July Reads | The Nerd Nest

This month I read ten books: two for book clubs, one deeply haunting American classic, one recommendation from Eliza, and a lot of YA. I chose the YA in part because I’m doing creative writing research. I also wanted to pinpoint what I liked about a few books I loved … Continue

June Reads | The Nerd Nest

In June, I read a really wide range of books. I picked a few works of literature I’d been wanting to read (both contemporary and classic), re-read a favorite, celebrated LGBTQ Pride Month with a few novels and essays, and finished the May/June book for the L&R Book ClubContinue

May Reads | The Nerd Nest

For May, I picked a bunch of books for our mid-Atlantic trip that take place in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. It was so fun to read about the places I was going while traveling.

April Reads | The Nerd Nest

It was a good month for reading, you guys! In April, I was a little all over the place with my book selections. I read books I’d selected for Black History Month and Women’s History Month, but didn’t have time to read then. I picked a book for National Poetry … Continue

March Reads | The Nerd Nest

March is Women’s History Month, so to celebrate I read only books written by women! I mixed it up by re-reading a few favorites, reading new-to-me books from favorite authors, and going into some entirely new territory. I picked out twice as many books as I actually read, so I’ll … Continue

February Reads | The Nerd Nest

For a short month, I packed a lot of reading into February. I read two books for book clubs, re-read a few of my favorites, and then dedicated a few weeks the rest of the month to celebrating Black History Month with books. (I picked out five, but forgot … Continue

January 2014 Reads | The Nerd Nest

Reading might be the thing I did most in January. When it’s cold, I just want to bury myself in blankets with a book and never come out. We also acquired a really comfortable chair from my grandpa’s awesome girlfriend Bev (thanks, Bev!). It’s set up in Jake’s and my … Continue

There’s something about winter that puts me on a big fantasy kick. Part of it is wanting the comfort of familiar stories and characters when I get sick, I’m sure. And maybe I associate fantasy with winter because characters are always traipsing through snow at some point in their journeys. … Continue

October Reads | The Nerd Nest

Currently, I’m re-reading 34 or so of my favorite books to figure out why I love them so. I’ve challenged myself to write personal essays on each of the favorites I’m re-reading, though I’m not sharing those essays here. Because obviously, I miss school. For October, I went with a … Continue
