The time I was considered family

The time I was considered family

When Leigh’s launch party for Wonder Woman was announced, I was definitely interested. The only problem is that anything wristbanded at The Grove is sort of a mess for me. It takes a lot of work to get up there at the opening time. I was able to see Leigh at SDCC and we talked about the event. I told her that I was going to try to come up and she said she would save me a seat. Flash […]

I don’t think it’s a secret that Caraval by Stephanie Garber was my favorite book of 2016. So when her tour dates were announced, going to the launch party in San Francisco seemed like a great idea. Even though she was going to be in Pasadena, which is about 90 minutes away, instead of 8 hours. Hubs and I got on the road after 7am and headed up. We made a couple of stops and finally made it into the […]

The time it was about origin stories

The time it was about origin stories

As soon as I saw that Kami Garcia had written an X-Files origin book, I was in. Especially since the launch party was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy. And when Macmillan contacted me to moderate, my fangirl heart almost exploded. As always, we got to the store early. I ran amok, chatted with the awesome employees, and ransacked the super secret back room. Hubs just hung out. The Macmillan publicist, Kelsey, got to the store and I introduced myself […]

Going to the launch party for Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven was a definite. Michelle and I had planned to go, but she went to Disneyland with family instead {totally valid reason}, so I got Hubs to drive. We started the drive to Santa Monica around 2:15. Traffic is always a hot mess and we’d rather have time to kill than be late. Apparently there was a shooting earlier in the day at the exit we needed. Even […]

The time we helped set up

Going to anything with Mary Pearson is always a given.  I’ve been to her launch parties for The Kiss of Deception and The Heart of Betrayal, so going for The Beauty of Darkness was a sure thing. Michelle, Keiko, and I got to the library around 5pm.  We were supposed to be interviewing Mary before the event started.  When we checked in with the library staff, no one knew anything about it and told us that the even space didn’t […]

The time we were practically co-workers

The time we were practically co-workers

Going to see Kiersten White for her And I Darken launch party was a sure thing. And when Marie Lu was announced as joining her, Michelle and I couldn’t have been more excited. We got to the store around 4 or so. David came up to us and showed us this new suggestion book they had in the store and urged Michelle and I to add to it. We started with 5 and then we found that 5 wasn’t enough. […]

The time I fixed the markers

The time I fixed the markers

Hubs and I have always been big Blink-182 fans. We went to one of their concerts on our first date and with Mark and Tom being from San Diego, we couldn’t help but love them. We’ve met Travis a few times at a music convention, but once I found out that he was going to be signing his new book at The Grove, we planned to go. We got up to the store, got our book, wristbands, and after a […]
