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 a monthly recap {29}

You guys. It’s now December.  2017 is almost over and I can’t believe it… Somehow I forgot to do a recap for October.  Well, not “somehow”.  We went on a roadside attractions road trip for the last week and a half of the month and I just never got around to doing it.  So, I’m going to sort of combine the months.  {And if you want to see things like the world’s largest ball of twine or the world’s largest […]

Going to Maggie Stiefvater was always a sure thing. We ordered our tickets and were eagerly awaiting the event. I’ve met Maggie a few times at SDCC, but I’ve never heard her talk, so I was beyond excited. Keiko and I got to MG eaaaaarrrrrrly. We chatted with the lovely staff, grabbed our usual seats, and settled in to wait. The crowd started showing up around 11:30. People were buying books and milling around the store. The seats were put […]

The time it was a monthly recap {28}

You guys. It’s October and I have no idea where the year has gone.  It seems like I was just counting down to Hamilton and now I’m eagerly awaiting the three days of rain we get in SoCal and reading by the fire. As always, I digress. Settle in. Here’s the recap for September! Last month, I read a total of 22 books. {Click on the covers for my review on GR} Okay, so I DNF’d Empire of Storms and […]

Going to see Stephanie Perkins is always a sure thing.  She’s one of my favorite authors to see and just a lovely person all around. As soon as I found out that she would be in Oceanside for There’s Someone Inside Your House, it was on the calendar.  Especially since I’ve been hearing her talk about this book for so long, I was eager to hear her talk about it more in depth. Michelle and I got to the store […]

Seeing Marie Lu for Warcross was a sure thing and I forced Michelle to buy a ticket so she would come with me. I got down to the store earlier than normal and there was a local author meet and greet happening. I ended up going behind the counter and talking all things RuPaul’s Drag Race with a few of the MG employees while the event was finishing up. And then of course when Michelle showed up, there was some […]

Seeing Tamara Ireland Stone is always a given.  We have a standing date at her launch parties and I’ve driven up to San Francisco for all of them: Time Between Us, Time After Time, and Every Last Word.  This time around, Tamara told me that she would be coming to me. We got to the bookstore early enough for me to run amok, hug all of my favorite Mysterious Galaxy people, raid the back room, and peruse the YA section. […]
