Weekly Recap 7/27/2014 and New York Author Occasion 2014 Recap


Life. Is. Busy. I am so incredibly busy at work as it is once again busy season aka I need it to be August 7th already so this can be over season. So as you may have noticed, things are a bit slower on the blog and I'm also getting less books. But I did get a few fun ones this week. And while it is busy season and I am working weekends as well, I squeezed in some time to make sure I attended the New York Author Occasion because Samantha Young and Nicole Williams were going to be there and I NEEDED to meet them! Really glad I made time for that because I had a blast. But first, let's recap the books I got during the week. I grabbed Her Mad Hatter which is a novella and an Alice In Wonderland twist so of course I needed it and best of all IT WAS FREE. Thanks to Brandee from Bookworm Brandee for introducing me to this one. I also grabbed The Wedding Wager and Inevitable because they were free. I am on the blog tour for Flawed and am really excited to continue with that series, such a cool dystopian world. Then came time for the signing and I had so much fun! I finally got to meet Nicole Williams and I may have fangirled a bit and I also got to meet Samantha Young which was amazing! Gots tons of goodies signed and a whole bunch of swag. I was pretty good and only got books signed that I already had BUT while I was there I had to pick up Taint because MY GOSH THAT COVER and I also kept eyeing Making Faces so I ended up picking up that one as well. The event was organized really well and it wasn't overly crowded so everyone was able to spend time with the authors. Also, my Elsa shirt was a hit, which I never expected. And to top it off I got to see some of my minxes.

This is an award free blog. I truly appreciate the thought but I simply do not have the time. Comments are an award all on their own =]
