Weekend Catch-Up: November 7-8, 2015

November 9, 2015

This past weekend I resolved to get back into blogging, so here I am with a recap. A small one, but hey, it’s a start! ūüôā

First of all, I had the pleasure of participating in last month’s QUEER ROMANCE MONTH and my post, “The November Song”, was selected as the series closer. You should probably¬†check out my post, but you really need to read all of them. I wasn’t able to leave comments as often as I had hoped, but each post is lovely and insightful. So go forth and catch up!

This weekend was a bit busy, but in a good way. I spent Saturday at BookRiot Live and then celebrated a friend’s birthday by eating delicious Italian food, including gelato!

Sunday was day two of BookRiot Live and I attended the “Give Good Books: How to Buy for Kids” panel, which featured Stacy Whitman (publisher, Tu Books), Alvina Ling (VP and Editor-in-Chief, Little Brown Books for Young Readers), Greg Pak (author), Laurie Halse Anderson (author), and moderated by Cristin Stickles (Children’s and YA buyer, McNally Jackson). It was a great panel with great questions and answers.

Later, I went to the Whitney Museum of American Art for the first time with a friend. The collection was a bit more modern than I usually seek, which isn’t a bad thing at all, and¬†the Frank Stella exhibit was particularly¬†amazing.

In terms of books, I recently acquired a few new gems (pictured at the top of the post). A friend gave me the first three¬†books in Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series, which I’m super excited about because, hello, Adrian Ivashkov. I’m also really excited to have a copy of Wendy Higgins’s¬†The Great Hunt. I’m a total fanboy for Wendy’s books, as you may know, so hooray!¬†Summer of Supernovas¬†sounds adorable and perfect for my tastes, and then there’s¬†Witches of America, which, if you know me even just a little bit, you’ll know that I’m absolutely stoked to read it.

That was my weekend‚ÄĒhow was yours? What are you currently reading?
