Liz (liz_the_librarian) How is everyone's summer going? I can't believe we're already at the end!

Here's what I'm reading:
The Fold by Peter Clines
The Fold by Peter Clines
Boxers by Gene Luen Yang
Boxers (Boxers & Saints, #1) by Gene Luen Yang
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
Shadow's Edge by Brent Weeks
Shadow's Edge (Night Angel, #2) by Brent Weeks

I feel like I have a pretty good mix going on for once, between sci-fi, historical fiction, graphic novel, nonfiction and fantasy.

What are you reading this week?

What did you think of Amanda Palmer's book? I've always admired her music and performance art but really have no idea what to expect from a memoir.

I haven't really been keeping up with my reading over the last few weeks. Some days it's just nice to curl up with Netflix. Lol. I did, however, blaze through Felicia Day's memoir You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost). Such a good book.

This week my goal is to finish books! Currently working on The Buried Giant, The Hunt for the Golden Mole, and The Demon Trapper's Daughter .
You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro The Hunt for the Golden Mole All Creatures Great and Small, and Why They Matter by Richard Girling The Demon Trapper's Daughter (The Demon Trappers, #1) by Jana Oliver

Liz (liz_the_librarian) Joanna, I am currently listening to her book. I had NO IDEA that she was a child prodigy in so many areas, especially after barely going to school and not even getting a high school diploma. I have been laughing at loud throughout the book. It makes me want to drop everything I'm doing and just embrace the geek inside - nerd out to video games and comic books!

I know! I mean, I knew she played the violin and had a math degree but I did not realize that she was a prodigy in those areas. Her life story is really amazing. And she does really make you want to embrace what is geeky/nerdy about yourself and not be afraid to let it shine.

(So, is the audiobook really good? She narrates, right? I love the way she talks so I'm seriously tempted to buy the audiobook and listen to it even though I just read the book. Lol)

It was a very interesting book (I read it twice). She talks about how she created the relationship that she has with her group, and about how in the beginning of their relationship she couldn't ask Neil to lend her money (even after they were married).
