Hello, Jackie here,
Happy Mother’s Day to all my readers who are also mothers and if you’re not a mother go hug your moms and tell them they are awesome. My mom is awesome because she supports my reading habits by driving me to the bookstore on release days to get a book I’ve been anticipating forever. Anyways, last weekend was YALLWEST and while I missed getting a Heartless ARC on Saturday, because I woke up a little late (thank you public transportation for making me wake up super early just to go to an event that’s two hours away), I was better prepared on Sunday and lined up all the lines. I’m not too crazy about waking up on a weekend at 6AM, but I guess that’s how we bookworms roll when it comes to books. Anyways I had an okay time at YALLWEST and ended up going to both days this year. I’m glad that book festivals are over for the year though. Time to save money for traveling.
