The time it was short, but sweet

The time it was short, but sweet

I feel like it’s common knowledge that my love for Pride and Prejudice and zombies [as separate entities] is vast. Imagine my delight when Seth Grahame-Smith combined them in the book so cleverly titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I read it in one sitting and when Barnes & Noble came out with the special edition [“with 30% more zombies!!”], I was all over it. So. When I saw that Seth was going to be doing a signing to promote […]

The time I laughed a lot

The time I laughed a lot

I had gone back and forth trying to decide if I was going to go to the Christopher Moore signing at Mysterious Galaxy. I had read some of Lamb, but ended up giving it up after getting through about half of it. Not to say that it wasn’t funny, because it certainly was.  I think it was just a bit too dry for me. The topic of his new book, Sacré Bleu combined Paris and Van Gogh, so I was […]

The time I was a dead body

The time I was a dead body

Going to the Barry Lyga signing for I Hunt Killers was very spur of the moment. I had gone to MG to buy a book for another signing and decided why not… We got up to MGRB with time to kill, like always. I ended up going inside around 7 and was chatting with LeAnna [the sole reason this blog exists]. She mentioned that she was going to make an outline of a body and I offered to be the […]

The time I went to WonderCon

The time I went to WonderCon

When I told people we were going to WonderCon, I got one of two reactions. Either “why waste your time?” or “what’s WonderCon?”. Admittedly, I fell into the latter category. We’ve been going to Comic-con for 15 years and never once heard of WonderCon. After seeing how cheap tickets were, we figured why not? Saturday was interesting. We got up late and with the rain, didn’t get to Anaheim until 11:30 or so.  I’m not sure what I was expecting, […]

The time I didn’t read the books before the signing

The time I didn’t read the books before the signing

I had heard all sorts of good things about Vroman’s bookstore in Pasadena. When I saw that Lauren Oliver was signing, I was all over it. Add Claudia Gray and I was set… I ordered the books through the website with a note that I would be picking the books on the day of the event. When we got to Vroman’s, I was instructed to go to the will call section upstairs. The woman who helped me, Mary, was extraordinarily […]

The time I wanted the Australian cover

The time I wanted the Australian cover

I fell in love with Graffiti Moon instantly. The lyrical way Cath Crowley tells the story of Lucy and Ed while they look for Shadow made me feel as if I was in the van, right next to them. As soon as I finished the book, I first went looking for Cath’s website to see if there was a chance to get a signed copy. After it seemed nearly impossible, I then went hunting for a copy with an Australian […]

The time I got book plates

The time I got book plates

Once upon a time, someone retweeted a post by Megan Crewe.  She was offering personalized book plates for her new release The Way We Fall.  All you had to do was go to her website and provide an address and who it was to be made out to.  The day that I read it was the last day that she was offering it. The Way We Fall had been on my TBR list, but I hadn’t bought it yet [I’m […]
