The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle

I went in to this book not quite knowing what to expect. It's a contemporary but the blurb and even the prologue gave me these otherworldly feels, for a bit I even thought it was hinting at a dystopian novel but what it actually is, I can't put in to words.

Daughters unto Devils by Amy Lukavics

I am not a horror fan. I looked at this book and was like, nope, I bet I don't like this. It's terrible of me, but I put off reading this book for as much as I could, pushing it further and further down my to-read list when suddenly, I just mentally slapped myself around the head and thought what would Shia Lebeouf say?

Oreo Truffles with a Geeky Halloween Twist

Last Halloween I had a post over on Geekocracy showing my mad baking skills. Did I say mad? I meant bad. This post is very similar to the truffle post I released on Christmas to make easy peasy Oreo truffles with next to no effort and they will look awesome. This post was first featured on Geekocracy on the 19th of October 2014.

Othergirl by Nicole Burstein

This will be the first book review under my new book rating system, and I'm not going to lie: I'm excited.

Readathon Warm Up: Planning Ahead

This October will only be the second time I take part in Dewey's Read-a-Thon and for any other newbies out there that haven't participated before it can sound amazing but scary at the same time. 24 hours to read books? Awesome, I'll read ALL the books - but when will I sleep? You find yourself asking all the real questions about how to manage your time and what your number of books will be by the end. Here are some little tips I learned last time around when thinking about the REAL questions.

8 Geeky Pet Costumes for Halloween

Nerdette At Large
For Halloween last year I did a fun little guest post over at Vulcan Sugar and Spice Nerdette at Large about Halloween costumes on pets so, as I've been doing previously, I'm sharing it today on my own blog to mark the one year anniversary (well almost, this was posted on October 10th 2014)! Thanks to the wonderful Gabriella for posting it.

New Book Rating System

This kind of feels like a pointless post that I'm very excited to write. It's hella nerdy, but I want an official post as a starting point (and it makes it feel 110% official) because I've decided to organise the way I rate books. This isn't going to be my most viewed post, but I feel like I need it as a reference.

TV Series: It's not too late to catch up!

This is another post I wrote this time last year for Geekocracy! I know I probably shouldn't post it because time is a major thing about this piece, and most of these TV shows have come and gone but whatever. I still want to show off my accomplishments and if you haven't gotten around to watching any of these shows then a little note from me: get on that. First featured on Geekocracy at the beginning of October last year.
