The time it was a monthly recap {17}

Where has all of the time gone? HOW IS IT ALREADY NOVEMBER? I don’t understand how time is going by so so so quickly.  Now that Halloween is over, it’s a downhill slide to Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I’m not even prepared for that. Ready to settle in? In October, I read a total of 32 books. {Click on the covers for my review on GR} I got to beta read Cashmere for Temple West {which doesn’t have a cover} and […]

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. […]

I think it’s well known that I’m a spoiled brat.  And A.G. Howard helps with that title.  I was able to read RoseBlood right after she finished the manuscript and when it came time for the tour, I was thrilled to be asked to review. Before we get to my hot mess of flailing review, let’s check out the book. Title: RoseBlood Author: A.G. Howard Release Date: January 10, 2017 Pages: 432 Publisher: Amulet Books Find it: Abrams | Indiebound […]

The time it was about Morganville

The time it was about Morganville

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Morganville series and when Rachel from Beauty and the Bookshelf asked if I wanted to be part of the blog tour celebrating the 10th anniversary, I said yes. I’ll be completely honest: I haven’t read the series. They’ve been on my TBR for a long time, but I just haven’t had a chance to get to them.  And there are so many books in the series with intriguing covers, I’m surprised […]

The time it was about The Midnight Star

I’ve been a fan of Marie Lu’s books from the very beginning.  And while I loved the Prodigy series, I have an unhealthy love for The Young Elites series.  So when I got the invitation to be part of the blog tour for The Midnight Star, I couldn’t respond to the email fast enough. Before I share my top five reasons to read TYE, let’s check out the book. Title: The Midnight Star Author: Marie Lu Release Date: October 11, […]
