Ever wonder which Hogwarts house your favorite X-Men characters would have been sorted into? Screen Rant has you covered. While I don’t 100% agree with the sorting (Jubilee in Gryffindor? Nah.), it’s a fun read.

I discovered Chelsea Palmer’s YouTube channel a couple of months ago, and since then she has easily become one of my favorite booktubers. She reviews a wide variety of literature, from YA to adult to romance, and also does quite a few subscription box unboxings. She also lets her adorable goat choose a part of her TBR every month! If you haven’t already subscribed to her channel, you’re definitely missing out!

DC Comics, who previously released several YA novelizations of some of their popular characters, such as Sarah J. Maas’s Catwoman: Soulstealer, is consolidating all of their imprints and will be releasing several graphic novels meant for their young adult and middle-grade audiences. [CBR.com]
While I was reading the above article at CBR.com, I saw a link to some news that made me very excited. The current run of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, written by Mark Waid, is being canceled with the upcoming 20th issue. Doctor Strange is my favorite Marvel character, and I am not a fan of Mark Waid’s writing. It’s rare that a writer can make me stop reading one of my favorite characters, but Waid managed to do just that. I’m really hoping that they give the next run of Doctor Strange over to someone who will do the character more justice. Also, what the hell have they done to his costume? This is terrible: [CBR.com]
If you need to spruce up your backyard, Amazon is now selling garden domes. You’ll spend a pretty penny on one, $1199 to be exact, but they look so cozy. If I lived in an actual house with a yard instead of a cookie-cutter apartment building, I think I would start saving up for one. [Apartment Therapy]
I’m absolutely in love with these psychedelic cityscapes by artist Eunjeong Choi. [Hi-Fructose]

What was your opinion of the film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit? I wasn’t a huge fan, especially since I have no idea why they felt the need to stretch it into three long films. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
