I’m so excited to announce that I am now a member of a book club. It’s called the Fanboy Book Club and it was created by Bianca @ Ultimate Fangirl. FBC is a book club dedicated to read, discuss, and review books with male leads. If you’d like to know more about this book club, check out Bianca’s post here and her intro post here. The official goodreads page could be found here. I never joined a book club before, so it’s going to be fun!
Our February read is a book called Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone. You might have heard of it :p It’s going to be a re-read for me, but it’s been a while since I re-read HP so I cannot wait!
But first of all, a kick-off post!
Tell us a little bit about yourself
Hey guys *waves* I’m Windie, currently resides in my hometown in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Anyway, I love books (obviously), procrastinating, coffee, (learning to) write codes, and I suck at graphic-making. I’m also an avid F1 fan, but never mind that. :p
How did you come up with your blog name?
My blog is called Geek Apprentice because it wasn’t meant to be a book blog. I used to blog about techy-stuff I was learning about (hence the name), but then last October I decided to switch to book blogging.
You could totally see that I’m awful at planning.
Who is your favorite male character?
The first name that came to my mind is Nico DiAngelo (from the infamous Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan). And after that Alan Ryves (from The Demon’s Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan). Please let me have two. I don’t wanna choose between my faves.
I’m giving you the freedom here. Who are your book husbands/book boyfriends?
I know this is supposed to give me freedom, but I tend to ship character with other character so I don’t really have a book boyfriend. lol. I’m just going to go with my fave here: Alan Ryves. Because he loves books, he’s a good cook, and he’s great with parents and children (I suck at both). He’s also a compulsive liar, but I think I could handle that.
Book with a male lead that really stuck to your heart?
The Demon’s – okay fine I’ll go with another book. It’s also one I’ve been mentioning a lot: Unwind by Neal Shusterman. It actually has multi-POV but I always think the first Unwind book as Connor’s story. Unwind is a book that’s really close to my heart because the theme (organ donation vs unwinding) struck me as realistic and it’s one of a very few books that really blew my mind.
