I'm a loud and proud fan of the franchise. Now it's your turn. If you feel like tweeting about my giveaway, just tag me (@ophelia_london) and that'll score you extra points.

  1. I keep a list of the 300+ books in my room in alphabetical order and arrange them all on the shelves also in alphabetical order. Anyone who wants to read one has to sign a "contract" that they will return it in good condition or pay for a new one...pretty nerdy:)

  22. The nerdiest thing I've ever done?! Oh dear, hahah. Once, I cosplayed on a choir trip with my friends for an entire day. It was essentially an entire day of LARPing, hahaha. One of my friends was a guy character, so we stuck all her hair up in a beanie--we actually tricked our chaperone into thinking we'd snuck a guy into our hotel room, hahah. (:

  23. The nerdiest thing I've ever done? Probably went in cosplay attire with my girlfriend (as the Doctor and a companion) to a museum. We proceeded to act like nerds and get into shenanigans in different exhibits haha. Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. I read an ARC of this book and absolutely ADORE it!! I'd love to have a signed copy of it! :)

    Gee, what nerdy thing HAVEN'T I done?! Hmm, so many to choose from...I mean, I've never LARPed before, but...there's a whole lotta nerdy in my 30-something years of life! Let's see: I was in the Chess Club! In 1st grade. Oh. Yeah. Kicked off my public school years *just right*, I'd say! ;)

    So, my question for YOU is...who did you dress up as for those 16 trips to the theater to see Phantom Menace?!?! Did you go with Padme/Amidala? Or that blue woman in a bikini?? OR did you go all gender-bending and dress as a young Obi-Wan Kenobi, perhaps?! :D (my hubs is a HUGE SW fan. tho even he didn't see TPM in the theater 16 times!!)

  39. First off, thanks for the giveaway opportunity and for participating in the hop!

    Secondly, nerdy things? Oh let me count the ways in which I am/always have been nerdy. Um, I participated in spelling bees even when they stopped forcing us to after grade school. I'm quite OCD about everything (which I've had to learn to bend on with a 7yo & 5yo boy as well as a child-husband). Currently my bookshelves are arranged in color, then height, then alphabetical order, but that changes every two months when I dust my shelves and the covers. I also have VERY detailed spreadsheets to keep up with my galleys, book birthdays, and book tours. :D

  43. I would have to say that the nerdiest thing I do is doing math for the fun of it. I get my college math book and I'll sit down and just do a few pages of math. I LOVE math!! Math has always been my favorite subject. I can do it all day long!! Well in-between reading :))) Thank you so much for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!

  44. What nerdy thing have I *not* done?

    I found my soulmate (by accident) on the Internet. I've read 143 of the 183 "Sweet Valley High" books. I collect Barbie dolls, even though everyone tells me I am too old for it. I have seen "Field of Dreams" 50+ times, and can quote alot of it from memory.

    Thanks for participating in this hop! Summer is the perfect time for love to bloom! Probably my favorite love story is the book, "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser and Claire are epic! I also have enjoyed the books, "Courting Miss. Hattie" by Pamela Morsi and a more recent book, "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire.

  53. I read all of Harry Potter in two weeks, I've begged teachers for snail extra credit opportunities so I can get over 100% in their classes, I've waited in line for half a day to meet my favorite author, I've skipped school to meet Ally Carter (rebellious, I know!) and I'm currently begging my father to get me another bookshelf because three just isn't enough. I'm just a tad bit nerdy!
