The time it was by candlelight

The time it was by candlelight

When I saw that Amie and Jay were coming to San Diego for Illuminae, it was a definite thing. Add the fact that Leigh was also going to be at the event and I was prepared to take the day off and camp out in front of the store. Michelle and I met up super early to have snacks and catch up since it had been a while we had seen each other. We got back to Mysterious Galaxy around […]

I was asked to be the moderator for the event with Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff, and Victoria Aveyard and was completely surprised. Even though I was mildly petrified about doing it {you would think with as much as I don’t shut up, it wouldn’t be a problem}, I just had to say yes. The day of the event, we got to Huntington Beach a couple hours early. Because traffic. I met up with the events manager, Jeanne, and we chatted […]

The time it was worth the wait

When I saw the announcement that Jandy Nelson was coming to San Diego, I nearly lost my mind. I’ve been a fan of Jandy’s since I read The Sky is Everywhere and I didn’t get a chance to see her at this year’s LATFoB. Needless to say, I was going. Unfortunately, Michelle and Keiko couldn’t make it, so I coerced Hubs into going with before he met up with some friends for a concert. We got to the library around […]

When I saw that Gena Showalter was going to be coming to San Diego, it was a sure thing. And as soon as I saw that Amy Lukavics was going to be with her, I was so so so excited because Daughters Unto Devils was amazing. Keiko and I got to Mysterious Galaxy stupid early, so we just settled into our squishy chairs and chatted. I also found the Twitter poll option and asked a very important question. I went […]

The time we were not in the priority line

The time we were not in the priority line

When Marie Lu announced her tour dates for The Rose Society, I wasn’t going to be able to go to the dates she had listed. Then a San Diego event was listed and hooray!! Michelle, Keiko, and I met up for delicious foods and then headed over to the library. We took one car because the parking lot looked small and the additional parking lots had “walking trails” to get to them. I figured that was a horror movie waiting […]

Hubs and I have always been big Blink-182 fans. We went to one of their concerts on our first date and with Mark and Tom being from San Diego, we couldn’t help but love them. We’ve met Travis a few times at a music convention, but once I found out that he was going to be signing his new book at The Grove, we planned to go. We got up to the store, got our book, wristbands, and after a […]

The time we met a horror master

The time we met a horror master

We saw that John Carpenter was doing at signing at The Grove and we definitely wanted to go. We got married on Halloween {on purpose} and walked into our reception to the theme music from the movie Halloween. We got up to the store and bought the graphic novel and then wandered around The Grove to kill time. We ended up getting snacks at the Cheesecake Factory. We got back to the store just before 1pm, and found some other […]
