s&s 1200

I have had the esteem pleasure of meeting Victoria Scott at several signings throughout 2015 and I must say she gets better and better every time I see her. I first met her at Montgomery County Book Festival in Conroe, TX and the last time I hung out with her smiling self was at RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas, TX. She is so much fun to hang around that I almost considered skipping the convention just so I could play her assistant for the day. Alas, the day did not go that way. That did not stop hundreds and hundreds of eager readers from flocking to her table for a signature and/or a photo with this charming lass. Not to mention, that most of the authors wanted to sit next to her just to chat. That should tell you something! read more

Rainbow Rowell

When I first picked up Attachments, I knew nothing about it or the author. Fast forward to Fangirl, and it was one of my most anticipated books of this year. She has quickly become one of my favourite authors as her books just have all the feels I ever want to experience from writing. read more
