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. […]

Right before I went to San Francisco for Tamara’s launch party, she told me that she would be in San Diego. I still decided to go up to SF. Fast forward to July and it was a lovely line up of my favorites. Michelle and I met at Panera for pre-pre-game. We eventually made it over to our regular bakery pre-game for goodies. We got back to the store around 6:30 and proceeded to be spoiled rotten in the back […]

Attending Ontario Teen Book Fest became a sure thing as soon as I saw that Kasie West was going to be one of the authors attending. As the event got closer, Kasie was sick, but she kept assuring me she would be there.  I got up to the library just before 2. Traffic was stupid and I couldn’t find parking because the area that was indicated by the event map was closed off. I parked in some random lot with […]

After going to VVBF last year and seeing how awesome it was, I knew to was going to be a yearly trip to make. This year’s line up was just as amazing, so I was really excited to go. We had a friend in town from London, so we were able to stay at his house. Friday night had us at the Hard Rock Hotel eating delicious food and vanilla shakes. Saturday we went to the event area fairly early […]

Going to a Gretchen McNeil signing is always a given. If I can get to her, I’m going to go. Naturally, when she had a tour date scheduled at Mysterious Galaxy with Anna Carey, it was a sure thing. I got to the store around 1pm. The parking lot was jam packed, but I was the first one there. People started coming in and I quickly claimed a seat. Gretchen got there early and of course she teased me for […]

Pasadena Teen Book Fest was something I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to attend. At my previous job, I always had to work weekends, so when it was announced with tickets, I didn’t even bother signing up. Flash forward to a week ago. I ended up losing my shiteous job and finding a new and awesome one that doesn’t require weekends. So, decided to go and stalk Gretchen McNeil see how it turned out as there was […]

Going to Vegas Valley Book Festival was pretty much a given. I heard about it from Crystal when we went to her B&N for the Fierce Reads tour in June. She had said something about it in passing and when I looked it up and saw the glorious list of authors, my head almost exploded. I slowly accumulated my books and made stacks around my office. The stacks fluctuated as authors were added and canceled….eventually, my total number of books was 47. […]
