Funko Pop! Daenerys riding Drogon: $29.99 USD

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1) by Sarah J Maas: $16.80 USD
While in isolation, pick up this 800+ page tome from Sarah J Maas. Here’s a description from Amazon:
“Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life―working hard all day and partying all night―until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose―to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion―one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.”
The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s: An Oral History: $13.99 USD (Kindle)
Maybe you want to read some non-fiction during all this mess. Maybe you rewatch The Office over and over on Netflix until it’s gone in 2021 because we can’t have nice things. Relax in bed (turn off that George Foreman grill) and read about one of the greatest sitcoms to ever exist.
Baby Yoda Plush: $16.99 USD
When the days are slow, and you’re growing tired of being stuck inside, just cuddle this cute little Baby Yoda. Yeah, I know this is technically “The Child”, but you know what? Not one person calls him that. This is Baby Yoda, and that’s that.
Rick And Morty Portal Heat Reactive Coffee Mug: $18.95 USD
You could be fortunate enough to be working from home. And having an awesome mug like this one can make your remote work a little less dismal. If you’re somehow still stuck in a useless meeting, imagine yourself following Rick and Morty through one of these portals into an unknown world where there isn’t a pandemic.
You have a perfectly good reason for buying a new handheld console. Use it! Get a Nintendo Switch Lite and a new game to get lost in. I know Animal Crossing is incredibly popular right now, but Mario Kart and Mario Party are my two favorites.
*disclaimer*: OF COURSE, you shouldn’t feel obligated to buy random stuff during this hard time if you’re struggling financially due to not being able to work. This is just a silly, little list. Take it for what it is.
