AlwaysReiding_EscapeRoom

::Around the Web:: Summer 2017

I just wanted to drop in and talk about some of the awesome things I’m thinking and seeing and hearing about on the Web right now. Hope you enjoy this!

#Husband and I got to go to an escape room with another couple that we hadn’t seen in FOREVER (okay, maybe a year). It was so much fun!

I heard this song twice before I found out it was an Ed Sheeran song.

Everafter: The Pandora Protocol

I’ve made no qualms about my love for Vertigo’s Fables. While I was sad when it ended, I was so happy when I heard that the series was going to continue. Thanks to the publisher and above the treeline for allowing me to read a digital copy in exchange for my honest review.

The last time we saw Connor Wolf, he was a child.

It’s Monday, What are you Reading?

Each Monday, The Book Date asks what we’re reading…  Please visit the site to link up your current list and hold yourself accountable. Also, you can visit some great blogs who are also doing this meme… It’s pretty awesome.

Last week, I worked on my work-life balance. And I was super happy with the results. I helped a family member at a doctor’s office by getting off of work a little early and even got a job offer with that (but it’s not what I’m currently looking for right now).

Summer Reading (as an Adult) with Los Angeles Public Library

LAPLSummerReading

Summer always meant one of the best parts of the year–Summer reading programs. While most of us have aged out of these programs (sadly), the Los Angeles County Public Library opened up a Summer reading program this month for adults!

I went to the library this month to collect my signup gift (a really awesome totebag) and then got to shop at the library store (which is way cool).

Comic Book Book Club!!!!

My temporary housing has another bright spot–the best comic book store in the area (in my opinion). And, this store is going to have a comic book talk next month… The best part? It’s about Terry Moore’s Motor Girl.

I’ve been a fan of Moore’s work for years–ever since I read Rachel Rising for a Gender in Comic books online class I took a few years ago.

Annotated Sandman Vol 1

The Sandman, Annotated Vol 1 Or: Unexpected Mail that turns your day around

A few weeks ago, the Bloggess posted a challenge to readers–post a book that you think you need right now to a special wishlist on Amazon and she would fulfill some of the requests. To say I had low expectations that I would be considered was an overstatement.

I put up the book above,
