The Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway | April 2016

*Stereotypical Movie Announcer Voice* In a world… where super heroes collide… we bring you…

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN – the giveaway box.

It’s time for another Golden Snitch – the monthly giveaway box full of geek goodies that opens at the close. This month, we’re all pretty stoked about the Batman vs Superman movie that recently hit theaters (no spoilers, please!) and wanted to offer up some pretty heroic prizes. But before we get into the giveaway and its contents, won’t you please take a moment to get to know me and the other sponsors?

April Golden Snitch Sponsors

I’d Like to Introduce You To…

Since the new Batman VS Superman movie recently came out in theaters, I thought it would be fun for my sponsors and I to shed some light on what side we’re on. Spoilers: There seem to be a lot of Batman lovin’ ladies in this group!

Batman vs Superman Favorite and why

 KIMI | Kimi Who?
I enjoy Batman’s sense of responsibility to his city. He could have anything he wanted – including hiring someone to fight the bad guys for him. But no… he takes it upon himself to do the dirty work of protecting the city and people he loves. Batman Forever! #sopunny

 
LIANA | Art Prints by Liana
Batman, of course! He has the superpower of unparalleled resilience and restraint of ethical justice and mad martial art skills. Also he’s a super attractive playboy whom no one would expect is the dark knight vigilante. (It probably helps that he’s also my all time favorite comic book character.)

 
LAURA | Con Couture
They were both awesome in the movie and fighting for what they believed was right. Each perceived the other as the threat, when in reality they needed to work together. Oh, how I love when things get kumbaya. :) So, I’m going to be that person that can’t pick one and say that I just love them both!

 
HANNAH & SARA | The Perfect Storm BFFs
Batman because he’s just a fairly normal guy who wants to help people and try to make Gotham a better place. He’s trained super hard and uses his gadgets to make that happen. Plus, Batman has the BEST villains!

 
TISH | The Veganista Foodie
I’ll have to side with Superman. I love superheroes that have cool super powers. I also appreciate the sense of responsibility he has in helping a planet that isn’t even his own.

 
JENN | The Diary of a Dreamer
Batman. He’s just a mortal man trying to protect his city.

 
KATY | Plays Well With Coffee
Batman will always be my favorite. Why? Because he’s just a man who wants to take the crime out of Gotham city. But also – that suit and cape – yum!

 
DANIELLE | From Girlie to Nerdy
BATMAN! I’ll admit, I’ve never liked Superman. I always thought he was kind of lame (sorry, folks). Batman on the other hand has always been my favorite. Although he doesn’t have any true superhero powers, he’s smart, creative, and a little dark. Win-win for me!

 
ASHLEE | Her Geekery
Batman forever! I’ve always liked that he’s a real guy (albeit, a ridiculously weathy one) who uses his strength and intelligence to save the day. No superpowers required, thank you very much! But let’s be real, between Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, it’s Cavill all the way<3

 
JESSICA | The Nifty Nerd
Both these guys aren’t necessarily my favorite, but if I were to pick the winning side it’d be Superman. To keep this succinct- Realistically Superman’s true strength in power greatly outweighs Batman. He could stay a hundred yards away from Batman and just melt him with his heat vision or freeze him with his freeze breath. He wouldn’t even need to get close enough for Batman to use some “trick” like kryptonite.

 
DARCIE | Homemaker Vs The World
It’s actually really hard for me to choose between Batman and Superman. In the end, I’d have to choose Team Batman. I think Superman has a bit of an unfair advantage by having the powers to do just about anything, including turning back time. Batman has to use his brain and gadgets to get himself out of situations. I’m also more partial to Batman’s backstory. He chooses to do what he does because of what happened to his parents. In the end, while his methods may be a little darker than other super hero’s, he does what he does so others don’t have to go through what he went through when he lost his parents.

 
KATIE | KatsyXO
Batman all the way. Superman has always been too cheesy for me, and I’m pretty sure rich boy Wayne wouldn’t have a problem getting his hands on some kryptonite.

 
HEATHER | The Nerdy Fox
Batman…. because I’m not a fan of Superman. Haha. No, I just like Batman more out of the two.

 
ANGIE | My So-Called Chaos
BATMAN! I just like Batman better honestly…

The Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway Sponsors March 2016 

I’d Like to Introduce You To…

This month, I asked my sponsors a horrible question. Shame on me for this… because I know the question was difficult and not fair to ask my fellow book lovers! Ha!

