Culture Creature - Harry Potter, Altered Carbon, Monstress, Love Nikki, Black Panther

Here's a look at what I've been reading, watching, playing, looking forward to and wanting lately.



  1. I've been working my way through the Harry Potter series again, but this time in audio book format. I look forward to my commutes so much more now. Currently, I'm listening to the fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
  2. We started watching Netflix's Altered Carbon and I am hooked. I love the character, Poe. He's my far. Mr. LL isn't as into it as I am, so I have to watch it when he doesn't want to watch TV with me.
  3. My best friend gave me Monstress Volume One as a gift and I have been wanting to check out this comic book series. I haven't gotten to it yet, but I'm excited to read it.
  4. I've been slightly – or rather, totally – addicted to this mobile game, Love Nikki: Dress Up Queen. I have so many items in my wardrobe now that I'm overwhelmed sometimes.
  5. I love this etsy find and I need it in my house. (affiliate)
  6. We haven't had a chance to go to a movie since Lazy Baby was born, but I really want to try to make it out to see Black Panther in theaters. I'm like the only person in my friend group who hasn't seen it yet.

Get geared up for International Tabletop Day!

International Tabletop Top Day is this Saturday (April 30)! Are you ready to "play more games"? Here's some gear to help you get your game on!

  1. While the functionality of this D20 ring is beyond my grasp having never used it, but I wants it. (ThinkGeek)
  2. Need a shirt for game night? Why not this fun number? (welovefine)
  3. It's always helpful to have a map! This Faerun D&D map scarf is both fashionable and helpful. (welovefine)
  4. I am in love with this hand-made dice tower! (etsy)
  5. Snacks for game night? How about a chocolate D20? (etsy)
