Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is fantastic

We watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them last weekend and holy crap it was awesome. I remember feeling so grateful for the creators and the technology for making the magic come alive onscreen and I was also thinking to myself how awesome it would be to live in that magical world. Yeah, I freakin’ loved it.

Hello, November! (plus my favorite writers’ resources)

Aaaand just like that it’s November. And we know what that means – it’s NaNoWriMo once again. Yep.

NaNoWrimo or National Novel Writing Month is when people attempt to write and finish a novel for the entire month of November. Well, the goal is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words. Some folks say it’s crazy, some folks say it works for them. For me, I see it as a personal challenge to START something.

Review of The Boy Without a Heart (Defragmenting Daniel #3) by Jason Werbeloff

The Boy Without a Heart Defragmenting Daniel 3About The Boy Without a Heart

The Boy Without a Heart is the final fragment of the thrilling sci-fi trilogy, Defragmenting Daniel.

5 organs regained. 2 organs away from becoming whole. The bodies are piling up.

Time is running out for Daniel. Kage has discovered the Organ Thief’s identity, and is closing in. He has evaded Kage so far, but at a terrible cost – Daniel has lost his face.

He finds love with Autumn Beckett, who makes the search for his missing liver and amygdala more treacherous than he could have imagined. At the same time, cracks form in Daniel’s fragile alliance with Margaret, as he struggles to contain the android’s insatiable bloodlust.

To be truly whole again, Daniel must become more than the sum of his parts. But can he avoid falling to pieces in the process?

This third and final installment of Defragmenting Daniel erupts in a bloodbath that will skin you alive, bleed you out, and stitch you back together.

I love the Harry Potter series. I mean, who doesn’t, right? Well, actually, I can name a few peeps who don’t really care about Harry Potter as much as most of us do – I mean, what?? – but, you know, they’re entitled to their own thing and I’m not up in arms about it. ANYWAY, so yesterday I got the email from Pottermore about finding out your Patronus and of course I had to go see what mine is!

graphic tees

Thursday is a good day for graphic tees.

Yay t-shirts! It is fun to look at fun graphic tees. Hey, come join me! Look at this week’s tee rundown and tell me which one’s your favorite.

Write Every Day by Wondermark (TopatoCo): This is pretty nice. I like the whole classic sword and quill and gothic banner thing going on. This would look cool as ink, too, don’t ya think?

Wearwolves by Sam and Fuzzy (TopatoCo)Wearwolves! Wear your wolves so as not to lose them! They all look so happy that it makes me really happy. We should all be so lucky to be happy with our wearwolves or other wear-animals for that matter.

Cat Burglar by Sam and Fuzzy (TopatoCo)Eeep! This is just so cute. But why are the kitties in a safe?? I mean, thank goodness for the cat burglar setting them free, but whyyy are they in a safe? And why is there only one little black cat? And those poor kitty cats falling on the floor!! Okay, this tee is making me feel many feelings.

Boston Terriers Yoga by Huebucket (DesignbyHumans)Adorable! I love dogs and I’m trying to get into yoga regularly so this tank speaks to me at the moment. There are other versions of this design with other adorable animals. They’re all adorable. I want them all. The tees and the adorable animals.

Read or Die (Book Riot Store)Book Riot has some really cool reading-related tee designs. You should check them all out. There’s one with a rose and a dagger that has the same vibe as the first tee in this post. I want them all. That is all.

And that’s it for today’s T-Shirt Thursday. Yayyy.
