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 […]

LA Times Festival of Books is always a sure thing. Well, that’s not entirely true since I didn’t go last year. However, once I saw that Emery Lord was going to be there, I put it on the calendar. As always, we got to the USC campus early. We like to park in a specific lot that is cheap {$12!} and close to the YA stage {where I spend most of my day}. I was able to have a morning […]

The time I was the moderator {2}

The time I was the moderator {2}

When I got the email from Maryelizabeth from Mysterious Galaxy asking if I wanted to be the moderator for the Penguin Teen on Tour stop, I immediately said yes.  I was super scared excited to be able to talk with the authors who were touring and couldn’t wait to flail all over them. Michelle and I got to the bookstore at our normal time {stupid early for normal people} and we ended up taking all of the swag and the […]

Seeing Veronica Rossi for Riders was a sure thing. Having the event with Mary Pearson and Kiersten White was an added bonus. Michelle, Keiko and I got to Mysterious Galaxy super early, as always. We grabbed some food and headed back to the store for shenanigans and back room raiding before settling into the front row to wait. Mary found us first and came over to say hi and say that our seats were reserved. She hugged us before going […]

The time it was all about writing

The time it was all about writing

I had heard all sorts of good things about Victoria Schwab’s books, so even though I hadn’t read them, we couldn’t pass up the chance to go to the signing. Michelle and I got to Habit to meet for our regular food date. We met Keiko and Sharon and then headed to Mysterious Galaxy for some light shenanigans. The ladies came out just after 7:30 and each author introduced themselves and the book they were there for. Kiersten acted as […]

The time we held up the line

The time we held up the line

Sooz has always been one of my favorite people and authors and so of course when I saw she was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy for Truthwitch, it was a sure thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I met up early for delicious food and Starbucks. We went back to the store around 4pm to hang out and just run amok. They made the mistake of letting us go in the back room and take some pretties. I almost had a […]