March Golden Snitch Question
 
KIMI | Kimi Who?
I love dystopian society based books and that’s why I could probably read the Divergent series again and again. I fell in love with it when the book first came out – long before it was a thing. It’s really stuck with me. I greatly enjoyed he character development, twists and turns. It seems like every time I re-read the books, I find something new.

 
MICHELLE | Geeked Out Girl
I would have to say Star Wars. With the new movies forthcoming, there will be a lot of new canon material to keep me going for a long time.

 
LAURA | Con Couture
We just saw the Goosebumps movie so I am going to say the original Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine. We still have a bunch of them and wish we had the time to go back and read them all as adults. Not only are they entertaining, but they bring back so many wonderful memories of our childhoods when we thought Goosebumps was the bees knees!

 
CHRISTINA | Cali Darling
I’d honestly have to say the Twilight Saga. I watched the first movie and then bought all the books. I read all the books in almost a week and enjoyed it so much.

 
JENN | The Diary of a Dreamer
Probably Harry Potter. It’s my favorite series to read and I try to re-read it every 1-2 years

 
HEATHER | The Nerdy Fox
The Old Kingdom books by Garth Nix. Sabriel has been my all time favorite book for so long. I think they’re what really got me back into reading when I was younger. They I have the audio books, variant covers of the books, I’ve read it so many times that I could probably copy it down from memory. I love them so much.

 
ANGIE | My So-Called Chaos
Well that would certainly suck… LOL maybe Harry Potter? At least you would continually be entertained, and hopefully she writes some more so it’ll be longer. lol

 
LIANA | Liana Kangas Art
That’s a pretty tough question, but right now I’m pretty obsessed with nerd autobiographies, I’ve been re-reading Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg, and just finished You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day (totally relatable!) Because of that I finally picked up The Nerdist Way by Chris Hardwick… I know it’s not a series but I just couldn’t help myself. (But if I had to pick, it’d be Harry Potter…)

 
DANIELLE | From Girlie to Nerdy
The Harry Potter series because it’s full of all of my favorite things – magic, love, friendship, adventure, danger…it’s basically my absolute favorite series and I have no problem reading it over and over again.

 
JESSICA D. | Two Married Geeks
If I could only read one book series for the rest of my life, it would have to be Harry Potter. I can read that series over and over and it never gets old.

 
JESSICA P. | The Nifty Nerd
This is quite the unfair question for a book lover…If I could only read one book series for the rest of my life, I’d probably have to choose Lord of the Rings. Not only is it my biggest fandom, but the lore of Middle Earth is so vast & rich; I wouldn’t mind getting lost/stuck there for the rest of my life.

 
MER | Queering Through Life
It would have to be any of Tamora Pierce‘s works based in Tortall. I’ve always felt I was born in the wrong century, and while her books are based in a fictional world, it takes me to a place that makes sense in my head. Sure, there was no technology in those times, but people really worked for what they had. They appreciated what they had. Everything was built and made by hand rather than machine. It was a more simple time. And hey, she always has female main characters which really makes the series amazing and absolutely enthralling. It plays to my whimsical fantasies of the possibly realistic supernatural while also maintaining to be placed in an understandable history. I would have no problem reading about Tortall until the end of my days.

 
ASHLEY | Hello Nature
Harry Potter! There are SO many reasons why, but one of the biggest reasons? It’s actually something I connected with my Grandma over. She’s a huge Harry Potter fan and the fact that we got to go with her to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter a few years ago just makes these books seem even more special.

 
NICHOLE | Cuppa Geek
Laurell K Hamilton. The Anita Blake series. One of the first supernatural book series I fell in love with.

The Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway - Sponsors - February 2016

Say Hello To…

Since the new Deadpool movie comes out this month, I wanted to find out what everyone’s favorite Marvel Universe character was. There are so many to choose from and my sponsors didn’t disappoint with their answers. I love what a diverse list of answers I received!

 
KIMI | Kimi Who?
I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to answer this question until I had to think of my own answer. Oops! I know that there are some obvious answers – one of them for me would be Iron Man, because I’ve always thought he was the kind of bad boy you could still bring home to your parents. But lately, I’m really feeling Kilgrave from Jessica Jones. Okay fine, it helps that he’s played by David Tennant… but I just honestly think he’s an interesting and complex character that I want to learn more about.

 
MICHELLE | Geeked Out Girl
This is a difficult one for me. I have different faves depending on the mood I’m in. However, I guess I would say Captain America has always been at the top of my list. He best represents who I am as a person and the values I hold dear.

