The time I got book plates

The time I got book plates

Once upon a time, someone retweeted a post by Megan Crewe.  She was offering personalized book plates for her new release The Way We Fall.  All you had to do was go to her website and provide an address and who it was to be made out to.  The day that I read it was the last day that she was offering it. The Way We Fall had been on my TBR list, but I hadn’t bought it yet [I’m […]

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The time Blue Willow Bookshop was so helpful

The cover of Everneath by Brodi Ashton sucked me in right away.  I ordered a copy to be signed at her launch party being held at the King’s English Bookstore [SLC, Utah]. The event was being held at the end of January. I had wanted Incarnate by Jodi Meadows pretty much right after I read the synopsis for it.  Always one to want a signed copy, I hunted her down and ended up ordering the book online at the Dark Days event […]

The time I almost left before the signing

The time I almost left before the signing

At the beginning of the month, when the Breathless Reads tour was announced, I emailed Once Upon a Time bookstore to see if it was going to be a ticketed event. Meaning you either had to spend so much money or just buy one book to get a number the corresponded to where in the line you would be. I mentioned that I lived in San Diego and planned on driving up for the event, so I wanted to make […]

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

The time Linda from Mysterious Galaxy was extra awesome

So.  A few weeks ago, Stacey Jay was tweeting back and forth with Mysterious Galaxy about her upcoming visit to San Diego and how she wanted to come into the store and sign their back stock.  Seeing that I follow both, I was privy to the entire conversation and I eagerly jumped in, first asking Stacey if she would sign my copy of Juliet Immortal that I dropped off and then asking MG if they would let me drop a […]

The time I bought a book because of a last name

The time I bought a book because of a last name

It’s no secret that I’m horribly in love with Étienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. He is the swooniest boy ever. I’ve typed his name so many times on my phone that it is now in autocorrect. [*cringes* That sounds so weird.] So. While browsing the events page for Mysterious Galaxy, I saw the author name Sara Wilson Etienne and I instantly stopped. When I read the synopsis for her book Harbinger I was intrigued. Enough […]

The time we saw people from tv

The time we saw people from tv

I’m always hesitant about going to a signing at Book Soup. The first time we went, it was a complete clusterfuck, but the second time was really good. I guess you just don’t know wtf is going to happen when it comes to organization and that’s what really bugs me. When I first saw the announcement for Shorty Rossi, I could have sworn the start time was 2pm. When we got to the bookstore, turns out it started at 4. […]

The time I succumbed to peer pressure

The time I succumbed to peer pressure

When John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars came out, it was everywhere.  I got an email from Barnes and Noble apologizing to me for sending it out early [when I didn’t even pre-order it].  I had called a bookstore about a different signing and ended up talking to the employee about how amazing it was.  Swoontini reviewed and highly recommended it.  There were two women at the Megan Miranda signing who were going on and on and on about it. […]
