Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year’s ExcelsiCon isn’t her last, she’ll… Continue reading Review: The Princess and the Fangirl // A celebration of fan culture and conventions
Although I’m sad that July is over, I’m excited to be taking part in ARC August this year. ARC August is an annual reading challenge hosted by Octavia and Shelly @ReadSleepRepeat.

And a sneaky few books that I may or may not have already read. Quite a few of these aren’t your typical ‘summer reads’, but… Continue reading July 2019 TBR // Not-so-summer reads?
YALC is the big UK literature convention that happens every summer and is undoubtedly the highlight of my bookish calendar. I get to hang out with friends (which is especially fun when you haven’t seen each other for ages), go to panels, and line up for author signings with my faves. I don’t think it’s… Continue reading Books I want to read before YALC (if I can find enough hours in the day)
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
