Valar Morghulis: Battling the long wait with Game of Thrones Fan Theories

Anyone else think it’s been WAY too long waiting for Game of Thrones? I just can’t contain my excitement. In light of the new series coming out (not soon enough), my head is swarming with Game of Thrones fan theories! Let’s get some buzz going (as if you’re not buzzing already) and recap where we are and figure out where this story will end up in it’s final series! I am going to be SO sad when it’s all over, so I can’t wait to take in every moment.

Feminism and Science: “Women In Science” and “A Galaxy of Her Own” Book Review

I wanted to share with you, two amazing books I was gifted. As some of you may know from my previous collaboration infographic, I am a feminist.

Any books that celebrate the achievements of women are always welcome in my library!

A Geek’s Guide: 5 Ways Dungeons and Dragons can Change your Life

Muggle Musings: How Important is Love in the Harry Potter books?

At our monthly Harry Potter Discussion Group, we always come up with loads of brilliant theories and discussions centred around a particular theme in Harry Potter. I wanted to start to use some of this for my blog posts, because it’s always super interesting and I rarely share them!

Muggle Musings started in February of this year, and since then there have been so many brilliant insights and anecdotes I never would have thought of myself. I’ve already done a little highlights post about some of our more outrageous claims but I wanted to be more focused and show just how deep we delve into the books themselves!