 
LAURA | Con Couture
My husband’s is definitely Captain America because he’s an all around good guy and American hero. Mine would be the Xmen. If I had to narrow it down to 1 (which is hard,) I would probably choose Magneto. He has awesome power and I like complex characters that vacillate between good, evil, and somewhere in between.

 
CHRISTINA | Cali Darling
I’m not too into Marvel Universe but I would have to say Spiderman. I loved all the Spiderman movies though.

 
JENN | The Diary of a Dreamer
It’s either Deadpool of Captain America. I like Deadpool’s sense of humor and how he isn’t censored, but I like what Captain America stands for (since I was a service member)

 
HEATHER | The Nerdy Fox
This is such a hard question. I’ve always been a fan of Marvel so it really depends on my mood and what version we’re talking about. I love the Guardians of the Galaxy movie (and adore Rocket Raccoon and Groot) but if we’re talking comic books it’s a whole different story. I love X-Men, especially Nightcrawler. I mean, he teleports by opening a portal to another dimension. He’s pretty freaking rad. Don’t even get me started on the bad guys. HELLO LOKI ANYONE?! I am in love with movie Loki. Basically, what I am saying is that I am a huge Marvel fan and always have been, it’s hard for me to choose just one that I love more than the others.

 
ANGIE | My So-Called Chaos
A few months ago I would have told you it was Wolverine, or Storm… I loved X-Men growing up and used to watch all the cartoons. However, thanks to Netflix, I’m completely enamored with Jessica Jones. Well and her hunky hunk Luke. Meow.

 
ASHLEE | Her Geekery
I’ve always had a soft spot for Spider-Man. I think I connected so strongly with him because us geeky kids have to stick together =P Now if only we could get a good Spider-Man movie, I’d be one happy gal!

 
DANIELLE | From Girlie to Nerdy
Black Widow – she can hold her own with the guys and she can kick some serious butt!

 
JESSICA | Two Married Geeks
My favorite Marvel character is Hawkeye because he doesn’t need superpowers to be the world’s greatest marksman! A close second is Ms. Marvel, because my daughter’s name is Marvel.

 
VANESSA | 2 Dorks in Love
I have become amused by wisecracking Deadpool. It’s great to have a character that can break the 4th wall i.e. knows he’s in a comic and talks to the audience. Plus hey – tacos and chimichangas!

 
LIANA | Liana Art & Illustration
Originally, I’d have picked Spiderman (now you’re saying, which one Liana?!) but after working at a comic shop I got to divulge in the world of Peter Quill (Star-Lord) and the space cowboy that he is! I love the Guardians of the Galaxy movie as well, and the Kitty Pride/Peter Quill fandom that comes with the comics. :)

 
JESSICA | The Nifty Nerd
Who’s my favorite Marvel Universe character? Choosing 1 to highlight, I’d have to say Iron Man. Known as many things – genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist – Iron Man uses his wealth to help fund the Avengers to improve the world around him. He’s also always tinkering; always working on improving his technology and never settling for what he’s already accomplished.

 
KAYLY | My Open Sketchbook
SO HARD TO PICK JUST ONE. For now, I’ll say Vision. How he must view humans with all his knowledge endlessly fascinates me.

 
TISH | The Veganista Foodie
My favorite Marvel character is Storm. I’m a big fan of the X-Men. Storm has awesome abilities and she’s bad ass.

 
DARCIE | Homemaker Vs The World
While I am a huge fan of many Marvel characters, I think Deadpool ranks at the top of my list. I love both the comedic relief of the character and that he breaks the fourth wall. While Deadpool comics may be more on the dark side, I still really enjoy them!

 
JESSICA | Jessica Takes On The World
Thor, because I am a fan of Chris Hemsworth ;)

I have rounded up some amazing geek-inspired bloggers to introduce you to today.

I’m so excited for you to meet them and hopefully get to know them better as well!

The Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway January 2016 Sponsors

Say Hello To…

Time to meet your lovely giveaway sponsors! It being a new year and all, I asked the ladies a special question: What is one fandom you’d like to learn more about in 2016? These were their answers…

KIMI | Kimi Who?
It might sound a little cliche right now, but I’d like to learn more about Star Wars. Seeing the new movie has really piqued my interest and I’ve found myself bugging my boyfriend with so many questions! I’m greatly enjoying learning about the Star Wars universe and old canon vs. new!

 
ANGIE | My So-Called Chaos
I think maybe the outlander fandom. I read the first book and really liked it, but have gotten stuck trying to read the second and people are obsessed with the whole series.

