Stacking the Shelves/Letterbox Love


To try and reach more people and find new blogs, I'm now doing Stacking the Shelves (hosted by Tynga) as well as continuing Letterbox Love (hosted by Kirsty).

I only got two books this week, but they are both awesome. I was lucky enough to get to go to the tour stop for Maureen Johnson & Stephanie Perkins last night, and it was absolutely hilarious! I'll put up a post about it tomorrow, with pictures, which trust me you're going to want to see. It was just so funny!

So I picked up a copy of Steph's "Anna and the French Kiss", as well as Maureen's new book, the one she's touring for, "The Madness Underneath". I loved the first book in the series, and I had a sneaky read of the first couple of chapters while we were waiting for them to arrive.


Pretty books!

I have no idea what this says after my name.

Aww, this is cute :)


It's been a quiet week on the blog because I've had college midterms and papers to deal with, but things will be better next week!

Wow, I would have been SO excited to meet both Authors. I think they would be freaked out by the number of books I would have brought them to sign. I hope you enjoy both books. I LOVE Anna and the French Kiss.

You're so lucky to have met both Stephanie Perkins and Maureen Johnson! I love signed books because they feel a lot more personal. I think it says 'enjoy' after your name; it does look like it. Happy reading!

I picked up Anna and the French Kiss when it was a Kindle deal a while ago, but haven't read it yet. Lucky you to meet her and Maureen, though!

Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by my StS!

I'm always really jealous of signed books. Man! I enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss, I've yet to read a book by Maureen, but I've heard good things about her novels.

Oh my gosh, so jealous that you got to see Stephanie Perkins and Maureen Johnson! I loved Anna and Lola, and Maureen is just awesome. I haven't read The Name of the Star yet, but I definitely want to. I have a copy of the book, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

Anyway, enjoy your goodies. Happy reading :)

Love Anna!!! I got to meet Steph Perkins last year and she was awesome. Sounds like you had a great time.

Sandy on March 3, 2013 at 8:02 AM said...

That's so hilarious that you can't read what Maureen Johnson wrote after your name. That seems so like her (basing that off her crazy tweets).
