The time I was talked into more books

The time I was talked into more books

When the Dark Days tour was posted, I had “leg 1” authors taken care of and Jennifer had “leg 2” taken care of and then we swapped. Thankfully, before she went to her tour stop, Mysterious Galaxy announced a date with Debra. With Shannon Messenger, Robin Benway and Chris Howard. So of course I was going. Michelle wasn’t able to come out and play, so I forced Hubs to come with me. We got there early, as always. I ended […]

The time it was a full day of crazy

It might not be a well known fact that I am a Twilight fan.  Yes, I did midnight shows for all of the movies [and the marathon for the BD2].  Yes, I have multiple copies of the books [paperback, hardcover, movie tie in, UK paperback]. Yes, we did one of the Hot Topic tours with the cast [unfortunately, not the one with Rob]. No, I didn’t see them in Hall H. Either way, it goes without saying that as soon […]

The time it was about angels

The time it was about angels

I fell in serious cover love when I saw Illuminate by Aimee Agresti. I got my hands on an arc and was instantly transported.  The setting is lush, the story is fascinating and the characters are interesting.  Not to mention there are two swoony boys!When the sequel, Infatuate, came out, I devoured it.  I needed more Lance of the story and I couldn’t wait to delve back into the world Aimee created.  And it didn’t disappoint… Haven Terra is still recovering […]

The time there were gourmet treats

The time there were gourmet treats

When I saw that Shannon Messenger’s launch party was going to be at MG, it was a no-brainer. Then I met her at an event with Kiersten White and Kasie West and she mentioned cupcakes and it was a definite thing. I met Michelle at Starbucks for our regular pre-signing coffee date ritual.  And she spoiled me with arcs from Caitlin [an arc of Unbecoming? EEEEEEEEEEE!!!] and the first two Amy Plum books to complete my collection. Michelle and I […]

The time it was a teen panel

The LA public library has been having teen panels for a while and I never had a chance to actually attend one. Somehow I saw the post about the one year anniversary and was interested in going after seeing that it would be Amy Spalding, Michelle Gagnon, Jessica Brody and Sarah Skilton. I checked with the authors [and the library] to see if there would be a signing afterwards. While there wouldn’t be anything formal, I was told that the […]

The time it was all about Ben Michaels

Have we all learned by now about my love for all things Elizabeth Norris and Ben Michaels? After countless posts about both of them, I feel like this is information that is well known. After I won the arc for Unbreakable, I really wanted to do something with Elizabeth.  She’s always so so so nice and so so so amazing.  Somehow I got it in my head to ask for an interview and she said yes!! But, before we get […]
