The time Barnes and Noble told me no

The time Barnes and Noble told me no

I’ve been a fan of Tami Hoag since the late 90s.  The first book of hers I read was A Thin Dark Line and she had me hooked before I was even halfway through.  I’ve been reading her books ever since.  After getting on this kick of book signings, I went to the websites of most of my favorite authors to see if they were doing any events.  Tami had a new book coming out and an book tour.  The […]

The time I didn’t identify myself

The time I didn’t identify myself

As soon as I read Shatter Me, I knew I wanted to meet Tahereh Mafi.  Maybe even before that.  There was a lot of talk on the internet from the people who had ARC’s [Swoontini ladies, I’m looking right at you] and I was already sold on the synopsis of the book.  On Twitter, Tahereh is super fun.  She’s always posting pictures or being a tease when talking about book 2 or 3…  I sort of started stalking her and […]

The time I wanted to send flowers

The time I wanted to send flowers

As I’ve gotten ridiculously obsessed with autographed books, whenever I am going to finally order/buy a book that has been on my TBR list, I always try to hunt down an autographed copy.  Since I’m going to try to find the author and get things signed eventually, it’s easier and cheaper to just start with a signed copy, thus eradicating the purchasing of multiple copies.  [Oh yes, it’s happened.  Many times]. So. The Forest of Hands and Teeth series has been […]

The time Mysterious Galaxy had a sale

The time Mysterious Galaxy had a sale

At some point in the last couple of weeks, I went into Mysterious Galaxy and got an invitation to the big New Years Day sale… I stopped myself from buying anything until after we went to the sale.  Armed with a list, I was at the Starbucks next door at 9:15 am.  By 10, there was a bit of a crowd. The details of the sale was 1-2 books, 20% off.  3-4 books, 25% off.  5 or more, 30% off.  They also […]

The time Gregg Olsen told me he signed a book for me

The time Gregg Olsen told me he signed a book for me

I saw the book Envy by Gregg Olsen right after it came out. Always attracted to a pretty cover, I grabbed it and read the synopsis. I was intrigued, but I didn’t allow myself to buy it. I was trying to be good. Instead, I looked up signed copies and couldn’t find any. I hunted down Gregg on Twitter and asked if he was doing any signings…. Of course right after that, I found an event in Seattle at The […]

The time I bought even more autographed books

The time I bought even more autographed books

A Beautiful Dark had been on my to read list for a while.  I was able to hunt down an autographed copy from Books of Wonder in NYC… Ordering it was super easy and it came in the mail quickly. I saw an ad for The Pledge in an issue of EW.  I found out that Kimberly had done a signing at a Barnes and Noble about a week prior to me finding the ad.  I called to see if […]

The time there may have been weapons

The time there may have been weapons

I only went to the Patricia Cornwell signing because she wrote an amazing book applying forensic science to identify Jack the Ripper. When I saw that she was going to be at Warwick’s, I asked her online if she’d sign that book instead of the new one. As soon as she said yes, I bought the book. Assigned seating was already gone by the time I made my way to La Jolla to get the book. So, that just meant […]
