Nerd Alert

Whelp, nearly a month has passed between posts – again – and while I have a ready-made list of reasons why, I think the biggest one was simply wrapping my mind around my shifting posting schedule and thinking of the “Nerd Alert” as kicking off the week, as opposed to ending it, like it did when I was posting on Saturdays. Schedules are funny things: Growing up, my weeks always ran from Sunday to Saturday, but a few of the planners I’ve started using make Monday the start of the week, which is fine . . . it just takes a few mental gymnastics to juggle the two at the same time! So, instead of wishing you a good weekend, I will hope that you all have a great week!  Read More

Deadly Manners/Darkest Night

As I’ve mentioned a few times before on this blog, I was a bit of a latecomer to the whole podcast trend, but now I am definitely onboard the train! While most of my selections concern political news, true crime, and word-nerdyness, some of my favorites are more full of mystery and horror than anything else. There’s the Black Tapes and Lore, which were some of my first forays into the genre, and now I’ve got Deadly Manners and Darkest Night. Well, I had Darkest Night… I binge-listened to both seasons this weekend! Read More

Mariner Books

Helloooo readers!! Before I get to our final GeekyNerdy Book Club selection for 2017, I have a quick editorial announcement to make.

After months of repeatedly missing my declared posting dates, I decided that it was time to reevaluate my schedule. In looking at my various have-to-dos, want-to-dos, and wish-to-dos, shifting things over by a day seemed like it would be a little more manageable. So, for October at least (I’ll sort of test things out and see how they go), my posts will be going up on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Okay, now on to the fun stuff – our next book club read! Read More

GNBC: Shockaholic

SIMON & SCHUSTER

Happy Monday readers!! I don’t know about you, but I’m still having trouble realizing that we are nearly halfway through September and more than two-thirds of the way into this year. On top of that, though I knew that I was about a month and a half behind in sharing a discussion post for our latest GeekyNerdy Book Club read, I didn’t realize that I had chosen Carrie Fisher’s Shockaholic almost three months ago!

As you may remember, when I chose Shockaholic, I did so because I realized that I didn’t actually know all that much about Fisher, outside of her role as Princess/General Leia in the Star Wars films. I generally knew of her, but there was very little that I could actually say about the woman herself. Read More

It’s safe to say that 2017 has been a tough year birthday-wise at GeekyNerdyHQ. I re-broke a toe on the morning of my name day, and not quite three weeks ago, just a few days before the Mysterious Mr. C’s, he was in a pretty nasty car accident. Luckily, he’s physically okay – just a few minor bruises from the air bag and some whiplash – but dealing with the emotional and mental fallout from such a traumatic incident, as well as the insurance companies, has been draining.

As such, we’ve spent much of the past few weekends hunkered down at home bingeing on Netflix. Two days after the crash, it was season three of Voltron: Legendary Defender. A week after that, it was the first season of Attack on Titan. And this past weekend, it was Marvel’s The DefendersRead More
