SUMMER BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

We didn’t do book recommendations on the show because we were having such a great conversation with Tricia, but here is what we would have said:

BEACH

The Guild – The Offical Companion (because fandom belongs at the beach – Regina)
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury (because, you know, sand – Rhonda)

MOUNTAINS

Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier  (because it’s about a mountain, duh. 🙂 – Regina)
Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (because the mountains are thought provoking – Rhonda)

INTERNATIONAL 

A Light in August by William Faulkner (because reading awesome american novels internationally is just awesome – Regina)
Never Coming Back by Tim Weaver (international murder/thriller – Rhonda)

Until next time, game on!
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.
