The Book Diet to End All Book Diets!

Hey guys
So if you know me, you'll know that I tend to buy a lot of books. Like, a lot.
My poor husband doesn't know what to do with me. (Seriously. I feel bad for him. Because if he started collecting something like I collect books, well, he would be living in the garage.)
And I have to admit, even I get overwhelmed by the number of books I've accumulated recently.
Oh yes, lovely readers. I am going to admit it-

GIVEAWAY! Unravel Me and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Hello Book Nerds United!

How is your summer going? Are you reading a bit? I hope you are!

And here's a surprise giveaway I thought you may enjoy.
I am currently trying to clean up my book collection. For real. It's out of control.
My hubby has turned into a very grumpy hubby. 
I can't' blame him. When you are awoken in the middle of the night because an unsteady pile of books has come crashing down, I understand.

And with that, comes the pleasure of passing on some of those books to you!

Out and About! (10)

Another beautiful weekend.
Here I am, on our front porch, reading.
Hubby was at a bachelor party all weekend so I hadn't seen him for a few days. I'm sitting outside, waiting for him to come home. And enjoying a lovely Middle Grade mystery as well.
More on that later!

Where did you read this week?

Hello my fellow book crazy people!

I have a very special surprise for you!
So last Monday, I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for Siege & Storm!
It was amazing. Packed. Full house. Standing room only.

And there were so many YA and Middle Grade authors there it was hard to keep track of them all!
I saw Marie Lu, Melissa de la Cruz, Kristen Kittscher, Jessica Brody, Cecil Castellucci, Margaret Stohl, Lissa Price, the list goes on!!

This was at Hemmingway's Lounge in Hollywood, CA. A beautiful place with typewriters suspended from the walls and a beautiful collection of books for decoration.

No, really. I was there. Here are some pictures to prove it!
