Sarah Wendell is a transplanted Pittsburgher currently living in New York metropolitan area. By day she's mild mannered and heavily caffeinated. By evening she dons her cranky costume, consumes yet more caffeine, and becomes Smart Bitch Sarah of
Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. The site specializes in reviewing romance novels, examining the history and future of the genre, and bemoaning the enormous prevalence of bodacious pectorals adorning male cover models. Sarah has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Post, the Philadephia Inquirer, and on The Today Show.

I have a dashboard!

I have an Author dashboard. I'd love it if it came with an Author truck complete with Author snowplow attachment so I could go tackle the non-authorized snowstorm outside.

Quotes by Sarah Wendell  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Being in the habit of saying "Thank you," of making sure that people receive attention so they know you value them, of not presuming that people will always be there--this is a good habit, regardless...make sure to give virtual and actual high-fives to those who rock and rock hard.”
Sarah Wendell, Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels

“To quote French author François Mauriac, ‘Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who your are' is true enough, but I'd know you better if you told me what you reread.”
Sarah Wendell, Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels

“If a person who is content with his life meets someone who makes everything just a little bit more challenging, who both fits and doesn't fit into his life and his routine, to quote Guy Fieri, it is On Like Donkey Kong: swing the rope, jump the barrel, and save the princess.”
Sarah Wendell, Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels

Leon Shure Hi Sarah,
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I'm trying to write a mystery/romance with a very strong woman as the protagonist. It's going fairly well. Maybe you'll read it when it's published.

Laura Hey sarah! thanks for accepting :) We talk all the time on twitter, now I can stalk follow you here too :)


Jacobmartin Thanks for the friend invite. Welcome to Goodreads!

Currently struggling to find love stories aimed at men. So far only Train Man by Hitori Nakano and my current read Mr. Rosenblum's List come close, and both of those are worlds apart in both the settings and constructions of race and gender.

It would be really interesting to see you, the queen of romance reviewing, take a stab at Train Man, because out of all the love stories I've attempted to read, it's like an internet age Jane Austen from the perspective of a male Japanese nerd.

You want to know why girls have Tiger Beat posters of Japanese pop stars on their walls? Well, this book gives you a perspective of the substance behind the mancandy.

Tami Winbush I've been dying to read your book! :)

I'm getting my Kindle on Monday - is available in Kindle format?

Tami

PS. Thanks for adding me as a friend.

Lisa Hendrix Hey, Sarah, welcome to Goodreads. I'm surprised you weren't here before (assumed you were, in fact). I pop in and out on an erratic basis, but I'm sure I'll see you on the discussions somewhere.

Wendy Welcome to goodreads, Sarah! If you were of a mind, since you do have a book out, you could add yourself (and Candy) as a Goodreads author. Unless you're here undercover?
