Linger Book Signing Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater has begun her Linger book tour and kicked it off with a stop at The Woodlands Mall in Houston, Texas and we were there! She is truly  a crack-up to listen too.

Abby, Maggie and Natalie

                                             Maggie hard at work

You cannot come to Southeast Texas and leave empty handed, so my wonderful friend Abby met me and made Maggie Shiver Inspired Cake Balls! They are to die for I tell you :) Maggie, the sweets were made from scratch so no preservatives (we forgot to tell you as we giggled like little school girls). 

Abby put them in the cute little black tin you see on the table.  And you cannot come to our "neck of the woods" and not get an I'd So Rather Be Reading Tee. I think Maggie got a kick out of the shirt. There was one young girl that showed up with a handful of tiny paper cranes, they were so cute! We hate we missed out on a picture :(


Kelli couldn't make the signing because she was sick at home so she stayed behind and had a nice book binge... surprise, surprise :) Well for me personally it was a BATTLE to get to the signing. First my car died at 5:00 am in the morning at the hospital where I work... then the mechanic couldn't get to it... SO, I did what any good book blogger would do... I rented my butt a car, threw my kids in the back and drove 2 hours to The Woodlands (and only got pulled over once for speeding but was given a very nice warning... sheesh). But I did it for all of you because you know good and well I got an extra book signed for a giveaway (in September)!! But it all worked out and I think I laughed about 75% of the day :)

We really had a great time, the Barnes & Noble store was very well set up and everyone was really relaxed and sweet. If you haven't read Shiver or Linger, what are you waiting for? Click here and here for more on the series or you can take a peek at Kelli's reviews of Shiver and Linger.

Thank you Abby for being my partner in crime :)
