How to Date a Nerd Blog Hop!

Can't say I've ever done a Blog Hop before...but it sounds like fun! goes...

The nerdiest thing(s) about me:
Totally dressed my 1 year old up in a Yoda costume last year and will definitely be finding another Star Wars character for this year before she can come up to me and say, "Mommy, I want to be a princess!" (ughhhh boring!!!); oh, and I also have my library categorized by genre and then alphabetical by author!!

In case you're wondering what all this hype is about...How to Date a Nerd by Cassie Mae is hitting (e-)shelves September 24th!! I can't convey how excited I am about this book! I've been waiting to read it since I finished another of Cassie's novels (Friday Night Alibi). Here's the official book blurb:

Zoe has a great pair of legs, perky boobs, and wears exactly what she needs to show it all off. She works hard for the easy sleazy 'you only wish you were me' reputation, burying who she really is--an all-out nerd.

The only time Zoe gets to be herself is when she hides under her comforter to read X-Men comics, sending jealousy stabs at everyone who attends Comic-Con. Keeping up her popular rep is too important, and she's too insecure to care about the consequences. But when Zoe's sister takes her car for a 'crash and burn into a tree' joyride, her parents get her a replacement. A manual. Something she doesn't know how to operate, but her next door neighbour Zak sure as heck does.

Zak's a geek to the core, shunned by everyone in school for playing Dungeons and Dragons at lunch and wearing "Use the Force" t-shirts. And Zoe's got it bad for the boy. Only Zak doesn't want Popular Zoe. He wants Geek Zoe.

She has to shove her insecurities and the fear of dropping a few rungs on the social ladder aside to prove to Zak who she really is and who she wants to be...if she can figure it out herself.

Now, if only I can figure out how to do this side-bar thing...not nerdy enough, I guess! LOL.


  1. Haha! I want to get my little girl a Yoda costume too! That sounds epic!

  2. I've seen some little ones in Yoda costumes and they are so adorable. I avoided the princess thing for as long as I could, but eventually we got to that stage. But this year she wanted to be the scary ghost from Scream. Probably cause her brother was that last year. Neither of them know what's behind the costume since they haven't seen Scream, but they get a kick out of the ugly mask.

  3. I'll take a Scream mask over a princess any day!! i have no clue how it happened, but she loves them even though I try to avoid them as much as possible. She's still a bit young to understand Hallowe'en and the concept of dressing up so I may be able to squeeze in one more year of something awesome!! I am thinking Batman is nice and easy...

  4. Oh my goodness! A baby Yoda! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! Another adorable Star Wars costume for a baby would be an Ewok! Now that would be adorable!

    I posted a blog about the nerdiest thing about me too. Feel free to drop by! :)

  5. I want that costume! Oh my gosh, it'd go great with my Yoda backpack :)

    Hey, so if you had my book in paperback, who would I sit between on the shelf? I'm all curious! LOL

    Thank you for hopping!!!

  6. I'm going to have to find a good pic of the costume!!

    You would be between the shelf and Amy & Roger's Epic Detour!!!
