These *Weeks* On The Geekiary

The Geekiary

The Geekiary

Last Sunday I was still at the fourth annual Ice & Fire Con, so I missed my “This Week On The Geekiary” post…which means I have two weeks worth of links to catch up on!

 

But first…how awesome is this Iron Throne banner that my close friend and fellow Geekiary author K-K created?

Ice and Fire Con Iron Throne

Needless to say, the convention was awesome as always, and eventually I’ll collect my thoughts and share them here…let’s just say it’s been a very busy week since I got home. I still don’t know how I’ve kept up with my Geekiary articles, but clearly I did 😉

Ruby and Sapphire's Story The Answer Steven UniverseRuby and Sapphire’s Story “The Answer” Being Released as a Children’s Book
“When “The Answer” aired back at the beginning of January, it immediately became my favorite SU episode of all time. So my excitement knew no bounds when I heard that Ruby and Sapphire’s story is going to be made into a book – and even better, a *children’s* book!”
First The Magnificent Seven Trailer Reveals Diverse Cast & More
“I grew up watching the late-90s Magnificent Seven TV show with my family, so between that and my love for Chris Pratt, so far I can’t see anything to not love about the first The Magnificent Seven trailer.”

Game of Thrones Season 6 vs. A Song of Ice & Fire: Round 1
“This year I’ve waited until the last minute to write this first Game of Thrones Season 6 vs. A Song of Ice & Fire article, because as many fans know, the show has separated itself from the books quite a bit – and is now, in many respects, moving on from them in this upcoming season. It’s something that many fans are seriously concerned about; with all of the deviations (both the good, the understandable, and the downright crazy) Benioff and Weiss have already made, what’s going to happen when they have next to no source material to guide them?

Walker Stalker Con Joins Boycott Against Discriminatory North Carolina Law
“Yesterday Walker Stalker Con announced that they will be postponing their Charlotte, North Carolina convention. This change is because they, along with many other companies boycotting North Carolina, hope for a repeal of the state’s bigoted law which forces people to use the restroom of their assigned birth gender regardless of their actual gender identity.”

Star Wars: Bloodline Claudia GrayStar Wars: Bloodline to be Important Franchise Installment
Bloodline, the next Star Wars book by Claudia Gray, is being released on May 3rd, 2016 – and needless to say, the hype is strong with this one.”

April 30th, 2016
The 100 3×13 Review: Join or Die
“I have to be honest, when A.L.I.E. ordered that the gates of Polis be opened, I wasn’t expecting the horror that we were greeted with in “Join or Die”.”
Loot Pets 2016: The Quest Collection
“The past couple of months, the Loot Pets boxes I’ve received have been heavy on the treats and accessories…but The Quest Collection definitely included some different and fun items.”
Children of Earth and Sky: An Interesting Premise That Doesn’t Quite Work
“As someone who enjoys history (and has a B.A. in it, in fact) I was really intrigued when I heard about Guy Gavriel Kay’s new novel Children of Earth and Sky. The fact that it’s essentially billed as a fantasy novel that is loosely based on actual history drew me in for sure; I just wish that alone had been enough to keep my attention.”

This Week on The Geekiary

The Geekiary

One of the reasons I’m moving my website is because these days I write so much for other websites that it’s almost impossible to keep up with a personal blog. But I figured that it would be fun to put together a weekly list of my writings over on The Geekiary, because I’m insanely proud of being part of such an awesome site with a group of amazing people.

In the future I will likely schedule these posts on Sundays, but I’m doing it a bit early because one of my articles from this past week talks about an event happening tomorrow (tomorrow being Sunday, of course).

iZombie Season 2 Finale Gives Everything They Promised & More
“After last week’s ratings drop, I was champing at the bit for the iZombie season 2 finale ratings to come out – especially after watching the two-episode two-hour special, which was probably one of the best (if not the best) season finales I’ve ever seen.”

April 15th, 2016
Geek Fitness Alert: Train Like Marvel’s Super Heroes With Her Universe!
“As the type of person who loves working out, Marvel, and Her Universe, I was very excited for the announcement that this Sunday, April 17th, Ashley Eckstein will be hosting a Periscope called ‘Learn to Train like Marvel’s Super Heroes’.”

The 100 3×11 Review: Nevermore
