Book Blogger Love-A-Thon mini-challenge #5

For the final mini-challenge we're talking top blogging moments!

My top moments outside of the internet:

- First signing ever with Kimberly Derting
I finally went to my first signing ever this past year. It was a small thing at a local bookstore with
Kimberly Derting. She talked about The Body Finder series, her covers, and there was plenty of
laughing :] It was the perfect first signing!

- Blogger dinner
Back in December a rep from Harper was here in Seattle and invited all of us Seattle bloggers to a
dinner. It was the first time I really got to know the local bloggers and it was super fun (and tasty!) Plus,
it made me feel like I was a part of something awesome :]

I still can't really believe it happened even though I had the sore muscles to prove it for a week. It was
fantastic to hang out with the Seattle bloggers for the weekend and get to talk with some of the
publishers. I've always been a little scared of publishers because I feel like an ant that doesn't register on
their radar, but most of them were super nice :] Mostly, though it was just great to be surrounded by
loads of people who also loved books!

On the internet:
- First time an author tweeted at me (I believe it was Elizabeth Miles)
It was so surreal. I never in a million years would have thought an author would care about my review.
It was one of those moments that made me like people actually cared about my little blog.

- When Jaime (Perpetual Page-Turner) tweeted about my blog
I don't even remember when this was (it wasn't a dream, right?), but I do remember practically falling
off the couch when I saw it. I mean, when the awesome Jaime tells people to look at your blog you
tend to freak out a little.


  1. Love this post! I want to go to ALA one of these years, it sounds awesome! And that blogger lunch makes me want to move to Seattle! I bet that would be so fun.
    So a funny story about Kimberly Derting: My friend and I were at the RT conference and we got so lost walking around trying to find the entrance so we ask this woman (who was at the back of a long line) if that's where we lined up to go in. She says "No, this is the Starbucks line" Naturally, this was Kimberly Derting and I thought I was going to die!

  2. A blogger dinner sounds like so much fun!

  3. Fun list! I'd fall off my chair if Jamie mentioned my blog too...she is one of my favorite book bloggers! Great memories with more great ones to come!


  4. Congrats on your succeses! I know the feeling of an author mentioning you. It is so exciting! I cannot wait to attend a signing event!! Ah! Cool post!
