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 […]

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 […]
One day I had to stay late at work. With my phone about to die and no charger with me, I convinced my boss to let me leave for a few minutes to run across the street to buy a book to read. Matched by Ally Condie was on my Wish List and the first book I saw, so I grabbed it. And I devoured it in two days. Quickly did a search for Ally online to see what her […]
I don’t have any good stories for obtaining autographed copies of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I sadly didn’t get to meet either author, just ordered them from bookstores. I couldn’t get to San Francisco for Michelle Hodkin. There was another signing I was attending during Laini Taylor at MG RB. I will be paying attention *cough* stalking *cough* both authors for future books [Mara 2!!!] and tours.
I admit to being way behind on the new releases in books. I had no idea wtf Twilight was and only started reading it because I didn’t have the next book in the Kathy Reichs series I was reading. Yes, I had heard a lot about it, but my copy of Twilight just sat on my desk for a few weeks until that day… Anyhoo, I had heard a lot about Anna and the French Kiss. A lot. I was searching for it on the day […]
At the 2010 Comic-con, we saw a lot of people who were carrying around tote bags with a smiley vampire face on it. Every time I saw one, I would stop the person and ask where they got it. No one seemed to remember. My husband probably wanted to kill me because it became a mission. I didn’t know what it was for, but it didn’t matter. I had to have one. Finally, we got some specific directions from a […]
