The time we were unsupervised

The time we were unsupervised

Embrace has been on my TBR list for a while. A long while. When I saw that Jessica Shirvington was going to have the release party for Entice at MGRB, I was pretty sure I was going to go. We got up to the store early and bought books. We also got a spiffy reusable bag. After killing time, we got back to the store around 6:45 and proceeded to stand behind Jessica and her friend [handler? assistant? manager? agent?] at […]

The time it was at a library

The time it was at a library

While I’ve been able to see Lauren Kate at several events, I’ve never been able to hear her talk about the Fallen series. So, when I heard through Mrs. Nelson’s that she had announced a date at the Ontario public library, I was definitely going to try to make it. We got up to the library just after 1:30. They had a table display right inside the door. One of the library workers, Courtney, happened to be walking around and she showed us […]

The time it was mostly a Q&A session

The time it was mostly a Q&A session

I happened to find out about Amanda Hocking on accident. I was intrigued about her books and was free the night of the event, so I figured why not. I got down to MG just before 6pm.  I had purchased Wake already and wasn’t planning on purchasing any of the other books.  Then when I walked into the store and saw the other books sitting there, I had to look at them.  And then I had to buy them. Amanda […]

The time I hosted book club

The time I hosted book club

A few months ago, LeAnna at Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach asked if I was interested in hosting the YA book club they held once a month. I was absolutely interested. The first time I was scheduled to host, it was during ALA, so I couldn’t make it. Then at July’s date, I ended up being stuck in horrendous traffic [even with leaving almost 2 hours early] and showed up 10 minutes before it ended. Needless to say, I was prepared […]

The time it was my birthday

The time it was my birthday

About 6 weeks before the date of the event, I noticed that Mysterious Galaxy had posted an event with Sarah J Maas on my birthday.  It was pretty much a given that I was going to go. On the day of, I met Michelle at Starbucks a few hours before the start time so we could catch up on all things post-SDCC. We also bought some books.  And Michelle gave me the most awesome compact mirror that I’m so in love […]

The time the signing was first

The time the signing was first

Emily Giffin has been elusive for me. Something Borrowed was probably one of the first “chick-lit” books I had ever read and I would quickly devour her books when they were released. When I stumbled upon her tour dates for Where We Belong, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go to The Grove or to Vroman’s. And after finding out The Grove would be a wristband event, I decided on Vroman’s. Annnnnnd after seeing the crowd pictures from The […]

The time I took the entire front row

The time I took the entire front row

By now, everyone knows about my love for all things Sarah J Maas and Throne of Glass. So, of course, when the release party date was announced and it was fairly local, there was no doubt that I’d be going. On the day of the release, there were loads of people tweeting about the book, the release party and their attendance. Expecting a lot of people, I forced Hubs to leave San Diego just after 2 o’clock. We got up […]
