Spreading your Nerd Love

Why is Harry Potter so Great?

My Best friend tagged  me in on this post on Facebook and I thought it was hilarious!! So, my question to you all is: What book can you not wait to share with others (besides Harry Potter)?  What book makes you wanna share your nerd love ?

For me, it depends on what I’m reading, but my staples are Agatha Christie’s Murder on The Orient Express, Sara Maas’s Throne of Glass series, The Rook (review coming) by Daniel O’ Malley, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Lumberjanes (comic book) by Noelle Stevenson, She- Hulk (comic book) by Charles Soule, Ms. Marvel (comic book) by G, Willow Wilson and Robert Galbraith’s (aka J.K. Rowling) Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm.

As you can see I am always prepared to share a book or comic with anyone! So, shout out your nerd loves books (and comics)! And as always, “Get up, go out into the world, and do awesome shit.”

Fangirling over Fangirl

Standard

     So, here we are again!  I am getting back into the groove of things, just like Stella! (If you didn’t get my Terry McMillan novel, reference, it’s okay. I just kinda dated myself, that’s all. Haha. ) Anywho, the book that I read this time was Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell.  This I read for my YA novel part of the Book Riot #ReadHarder challenge. (Which is coming along nicely, I might add.)

     Just a little bit about Ms. Rowell, there is very little about her. Haha. She RainbowRowell_photohas accounts on all of the social medias, yet her bios and wikipedia page are really short.  She’s just an awesome writer that lives in Nebraska. I will have a link to her webpage HERE, so you can see where she will be and learn more. Fangirl is her 5th book written, and her other books, Landline and Eleanor& Park have gotten rave reviews and Eleanor& Park will be made into a movie later this year. Continue reading

Before I begin this review, I would like to say that I am 1,000% bias towards Aisha Tyler. I ADORE her! I have even stated on my home page that I feel like she is my Super Sayan or for those of you who didn’t watch” Dragon Ball Z”, she the Raichu to my Pickachu, an evolution of sorts.  (I mean, look at that picture, she seems so nice, just a cool chick on a rooftop, laughing, drinking a beer. Who wouldn’t want her as a friend?) I fell in love with her stand up years ago and the more popular she gets and the more interviews, podcast, books,etc that she does, the more I really feel like she gets me. I know this seems like the making of a stalker, but I don’t have the skill to hone a craft such as stalking. There is too much time and hacking invested in stalking that I don’t care for.

For those of you who are like, “Who the hell is Aisha Tyler?” Well, I’ll give you a brief biography. Aisha Tyler grew up in the bay area of California, she is a hilarious comedian with a few stand up specials. She has 2 books out (one of which I will review) and does lots of work on TV. She is the voice of Lana ARCHER: "Lana Kane" as voiced by Aisha TylerKane for spy the cartoon “Archer”, as well as being a co host of the talk show “The Talk” and she is the new host of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and was the host of “Talk Soup”. Along with her television jobs, she also hosts a girl on guy podcastweekly podcast named “Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler” where she talks to celebrities about assorted shenanigans. Most people may recognize her from her role as Charlie on the TV show “Friends”(which the WHOLE world is streaming right now) as she 2015-02-04 14.18.02was Joey, then Ross’ girlfriend. She fearless, brazen, inappropriate, hilarious, intense gamer, confessed nerd and an all around awesome badass chick, who based on her principle alone, I would like to emulate one day when I figure out how to get my sh*t together.
