We all know of my undying love for Sarah J Maas, yes? Well, once upon a time, she went on tour with Susan Dennard, Erin Bowman and Kat Zhang as part of the YA Authors Give Back tour. Unfortunately, they weren't coming anywhere near me. However, Jaime & Erin were going to one of the stops and awesomely let me send them some stuff.
Now, there is a serious back story. Once upon a time on Twitter, Sarah tweeted this article to Susan about the mantis shrimp and how it was her new favorite animal. After reading it, I jumped into the conversation [seriously, sometimes it's soooo hard not to jump in] and said that I liked any animal that had "murder sticks". Sarah came back and said that she liked anything that is referred to as an "undersea nightmare".
And that leads us to an even later conversation on Twitter about me telling Sarah that at some point, I was going to ask her to sign my book as an undersea nightmare.
Which brings us to what could be the greatest inscription ever. Not only did Sarah sign the book as my undersea nightmare, but Susan and Sarah both drew pictures of a mantis shrimp.
I don't have an amazing story for Erin Bowman, I wish I did. But, like I said above, Jaime & Erin were awesome to take my copy of Taken to get signed. Even Erin knows they're awesome, she mentions it in the inscription! I can't wait to meet Erin for myself one day.
I borrowed Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea from Michelle. I instantly fell in love with
I read the Goddess trilogy in a day. I loved the story [and Henry] and Kate [and Henry] and definitely wanted to include Aimee's books to the collection. Luckily, Aimee was just about to go on tour, so I called an indie bookstore that she would be appearing at and ordered all three books.
Unfortunately, when I got the books, I didn't get the entire trilogy. I got The Goddess Test [book 1], The Goddess Inheritance [book 3] and The Goddess Legacy [a book of novellas set in the Goddess world]. I called the store I ordered them from and they weren't open to fixing the situation. Thankfully, I was able to find Goddess Interrupted at a different store that held a tour stop. Now I just have to meet Aimee to get it personalized.
Have we all determined by now that I'm the most spoiled brat in the bunch? Wheeeeeeeee!!
