Weekly Fangirl Round-Up!

It has come to my attention, this not for the first time, that there has been something missing from the What A Nerd Girl Says blog for quite some time.

And what’s missing is news.

Now, here’s the thing: I’ve made it perfectly clear, time and time again, that this is NOT a fansite, not a news site, not anything like that. What A Nerd Girl Says was created as a place where I talk about all the nerdy and fangirl-y stuff in my life to people besides my boyfriend, who probably wants to strangle me every time I squeal over Theo James’ abs…

I’m not a news site. I just can’t keep up with the insane amount of news that is out. Its just impossible! And frankly, I just don’t have the time. I just don’t. I’m an aspiring YA novelist, I go to all these events, I just don’t have the time. I could get others to help me write the blog but I have a control issue so its basically just me.

That being said…I feel like I need to add something to this blog. I’ve recognized that I’ve been able to garner a fair amount of followers in the near two years that I’ve been blogging and so that is where the Weekly Fangirl Round Up comes in.

Every Friday/Saturday, I will post the weekly round-up, with quick bits of fangirl news for the week, so that they are all congregated in one place. I will do my best to link them, that way you can have a chance to read a full article about said news.

I will also post the links to all the blog posts that I’ve posted that week, in one convenient spot.

Sound good? Perfect. Here’s Weekly Round Up Number 1!

News!

J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy is slated to be a three episode mini-series on HBO. I’m massively excited for this, and think that its going to be phenomenal!
