Sunday Link-Off: Breaking News

nina-dobrev-metgala16-02Apologies for not doing links earlier this week. I’ve been busy in IRL so I’ve been falling behind on blogging. If you think it’s bad over here, you should see how quiet et geekera has gotten. That being said, I do have a few game reviews coming over the next couple of weeks including a mobile review so business should be picking up.

Anyway, it’s Sunday so it’s time for the links. Since we have a lot of Canadian stories in today’s links, let’s kick off with Nina Dobrev.
