We promise to send you only the coolest stuff we have to offer every month. And as a thank you, we’ll give you a handful of free e-books, just to give you a taste of what Quirk is all about.
The clocks have changed, the days are dark, and there is no better time to curl up in a cozy nook with your favorite read. There is something so magical about a good book in front of a roaring fire, or in a warm and welcoming living room. The world just slips away. In some cases, you even get double the coziness when a book transports you to another warm and snuggly spot. We’ve rounded up our favorite fictional homes that are just perfect for chilly days.
Books, in and of themselves, are magical doorways. Opening a book is as simple as opening a door in the real world, but often much more rewarding! Doorways within books are something special. A character who passes through a magical doorway into a world of adventure mirrors the adventure of the reader themselves. They charm and intrigue us as readers. They tempt us into imagining that it’s possible to open an ordinary door one day and find ourselves in a real-life adventure.
November is almost at an end, and for NaNo writers that means one of two things. If things have gone to plan, you have written almost an entire book in just one month! At least fifty thousand words have flowed from your brain onto the page (or screen), your first draft is finished, and your month is ending with a glowing sense of accomplishment. High fives and champagne, you productive, high-speed writer, you!
Warning! This post contains images of books that have been recycled into crafty decorations, which some readers might find disturbing. If you can’t stand the thought of a book being torn apart for decorative purposes, you may not wish to go on.
Legends of Tomorrow enters its second season this month, and promises a sophomore outing bursting with time-travelling adventures. Most of the original team is returning, along with a whole new gang of characters from the Justice Society of America, including Hourman, Stargirl, Citizen Steel, and an all-new Vixen. They’ll be back on the Waverider, attempting to save the timeline again (and undoubtedly going up against a brand-new villain, too). It’s action-packed comic-book sci-fi and we absolutely love it!
The CW’s interconnected superhero series return this month, and with Supergirl joining Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, there are going to be more superheroes on the channel than you can shake a stick at. All four of these shows are fantastic in their own way—the gritty vigilante style of Arrow, the colorful meta-humor of The Flash, the gloriously weird sci-fi twists of Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl’s sunny feminism.
