News!

  • I hope everyone had a happy Valentine's day! I know I did. I went to a V-day book signing with Kimberly Pauley, Kristina Springer and Kristin Walker. There was a lot of goodies and it was fun to see Kristina trying to convince people to come over and have some freebies. I got my ARC of A Match Made in High School signed and then Kimberly signed an ARC of her 2nd book Still Sucks to Be Me - I saw on her blog that she was going to have a few copies with her. I was the only blogger/fan who showed up and we stayed for a good hour and a half. Kristina was successful at getting some other people to come over and a few even bought some of the books! :-D
  • Then, my hubby and I went out for dinner and off to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians - which was pretty good. :)
  • Here's a few pics of the signing:






My hubby and me! :)
(Yep, our first V-day married!!!)

  1. Is this your first time through the Sisterhood books? I loved them! My teenage sister and I read them together.

  5. Wow you had some great books to read this week! So jealous that you got to read Jekel Loves Hyde! I can't wait to read that one or A Match Made in High School. I liked Meridian. I hope you enjoy your books.

  6. I read Syren a few weeks ago. I was a little bit lost because I didn't read the beginning of the series.

    Here is mine

  7. I really want to read Magyk. I even went so far as buying it for my 11-year-old cousin with plans of borrowing it, but I haven't gotten around to that part yet! Enjoy your books!

  10. I can't wait to read your review of A Cinderella Society. I just got it as a review copy, but haven't tackled it yet.

    I also just got Meridian from the library. I love ghost stories and as soon as I finish some review copies I have to do first, I will be reading that one. I had my eye on that one for a while.

    Great list of books! Happy reading!

  12. Wow, you had a good reading week, and the book signing sounds like fun!

    My son enjoyed Magyk.

    I finished Everwild by Neil Shusterman, the sequel to Everlost - a wonderful series!

    I just started Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger - strange characters so far but I had trouble putting it down last night!

  13. I have read such good things about 13 Reasons Why. It is always fun to go to book signings and meet authors.

  14. I really want to read Meridian, but have heard some mixed reviews. Can't wait to read what you thought of it.

  15. I enjoyed the traveling pants - in fact my book club decided to read this several years ago for our July selection (to channel our preteen children, we met for chips, salsa and drinks to discuss it). A great memory!

  16. What a great event to go to! It looks like you guys had a blast!

    I'm really looking forward to hearing what you think about Meridian. Have a great week!

  19. You and your hubby are so adorable!

    Can't wait for your reviews to post :-)

  20. I always admire those bloggers that can read so many books in one week.

    I had a very difficult time with 13 Reasons because of the fact that I teach teens and this message, and this character is not someone who I want to deal with when I'm trying to find reading material for struggling readers. Still, a lot of people like it.

    Happy reading week.
    Here's my week

  21. I wish I could read multiple books in a week.

    Happy reading.

  23. So jealous you got to meet those authors! By the way, I think you meant "A Match Made in High School" not heaven, in one of the mentions above!

    Can't wait to see your reviews of Match and Cinderella. Just got Cinderella in the mail this weekend!

  26. You and the hubs are so cute! Thanks for coming out and keeping us company. I was such a zombie that day. Even the steady ingestion of Kimberly's chocolate didn't help. But it didn't hurt, either. haha.

    I hope we run into each other again soon!
