I'm Sarah! I love to read, write, and create. My blog is to share my passion for life while living with chronic pain. I hope you'll enjoy this journey and a good book with me!
I haven't had a chance to update my domain to match my blog name, yet, but I'm working on making it all come together!
Visiting from a search engine? New here? This is what you need to know:
I'm not doing well, health-wise, so I have not been updating or writing as much as I would like.
However, I am trying to write once or twice a week!
Also, if you have a problem with the Le Tote post that I wrote two years ago, I'm sorry. It's the Internet.

Recently, I gave an update on my reading challenges. I fear that I signed up for so many that I can't completely keep track of them or link up my progress. You can read my first update from last month here. I noted the changes below! For the 2015 TBR Pile Challenge, I’ve read 4 out of 12 books: Dark Places: A Novel, Gillian Flynn Girl, Interrupted, Susanna Kaysen The Talented Mr. Ripley, Patricia Highsmith Lady Chatterly’s Lover, DH Lawrence I didn't make any progress in February! 🙁 For reading 52 Books in 52 weeks, I am way ahead of schedule. I have read 31 books so far this year (at the time of writing)! For the Audiobook challenge, I said that I would aim for 30-50 this year. So far, I’ve read/listened to 23 audiobooks. Almost there! For the I Love Library Books challenge, I am aiming to read at least 24 books from the library. The majority of the books I read are from the library, used, free on Kindle in the public domain, or from publishers for reviews. So far, I’ve read 8 books! I only had 2 last time, so I'm making progress. And finally for my Classics Reading Membership Challenge, which I started on December 24, 2014, and gave myself 2 years to read 50 books, I’ve read 17! My anticipated list is here, but it is definitely subject to change! So far, I’ve read: The Awakening, Kate Chopin Little Men, Louisa May Alcott Daisy Miller, Henry James Cranford, Elizabeth Gaskell The Beautiful and Damned, F. Scott Fitzgerald Lady Chatterly’s Lover, DH Lawrence Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert The Talented Mr. Ripley, Patricia Highsmith This Side of Paradise, F. Scott Fitzgerald The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner Adam Bede, George Eliot I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Tales of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgerald The Convenient Marriage, Georgette Heyer The House in Paris, Elizabeth Bowen The End of the Affair, Graham Greene Wessex Tales, Thomas Hardy Finally, for this year’s Back to the Classics Challenge, I’ve read the following books for the following categories: A 20th Century Classic — any book published between 1900 and 1965. Just like last year, all books must have been published at least 50 years ago to qualify as a classic. The only exception is books that were published posthumously but written at least 50 years ago.): The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner (1929). A Classic in Translation. As in last year’s category, this can be any classic book originally written or a published in a language that is not your first language. Feel free to read it in its original form if you are comfortable reading in another language: Madam Bovary, Gustave Flaubert (1857). A Classic with a Person’s Name in the Title. First name, last name, or both, it doesn’t matter, but it must have the name of a character. David Copperfield, The B rothers Karamazov, Don Quixote — something like that. It’s amazing how many books are named after people: Adam Bede, George Eliot (1859). A Classic Novella — any work shorter than 250 pages. The End of an Affair, Graham Greene (1951). So, I added one more category. Four down and eight to go!
