Love in Bloom – Blog Hop Giveaway

Love in Bloom Giveaway Hop
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Portrait of a Book

I’m so excited to be participating in the Love in Bloom blog hop again this year.
This time, I’m giving away a signed copy of the fabulous Leah Rae Miller’s The Summer I Became a Nerd. Isn’t the cover enough to make you want to reach into your screen and grab it?

To enter, just leave me a comment, telling us the nerdiest thing you’ve ever done. I’ll go first. I saw Star Wars the Phantom Menace 16 times in the theater. That’s right. 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. Please leave me your email addy so I can find you later.

    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:)

    I had a Meetup group for a year that was the Sci-Fi/Fantasy group. I organized outings to the science center, archon, kama con, etc. We also had a book club:)

    I color code and alphabetize everything in my house… I am OCD about everything… I honestly freak out when my husband moves things on my coffee table by an inch lol it is quite sad….

    Whenever I see a person put a book in the wrong place whether in a library, book store, or my own book shelves I freak out and make them put it back where it belongs because it bugs me to death. 😛 Weird, I know.

    I waited in line for over six hours to see one of the Harry Potter movies at midnight. And have seen the last five or so at midnight. Love HP!

    I have boxes and boxes of X Men comics. Also, I have seen every movie and cartoon that is X Men related and own them all. I don't know if that's nerdy or obsessed lol.

  7. Tia Dalley says:

    I was such a trusted student when I was in high school that they let me grade other student's papers and type up their report cards.

  8. Casey B. says:

    Hmmm…I once had this mad urge to smother myself with knowledge and read through like 4 different textbooks. I believe they were World History, Algebra, Bio, and Literary Exploration:) Dark times…

  9. RIN says:

    My whole life is one big nerd-fest. I went to the State competitions for Math League and Science Olympiad in high school…

    I used to skip recess to help the teachers grade their papers…lol


  11. Christina says:

    Gosh, what geeky thing have I NOT done? I've watched Titanic in the theater 6 times (which I'm pretty embarrassed about now), and I screamed like a fan girl when I got home after dinner with Lauren Oliver. 🙂

    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. (:

  13. Jillyn says:

    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.


  14. Erika says:

    Taught math for years:) It is all I can really think of right now but I'm sure there are a lot more! Thanks!

    I became a teacher because I never want to stop learning. This summer I am challenging myself to start reading every Newberry winner and runner up since the award started in 1922.

  16. Dorothy Teel says:

    I set the clock in my card and in my living room 10 minutes fast so I won't be late, I hate walking into anything late, usually I am too early, but at least I am not late…LOL i.teel(at)sbcglobal.(dot)net

  17. Natasha says:

    I used to always read a book a day.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I dressed up in a full Hogwarts student uniform for the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, I was 20, so I'm very much a nerd, lol.


  19. Linda Kish says:

    Not nerdy but when the first Star Wars movie came out I stood in line in the rain for two hours to be able to see it on the first day.

    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?! 😀 (my hubs is a HUGE SW fan. tho even he didn't see TPM in the theater 16 times!!)

  21. Christina2227 says:

    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. 😀

    I love my books and always reorganize them when I get knew books. I can stay up all night to the early morning reading if I can get away with it 😉

    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.

    I went to New York for two week and I spent the entire two weeks in the hotel reading all Nicholas Sparks' books. It was epic my mom got so mad at me that when we got to Miami she hid all my books for like a week.

  25. Meghan says:

    I like to collect things like books or movies. I also collect Wheat Pennies for my father.
    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.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    I love to read old textbooks that my bookstore sells for clearance!

  27. Corina Lombardi says:

    I absolutely dressed up like a Spice Girl for Halloween two years in a row…I still listen to all their music and I'm not afraid to admit it!


  28. Kristi says:

    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!
