So April is turning out to be a very exciting month in SoCal for book events! There is, of course, the annual LA Times Festival of Books at USC (details below). But there's also a Pasadena Teen Book Fest that's goin on two after that at the Pasadena Library (details also below). Needless to say, I've already spent over $100 in books for these events and plan on buying some there. For those who don't know what I'm babbling on about or you're just interested in the authors at these events, please feel free to read below. I really hope I get to meet/see some of you there!

  1. I'll be seeing you a lot in April. :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing you there Nicole. I feel like there is so much going on at this Festival of Books. I don't know how long I'll last in the sun but should be fun! :)

  3. I'm so jealous about the LA book festival and the Pasadena one. They don't have anything like that up here in NorCal that I know of!