 
JENN | The Diary of a Dreamer
One fandom I’d like to learn more about this year? That is a really difficult question. Hmmm…. Either Batman (like Harley Quinn) or maybe Star Wars (I haven’t watched the movies since 1-3 were in theaters) or Doctor Who (maybe pre-Christopher Eccleson).

 
HEATHER | The Nerdy Fox
The one fandom I’d like to learn more about in 2016 is Sherlock. I haven’t been able to really get into it even though I know if I sat down and watched it, I’d be in love.

 
CHRISTINA | Cali Darling
One fandom I’d like to learn more about in 2016 would have to be the Divergent series. I’ve seen the first one and definitely want to see the second one. I’d also like to read the books as well. I feel like Divergent would fit well into my current favorite fandoms of Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games!

 
MANDY | The True Ultimate Fangirl Officially
One fandom I’d like to learn more about in 2016 is Deadpool. I already love all the trailers I’ve seen for the new movie, plus all I’ve heard about him as a character, because I’m a foul-mouthed, vulgar, twisted-sensed-of-humor kind of gal myself, and to find a character that is along those same lines is just freakin’ fantastic! I can’t wait to start buying comics and I just recently purchased my outfit for when I go and see the movie, so I’m psyched! There’s nothing better than getting to be a geeky fashionista while learning about the “Merc With a Mouth”.

 
ASHLEE | Her Geekery
I’d love to learn more about Supernatural! I’ve heard so much about it and I’ve seen an episode here and there, but I’ve never taken the time to sit down and get into it. I’m especially intrigued by Jared Padalecki’s ‘Always Keep Fighting’ campaign, which I think is what really sparked my interest in this massive fandom!

 
STACEY | Geeks & Lattes
The Once Upon A Time fandom. I abandoned the show in S2 and now I regret it.

 
IMANI | I Puke Kawaii
Let’s go Wade Wilson. Deadpool comes outnxt month and I think more people should know him.

 
DANIELLE | From Girlie to Nerdy
I’d like to learn more about (and hopefully watch) Sailor Moon this year. I missed the boat on that show as a kid and I love that it promotes girl power and has talking cats.

 
NICHOLE | Cuppa Geek
I can’t wait to get all caught up with Doctor Who and Torchwood. The show has changed my fandom life. I can’t say I’ve ever been this crazy about a show before. Not even my horror shows. And I’m a huge horror geek. Doctor Who has everything romance, action, suspense, horror . . How could you not be obsessed?

 
LEAH | Girl Getting Geeky
I think it might actually be Harry Potter for me. I’m not a great lover of the characters. Sorry! But I am a lover of the world.

 
VANESSA | 2 Dorks in Love
We just started getting into Supernatural this month. I kept seeing raves all over my geek mom group and told my husband that I wanted to start catching up. I knew little bits…like there’s Felicia Day in there somewhere, and I know Dean likes pie, ha ha. So far it’s been great for the first season and a half!

 
KATY | Plays Well with Coffee
I would love to learn more about the Sherlock fandom! I’ve heard nothing but good things about the show, so I’m totally stoked to jump into the whole thing!

 
JESSICA | Two Married Geeks
The DC fandom. I’m more of a Marvel Gal myself.

 
KAYLY | My Open Sketchbook
For me, I think I’d enjoy learning a bit more about the Marvel universe, in terms of character origins and whatnot. As a fan of the MCU, I’d really like to learn more about the comic history, especially as there are character movies coming out this year that I’d like to see but don’t know much about (ie – Doctor Strange).

 
LIANA | Liana Art & Illustration
The Star Wars universes (canon and not canon) and the new series they’re putting out!

 
JESSICA | The Nifty Nerd
I’d like to learn more about Firefly. People seem to love the series or think it’s highly overrated. I fell in love with the movie, Serenity, when I first watched it, so I’d like to give the series (single season?) a chance!

 
MICHELLE | Geeked Out Girl
The fandom I would like to learn more about is video games. Gamers seem so passionate about everything they do- from the games they play to the system(s) that they use. I would love to find a system and a game that I am so dedicated to that I actually play it through all the way to the end.

 

Time for a Giveaway!

Now that you’ve gotten to know the ladies, let’s show you the goods! *Ahem* We mean the prizes of course.

The Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway - Star Wars + Doctor Who + Harry Potter - January 2016This month we’re giving away a prize pack valued at $125! It includes the following:
