Its August again and that means another year has come and gone. We are 3 years old!
This past year has been huge. We saw the move from blogger to WordPress, we saw co-blogger Jenny say her goodbye to blogging, and the introduction of new co-blogger Jennzah. We even saw me finally drag Laura onto our little stage to become my partner in crime in this little endeavor. We got a new look and some new content too! It’s been busy, and I haven’t been around as much as I wanted to, but that’s how it goes. Changes happen.
So now Jennzah, Laura and I want to thank you all for following us this year, and talk a little about our favorites since last August! Each of us will write our own post, followed by our own giveaway. That’s 3 prizes from 3 bloggers!
My Top 5s of the Year:
Captain America: Civil War- yeah, this movie rocked and it rocked hard. My fiancée and I were on opposite teams and we had a blast.
XMen Apocalypse- Yaaaaaas more Michael Fassbender. Gimme gimme gimme.
Deadpool- ok last comic movie, I promise. But really, can you really say no to that foul mouthed beauty? Nope.
Big Fat Greek Wedding 2- my guilty pleasure and a whole lot of fun.
Zootopia- Yep, I did it. I love this movie for reasons I can’t even explain. It’s just awesome.
I’m going with specific songs here but be warned, I listen to a lot of hard rock so don’t expect pop music.
Anthrax- Breathing Lightning: one of my fiancee’s favorite songs of all time and one of mine as well. The best is just killer.
Disturbed- Sound of Silence: Guys if you haven’t heard this version you need to run over to YouTube and listen to it immediately. Your ears will thank you. Which is weird because I usually hate covers.
Disturbed- Vengeful One: this was a great year for me and Disturbed. We got a lot of really good music from them.
Shinedown- Asking For It: Another beat I got really addicted to.
I Prevail- Scars: Um yeah I feel this song pretty deeply. We got addicted to it almost immediately.
Queen of Shadows- Maas will always win me every time she releases a book. No questions.
Six of Crows- see my comment above about Maas and you can apply it to Bardugo too.
A Study in Charlotte- I cannot say enough good things about that book, folks. For a Sherlock but like myself that was absolute gold.
Mirror King- I marathoned that whole series in a week, novellas included. I still can’t even.
Inquisition- The sequel to Taran Matharu’s The Summoner, I’d been anxiously awaiting the sequel for ages. When I got it I couldn’t put it down.
So those are my top 5s. Now to the giveaway.
My prize will be a box of 8 mystery arcs that I’ve been saving, 3 of which will be 2016 releases. The others are from 2014 and 2015, the years that I’ve been an active blogger. The winner will also receive several special goodies from me including swag.
