Into the Wild Nerd Yonder Contest


The fabulous Julie Halpern is having a contest to win a galley of her new book Into the Wild Nerd Yonder! Here's what it's about:


It's Jessie's sophomore year of high school. A self-professed "mathlete," she isn't sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves into punks and one of them is going after her longtime crush. Her beloved older brother will soon leave for college (and in the meantime has shaved off his mohawk and started dating...the prom Princess!)...


Things are changing fast. Jessie needs new friends. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way--the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. Will hanging out with them make her a nerd, too? And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes?


If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?


Julie is super sweet and I'm excited to meet her at ALA in July. I almost didn't want to tell you all about this contest so that I could be greedy and win!:) I was a nerd in high school-and proud to admit it-and I still love my nerdy self, so I can't wait to read this one. (Also, check out the D&D dice on the cover!)

  1. Oh, trust me, I am a complete nerd. I am reminded of it everyday by my friends. I think it comes along with the territory of being a bookworm.

  3. I'm definitely a nerd. I saw two of my friends today and we honestly were wondering who was the geekiest out of all three of us...when it came to books and reading (we all love to read) I won.

    Thanks for the link, these book sounds exciting. And I KNOW Julie. It took me a second, but I'm pretty sure I read her other book a long time ago. She is sweet.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
