The time it was a monthly recap {32}

The time it was a monthly recap {32}

I can’t believe we’re already in April.  I know I say this every recap, but it always seems like I just did last month’s recap.  Maybe it’s the procrastinator in me because these posts take forever to draft. Anyhoo, ready for the March recap? Settle in. Last month, I read a total of 21 books. Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff — 5 stars Claim Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates — 3 stars Second Chance Charmer by Brighton […]

The time there was a sing-along

The time there was a sing-along

Going to see Gayle Forman is always a given.  I have loved all of her books and after reading I Have Lost My Way, I couldn’t wait to hear her talk about it. As always, we got to the store early.  We got our books and then headed over to Starbucks and Target and to grab something to eat.  We went back to the store about a hour before it started and ran amok, as usual. Gayle came out […]

The time there was fake candlelight

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. When I saw they were coming back to Mysterious Galaxy, I couldn’t buy my signing line ticket fast enough. On the day of the event, we got to the store at our usual time, hugged all of our favorites and then got some delicious noodles and pastries.  When we got back to the store, we flapped our books, made the epic decision of what post-its to use and […]

The time it was fine

So when I saw Ashley Poston was going to be at Mysterious Galaxy I think I screamed.  My love for Geekerella is overwhelming and I was insanely excited. We got to the store early, as usual and ran amok chatted with the awesome booksellers and bought some new pretties. The store started to fill up pretty quickly and Ashley and Kiersten White came out right at 7pm. Now, I’m going to be super honest here: this is not all […]

The time there was talk of killing a man

I saw the Tahereh Mafi event announced one night when I was at Mysterious Galaxy for a different event. The staff had just printed the tickets and we all pre-ordered our books. We got down to the store early, as usual. The store had something different set up for the audience. To try and avoid spoilers, readers were asked to submit questions and they would be chosen and answered. Marie and Tahereh got to the store at 6:45 or […]

The time they weren’t on tour together

The time they weren’t on tour together

Seeing Susan Dennard is always a sure thing.  If she comes to the west coast, I’m going to figure out how to see her.  I had seen the announcement that she would be in LA, but an event was announced at Mysterious Galaxy the next day and I was so excited.  Even better that Holly Black was going to be with her. I had purchased a signed copy of  The Cruel Prince from MG, so I was able to […]
