Podcast have been a life changer. Literally! Especially in my fandom life. In Thursday's Pod I will spotlight some of my favorite podcasts and also make sure I send them emails, tweets and post Itunes Reviews.
Fangirls Going Rogue has a special place in my heart because these ladies are the type of female fan community I have been searching for.
I was very fortunate to not meet a lot of obstacles in my early fangirl years like young women do today. FGR is a safe haven for fangirls of all ages Their discussions range from the current hot topics in the Star Wars universe to character discussions and the have had some fantastic guests.
Tricia, Teresa & Sarah bring a great dynamic element to their discussions, they don't always agree but they debate amicably. There is nothing better then listening to a group that you can relate to as a fan and a woman. So Check them out today!
Besides the website above the ladies have a twitter account: @FGGoingRogue and an Instagram account helmed by Sandra Choute

This was a fun romp and, a love letter to libraries. Kyle Keeley is not having a good week. He is grounded, and then he finds out about an essay contest to win a night in the towns fantastic new library. A contest he didn't enter.
He wouldn't care that much if it wasn't for he contest being judged by his favorite game designer Mr. Lemoncello. So Kyle hastily pens an essay and throws it in the contest.
Suprisingly Kyle is picked! he and several contestants must complete a series of bookish themed challanges overnight to escape the library for fantastic prizes.
Kyle is a lot of fun and his friends all have quirky personalities that give the story a lot a twists and turns.There is also some great rivals for his team to play against. I loved the literary refrences in the story as well, Mr. Lemoncello throws lots of literary refrences that are fun for avid readers.
The female characters in this book are also stellar.They are smart and quirky and the boys treat them as equals.
A great start to a series I will be following. I also love that there is a list of all the books and magazines listed in the back of the book so readers can add them to their TBR pile.
