January 2018 Reads | The Nerd Nest 1

For years I’ve been documenting the books I read each month by having Jake take a photo with them in a stack. Books are a big part of my life, so I absolutely love having this record (and being the subject of photos every month has helped me become more … Continue

October 2015 Reads | The Nerd Nest

In October, I decided to do a 31 Scary Days project, so the books I read were mostly in the horror genre. I finished several of them in November, though, so the spooky stretched longer than 31 days.

September Reads | The Nerd Nest

In September I read widely– a bestseller, National Book Award winning non-fiction, a thriller, a book from a fantasy series, and young adult fantasy. Some were fantastic, others…not so much.

August Reads | The Nerd Nest

In August, I didn’t have a lot of free reading time or brain power to dedicate to complicated concepts, as I was busting out a video a day for our 31 Days of Challenges unit Pocket Your Year. So I finished up the next volume in a series I’m … Continue

June 2015 Reads | The Nerd Nest

I’m on a huge sci / fi fantasy kick this year. I have always loved these genres, but usually I come up for breath with classics and literature. Not this summer: I’ve had a lot on my plate and I’m looking for my book equivalent of comfort food. I’m doing … Continue

May 2015 Reads | The Nerd Nest

I’m on a giant sci fi kick, so May was largely for continuing and finishing series. I also read a dash of horror, a bit of crime, urban fantasy, and realistic fiction. So while I’m mostly sharing genre fiction this month, I did mix it up a little.

April Reads | The Nerd Nest

In April I read A LOT, partially because reading calms me when I’m stressed and partially because I had extra reading time during our foster baby’s weekly visitation. This month’s books were heavily sci fi and fantasy. I also read a ton of comics, a YA novel, and a bit … Continue
