The time it was about the Quarterly box

The time it was about the Quarterly box

I got an invite to receive a Literary YA box from Quarterly and I was so excited after I heard what it was about.  Before I get to sharing my unboxing photos, let me tell you about how it works. “Receive three books a quarter, including a brand new release annotated by the author with hand-written notes, two more curated titles and delightful bookish goods—all delivered to your doorstep.” — taken from the Quarterly website So, basically, you get one […]

The time it was a new email set up

The time it was a new email set up

So, for a while, I’ve been hearing rumors on the interwebz that Feedburner is coming to an end.  Some of these articles are from years ago, some are from months ago, but I did find one dated last month.  I’m a bit paranoid and always expect these rumors to come to fruition when I’m unable to do anything about them {I don’t know where I’m expecting myself to be…}, but coupled with the constant unreliability, it seemed like time to […]

The time it was all new

The time it was all new

So.  Welcome to the new and improved Adventures of a Book Junkie.  As you may or may not know, I’ve been in the works moving the blog from the dirty whore that is Blogger to a self-hosted site….  And here we are! It’s going to be a bit messy for a bit.  I need to re-upload some of the photos again and some of the menus/indexes aren’t complete yet.  But, it’s live again and it’s awesome and so so so […]

The Time We Took Over the Blog

The Time We Took Over the Blog

Happy Birthday, Stacee!! We all wanted to wish Stacee Happy Birthday, but wasn’t sure what exactly we could do. She has done so many things for us, that we knew it had to to be awesome. Christina, Kassiah, and Michelle thought of the idea to take over Stacee’s blog. We weren’t sure if we could even pull this off, since we didn’t have access, but we had people who knew people. We put on our capes and set off for […]

The time it was an inquiry

The time it was an inquiry

So.  Everyone should know about my epic love for Michelle Hodkin and all things Mara Dyer.  Especially Noah Shaw.  Even though I flew to Chicago for her, I want to fangirl over meet her again. Today the cover for Retribution was released and it is stunning.   Look at them all together.  Aren’t they gorgeous? I realize that it’s too early for Michelle to know tour dates.  However, it’s not too early for me to be trying to get her […]

The time I started a blog

First off, this idea is all LeAnna’s.  LeAnna works at Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach.  I stopped there to pick up an autographed book I had ordered online, since I was unable to attend the signing.  We got to talking about all of the book signings I had been going to during the week [4 in 4 days] and she suggested that I start a blog, chronicling all of the authors I had met. She even said that I should find […]
