and to be honest, I was losing my
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.
Fangirls and Fanboys, I was so excited for this book. A book about dating specially tailored for those with stereotypically bad social skills? Heck yeah. I was going to read this book, but Eric Smith himself tweeted that Amazon was having a sale on his audiobook, so I thought I’d check it out. It was under $5, so of course I was on that like the proverbial white on rice.
