Book Review: Enginerds by Jarrett Lerner.

Book Review:

Ever since I saw the cover of this book I knew I needed to read it and when I won a personalized signed copy in a Twitter Giveaway organized by the author I was really excited.

Not being someone to limit myself to the “adults” genres, I enjoy reading all kind of books (from Children’s books, to YA, Fiction, New Adult, Fantasy, etc.) and this one proved to be really a great choice.

Greeeg is a robot that Kennedy (a kid part of a school group called Enginerds) receives in a box that someone left in his doorstep, Greeeg eats everything (except radishes for some reason) and he has an “interesting” way to dispose of food.

love learning and tech and I guess that’s one of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much and why I could relate easily to the wonderful characters created by Jarrett Lerner.

Nerdy and with geeky heart is a way to describe the members of Enginerds, kids that pursue knowledge, learning science and tech while having fun.

Every character has something interesting, but for some reason I liked John Henry the most, with his predilection for “scientifically sound” statements (even if Kennedy is not a fan of him).

Robots, science, tech, friendship, action and teamwork, this book has a lot of elements that

Definitely make it worth to read, share with someone, gift to kids and add to a library collection.

Surprises and twists are present in this fun book that will keep you really entertained and hopefully by the end, also excited about the sequel (the author told me it will be release next year).

New additions to my personal Library and showing appreciation.

Last January when The Shape of Water was released in the Movie Theater near our home I bought tickets for my husband and I, and even when he had some reservations about the movie he ended up loving it as much as I did (he was happy Guillermo del Toro won the Oscar).

When I found out they were releasing the book (written by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus) I immediately put it on my Wish List. Today we celebrated an special occasion and my husband arrived home with a surprise for me:

Earlier today my husband sent me a message saying he was going to be a little late because of work, the truth is that he went to Barnes and Noble (even when he isn’t a fan of shopping in that store and when he goes he is “in and out” really quickly), but today he spent over an hour looking around the store, reading synopsis and reviews to choose the books he was going to give me as a gift.

I loved the books he brought me, but what I love even more is:

  • He knows me well and knows how much I love reading, so books is a great gift option for me.
  • He spent time doing something he doesn’t particularly like (shopping in a Bookstore) just to make me happy.
  • He pays attention and he remembered that I wanted The Shape of Water book.
  • He brought and extra book because, in his words “I know you love YA books”, and that’s true, is actually my favorite genre.

 

So, besides sharing with you the newer additions to my Library I also want to share my appreciation and love for the wonderful man that is my husband.
