Although a majority of our writing focuses on comics, television, and film, the fandom that is nearest and dearest to my heart is Middle-earth. Today, we celebrate what is widely known as Hobbit Day, called such because it is the birthday for Tolkien’s two most famous protagonists: Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. If you’re secretly a Hobbit, or just really really really wish that Middle-earth was real, here’s a few ways to celebrate your favorite Bagginses in style. 

Toward the end of the school year, I usually begin to stockpile books that I want to read on the beach, poolside, or in the car during summer break. I already read a ton of fanfic on a daily basis, but sometimes I still like to sit down with a good book that isn’t on AO3 and read what the masses are reading. Here is my list of summer books to check out. Let me know what you’re reading in the comments below!

Him by Sandra Bowen


This male/male romance set in hockey camp is on the top of my to-read list, for obvious reasons. Recced to me by friend of the blog L. Scott, I have been meaning to read this but for ages but never got around to picking up. There is also a part two titled Us, which I plan on ordering at the same time because I’m sure I’ll gobble them both up fairly quickly.
