Lets Talk Geek


YA Authors

Sandy’s reads:
  • The Spook’s Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney.  It’s set in a fictional Lancashire with excellent local knowledge of British fey and witchlore!
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1) by Patrick Ness : I’ve already reviewed it, but it’s YA that pulls no emotional punches.  Very intense and suspenseful. Not what you’d think you’d find in YA, which makes it very intriguing!

Geek Girl Crafts Podzine

For those of you who missed the PREMIER ISSUE of the Geek Girl Crafts Podzine, it's not too late to catch up on your reading. You can download the Podzine here! We're also looking for new submissions for next quarter's zine.

  1. I luv the brainslug (I want to make one for myself too!)

    Also liked the podzine and I am going to try invent how I could contribute too.

    1. Hanna: If your experiment with designing lace shawls is successful, we'd love to publish a design! You do excellent lace work.
