"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


Holiday Gift Guide: Science Fiction

I'm doing something new this holiday season; I wanted to give book recommendations that would make good gifts!  So I'm going to pick themes  and list books that I think are the best of the best, making great gifts to the book lovers in your life!  I will preface this by stating most of my recommendations will be YA, so keep that in mind!
Books to Buy for the Science Fiction Book Lover! 

Sci-Fi is my second favorite genre.  This has a lot to do with my dad, as he is a sci-fi nut!  He got me watching Star Trek really early, and from that point on I was done for.  My favorite book all through high school was Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, which is one of the preeminent sci-fi books (and an extra suggestion!) Below I've listed some of my favorites and some ones that I've heard great things about!

Feed by M.T. Anderson -Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains.
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow - He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: "M1k3y" will take down the DHS himself.
Mothership by Martin Lecht & Isla Neal - Teen pregnancy is never easy—especially not when extraterrestrials are involved.
Across the Universe by Beth Revis - A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.
Earthseed by Pamela Sargent - Can Zoheret and her companions overcome the biggest obstacle to the survival of the human race—themselves?
Black Hole Sun by David Macinnis Gill - Durango is playing the cards he was dealt. And it’s not a good hand.
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad - Who knows what's really out there?
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan - What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?
Starship Academy: The Pearl Wars by Nick James - Jesse and Cassius make their way to the ruins of Seattle to uncover the truth about their new powers, the past they didn't know they shared, and a shocking secret about the Pearls.
Losers in Space by John Barnes - It is the year 2129 . . . and fame is all that matters.
