The time I talked about real pants

The time I talked about real pants

Once upon a time, I used to read adult books.  Every once in a while, I’ll request one that sounds good.  It’s rare, but if I see something that catches my eye, I’m all over it.  That was the case with Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia.  I straight up devoured it and there’s a good chance it’ll be one of my top books of the year. So, when I saw that Mindy was going to be […]

The time I learned the surprise ending

The time I learned the surprise ending

Seeing that Victoria Schwab was touring for A Conjuring of Light was exciting. It was even better to see that she was coming to Huntington Beach. Michelle, Keiko, and I made definite plans to go to the event. After a stop at Starbucks, we headed up the hateful 5N. We got up to the store after 11, said hi to Jeanne, and bought books before heading to Cheesecake Factory. After lunch, we went over to the bookstore and found our […]

The time it was all a game

The time it was all a game

I don’t think it’s a secret that Caraval by Stephanie Garber was my favorite book of 2016. So when her tour dates were announced, going to the launch party in San Francisco seemed like a great idea. Even though she was going to be in Pasadena, which is about 90 minutes away, instead of 8 hours. Hubs and I got on the road after 7am and headed up. We made a couple of stops and finally made it into the […]

The time it was about origin stories

The time it was about origin stories

As soon as I saw that Kami Garcia had written an X-Files origin book, I was in. Especially since the launch party was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy. And when Macmillan contacted me to moderate, my fangirl heart almost exploded. As always, we got to the store early. I ran amok, chatted with the awesome employees, and ransacked the super secret back room. Hubs just hung out. The Macmillan publicist, Kelsey, got to the store and I introduced myself […]

So any time I see that Jennifer Niven is going to be within a driving distance away from me, I always try to go. And when I saw that she was going to be doing an event with Jay Asher, it was a sure sure thing. The day of was a hot mess. Hubs was not able to leave work as early as he expected, it started raining, and traffic was a mess. I was sort of freaking out because […]

The time I got a headstone

The time I got a headstone

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. Seeing them at Mysterious Galaxy with Marie Lu is just a bonus. I was able to call in and get our numbers before hand, so we got to the store after 4pm and sort of settled in. Well, we ran around in the back room, where I lost my mind over this… …and got some chocolate mouse at the delicious bakery. Chairs were put out early because the store […]

The time it was about pink

As soon as I saw that Gretchen McNeil and Kasie West we’re going to be touring together, it was a definite thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I grabbed some Starbucks and got on the freeway around 10am. The plan was to get to Pasadena early and grab lunch, but traffic didn’t actually let that happen. But, we did see this: …so there’s that. We got to Vroman’s around 1:15. We grabbed front row seats, bought books, and settled in to read. […]
