It is no secret that I cannot wait for Avengers: Infinity War to hit theaters on May 4th. I am a bit of a Marvel Fan Girl, in case you did not know, and have been counting the days for years. As a big comic book fan, I have seen this coming for quite some time. If you are not someone who reads comics, let me suggest at least five that you should pick up before heading to theaters. Trust me, this will help you walk in to the film prepared – but won’t give anything away!
In case you have been living under a rock, let me tell you that I am a bit of a Marvel fan. I love the comic books as well as the movies. I also have an insane amount of Marvel collectibles. As you might already know, the Guardians of the Galaxy are one of my all time favorites (I mean, hello, I have a full tattoo sleeve featuring them). Lately, they have been tossed around the comic book universe. What I mean by that is there was a short run by Brian Bendis, then another by Garry Duggan, which abruptly went from All New Guardians of the Galaxy #12 to Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest #146 (still written by Garry Duggan) seemingly over night. Which is not entirely a bad thing, however, because man, is it good.
Black Panther is hitting theaters in February 2018 and is highly anticipated by Marvel fans everywhere. I am certainly one of those fans who is dying to see what Marvel does with this film. Admittedly, I am sad knowing that Storm won’t be in it – but thanks to that exciting deal being worked out by Disney and Fox, we might see her in the future! Wakanda is one of my favorite places in the Marvel Comics world, so seeing it become a part of the MCU is pretty awesome. If you don’t normally read the comics, but want a good background on the man himself, Black Panther, before heading to theaters in February, here are 5 books I think you should pick up.
This job is not all sunshine and rainbows. Yes, I have some amazing experiences, but I also have lots and lots of deadlines. Throw having two girls that I love more than anything – but that are becoming quite the little sassypants – into the mix and life can get stressful. Something that always relaxes me and resets my mind is coloring. I try to sit down and do this at least once a week. I just grab my favorite gel pens, and set aside an hour or so. My favorite adult coloring books are all Disney themed. They are relaxing and fun, so I wanted to share them with you!
Everyone is finally back-to-school and working hard. But Snoopy would like to remind parents and kids to take a break from the grueling homework and serious textbooks every once in a while with these two new and entertaining Peanuts-themed books! Enter to win copies of Hugs for Snoopy and Peanuts for Inspiration and Relaxation!
One of my favorite things to do with my girls is cuddle up and read a good book. It is something that we look forward to doing almost every day as a family. Recently, we received an advance copy of Bruce’s Big Move from Disney-Hyperion, and I must say, we loved it right away. The story itself is cute and funny – and we can’t help but love the grumpy bear Bruce. It even teaches a great lesson to kids – there’s no place like home.
My young daughters and I love to read together. It is something we try to do at least once or twice a day. We are always looking for new books to add to our library, so we were thrilled to get an advance copy of Cookiesaurus Rex! This book had us all giggling uncontrollably – even my husband. If you are looking for a book that will make your belly sore from laughing so hard, this is it. Cookiesaurus Rex will bring families together with all of its fun!
Let’s face it, 2017 has already been a pretty good year for movies. Especially for geeks like me! I mean, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and now we have Thor: Ragnarok to look forward to. I know I have told you guys time after time, but I am am a pretty big comic book fan. I have been reading Marvel Comics since I was a little girl – and Thor has always been a favorite of mine. If you don’t know much about Thor and Hulk besides what you have seen in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), I encourage you to pick up these few comics to familiarize yourself with them more.
I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Inhumans coming to ABC in September. The Inhumans comic book series is one of my favorites and has been for a long time. The characters are all amazing and the story lines always have me hooked. Black Bolt and Medusa are one of my absolute favorite comic book couples. Now, I know many people out there don’t know much about The Inhumans. I put together a list of my favorite trade paperbacks that are sure to get you hooked on them – and also ready for the ABC TV Series!
I have two young girls who are 4 and 6 years old. They are quite the artists and just love to express themselves. We also love to read and one of our favorite books is Beautiful Oops. A while back, we received an advance copy and have been reading it at least once a week since. This book is filled with “mistakes” and “errors” that were made and then turned in to something else. For example, spilled paint becomes an elephant. It is fun to see my girls use their imaginations to discover what the mistakes can be turned in to.
