Review: You're never weird on the internet ( almost ) by Felicia Day

So I already told you that one of my favourtie actresses from Supernatural is Felicia Day. After Jensen she was the person that I was most excited for to meet on JIBcon. So when I found out that she wrote a book I didn't hesitate and pre-ordered the book! I just had to read it and to be honest I'm not a big memoire reader.

Last friday I recieved the message that the book would be delivered and time went so slow at work! I knew I needeld to finish another book first but I didn't mind. That night I finished it and the next day I promised myself I would start reading Felicia's book. And I can tell you I finished it in two days! Okay it isn't  a book with 500 pages but the weekends are mostly filled with playing with the kids.

I just couldn't put this book down, it read like a novel and it made me laugh so many times. But I also had to shed a tear a couple of times. This book is just so good, it gives you insight into Felicia's life. How she was homeschooled, how she started writing the Guild and how she became an Internet sensation.

The book is filled with funny quotes, photographs and great stories. Most of it is very funny and I can't help but feel a little sad for myself that I didn't have a friend like Felicia growing up. The book also tells a little more about the fact that she struggled with depression and the aftermath of gamergate. I didn't even know what excactly happened at that time and Felica tells it all from her perspective.

After reading the book I just wanted to book a flight to America, go to one of het booksignings and tell her how much of an inspiration she is to me. How after reading this book I realised that if I really wanted to write my own book I just had to start. I have to sit myself down and make it happen, because nobody else is going to do it for me.

I don't think she's going to read this post but if she does: Felica thank you for writing this book and sharing your story! You're a true inspiration.

So what are you waiting for, get your hands on this wonderful book and read it!

Harry Potter....

If there's one thing besides Supernatural that I absolutely love it's Harry Potter. I loved the books, loved the movies and love buying this that are Harry Potter related.

I didn't love Harry Potter right away, I decided that I didn't want to join all the readers and just ignore the books. Until the owner of the bookstore I visited nearly every week told me that she was sure that I would love the book. So I decided to listen to her and buy the book. Well after I finished it I was glad that I could buy the second book right away.

And after those two books the long waiting began, waiting for the next book to come out. I would get the book as christmas present. Every christmas I locked myself in my bedroom and wouldn't come out until I read the book. I kept this up until the last book, I went to a midnight sale in our local library. I had the best night of my life! Surrounded by all those other Harry Potter lovers.

The last movie I decided to do the same thing I went to a marathon of the two last movies. So before midnight they showed the Harry Potter and the deathly hollows part 1. After a short break they showed Harry Potter and the deathly hollows part 2. I had so much fun, cheering and laughing and of course crying with all the other fans. After the movie was done I felt hollow because it was the end, there wouldn't be any more movies or  books.

So to fill that void I decided to just re-read the books on a regular basis and just last week I got my own wand. My favourite character is Luna Lovegood, I just love her! So I decided to buy her wand and I'm just so in love with it! Also as I'm a ravenclaw I decided to wear my house pride and get a necklace. So I just keep my Harry Potter love alive with these little things.

Hopefully I will travel to London next year and do the Harry Potter tour!!
