Welcome to another episode of Look at What I Got in the Mail… Sarah Dessen was announced at the 2013 Festival of Books.  She also was going to be signing at the B&N in Huntington Beach over that same weekend.  I didn’t want to deal with the crowd that I knew would be flocking to her, mostly because I had never read one of her books.  Thankfully, Jenn was going to be attending a Sarah event and was willing to […]

Book mail is the best mail and this post is all about signed things I’ve recently received! When the Breathless Reads tour was announced, I knew I would be ordering books for the authors who were on the east coast.  I had been talking with Fiona Paul and Elizabeth Richards a lot on Twitter and those conversations led to what could be the greatest inscriptions I’ve ever gotten. With Fiona, we talked about our mutual love of The Crow.  We […]

Obviously, I can’t be at all of the signings, which is a tragedy.  Thankfully, I haven’t had any serious problems with various bookstores across the country when it comes to ordering for events. And sometimes, I have awesome friends or family get stuff for me…. I had been chatting with Trish Doller on Twitter about Something Like Normal [among other things].  When the time came to ask about getting a signed copy, Trish was awesome enough to give me the […]

The time my friends got all the signatures for me

The time my friends got all the signatures for me

As I’ve said before, living in SoCal definitely has perks.  And more often than not, authors will get to the west coast eventually.  Not always San Diego, but at least LA. In the case of all of the below signed books, I wasn’t able to get to the author, so my awesome friends got things signed for me. Jennifer had told me that she was going to a huge YA author event at Powell’s and asked if I wanted anything.  […]

The time all of the books had pretty covers

The time all of the books had pretty covers

So obviously, a book cover is important when marketing a book. I don’t remember there being such a big deal about cover pictures being released until I started reading YA books.  But, those marketing people are doing something right, because I’ve bought several books just from the cover alone… The upside to living in SoCal is that LA is really close and a lot of authors come through LA eventually. However, the idea of “eventually” is one that I’m not too familiar with, I […]

The time a stranger helped me out

The time a stranger helped me out

After devouring The Pledge in one night, I went to Kimberly’s website to see what else she had written and more importantly, when she was appearing.  I found out that she had written the Body Finder series, which had been on my TBR list.  Another set of books that I hadn’t read, but was really interested in.  From her website, I saw that she had one appearance listed… a bookstore in OR called Powell’s. I immediately went to their website […]

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 […]
