The time it was not by candlelight

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner is always a sure thing.  I love these two ladies and their books and there’s absolutely no way I would ever miss them coming within 500 miles of me.  So when it was announced they were coming to Mysterious Galaxy for Unearthed, I couldn’t add it to my calendar fast enough. Hubs and I met Michelle at Habit for our pre-game ritual before heading over to the bookstore.  We chatted up our favorite booksellers, […]

The time it was about Illuminae {2}

The time it was about Illuminae {2}

I’ve been a fan of Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff for a while now.  I’ve had the delight of seeing them several times on tour {I even moderated one of their events!} and somehow every time I see them it’s more fun than the time before.  So when I got the email about the paperback tour for Illuminae, I couldn’t sign up fast enough. Before we get to the interview with Amie and Jay, let’s check out the book! Title: Illuminae […]

The time it was the Top 10 of 2016 {4}

So here we are for the last day! I still need to go around and see what everyone else’s lists have been. Today’s topic is Top 10 Books I’m looking forward to in 2017. Since this was literally just a topic for TTT, I poached most a lot of the titles from there because this is legit hard, yo. 1. A Conjuring of Light by Victoria Schwab — This is my #1 want. Let’s just fast forward January and get […]

The time it was the Top 10 of 2016 {3}

Here we are for day 4 of the Top 10 of 2016.  I completely forgot to draft yesterday’s post and didn’t even realize it! Today’s topic is: Best Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends of 2016.  This list had to have books released and read in 2016. 1. Jordy from Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes — Jordy has a great sense of humor and he loves California burritos. I’m in. 2. Thomas from Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco — I […]

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 YallWest {2}

The time it was about YallWest {2}

Michelle and I went to YallWest last year and we knew it was going to be a sure thing this year too. We ended up getting a hotel and going up with Keiko and another friend. Because there were so many authors attending this year {170 in comparison to 60 last year}, we decided to each make a top 5 must-see list. That way it sort of helped with how many books we took {it didn’t} and regulated where we […]

The time it was the Top 10 of 2015 {2}

Here we are for the second day of the Top 10 of 2015! Today’s topic is: Best Book Covers of 2015 For this one, it didn’t have to be a book that I read in 2015, but it did have to be released this year. Check out these beauties!   Honorable mention {AKA: I couldn’t possibly pick only 10}   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was way harder to come up with than yesterday’s best reads list. I could have easily listed more. […]
