The Sunday Snapshot – Week of July 8th

sundaysnapshot

So last weekend I had the opportunity to attend Book Bash in Orlando. I can’t tell you just how fun it was to be there… to meet our favorite authors, get to know other bloggers and meet readers that are just as passionate about the books they read as I am. Some of the best conversations I had were in line waiting to get my books signed. I seriously loved geeking out over books with other people who became my insta-friends! 🙂 I had so much fun! The authors I met were incredibly nice and I felt really re-energized as a blogger to keep reading, discovering awesome new books and keep discussing it all with you… because at the end of the day, it’s about being lucky enough to have a community of people who share the same love of reading.

    I absolutely and totally loved Vain 🙂 I can’t wait to read FADING (met E.K. Blair at Book Bash and she is awesome!) and the Redhead books by Alice Clayton. I loved Wallbanger and I hear these are just as funny! I’ll let you know!
