What I'm Loving Now

I've been busy lately with work and house chores and sewing. I've been squeezing in some TV watching and reading when I can though.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

It took me a bit to get through this book because I kept falling asleep while reading (this happens when I read mainly before bedtime). But I finished it recently and I loved it! It was such a good introduction to Squirrel Girl and I found it very inspiring. The ending actually had me tearing up. I'm a huge fan of how they write Doreen (aka Squirrel Girl) as so chatty and sarcastic and witty. I always end up laughing out loud while reading anything with her.



While transitioning into Spring I've been finding myself wearing a lot of tanks with cardigans. That way if I get too warm while I'm ironing finished sewing projects or from cleaning out a litter box, I can cool off easily stripping down to my tank top. Well, can I just recommend the amazingness of Jordandene tanks?!?! I have a few of them now. They're incredibly soft and comfy and the length is perfect! I don't have to worry about exposing too much skin when I bend over. If you've seen me on Instagram, you've seen me sporting her tanks everywhere.

What have you been loving lately?

Comic Books

Have you ever come across a comic, manga, or novel that you cannot put down?! I love finding reading material that grabs my attention and won't let go. Even at 2 o'clock in the morning. This leads to the first comic book I'm recommending today.

"WHO IS LOTTIE PERSON? Is she a gorgeous, fun-loving social media star with a perfect life or a gross, allergy-ridden mess? Enter a world of snot, blood, and tears in this new ongoing series from New York Times Best Seller BRYAN LEE O'MALLEY (Scott Pilgrim) and dazzling newcomer LESLIE HUNG!"

I was introduced to this series from Instagram (thank you social media!) because a good chunk of the ladies I follow were sharing photos of the Snotgirl issues. I headed over to Comixology and saw there were 5 issues to read so I wasn't too far behind. Well, those 5 issues were consumed in one sitting. Well, lying in bed actually, until the wee hours of the morning because I just couldn't stop reading it. 

The art is gorgeous. I just want to re-read it to stare at the images. And the story is fun and real and also mysterious. I'm so incredibly upset that I have to wait for more issues!

Bee and Puppycat
"This quirky take on the magical girl genre comes to life with Bee, a not-so-graceful temp worker and her partner Puppycat, the sour curmudgeon who helps her pay rent. Watch these two roommates take on a variety of jobs from cleaning house to finding plants in a collection of charming shorts."

This is a series that's been around for a while. I've been adoring Bee and Puppycat cosplays at conventions for years now. I don't know why I didn't get into the series earlier but it just never topped my to-read list. That is, until I saw the trades at my local library. So of course I checked out volume 1 and fell in love with the adorable characters. The stories are definitely light and fluffy and suitable for any age. It was a fun and fast read and I'll be sure to check out the following volumes at the library. I don't know if I'd look to re-read this series but I enjoyed reading through it once.

Next up to read is Motor Crush!

Fandom Favourites

There are a handful of things I'm really excited for right now...

1. I cannot wait to see the new Power Rangers movie. I'm hoping to squeeze in a movie date with Adam next week to see it sooner rather than later. I'm trying not to have high expectations but I also can't seem to control my excitement.


2. The third season of iZombie starts soon and I'm pumped for more zombie craziness! I love the chemistry between Liv and Ravi. Their friendship is fantastic and incredibly amusing.


3. So who's seen Logan? I recently went to the theatres to see it and I absolutely loved it! It's easily my favourite X-Men-universe movie. Yes, it even beats out Deadpool for me. Logan made me laugh, cry, and scream along with characters. X-23 was perfect and I found so much joy watching her and Logan fight alongside each other. It was the perfect ending to Hugh Jackman's run as Wolverine.
