geek girl | may 19, 2013

Happy Sunday, everyone! We've just arrived home from a weekend out of town visiting family and are about to settle in and watch the final Doctor Who of the season. I've purposely avoided all my usual geeky blogs this week just to make sure I didn't see even a hint of spoilerage!

Before I jump into this week's roundup, we've been treated to previews of covers for two upcoming Star Wars books lately, and since they came out after I assembled the collage for this week's picks I thought I'd include the larger versions here in all their glory.


In the regular geeky roundup, you'll find lots of wedding inspiration whether you're a Whovian, a Star Wars fan, or somewhat nostalgic for original Nintendo games. So let's jump right in!

  • Nerdalicious rounded up fourteen of the best cookbooks for geeks.
  • I love how the couple behind this Super Mario themed wedding swapped in touches like succulents, cacti, and a cute Princess Peach-inspired dress for a look that's oh-so-adorable!
  • Check out a roundup of some of the greatest geeky engagement rings at When Geeks Wed.
  • Need a box to put that ring in? When Geeks Wed has you covered on that, too, with this TARDIS engagement ring box.

  • Green Wedding Shoes brings us yet another wedding that's inspired by a geeky franchise (Star Wars in this case) without going overboard with it. Love all the gold and glitter touches!
