  • 21 Fantasy Reads to Share With Your Children
    Posted on: Thursday, September 06, 2018

    When I had kids, one of the things I looked forward to was being able to share the things I love with them. As an 80’s/90’s kid I got excited when they rebooted My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved when my kids were old enough to start watching the Harry Potter movies, when they got obsessed with slime (Gak if you kick it old school), and I am still working on turning them into comic book nerds.

    It was recently announced that there will be a prequel TV series for the Lord of the Rings. Some people are saying that this is going to be the next cult TV sensation. We all know that Tolkien helped pioneer the fantasy genre, but when it comes to TV, Game of Thrones is the original. With the final season airing in 2019 and then spin-off series already in the works, it is highly unlikely anyone can compete with the juggernaut that is Game of Thrones. What do you think? Is the Lord of the Rings fandom big enough to make the new series an instant success or do you think that Game of Thrones is unstoppable? No matter which side you fall on, we all have a long wait before either show puts out new content.

  • Gay Pride Flag
    Posted on: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

    On June 28, 1969, members of the LGBT community rioted after police raided a gay bar called Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn Riots proved to be a turning point in the LGBT civil rights movement. In celebration and memory of this momentous event in America, Pride Month now takes place in June. During this month, cities all over the nation host parades, marches, rallies, festivals, and other events to promote respect, equality, and pride for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. In honor of Pride month, and to help spread inclusiveness and representation I have created a list of some adult and YA science fiction and fantasy books that feature or focus on characters that are LGBTQ+.

    In February a lot of libraries do book displays called “Blind date with a book.” The displays feature library books wrapped in paper so that you can’t tell what the book is. Sometimes they will give you a few hints to the content in the book and sometimes they let you go into it completely blind. Obviously there is no (easy) way for me to do this in my blog. So I’ve figured out a different solution.

    It’s the end of the year so “Best of” lists are running rampant on the internet. I’m normally the type of person to buck the trend, but I think this one is actually useful. I figured this would be a good opportunity to highlight some of the best Fantasy books that have come out within the last year that some people might have missed out on.

    Here are a few of the best of the best:
