armchair bea intro

while being totally jealous of everyone who has the opportunity to live the dream at BEA (book expo america), i am also kind of excited to be a part of the armchair BEA hosted by Armchair BEA Central.

today, those who are participating are introducing themselves. you can find out extreme details about who i am at my Who is Lisa the Nerd page, but for now, i leave you with this brief introduction:

in five words: silly, introverted, extroverted, enthusiastic, comfortable
if i could put one book into the hands of everyone i meet: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. it's just SO GOOD.
if i could watch one movie forever and ever: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. i already rewatch these movies at least monthly, so i know for certain that i could handle that action forever and ever.
book i'm most excited about in 2011: it's a tie between The Death Catchers and A Monster Calls. there are no words to express how excited i am about those two titles, or how excited i am that i have an advance review copy of both of these books. seriously, these are going to be incredible!

stay tuned for more fun Armchair BEA action this week!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. yay! I'm doing armchair BEA too!

    I love that you are both introverted and extroverted. LOL!

    Yes! Harry potter is just so awesome. The Philosopher's stone so enchanting. I love the way it's written. I need to reread the whole series!

  2. Welcome to armchair BEA! I see you're reading the Game of Thrones series. I want to start it soon. My friend is obsessed and has roped me in.

  3. i'm about to re-read the whole Harry Potter series all the way through (i've only read them the once) just for fun.

    and my boyfriend's name is tolkien, so i naturally love Lord of the Rings. :)

  4. I have an ARC of A MONSTER CALLS on the way and I'm totally thrilled. I LOVE Patrick Ness. The guy's such an amazing writer. I can't wait to see what you think of the book.

    Glad to have found you via Armchair BEA!

  5. I'm so happy your participating! I keep coming to your page and seeing "currently nerding over..." and I'm jealous! My books are never going to get here!

  6. Jacinda - they will arrive in no time and then the obsession will set in and you will finish the series before i even get through the one i'm reading! ;)


Hey you! What do you have to say?
