The time it was about Reading Rewind {3}

When it came time to pick another book for this month’s Reading Rewind, it was an easy decision for Katie and I. We chose the books that started the entire conversation and sparked this feature: That’s right, we picked If I Stay and {if time was available} Where She Went.  For me, I had heard a lot about the series, but I tend to stay away from angsty books and these have angst allllllll over them.  Obviously. But, I had […]

The time it was Top Ten Tuesday {8}

The time it was Top Ten Tuesday {8}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Top Ten Resolutions for 2016 and I’m going resolve to finally read these books this year.  Although, to be honest, every time I announce my intent to read something, it’s like I jinx it. I’m going to try so so so hard to actually get to these. 1. Just One Day and Just One Year by Gayle Forman — I’ve had these […]

The time it was about friendship

The time it was about friendship

When I saw that Gayle Forman was going to be at Vroman’s, I knew I wanted to go, but wasn’t sure I was going to be able to. Hubs can’t take a lot of time off from work during the week and I didn’t really want to drive up to Pasadena by myself. Thankfully, Michelle wanted to go, so we planned a date. We got up to the store just after 5. After buying our books, we went to the […]

The time it was four colly birds

The time it was four colly birds

Colly birds? Really? I always thought it was calling birds.  Hmmm.  Well, here we are for day four of the 12 Days of Christmas giveaway!! When I had this idea, I first went to my giveaway stack to see what I had that I wanted to giveaway.  Then I made a list of authors that I wanted to contact.  I knew that not everyone was going to have the time to send me something, but out of the 12, only […]

The time I went to Berkeley

The time I went to Berkeley

I convinced Hubs to take me to San Francisco for Tamara Ireland Stone’s launch party for Time Between Us, so it only made sense [to me] that I would head back up there when Time After Time launched. He was unable to take the time off work, so I headed up alone. You think the drive to Vegas is boring? This is worse. The only good thing about it is that drivers on the 5 like to drive fast, so even […]

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

The time Lucy broke down on the 405

We were on our way to the Barnes and Noble in Huntington Beach and I was driving my MINI Cooper, Lucy. Pretty much right after merging from the toll road to the 405N, an indicator light came on warning me that my engine was too hot. We started pulling of the freeway and thankfully we did because the warning light turned red and Lucy was officially overheating. Before I even had time to call the dealer, a CHP/roadside service guy […]

The time we went to Festival of Books

The time we went to Festival of Books

I’m not going to recount my ordeals with getting information about the author panels versus author signings because I’m pretty sure everyone already knows about it. I’ve been pretty whiny about it over the last couple of weeks. Needless to say, we got up to FOB just after 11:15. We had already missed the John Green panel that we had tickets for were just trying to get to the YA panel with Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lauren Kate and DJ […]
