Sunday Post: March 31

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at the Caffeinated Reader. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and things you’ve received. The rules are here: The Sunday Post.

This week, I signed up for NetGalley and got my first three ARCs:

I read and reviewed the first two:

Red, White, & Royal Blue review

Murder at Morrington Hall review

I’m currently reading Tiger Queen, and I have to admit, it’s a bit of a struggle. I like the main character, but the world is hard for me to get into. I hope that will change, because I really like the concept of the book.

I also finished reading Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo and reviewed it here.

On Sunday, I went the library to return a book and wound up getting three more books:

I think I’m going to try Eliza and her Monsters first. It’s about an introverted girl who has an online life with a wildly popular webcomic. As someone who was heavily invested in fandom, I gravitate towards stories about people who are fannish in some way.

My posts this week:

I also went to WonderCon where I went a little crazy with the 50% off trade paperbacks.

Well, crazy for me, at any rate.

On Friday I dressed up in my Star Trek dress I found at Forever 21 a few years ago

And Saturday, I was Spot Conlon from Newsies.

Brooklyn!

The panels I went to on Saturday were:

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund: Legacy of Censorship, which was about the history of the comics code and really facinating

The 4:30 movie: Disney week, which was a podcast where each panelist chooses a movie based on a theme. My sister and I suggested Newsies for one of them, it didn’t make the cut.

30th Anniversary: Back to the Future Part II

Fanbase Press: Watchmen 10th Anniversary, where I seemed to be the only person in the room who actually liked the movie

And then I caught the tail end of the Honest Trailers Plus Movie Fights panel.

The panels I went to on Sunday were:

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund: Women’s Activism, which was all about the influence women have had in the comic’s industry. It was really interesting and made me realize that I need to start reading more women-created comics.

Gay Geeks and Where to Find Them, which took a panel of LGBT content creators and they discussed how being gay has influenced their work and how they use it to help create diversity in the industry. This was a really great panel.

I also bought some art pieces. I got a gorgeous print featuring the characters from Captain America: the Winter Soldier and a Cap postcard. I also got a postcard of Will Graham from the TV show Hannibal. And then, I found two really beautiful Phantom of the Opera pieces, so now I have to start a Broadway wall of art in my room at home.

That was my week. It felt long, but it also went by way too quickly. Isn’t it strange how that can happen? How was your week?
