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 […]

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The cover of Everneath by Brodi Ashton sucked me in right away.  I ordered a copy to be signed at her launch party being held at the King’s English Bookstore [SLC, Utah]. The event was being held at the end of January. I had wanted Incarnate by Jodi Meadows pretty much right after I read the synopsis for it.  Always one to want a signed copy, I hunted her down and ended up ordering the book online at the Dark Days event […]

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

So.  A few weeks ago, Stacey Jay was tweeting back and forth with Mysterious Galaxy about her upcoming visit to San Diego and how she wanted to come into the store and sign their back stock.  Seeing that I follow both, I was privy to the entire conversation and I eagerly jumped in, first asking Stacey if she would sign my copy of Juliet Immortal that I dropped off and then asking MG if they would let me drop a […]

The time I succumbed to peer pressure

The time I succumbed to peer pressure

When John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars came out, it was everywhere.  I got an email from Barnes and Noble apologizing to me for sending it out early [when I didn’t even pre-order it].  I had called a bookstore about a different signing and ended up talking to the employee about how amazing it was.  Swoontini reviewed and highly recommended it.  There were two women at the Megan Miranda signing who were going on and on and on about it. […]

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 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 […]
