I have a 1 Month Free Marvel Unlimited Subscription for a lucky person! If you love Marvel Comics, you might love this subscription. I’m a subscriber of Marvel Unlimited. You can read as many comics as you want. However, the subscription doesn’t include the latest titles. These come up after six months hitting the stands. But, I assure you that you have enough comics to read for a lifetime! You have access to all the classics, to all X-men, to everything Marvel! The subscription only costs 9.99USD a month, so I think that the deal is pretty good.
So, what to do to get this free month? Easy! Follow me on my social media, share all about this post and do it right now! I’ll announce the winner this Sunday!
So, it happened with J.K.Rowling’s Wizarding World Loot Crate unboxing! I made a video! It took me three days of wait until I could open my box and prepare myself to talk in front of a camera. This box came quite late since Loot Crate came up with some problems getting all the items. As I understood, we had to choose our House, and they would send us times from our House. However, items came mixed. To my delight, I got a tee from Slytherin. It seems that they’ll be sending a House-themed box next time. I hope they do since I was expecting that from this box.
When I was sorted in Pottermore, I got Ravenclaw. Then I tried again, and I got into Slytherin. So, I suppose I must be a mix of them: Raverin. Although I end up rooting for Slytherin, I have to confess that I do have Ravenclaw traits. Besides, I love Luna as well!
This past week I’ve been watching Outlander (Amazon). Although I’m not into romance, the time traveling aspect of the show seems enough to give it a try. I found the show on Amazon Prime, and so far it’s a jewe. Claire travels back in time in Scotland when she is traveling with her husband after WWII. When she touches ancient stones, she is thrown back to the 18th century in middle of the concoction of a war: English against Scotts. She ends up saved and prisoner among the Scottish.
Claire is a woman of the 20th century: a nurse that served in the War, a smart and independent woman. When she sees Jamie wounded, she cures him making her valuable. Although the Scotts think that she’s an English spy at the beginning, she ends up earning their trust after a long time.
Welcome to Harry Potter Book Night: the Professors of Hogwarts! Last year we played games related to Harry Potter, and so we’ll do the same this year! But the games are different, of course. You’ll find part of the fun on this post, and the rest of my Social Media. All Professors have something cool surrounding them. However, my favorite is Severus Snape. Who is your favorite Professor?
Prepare yourself for a night of magic! This post is going to be long and mysterious. I’m not going to write the answers to all the questions today. You’ll need to wait for a day so that people can have fun first! Besides, if you had all the answers at the end of the post, it wouldn’t be that fun, would it?

Although I’m not a huge fan of Archie, I have read some comics and quite enjoyed it. So, I decided to watch Riverdale on Netflix. This version of Riverdale is much darker than the ones I’ve read in the comics. In fact, I find it more interesting. We all know coming-of-age stories that thrill us, but this time this show has the potential to be something else. Based on the comics, it can showcase Riverdale from another angle. Plus, it can be a mirror for diversity.
Riverdale can become a huge hit. However, there is a little bit of polemics out there on the web. For example, the will for Jughead to be asexual. Whatever happens, the potential for greatness is there. You can feel it in the first episode: lovely made. And the colors are just perfect.
[SPOILERS ahead! There are spoilers about the first episode. So, if you want to be surprised by the show: stop reading right here. If you don’t mind spoilers, keep reading please.]
Fantasy and YA book subscription boxes available in the UK are rare. Most cool subscription book boxes are in the US. This translates to high shipping costs. However, there are some subscriptions that are out there and have cool swag for you.
Some of the book subscription boxes that were available in the UK have disappeared. Fortunately, the ones remaining are amazing. However, to find the available subscriptions from the UK was a little bit of a pain. So, I decided to list the boxes that I discovered that tune with my geeky tastes.
I recently subscribed to the Fairy Loot. Geeky goodies accompany the star book that comes in a bag that you can later use. It costs £26 (+ shipment, so it’s like £30). Each month there’s a different theme, and books seem to be amazing. My first box will arrive at the end of February. (Subscribing was quite a quest. I had to wait quite for a long time to get in!)
Monthly subscription or single purchase.
Bookish x Geeky swag.
£26 + Shipping.
I found another jewel on Netflix again: a show called the OA. It’s a mystery drama with science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural elements. It has some similar features to Stranger Things. So, if you liked the show, like suspense and science fiction and fantasy, you might love this show.
The central star is a woman called Prairie who comes back home after being missing for more than seven years. She was blind for most of her life, but when she comes back, she can see again. No one can explain that, nor the strange scars she has on her back. To make things spicier, she calls herself the OA. At first, it looks like another case of abduction, and neighbors and other people treat her like a weirdo.
Last week I found a great show on Netflix called Beyond. I was bored, and I ended up taking a look at new shows on Netflix. My eyes ended up on Beyond, a show that tells the story of Holden Matthews, a teen who has an accident and stays in a coma for 12 years. When he wakes up, it’s like a miracle. But he’s not a teen anymore: he’s an adult. What’s more, he also has superpowers. But, while he struggles to recover his previous life, he discovers that he is also in great danger.
Imagine that you’ve been sleeping for a long time, and when you wake up you have physically changed, and the world around you has gone wild. Computers were rare, but now people communicate using smartphones. Imagine the shock of Holden when everything he knew is gone.
It seems that my movie plan for 2017 includes far more films than last year. For starters, we have more Superhero movies and other cult movies. January began with Assassin’s Creed, a disappointing film for me. However, I do hope the rest of movies on my list will do great. So, now that we know that I already saw Assassin’s Creed let’s move to other horizons!
It seems that this movie is based on the comics “Old man Logan.” If so, I need to prepare to say goodbye to one of my favorite characters: Wolverine. The tone of the movie is somber, and the trailer is weird for a Superhero film. I’ll prepare tissues and hope that the “new Wolverine” hinted in the trailer keeps up with Logan’s flag.
We’re at that dreadful moment of the year when we have to do the planning for 2017. Let’s face it, we all start the new year with good intentions but abandon them somewhere around February. Despite the odds, I intend to follow “the plan.” Plan is a much better word than resolution. Or so it seems according to all dictionaries that I’ve checked. Planning involves a stronger commitment than the poor resolution wishes that go out from our mouths at the beginning of the year. But fear not, 2017 intends to be different, and so we shall plan accordingly.
My evil plots for world domination shall come into fruition during 2017. Oh, wait! These are the plans for the blog, not my personal most darkest desires! Excuse me, hang on a second. Oh yes, here they are!
