The time we helped set up

The time we helped set up

Going to anything with Mary Pearson is always a given.  I’ve been to her launch parties for The Kiss of Deception and The Heart of Betrayal, so going for The Beauty of Darkness was a sure thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I got to the library around 5pm.  We were supposed to be interviewing Mary before the event started.  When we checked in with the library staff, no one knew anything about it and told us that the even space didn’t […]

The time it was SDCC 2016

The time it was SDCC 2016

Going to San Diego Comic-Con is not always a sure thing, but it has been for the last 20 years.  And even though I’m seriously showing my age here, it has been so much fun watching SDCC evolve and change and get bigger.  The first year we went, we walked right up to the door, paid $10, and walked in.  Now everything from badges, to hotels to parking is all done online. For the past 2 years, I’ve been lucky […]

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 […]
