Welcome to Funko Friday! We’re going to take a look at some Funko Pops and books on Instagram this week. The topic is magic and independent women who kick ass. I love all these Pops but for different reasons: some are thieves, others are adorable, others are just deadly. But all of them have something in common: they’re adorable! How can we say no to a Pop? Since my Pops acompany me while reading books, I chose books related to them. Take a look at the pictures and think for a while why I chose that book for that Pop. Then, read my reasons. Did you get it right?
Percival is not what he seems. After watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them I was bugged with him. He wasn’t exactly him, but someone else who tried to steal magic (the suitcase). Hence, Percival’s best book companion is Thief’s Magic [The Book Depository]! Although the book isn’t as simple as that, I think that Percival would have a heart attack with it.
Ellen Ripley is the perfect companion for a book about feminism: Dreamers of a New Day: Women Who Invented the Twentieth Century [The Book Depository]. I think it fits, since Ripley is a badass character. All the women that appear in Dreamers of a New Day are strong. They lived in difficult times and paved the road for all of us. It’s a wonderful history book that lets us discover some women and what they did for everyone.
What can I say about Alice that you don’t know? This is one of my favorite characters ever! She represents curiosity and to go beyond reality. Hence, my book choice: All the Feels: All is Fair in Love and Fandom [The Book Depository]. This is a book about fandoms, fangirling, fan fiction and love. If you’re a fangirl, you’re going to see yourself reflected into it. Have you written fan fiction? Have you been completely mad about a character? It’s a funny book where you can explore fandom from the inside out.
Funko also has Rock Candy figurines. This female Thor is just amazing. She is one of my favorite Rock Candy figurines at the moment. She makes us question what a Superhero might be, just because we are too used to see Thor as a man. Hence, my bookish choice: What is a Superhero? [The Book Depository]. In this book you’ll find what a Superhero is from different points of view. If you love comics and Superheroes, I’m sure you’ll love what this book has to say about them.
As you know, I’m not so much into DC. But there are some characters that I do love. One of them is Batgirl. She is very dynamic and the comics are fun. I thought that she is a good companion for The Supergirls: Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines [The Book Depository]. In this book you’ll find a list of female Superheroes along with their history. Female Superheroes haven’t been always portrayed in the same way. You would be amazed on the variety and their portrayals!
And, finally, we get Maleficent! She is one of the best villains ever. I just saw that The Lie Tree [The Book Depository] was the perfect match. First, because of the cover colors. And, second, because of the fantasy in the book. You have to solve a mystery with the help of the fruits of a tree. It’s both amazing and a little bit spooky. (Every time I eat apples I think about it).
