Posted by Julie Leung

The FINAL round of voting for the Goodreads Choice Awards 2015 is happening and two Quirky titles need your support! Everything gets tallied on November 23rd, so get those votes in! 


The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs | Vote for me here! 

Category: Humor

I'm Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, but most people just call me #FangirlGuide.  I'm a celebration female geek culture. You'll read all about geek identity, convention survival, and even advice from your favorite lady nerds! I work hard to empower girls who love the nerdy life, because it's truly never been a better time to be a girl geek! Remember: you're the Doctor, not a companion! 


Pop Sonnets by Erik Didriksen | Vote for me here! 

Category: Poetry

I resembleth the lovechild of William Shakespeare and the Backstreet Boys.  Shakespeare's plays may have been a source of ennui in high school, but I am anything but boring.  I've sonnetized your favorite Pop Songs, just as if Taylor Swift took a TARDIS trip back to 16th century England (wouldn't she and the Bard have made an amazing singer/songwriter duo?).  Haven't you ever wondered how Sir Mix-A-Lot would have written Baby Got Back if he'd been friends with Shakespeare? See? I make you think about the important things in life.
