"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.
 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

Keek is not having a good summer. She and her boyfriend have just had their Worst Fight Ever (on the subject of her virginity, nonetheless), she’s been betrayed by a best friend, her parents are splitting up, and her mother is on the other side of the country tending to Keek’s newborn cousin, who may or may not make it home from the hospital. Oh, and Keek’s holed up at her grandmother’s technology-barren house with an abysmal case of the chicken pox. In Keek’s words, “Sofa king annoying.”   
With her world collapsing around her, Keek’s only solace comes from rereading Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar and typing on an old electric typewriter. Keek—whose snappy narrative voice is darkly humorous and hysterically blunt—must ultimately decide for herself which relationships to salvage, which to set free, and what it means to fall in love.

I love Sylvia Plath so I'm interested to see what role The Bell Jar plays, considering it is a depressing book and this seems to be, while sad in it's own way, not on par with The Bell Jar.  Nonetheless I'm interested to read it.


  1. This does sound interesting... Just out of DFTBA curiosity are you a nerdfighter?

  2. Rebecca - I am indeed a Nerdfighter. I love John & Hank Green and the whole of Nerdfighteria. Alas, none of my real life friends understand so my life is a sad one.


    I hadn't heard of this one before but it sounds interesting :) I'll check it out - thanks!


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
