Good news! I got more bookshelves! Yaaaaay! I haven’t put them together yet, but once I do I’ll take pictures. I still haven’t really taken pics of my other bookshelf either, have I? I’ll get on that this week, I think.
I don’t really have any other personal news, so let’s talk about book events, instead! Here’s some upcoming SoCal book events (you can find more at the SoCal Book Events Doc!):
- Tomorrow (3/11) in San Diego, Dan Wells signs at Mysterious Galaxy. He wrote I Am Not a Serial Killer and Partials, which I haven’t read but it looks interesting.
- On 3/20 in Pasadena, Ruth Ozeki discusses and signs A Tale for the Time Being at Vroman’s.
- On 3/21 in Los Angeles, Cassandra Clare signs Clockwork Princess at B&N. Still haven’t read any of her books– do you think I’d like them?
- Also on 3/21, in Pasadena this time, Marie Lu discusses and signs Prodigy: A Legend Novel at Vroman’s. I liked Legend so I plan on reading Prodigy, eventually.
- On 3/22 in Mission Viejo, Cassandra Clare (maybe also Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan?) sign their books at Mission Viejo Library. I think they’re all touring together on the same bus, if I understand SRB’s tweets correctly. Exciting!
- On 3/25 in Pasadena, Amy Stewart discusses and signs The Drunken Botanist at Vroman’s. She wrote that AMAZING killer plant book I loved so much.
- 3/29 in Redondo Beach is the YA “You Are Next” Tour stop at Mysterious Galaxy!
- And finally, 3/29-3/31 in Anaheim is WonderCon! I’m not sure if I’m going yet– I’m waiting for the schedule to show up on the website before I decide. Are any of YOU going?
Lots of exciting events, yay! Anyone going to any of these signings? Which one are you most excited for?

I suppose I shoud be reading Wuthering Heights now, but instead I’m going to read Mirror Dance by Lois McMaster Bujold. I’m actually about two chapters into it, and I’m not sure I like it. I like Miles, and Mark is a CLONE of Miles, but reading about Mark instead of Miles is kinda…eh. So far, at least. It MIGHT be because I don’t feel like reading ebooks at the moment; so it’s a good thing I’ve got all these paper books to read, too!
Since I’ve gotten new shelves, I’ve been picking out different books I want to reread soonish. One of those books is Waiting by Debra Ginsberg, a memoir/social commentary about waitressing. The last time I read it was before I started book blogging, and since I’ve kept it in my collection for that long I figure it’s time to read it again.
