2-month Update/Will I Make It?/New Website

So what do you think!  I hope you like the change.  I think WordPress is going to make a nice new home for “Nerd Named Sarah,” don’t you!?  I’ve added a new feature for the blog as well.  If you click any of the pictures it will take you to Amazon so you can purchase the book!

Ok, so this is more of a 2 months and one week update, but close enough!  I only read four books in the past month, and I’m starting to worry about making it!  I will though!  You can bet on it.

The schedule for the rest of the year is to finish The Great Gatsby, which is such an easy read.  Next, finish four more books during the last week and a half of October (don’t worry, it’s not as crazy as it sounds with all the books I’ve started but have not finished).  Then I only have 6 books a month for November and December. Whew!

Here’s what I read this month:

KalingWhy Not Me? — She’s refreshing in an off-putting way

Though it’s difficult to relate to a famous comedy writer/actress, she had a way of portraying herself if a very ordinary way.  She made silly mistakes when she first came to Hollywood.  She fawned all over the president.  Kevin Hart made her laugh and cute boys made her blush.  She was cute…in a greasy hair, t-shirt and underwear kind of way!  Favorite quote: When you are entitled, you are the most insufferable person ever.  If you are entitled and hardworking, which I am, you are still pretty insufferable, but at least you somewhat earned your entitled behavior.

the darkThe Dark Between Stars — This author is the most amazing artist.  I have struggled to find poetry I could enjoy, but ever since I read my first Atticus’ poem I have been captivated ever since!  His first book was amazing and his second book just might be even better! There is no way I could only choose one favorite poem, so here are two of my favorites:




“What if she says no?”

asked the boy,

and the old man smiled,

“best not live scared of thorns

or you’ll never find a rose.”  

How beautiful is that!  Wait, here’s another one.

“The doubters

are just dreamers

with broken hearts.”

He can do so much with so few words!


That brings the grand total to…….
