#TheDUFF Red Carpet Recap with Kody Keplinger + Giveaway!

#TheDUFF Red Carpet Recap with Kody Keplinger + Giveaway!

The DUFF festivities are continuing! Last week, the red carpet premiere took place in LA, and yesterday another one took place in New York! Kody Keplinger, the brilliant, fabulous, and lovely author of The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend, was lucky enough to be in attendance, and I was lucky enough to get to ask her a couple of questions about the whole experience!! (I’m not INTERNALLY FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS, nope nope nope.) How did you feel as an author fitting into the Hollywood scene? Kody: It was really nerve-wracking, I won’t lie. But luckily, the cast and crew of the film have been […]

Meet the Author: Samantha Shannon of The Bone Season

Meet the Author: Samantha Shannon of The Bone Season

This past Monday, I had the immense honor of meeting Samantha Shannon, author of the debut novel The Bone Season. It was somewhat of a surprise – the event was planned super last minute, so I only knew about it five days before that. Sadly, that meant that it was way too short notice to find a hardcover copy of the book. Amazon would likely get it here just one day too late. Judith, bless her heart, went around to a ton of bookstores in Amsterdam to try to find it. Turned out that there honestly wasn’t a single hardcover copy of The Bone Season for sale […]

Meeting Neil Gaiman & The Story of The Ocean at the End of the Lane

If you didn’t catch the latest updates on the #GaimanGate fiasco, eventually I was offered the opportunity to go to the Rotterdam event because spots had opened up and I was on the waiting list (or, you know, they saw my blog post). So this past Friday, I had the amazing and exciting opportunity to meet Neil Gaiman.It was… incredible. I felt immensely guilty for not having read his books yet *cough* but the man is just amazing. He has such charisma, and I love his dry sense of humor. I WILL FIX THE NOT HAVING READ HIS BOOKS YET THING SOON.The EventThe organization still […]

Meet the Author: Tahereh Mafi Interview + Giveaway

Meet the Author: Tahereh Mafi Interview + Giveaway

Now it’s not often that American authors are able to cross the pond to my poor little country to promote their books, so imagine my surprise when the awesome and hilarious author Tahereh Mafi announced her plans to visit the Netherlands. I read her book, Shatter Me, back in March (before I started writing reviews, sadly, so I can’t share that with you) and gave it an unquestionable five stars. I absolutely loved it, so knowing about her visit, I eagerly followed the Dutch publisher (Blossom Books) to see how I could meet her. Luckily I won a Meet & Greet on November 27th, so […]
