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 light universe

The time it was a light universe

So any time I see that Jennifer Niven is going to be within a driving distance away from me, I always try to go. And when I saw that she was going to be doing an event with Jay Asher, it was a sure sure thing. The day of was a hot mess. Hubs was not able to leave work as early as he expected, it started raining, and traffic was a mess. I was sort of freaking out because […]

The time I was given more foreign copies

The time I was given more foreign copies

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 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 {4}

The time it was the Top 10 of 2015 {4}

Here we are for the fourth day of the Top 10 list! Today’s topic is: Best Book Boyfriends. The rule for this list is that the choices had to be from books that were released and read in 2015. As we all know, this is a subject near and dear to my heart…Okay, to be totally honest, I am a book slut and I have a harem of book boyfriends. Here are the lovelies I adored this year. Theodore Finch […]

The time it was incomplete

The time it was incomplete

Any time Jennifer Niven is doing a signing in SoCal, I’m going to try to go. When I saw the date at The Grove, it was a sure thing. Even more so when all of the foreign copies of All the Bright Places I ordered showed up before the signing. Turns out her appearance was part of a panel for More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera, so I was extra excited because I’ve heard so many good things about […]

The time I wasn’t murdered

The time I wasn’t murdered

I found out about Jennifer Niven doing an signing at Glendale Library on accident. I was meeting Keiko at the Jessi Kirby signing and happened to see a conversation between Keiko and Jennifer about it. And just like that we were planning a trip. Keiko picked me up and we got up to the library early. Like almost 3 hours early. We went there first to see if they were selling books and just to check out the event area. […]
