Luke and Melissa (2)

The Fancy Nerds is the blog of the sister-and-brother duo, Melissa and Luke, who want to share their love for everything popular culture, especially books. Originally, they started out as Confessions of a Fancy Nerd. After they went on an indefinite hiatus, they have returned to the blogging world. Although they have rebranded themselves to The Fancy Nerds, they will continue with the same idea as before, writing about what they love: books, books, and books!

Get to know a little bit about them below!


I am a Fancy Nerd who is primarily interested in reading, writing and TV series/movies. But like a lot of those who share my generation, I have a wide online attention span, care about social justice, have many aspirations, and am carving out a path of my own. My path involves working three-quarter time to enable me to live well with Fibromyalgia (chronic pain and fatigue), so I can live, rather than just cope.

Check out Melissa’s books, Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia and Melissa vs Fibromyalgia!


I am a Communications student in my early twenties who enjoys reading, writing, listening to music, and binge-watching episodes of my favourite shows (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, and Gilmore Girls are among them). I also like to design pretty covers for books.
