Hi! Welcome to Nerdy Book Nurse. My name is Lindsay and I work as a Neonatal ICU nurse at a hospital in Boston caring for the city’s sickest babies. Reading has always been a passion of mine. A way for me to escape, out of my own life and into the lives and stories of others. When I first started in nursing, reading became more important than ever as a way to help me stay awake on the overnight shift during my downtime. If a book can grab me and keep me awake at 3 AM when that inexplicable exhaustion washes over, then I know it’s one to recommend. I devised my book rating scale as a coffee cup scale (1-5) based on the likelihood of each book enabling me to get through a 12 hour shift and survive the night.
I started this blog to write honest reviews of the books I was reading in the hopes that I could help people find their next great read. I also enjoy looking for new and upcoming novels. If I have the chance, I try to get my hands on an Advance Readers Copy to review so that you all know what novels I’m most excited about before they are even published.
If any of this interests you, I invite you to join my email list to stay up to date. I send out a monthly newsletter highlighting the books I’ve read that month and the picks that I am most excited about. Follow along and happy reading! ☕
