The time the ocean met the stars

The time the ocean met the stars

I was “introduced” to Darcy Woods by Christina. I read Summer of Supernovas, fell in love with Grant the story and just happened to see that she was going to be at MG. So of course we had to go. Michelle and I met up at the store at our usual time {aka early} and found ourselves running amok in the store. Darcy, Marisa Reichardt and Sarah Tomp got to the store just before 7pm. They were introduced by Sam […]

The time it was about a backwards book

The time it was about a backwards book

As I’ve said a zillion times, All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda is one of my top books of 2016.  So when I saw that she was going to be coming to MG, I squee’d like a little girl and made definite plans to go. Hubs and I got to the store early at our usual time and chatted with Rob and Sam and Kelly.  I tried to sell Hamilton to someone {he wasn’t having it at all} and […]

The time we were practically co-workers

The time we were practically co-workers

Going to see Kiersten White for her And I Darken launch party was a sure thing. And when Marie Lu was announced as joining her, Michelle and I couldn’t have been more excited. We got to the store around 4 or so. David came up to us and showed us this new suggestion book they had in the store and urged Michelle and I to add to it. We started with 5 and then we found that 5 wasn’t enough. […]

The time they saved me wristbands

The time they saved me wristbands

I had just seen Nina LaCour at YallWest when I found out that she was going to be at The Grove with David Levithan for You Know Me Well. I put it on the calendar and monitored The Grove event page to see if the event would become wristbanded. Since we live in San Diego and wristbands go on sale at 9am, we often skip events at The Grove. Mostly because we usually can’t take an entire day off from […]

The time we were almost late, but not really

The time we were almost late, but not really

Even though we had just had the opportunity to see all four of the Fierce Reads ladies at YallWest, Michelle and I still decided to go. For me, I was super excited to see Marie and flail all over her for The Winner’s Kiss. Traffic was a nightmare. We left San Diego at 1 and didn’t get to Pasadena until after 4. Past experience with this store has shown that if you’re not in the event area by 4, there’s […]

The time I didn’t have a title {2}

The time I didn’t have a title {2}

When it was announced that Amy Tintera, Debra Driza, and Shannon Messenger were going to be at Mysterious Galaxy, it was a sure thing. And then Roshani Chokshi was announced and I nearly lost my mind in excitement. I got down to the store around 5pm. With just coming off of YallWest and Fierce Reads the the next day, Michelle and Keiko weren’t planning on going. Keiko ended up coming down to hang out, and then decided to stay. We […]

The time it was about YallWest {2}

The time it was about YallWest {2}

Michelle and I went to YallWest last year and we knew it was going to be a sure thing this year too. We ended up getting a hotel and going up with Keiko and another friend. Because there were so many authors attending this year {170 in comparison to 60 last year}, we decided to each make a top 5 must-see list. That way it sort of helped with how many books we took {it didn’t} and regulated where we […]
