Boyfriend Book Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

The Boyfriend Book Review is a recurring column here on What A Nerd Girl Says.  My boyfriend, Daniel (read his bio here), is a reader as well. He suffered from what a lot of male readers suffer from – they only read white men! Well, of course, that didn’t really work with this Nerd Girl and he has been making a journey through my massive YA collection. Now we’ve started this column together, to review books that I’ve most likely already reviewed so that we can get a male perspective on it. We hope you enjoy!

Throwback Thursday Review: The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

The Throwback Thursday review is where I take a book I recently reread and review it with new eyes. It could be a book I’m reading for the second, third, fourth or millionth time. Some books haven’t been read in years so its fun to throwback and see if my opinion has changed!

Just recently, the title for the Hunger Games prequel novel was announced – The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. You can read yesterday’s Waiting on Wednesday for it here. But it got me excited and figured since I was a mini slump with reading, I would try some rereads and ended up rereading the entire trilogy in a matter of days.

Please keep in mind that Throwback Thursday reviews are based on reread books. They most likely will contain spoilers as the books have already been released for some time. This is your only warning if you want to avoid spoilers for these books.

Throwback Thursday Review: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

This week’s book is Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin – a book that I read for the first time years ago and reread once every year or so because I do enjoy it. I wanted to tackle it in a throwback review because now I’m older than the main character.
