Disney has finally released a trailer for their much talked about A Wrinkle in Time adaptation. Click below to check it out and hear some of our thoughts. Full disclosure I never really liked the book.

Geeky Book Club: Geekerella
Full disclosure, I am a lover of fairytales and their retellings. I have read THOUSANDS of versions of them. There is something so interesting to me about taking the same old story we know and love and twisting it into something new. Sometimes the results are wonderful, other times, not so much.
I had heard about Geekerella by Ashley Poston back when it came out last April, but hadn’t had a chance to pick myself up a copy. Then, while staying with one of my best friends, I noticed it on her bookshelf, and being the AMAZING person she is, she gave me the go ahead to raid her bookshelves whenever I like. Clearly this was one of the first one I pilfered. Click below for my thoughts.
Black Milk Clothing Harry Potter Line
It’s not secret we LOVE Black Milk Clothing. It’s definitely on the pricey side, but they have some great pieces. This week they debuted their Harry Potter line, and it is GORGEOUS! Check it out below.
Geeky Book Club: The Fangirl’s Guide To The Galaxy by Sam Maggs
Ok, so it’s not a new release. In fact I have no idea why it has taken me so long to pick up The Fangirl’s Guide To The Galaxy, and for that I am slightly ashamed. I knew of the book’s release way back in 2015, and have been a fan of Sam Maggs since she was an editor for The Mary Sue. But whatever the reason, be it time, money, laziness I hadn’t picked up a copy for myself til this year’s at New York Comic Con. Click below to see my thoughts.

‘Black Widow: Forever Red’ The YA novel every girl needs.
A few days ago, fellow geek and friend Andrea of A TV Geek (@atvgeek82) wrote a lovely article for EW about this awesome YA novel about to hit the market. Penned by Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), this new project announced at NYCC 2014 during the ‘Women of Marvel’ panel has for real piqued our interest.
Kate Mulgrew: Commanding The Free Library of Philadelphia
A few weeks back I posted my reaction/review to Kate Mulgrew’s NY Times best selling memoir ‘Born With Teeth.’ Last night, the Free Library of Philadelphia hosted a book signing and talk back with Kate to promote the book and give us all a bit of inflection to go along with her words. She read three selected passages from her book before making us all roar with laughter for another 35 minutes of questions.
‘Born With Teeth’ – A memoir of a life lived passionately by Kate Mulgrew
Eagerly anticipated are the wrong words for how I felt about getting this memoir in my hands. Vibrating with excitement is probably a better way to describe it, although excitement seems too girlish. I first learned of its existence last fall on Facebook, of all places, and marked the preorder date in my phone calendar because I would be damned if I was going to miss it and not have it arrive on my doorstep as soon as possible. Kate Mulgrew is more than an actress, more than the character of Kathryn Janeway to my teenage mind looking for a hero. She is a woman just like all of us and she has lived a life that can not be described in one word or fifty.
Gillian Anderson to pen new book titled ‘WE’ – A women’s self-help guide
After a roaring success (at least I’m calling it that) with her first novel, A Vision of Fire, released back in October, it was only a matter of time before Gillian Anderson took to the page again. While A Vision of Fire is only the first in a series penned with co-author Jeff Rovin, it will likely be a while before we see the publishing of the second novel in the series. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for this new novel by Anderson titled WE.
