I know it has been several years since the last blurbing book club selection and that makes everyone sad. But never fear, I am starting it up again and I really hope that Nerdfighteria will get behind this again. I want to see lots of nerdfighters reading, discussing the book and of course leaving their blurbs on the discussion forum thread! Official Discussion for Every Day…Continue
Hello nerdfighters! You may recognise me as the Books Administrator. I've been posting mostly author guest posts lately but I promise that very soon I shall also be bringing you some book recommendations as well as starting up the Nerdfighters Blurbing Book Club! But for now ... let me introduce you to my new collab channel about books. It's made up of 10 book bloggers from around the UK (and I'm sure that maybe half of us are also nerdfighters!) and we'll be on your screens every Monday,…Continue

Hello nerdfighters! I have another special guest post for you today. This time, with Lauren Kate the amazing author behind the Fallen series which I absolutely adored. Her new book, Teardrop, will be published in the UK and the US on the 24th of October! Definitely keep an eye out for that one, it won't be long to wait! (When was the last time you cried?)
Also, I kind of adore Lauren Kate even more knowing how much of a grammar nerd she is. Check it…Continue
I'm hugely excited today to bring you this lovely guest post by the Marcus Sedgwick author of such books as Midwinterblood and White Crow. I absolutely adore his books and I highly recommend that you read them.…Continue
Hello Nerdfighters! Welcome to another Bookish Monday. Today I have a special treat for you. Jennifer E. Smith, the author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and This Is What Happy Looks Like is here to talk to you about how she became a nerdfighter. It's pretty special. And if you want to watch the video where John Green mentions her book, please do: it's here.…Continue
Today I have a special guest post from Jennifer Ridyard, the co-author of a new series of science-fiction books for teenagers. Here is the product description of the book, Conquest. I think it sounds rather good... Over to you, Jennifer!Continue
Hello! I am Clover, your new Books Administrator. Longtime nerdfighters might recognise me from when I was Books NM from years ago *waves* Well, I'm back. This blog comes to you in three parts. The first, I feel as though some introductions are in order but I'll make them brief. Second part will be my plan for the future and third, I'd like to celebrate other bookish Nerdfighters here on the Ning!
Thing 1, Introductions: I am a…Continue
Hello! It's been awhile since I've posted any content here and for that I'm sorry. I'm hoping to make my 'what I've been reading' blog posts at least a monthly occurrence as I do very much love sharing some recommendations with other lovely and bookish nerdfighters! Be sure to comment and let me know what YOU'VE been reading and give me some recommendations too. I love that.
It's been odd over the last few weeks. I'm in the middle of some serious and anxiety-inducing exam…Continue
This is the first blog post for my Love month event at my personal/book blog, Fluttering Butterflies. I would love if you came by and had a look. Even more so if you comment or follow my blog!
Already I've posted loads of book reviews as well as other fun posts and guest posts on the topic of love/romance/crushes. I'd love to see more of a nerdfighter influence/point of view to the event! …Continue

I've already written about my favourite books that I've already read in 2011, and I thought today I'd take a really quick look at some of the books that I can't wait to read during the rest of the year. This list is of course just a fraction of the books I'm really excited about. Please feel free to share the books that YOU most want to read!
(There are so many books out there to be excited about. I've chosen 10 mostly contemporary YA/teen books that I'm excited about, but…Continue
Hello nerdfighters! Welcome to another edition of 'what I've been reading lately' - I think it's an excellent way to talk about books I've loved lately and I'd LOVE to hear what you've been reading and enjoying/hating as well. Please do share in comments.
J.K. Rowling today, Thursday 23rd June, answered mounting speculation about the nature of her new project and announced Pottermore, a unique and free-to-use website which builds an exciting online experience around the reading of her hugely successful Harry Potter books, and is partnered by Sony. …
Sometimes I read a book and whether it's set in another city/country, or the talks about travel to a foreign city/country, something about it just makes me feel itchy to travel and see new things. Hopefully this will be the first of many posts that discuss the book that make me want to travel. Today, I'll be discussing road trips.
I love a good road trip. I'm sure that I've mentioned before how my earliest and fondest memories of growing were the road trips that our family took on a…

Yes, I have been a pretty fail Books ningmaster of late. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted a blog in ages, I haven't updated the reading page and I haven't chosen a new blurbing book club book. I'm really sorry for all of that.
I've been pretty busy of late with other responsibilities in my life. The length of my ningmastership has gone on a lot longer than I'd originally expected - I always knew that things would be start getting tough to juggle once my…Continue
Recently, I've read three really great books. They were well written and constructed, and I've been thinking about them a lot, even after I've finished them and moved on. I love it when that happens, when books make me feel. When they make me think and reconsider my beliefs or opinions. These books really burrowed into my brain and won't let go just yet. I thought I'd talk about them today and hopefully you guys can share the books that burrowed into your brains as…Continue
Hello nerdfighters! I don't know if you've heard, but here in the UK a great number of libraries are set to close and in America, Borders has announced the closure of hundreds of bookstores. I find this to be very sad news indeed. Ever since I was really little, libraries have been my 'happy place.' Whenever I felt out of place at school, picked on or bullied, I'd escape into the nearest library and into a favourite book. I used to suffer from panic attacks when I changed schools (which…Continue
Hello nerdfighters! Sorry for the minor delay in posting this, I am very ill. But still, I bring you bookish news, links and a new monthly feature. Let's start with the bookish news. It's already mid-February, and the blurbing book club is still reading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. It's a really fun, sweet and romantic read, I hope more of you will pick the book up and…Continue
