The time it was about The Language of Thorns

The time it was about The Language of Thorns

When I got the invite to be part of the “unconventional” blog tour for The Language of Thorns, I said yes before I even finished reading the email.  I mean, it’s Leigh + Fierce Reads, so I knew it would be something fun and amazing. The Language of Thorns is all about fairy tales, folklore, and mythical creatures in the Grishaverse.  And to celebrate the release day of TLoT, today I will be sharing my favorite creatures from the movie […]

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 […]

The time it was about SDCC 2017

I don’t think it’s a secret how much I love SDCC. I spend allllllll year waiting for it and things go in stages: pre-reg, open reg, press reg, and parking. Once all of those are completed, it’s only a few months that seem to take forever before the convention is actually here. Preview night We got downtown around 4pm, met up with Michelle and her husband, and carried on with our yearly preview night tradition: carne asada fries at Lolita’s. […]

The time it was about YallWest {3}

The time it was about YallWest {3}

Michelle and I have gone to YallWest since it started, so it’s sort of a given that we’ll go.  This year, instead of being an evening event and two full days, it was only Friday night and Saturday.  We were a bit wary, but had tickets for Friday and our books flapped and ready to go. On Friday, Keiko, Michelle, and I headed up towards LA around 10am.  We ended up making several stops: Target, Starbucks, Downtown Disney…you know, normal […]

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

When the Fierce Reads tour was announced, it wasn’t coming to California. It was coming to Arizona and I debated going. I love Leigh like crazy, but she’s in LA, so I knew I would see her eventually. My main draw was Emma Mills. The week before the event Keiko said she would go with me…and that solidified going. We left Cali at 7am and made it to the state line just after 9am. We stopped at a Starbucks and […]

The time it was about Crooked Kingdom

The time it was about Crooked Kingdom

I think it’s pretty clear that I have an unhealthy amount of adoration for Leigh Bardugo and her words. I mean, I got a Six of Crows tattoo and she officially welcomed me to the Dregs. She’s feisty and fun and I almost lose my shit every time I see her.  So it goes without saying that when I got the email from Macmillan asking if I wanted to be a part of the blog tour for Crooked Kingdom, I […]

The time it was SDCC 2016

The time it was SDCC 2016

Going to San Diego Comic-Con is not always a sure thing, but it has been for the last 20 years.  And even though I’m seriously showing my age here, it has been so much fun watching SDCC evolve and change and get bigger.  The first year we went, we walked right up to the door, paid $10, and walked in.  Now everything from badges, to hotels to parking is all done online. For the past 2 years, I’ve been lucky […]
