5 Fandom Photo A Week!

Super Space Chick and I had such a fun time doing our Fall and Christmas Instagram Challenges that we want to do even more!

Instagram is my favorite of the social media apps and I cannot wait to make my feed even more nerdier! {It's pretty nerdy already!}

So for the entire month of July we have picked some topics for you to photograph!

July 1-9th - Share with us pictures of your summer reading! Your books, where you are reading them, what you might be drinking with your reads and who you might be reading with!

July 10th - 16th - Villains! Fictional...non fictional?! You decide!

July 17th - 23rd - Convention Envy! YUP I WON'T be at SDCC this I'll have a lot to be envious over. Could be a Con flashback week for me! Or what you are doing instead of being at San Diego Comic Con. #conenvy

July 24th - 31st - As a conclusion to the Harry Potter Month Link Up on our blogs, Super Space Chick and I decided let's end the month will ALL things Potter with the release of the new book! You will probably see a LOT of my tattoo this week! LOL

As a reminder 5 Fandom Friday will be replaced with Harry Potter Month for July. See all the information on Harry Potter Month HERE and can't wait to see your Instagram creations. Don't forget to tag us in your posts and #5FFPhoto!

5FF for June is Harry Potter Month!

Who's ready to head back to Hogwarts?!

The release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming on July 31st! I am so excited to see what our favorite DA members have been up to for the past 19 years (even though the story will focus primarily on their offspring).  

Kristen and I wanted to host a blog event worthy of one of our favorite fandoms so we decided to declare July POTTER MONTH and make it a month long celebration!  We're encouraging everyone to post as many wizarding posts as they see fit to spread wizard love in the blogosphere! Unlike 5 Fandom Friday, we're not going to give you a specific topics to follow because we want everyone to be creative! 

Here's a list of post ideas to you get you started: sorting non-HP characters into Hogwarts houses, magical outfits of the day, Harry Potter ships, House pride, re-read or re-watch thoughts, thoughts on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child excited? not excited?, etc.  

I can't wait to see what everyone will come up with! We're also going to have a link-up go live on July 1st when Potter month kicks off so you can begin linking your posts and lasting through August 1st.  Please use the below format when linking {Link up begins on July 1st!}:

Blog Post Title - Your Name @ Your Blog Name

ie. This is my kick-off post so I would type:

Potter Month Celebration & Link-Up - Megan @ The Nerdy Girlie

Don't forget to check back HERE throughout the month to see what your fellow Potter fans are up to and #PotterMonth on social media!

The Gamer Geek's Graphic Novel Picks For June

Sorry I haven’t posted many reviews lately. My first year of college was pretty crazy/stressful and I had to take a step back and pace myself. I will try to be better about posting more regularly and I’m excited to have attend Denver Comic Con and can't wait for San Diego Comic Con – I know I’m going to come home with a lot of graphic novels which means more reviews for you!
1. NAILBITER by Joshua Williamson, Mike Henderson, Adam Guzowski, John J. Hill, and Rob Levin

Nailbiter is a mystery, horror series centered on Nicholas Finch, an NSA agent, who travels to the town of Buckaroo, Oregon. Buckaroo is a town notoriously known for being the home of over sixteen of the worst serial killers in the world. In this story Finch must team up with the serial killer Edward “Nailbiter” Warren to find his missing friend and solve the mystery Buckaroo’s serial killer origins.
When I first picked Nailbiter off the shelf at my local comics shop I was immediately sucked into the story. I found myself wanting to know more about the town of Buckaroo, Oregon. Each character in this story feels so realized and well thought out, plus the attention to detail from panel to panel is excellent. The art style does well to complement the dark and mysterious tone of the story and at times feels like scenes form a TV show.

Overall, I’d recommend Nailbiter if you’re a fan of Silence of the Lambs or a fan of anything horror related.
2. This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki

This One Summer is the story of young girl named Rose. Every summer Rose takes a trip with her parents to Awago beach -- a place she’s been visiting ever since she was little. But this won’t be an ideal trip for Rose because of issues between her mother and father, and Rose and Windy, her best friend, have gotten themselves thrown in the middle of a small town drama.

This One Summer is by far on my top ten list for most read graphic novels. It’s a story I can never put down, and it’s always reminded me of my own family trips to the Outer Banks. One thing that I applaud the novel for is its art style -- the details in each character’s face are so captivating and at the same time simple and clean looking. I also love that the novel itself is not in color, it’s in black and white and leaves the readers imagination open to interpret what they themselves would see in that situation/place. 

Seriously, go out and pick up this graphic novel! I always end up coming back to it when I’m bored or I am craving a good story.

Thank you guys for sticking by me and supporting me.

I’ll see ya next time,
