Nerds Heart YA update

from the nerdsheartya.wordpress.com blog
for those of you who don't know about Nerds Heart YA, it's essentially a tournament for underrepresented YA literature. which i am a huge fan of. and being a nerd and all, i'm a huge fan of anything that has nerds in the title. so when Nerds Heart YA put out an invitation to bloggers to help judge books for this tournament, i was all up in it.

i'm currently reading the two books passed down to me from the first round. you can see the flow of the system with this helpful little .jpeg from the Nerds Heart YA blog:

as you can see, My Reading Frenzy and i are slated to read ABE IN ARMS and BLEEDING VIOLET. i'm super excited for both of these titles, and will be posting mini-reviews on these titles this week as well as which book Rebecca and I selected to pass along to Beth Fish Reads.

you can read more about Nerds Heart YA here, or check my sidebar for the pretty graphic. you should definitely keep track of what books advance from round to round and read them for yourself to see if you agree with the judge's decisions or not. rumor has it, there's a lot of great literature out there in this tourney.

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. This sounds like a ton of fun to participate in. I'm a huge fan of unrepresented YA books too. Maybe you guys should post a list on goodreads of the winners to share with the community?
