  • 20 Years Later: My life with Harry Potter

    It’s been 20 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone was released in the UK, which means it’s been about 19 years since I first read it. I wish I could remember the exact date, but I was only 11 and I wasn’t aware how significant that moment was going to be. Even at […]


  • “Nevernight” Is a Dark and Compelling Fantasy

    A world with three suns is the setting for Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight. In this world where it is almost always daylight, Mia Corvere has her family violently ripped away from her at a young age, and she spends the next six years mercilessly training to join the Red Church – a secret group of deadly assassins.

  • Tillie Walden on Her Process, Coming Out, and Yuri on Ice

    Unless you’ve just stumbled across The Geekiary, you’ll know that we love ourselves a little Yuri on Ice.

  • The Handmaid’s Tale 1×01 Review: “Offred”

    When I first read The Handmaid’s Tale, I marveled at the mental acrobatics of the ruling class that allowed them to treat Offred and the other Handmaidens as they did. Now, watching Margaret Atwood’s novel come to life on Hulu, it feels ominously possible. - **Read our policies before commenting.** Please do not copy our content […]


  • “Rise of the Chosen” Turns the Zombie Trope Inside Out

      Rise of the Chosen is that very rare and beautiful thing: a Young Adult novel that doesn’t assume young adults only want to read about tormented romance. It’s a compelling story and a promising start to Anna Kopp’s Lifeblood series. Still, I have a fear about the adorable queer romance we’re given as Sam […]
