Harry Potter Group Re-Read-Along

Almost every year, I re-read the Harry Potter series. I’ve been taking it up less often in recent years, because I’ve been reading books aloud off and on to Eliza. But because I’m sure that project will take a few more years yet, I’m excited to re-read all of the … Continue

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

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

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.

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
