BFF Book Tag

And I’m back with another tag, the BFF Book Tag! Shout out to Jesse Nicholas at Books at Dawn for tagging me! The tag was originally created by Chantal at CK’s Reading Corner.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

The girls in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series: Lena, Bridget, Carmen, and Tibby. I love the strong bond they have and how supportive they are of each other.

Comics Roundup #4: A Blast Into the Past

So with plans to read more comics, I sidled into Fantom Comics, a comic bookshop in Dupont Circle, to look around. The sellers were friendly and quickly shared recommendations of what I should get. Even the customers were eager to offer some input. I’m not interested in the superhero comics so I ended up getting these. Upon cashing out, I learned a harsh truth—comics are FRIGGIN expensive!
