Yay! Finally my February books! We have spent the last week moving and the week before that prepping to move so I have been a bit preoccupied (understandably). Better late than never though. I have been trying to read more from my physical book TBR shelf and have been slightly... Continue reading

It's either I am turning into a 15 year old boy who loves anime or maybe one of those e-girls? I'm 31 (I think?) and it's time to embrace my nerdy persona and dive head long into my love of manga, magic, anime, fantasy and sci-fi. This past year I... Continue reading

I'm not going to lie, I had a bit of anxiety about this Halloween. I asked my mom if we could do a little party at her house with just family instead of trick or treating. Trick or Treating in general always makes me a bit uneasy just because in... Continue reading
