Items I Own, But, Have Yet to Utilize

This Fandom Friday post is brought to by the letter N, for (The) Nerdy Girlie, and the letter S for Super Space Chick. And by readers like you
Today's Fandom Friday is about items we own, but may not have read, watched or played...yet! I have a few books that belong in this, but it is FIVE Fandom Friday right? Also, I tried to keep the items "fandom" related (which really helped my list narrow).

1). Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell which I know many have already read. And I plan on it being next...after I finish...
2). The Magicians by Lev Grossman! I bought about 5 or 6 years ago. I had the WORST time with the first chapter. I couldn't get into it until this week. I think books and music can each occasionally have these times when they don't work for you at the time, but, one day you pick it up and read or listen, and it just clicks!!! That's this one. Seriously, I don't know why it didn't before, but it is now.
3). Witchblade the Complete Series was I remember watching on TV cause I enjoyed the premise of the comic...but felt it was not for me (I felt as though it was not geared towards me at the time). But the show?!?! So bad-a$$! I always wanted to finish the show--and now that I have it on DVD, I can--but since we bought it I haven't played it yet.
4). Lego The Hobbit we got this pretty much when we got our PS4, and I've been wanting to play this...but then I started Pokemon Omega Ruby and Assassin's Creed Unity...and it's pretty much what I want to play. (PS, if you play on 3DS, let's add each other!)
5). Blue Bunnies: Heroes vs Villains is a game we bought while hunting for Munchkin stuff at SDCC in 2013...we haven't played it yet, but we kind of need more people to play it...and not a lot of people want to learn the game with us lol.

Hope you enjoyed this Fandom Friday!

  3. I TOTALLY feel you on The Magicians. I *finally* read it this year after having tried 3 separate times and not being able to get into it. I swear it get better once you pass the 100 page mark (but it's pretty depressing). I've heard that the series ends in a really satisfying way and I'm planning on finishing it but I haven't taken the second book off of my shelf yet.

  4. Also, Killer Bunnies is SO annoying. It's fun to play but it's completely a game of luck. You can have a great strategy and be winning the entire time and then lose at the end based on one freaking card (I might still be a little sore about my loss).

  5. I started Fangirl last night, and so far, I don't like it all that much- it might just be the wrong time to read it, like the problem you had with The Magicians!

  8. Oh gosh... You have just reminded me of all of the Steam games I bought on sale which are mostly for PC... I don't have a PC (yet).... ^^;; Oh, and I have several PS4 and Xbox One games that are still in packaging.... Walk of shame, here I come!

  10. I bought Fangirl last year and have yet to read it as well! And I tried reading The Magicians, but had a really hard time getting into it. I was like, "I could be reading Harry Potter right now." :/

  11. That's EXACTLY what has happened to me each time! I finally finished chapter 1...but I got distracted by The Eye of Zoltar by Jasper Fforde.
    However, I plan on going back into it, as it is more interesting now!

  12. Me too! I like the premise, but, I kept wanting to just "Spend a day" on it (not do anything, but read it lol).

  13. LOL! You HAVE to do this prompt then! I wonder if we have games in common!

  14. Same here! Let me know when you start!
    I might ask the ladies in the Boundless book Club if we could make it one of the monthly reads. That way I have people to discuss it with.

  15. Dude, I have some more to recommend when your done! ;)

  16. I firmly believe this can be the case!
    It's not a bad thing. You're not bad for not feeling it, and the books not bad for that reason...sometimes, it's just the right book, wrong time.

  17. This is good to know! I will be on the lookout for this. I need to be prepared NOT to tip the table LOL

  18. That's the other reason I want to finish it too! I've seen the sequels in the store in the "collector" in me wants to finish the set! But really the premise is one I like.
    I think it was the whole: surly young man wants his best friend's (/rival's) girl friend to be his that kept putting me off. IDK, but that stuff kind of gets to me...especially that early in the book where IDK if he's a good guy...cause it reads like he's...IDK...entitled? But, I hope that changes.

  19. You'll have loads of people to discuss it with ya! I would say it's the best of all of RR's books. :)
