This is one of my favorite posts to write!! I love discovering new books to be excited about and I love talking to y’all about them!
Hump Day Hype is a meme I decided to start doing in order to talk about books I’m excited for! It’s a great way to introduce y’all to some potentially new favorites! I hope y’all enjoy!
“[Czerski’s] quest to enhance humanity’s everyday scientific literacy is timely and imperative.”— ScienceStorm in a Teacup is Helen Czerski’s lively, entertaining, and richly informed introduction to the world of physics. Czerski provides the tools to alter the way we see everything around us by linking ordinary objects and occurrences, like popcorn popping, coffee stains, and fridge magnets, to big ideas like climate change, the energy crisis, or innovative medical testing. She provides answers to vexing questions: How do ducks keep their feet warm when walking on ice? Why does it take so long for ketchup to come out of a bottle? Why does milk, when added to tea, look like billowing storm clouds? In an engaging voice at once warm and witty, Czerski shares her stunning breadth of knowledge to lift the veil of familiarity from the ordinary.
I find science so fascinating so it’s no wonder why I would be excited for this book. I love how weird and cool it can be haha. What about y’all?
I took physics in high school and I struggled. Some lessons were easier than others, but it could be a struggle. However, I didn’t have a teacher who was very good at teaching it either, but I would love to read this book and see what it’s all about while learning some cool new things. What was your favorite class in school? Or what is your favorite subject?
Like I’ve said I want to read more nonfiction so it took some time to find this book, but I’m glad I did because now I want it! It comes out January 23, 2018. So I have some time to wait but I’m excited! I just find this stuff so interesting and I honestly wish it was talked about more in the bookish world.
