Friday Face-Off: Doll or Puppet

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but up-kept by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“I got no strings to hold me down”

This weeks theme: A cover featuring a doll or puppet.

My Choice: A Little Princess



There were a lot of covers for A Little Princess! Here are my least favorites:

These are my favorites:

This was a super hard decision because there were so many good covers! But I think my favorite is this one:


I don’t usually like baby pink but it works nicely with the blue.  Plus this cover captures the time period without being tacky or seeming too old.  Its very timeless.

Which cover do you like best? Let me know in the comments!!

All Good Things Must Come to an End (Giveaway)


My giveaway is ending tonight at midnight (EST).  So if you haven’t entered, you better do it quick!!

Check out my giveaway post here!!

Posting Streak

I posted for 25 days in a row and I accidentally broke my streak yesterday.  I even had a post written, I just messed up the scheduling.

I wouldn’t even be upset if I had a legitimate reason for missing a day, but I was just stupid and scheduled my post for the wrong day.

Oregon Trip

By the time this posts (assuming I can schedule it correctly) I will be on a plane.  I am heading home from visiting my Uncle in Oregon.  It was a comic book trip so it was lots of fun but lots of work.  I will write a post out about my trip in the next few days!  I got some great loot from the Comic Swap we went to !

Its been a great long weekend! I am not excited to go back to work tomorrow, but I miss my bed and my fiance (in that order) so it will be good to be home!


Lit-Cube February Reveal!

This month’s theme is:

New Orleans

When I got this box I was a little worried about how small it was (scissors for size reference)


But it was packed very full:


First up was a Praline candy thing.  I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds good.



Next was a drawstring backpack.  I own so many of these and I don’t need anymore, but I love the fabric! Its got great texture!


Next was this super awesome book-holder-opener-thingy. (Thats the technical name) Since I have gotten it I have only read hardcover books and while it works, I think it would work better with paperbacks.


Then we had some Bubble Salt.  It feels cool, but I still need to use the bath bomb I got last month.  (I don’t take a lot of baths)


Last but not least, this months book is The Feathered Bone.  I probably won’t read this.  It sounds like it will be a thriller or depressing or both.  There are too many other books I want to read that I don’t think I will get to this one.



Even though the box was small and I don’t like the book, I still liked the box.  The book-holder-opener-thingy is super cool!


I was disappointed that there wasn’t a sticker again.  This is the second box in a row that didn’t have a sticker.  The first passport themed box had a sticker and a note saying to save all the stickers because one of the boxes will contain a “passport” for you to put them all.  I really liked the idea and the collector in me was excited to have been there from the beginning so I could collect them all.

Last month when I asked for a replacement book, I also asked about the sticker and they said they were just too busy and didn’t get around to adding it.  I have been thinking of switching boxes (I love the goodies in this one but I want more YA books) but the idea of collecting all the stickers was one of the reasons I was sticking with it.  But now that they aren’t doing the stickers, maybe its time for a change?  I don’t know what to do!  I will see what next month’s box contains and then maybe make a decision?

Funko Pops!

Think Geek was having a huge sale on Funko Pops so of course I had to buy some!!

They looked so Pretty in the box!!! (There was packing material too, but I took that out first.


Here is the full Haul!  Launchpad McQuack is David’s so he won’t be in any of the rest of the pictures.

I spent so much money I got a free t-shirt!


I bought two new bombshell pops plus I already had one, so here are all of them together:


Plus for good measure, here is a pic with the Harley Quinn I own.  I think she fits in pretty well.  There is a bombshell version of her, but I don’t have it.


Finally here are all the full sized Funko Pops I own (minus my Star Wars ones):


I own some other little ones and some in the non-traditional style, but they don’t fit on this shelf.  Also I own some Star Wars ones, but they are with my Star Wars stuff!

Do you own any Funko Pops? Do you have a favorite? Or one you really want?
