Ontario Teen Book Fest Recap

Ontario Teen Book Fest Recap

Hi, everyone. This post is a bit late. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Ontario Teen Book Fest which is a local(ish) event held near me every year on Ontario, CA. It’s a really fun event that is always well organized and has great authors. They also give you lunch, which gives them extra points in my book. This isn’t going to be a real recap. It’s more of an excuse to post some of the pics that I took during the event. I hung out with my pals from The Reader’s Antidote and… Read more »

Hi, everyone! I hope the week is going fantastic. It’s actually really flying by which is nice. Is it just me or do you start counting down the days until the weekend on Monday? Maybe it’s just me but I do love the weekend. This week was broken up by a really fun author event. Barnes & Noble at the Americana hosted Abbi Glines and Tammara Webber on May 6, 2014. Even though I left work a little early, it still took me over an hour to get there (grrr LA traffic). First things first though, I went and got dinner… Read more »

LA Times Festival of Books – Day 1 Recap

Hello! If you follow me on Intagram or Twitter, you may have noticed that this past weekend was the annual LA Times Festival of Books, aka Bookchella, aka Festival of Buying too many books, lugging them home and sneaking them inside. That last one is from my friend Kimberly. It’s a really fun but tiring event held on campus at the University of Southern California. Sometimes I only go for one day but this year’s line-up was too good and was there for the majority of both days. This year’s fest was heavily YA oriented for me. I am going to… Read more »

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a signing by Elizabeth Wein for her new book Rose Under Fire. The signing was at Once Upon a Time in Montrose, CA which is a great little store. I met up early with @frootjoos, @thewindypages and @alybee930 to dinner beforehand and then settled into our front row seats. Elizabeth came out in a rockin’ vintage style polka dot dress with great red shoes. I didn’t get a shot of the shoes but Aly did and you can see them in her recap.

LA Times Festival of Books Recap – 2013 Edition

LA Times Festival of Books Recap – 2013 Edition

This post is (more than) a little bit overdue. I look forward to the LA Times Festival of Books every year. I mean, what’s more fun than a giant, free book festival? This year was a little different for me than previous years. I didn’t have a big agenda or a large list of panels or authors I wanted to see. I kind of wanted to just go and wing it. I was meeting some fun, bookish friends there and I was excited to just hang out and see what caught my eye. I only went on Saturday this year,… Read more »
