Bookish Events: The Problem With Forever – JLA in Philly

Bookish Events: The Problem With Forever – JLA in Philly

Bookish Events 1

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Bookish Events post and that’s partly because there haven’t been many to go to and also because I’ve been lazy to post it, lol. Anyways, yesterday was a JLA event for her newest release, The Problem With Forever, and it was so awesome that she had a tour stop in Philly since it’s been a couple months since I last saw her. I… Read more »

Bookish Events: The Boldly Bookish Tour

Bookish Events 2

So, the lovely ladies of the Boldly Bookish tour: Tiffany Schmidt, Trish Doller, AC Gaughen, and Emery Lord visited Books of Wonder last week and I decided to stop by and actually meet them all. I’ve met Tiffany a few times in the past, but I’ve been a fan of Trish’s for awhile and I wanted to meet Emery. I have yet to read anything by Tiffany, which I know,… Read more »

Bookish Events: ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas

Bookish Events 2

I’m SO late at posting this, but I did want to write this post for the recent launch party of Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses at B&N Neshaminy in Philly. Sarah told fans about important ACOTAR is to her. There were laughs. There were tears. It was just an all-around amazing time. Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner was an excellent moderator. I loved hanging out with… Read more »

Bookish Events: ApollyCon 2015

Bookish Events: ApollyCon 2015

Bookish Events 8

I am SO late in getting this post up, but better late than never. ApollyCon was definitely an event to remember. Even though I’ve volunteered for events in the past, I’ve never really been THAT in on the action. This time though, especially on the actual event day, I was practically Damaris’ right-hand girl. Overall, I think the event was a success. Yes, there were some kinks, especially with the… Read more »

Bookish Events – Black Ice Tour

Bookish Events – Black Ice Tour

Bookish Events 2

It has been quite awhile since I’ve been to a bookish event, and even longer since I did a recap! I’m slowly, but surely, getting back into reading and the blogosphere, so bear with me! Anyways, this week I attended the Black Ice tour while here in MD. Black Ice is the newest novel from Hush, Hush author, Becca Fitzpatrick. She’s been touring for the book for some time now… Read more »

Bookish Events: YA Fest 2014

Bookish Events: YA Fest 2014

Bookish Events 3

So YA Fest, which is pretty much the biggest book event in PA, happened yesterday and it was pretty good. I loved attending last year and I had fun this year, too. Despite the fact that not as many authors I like were there, it was still a great event with a ton of people. They hosted close to 50 MG & YA authors! Easily my favorite part of the… Read more »

Bookish Events – The Sentinel Release Party

Bookish Events 6

This past weekend was crazy awesome because SHP hosted the Sentinel/Frigid Release party in Philly. Not only was nice to see Jen and Kate (from SHP) again, quite a few of my blogger friends showed up, as well as some new ones, and some friends and family came. A lot of fans came out to this event, many of them came hours before the event even started! Talk about dedicated!… Read more »

Bookish Events: Kami Garcia at B&N in Bethesda

Bookish Events: Kami Garcia at B&N in Bethesda

Bookish Events 1

I have finally met the other half to the Beautiful Creatures team and I have to say that I adore her just as much as Margaret Stohl. She’s witty and funny with just a hint of snark. Plus, she tells it like it is, which is quality I highly admire. I loved learning how she and Margaret met, how they wrote the book, and the steps leading up the movie…. Read more »

Bookish Events: Marissa Meyer at the Bethesda Library

Bookish Events 4

I had the amazing chance to finally meet Marissa Meyer, author of Cinder & Scarlet, last Tuesday at the Bethesda Library for her Scarlet tour. It was awesome! Not only is she so pretty, she’s freaking hilarious, a super-geek, and a Sailor Moon fan! That alone makes her freaking amazing in my book! I’m a total Moonie! Marissa gave us the background story of how she came up with Cinder,… Read more »

She is so hilarious, fun, energetic, and quirky. And guess what? She actually knew who I was!!! SHOCKED!!! Totally fangirled on her. She remembered me from Twitter and pointed that out to me, which totally made me love her more…. Read more »
