I love books!
All kinds of books. Biographies, history, sci-fi, fantasy, romance and more. Books can take you away to exotic destinations like Narnia, Asgard, Middle Earth, Hogwarts, Galactic Sector ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha, Oz, the planet Buzzell and beyond! And if you love books as much as I do, then come over to Instagram @nerdinthesand
In an effort to live a more minimal lifestyle, I’m attempting to pare down my collection of books. This is your gain, readers!! Cause instead of selling my books…I’m just giving them away! That’s right…they’re free. A couple books a week!
If you live in the US, like to read books and have an Instagram account then you could win them. This week I gave away Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige and A Whole New World by Liz Braswell.
I hope you’ll take my books off my hands and put them into your own! And as I find new reads that I simply love and can’t put down, I’ll make sure to let you know and share them as soon as I do actually put them down.
And for some other book related goodness, come on over to Goodreads and join my Star Wars Book Club!! We read Star Wars books and talk about them and we want you to join us!!
Tonight we party!! Be there or be a big ole square!!
One week from tomorrow, my #NerdySlumberParty is going to be back! We’ll be talking: Favorite Things!
If you’re new to my #NerdySlumberParty… here’s what it’s all about. It’s a monthly Twitter party with giveaways, virtual caterers and fun nerdy chatting, Hope to virtually see you there!
To get you ready, here are a few of my favorite things!
AND SO MUCH MORE!
What are a few of your favorite things??
Sorry for my typo…it’s Friday, October 2nd!
Day 19: Poison Ivy from Batman + Robin
There’s no denying that Batman + Robin is quite possibly one of the worst films ever. And definitely the worst film to ever have the name Batman in the title. No one is disputing that!! What I will say is that Uma Thurman’s, Poison Ivy, is a shining star among a pile of Bantha Poodoo!
She is villainous and sexy and does complete justice to the character of Poison Ivy. Now, imagine her Ivy, Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman and someone as Harley Quinn teaming up together to try and take on the Bat.
That’s a movie I wanna see!!!
This is a fun one, but not really practical for everyday wear. Unless you are a saucy villain with an agenda. Then it makes a lot of sense!!
“Polly wanna kiss?”
Don’t miss my #NerdySlumberParty tonight at 9pm est. We are talking all things DC Comics!!
Giveaways from Think Geek!! Be there or be square!!
Tomorrow night I’m hosting my third Twitter party. Spring is upon us and we are talking all things Disney. You do not want to miss it!!
We have giveaways from Funko’s Pop Vinyl. Virtual catering from Brooklyn’s coolest ice cream shop, Coolhaus. It promises to be a grand time.
So if you’re on Twitter, join in at 9pm est with the hashtag #NerdySlumberParty. If you’re not on Twitter yet, well there’s still time! 😉
Virtually see you there, my lovely nerds.
