Regina & Rhonda

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. The Wrinkle in Time series was incredibly influential for me. I did my first book report on it! I'm a little scared to reread them now that I'm older. I always liked Meg and sympathized with her because she went to the ends of the universe to save her little brother.

    Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) also featured one of my favorite child characters, Lyra. I reread The Golden Compass last year and had the same experience Regina had with A Wrinkle in Time. I'm not in the same place as I was as a kid and the magic faded a little.

    And Rhonda, if you're looking for a YA fantasy, Sabriel by Garth Nix is one of my all time favorites. I've probably reread it half a dozen times and still love it.

    Clementine from The Walking Dead game is tough as nails and I love playing as her in Season 2.
