  1. Ooooh O_o thanks again for this post, Liz, I'm so unknowing about these things :P I would try to go to the Above launch, but I'm seeing Hunger Games at midnight, though it sounds like so much fun! 3 piece suits! XD Do you think you'll be going to the Kelley Armstrong event?

    1. You're welcome, Audrey! If I time to spare from studying for exams then, I *should* be able to go to the Kelley Armstrong event. I went to an event of hers at Yorkdale last year and had fun, so I'm hoping I can go again. :)

  2. Great books coming our way! :D
    I totally forgot The Calling came out in April! :D thanks for the reminder.

    1. No problem, Alex! I can't wait to read The Calling as well! :)

  3. Geez I wish Montreal would get some love too =(

    1. Jay Asher will be coming to Montreal sometime in the future, so I'll be sure to post the details when them come along... :)

  4. I totally want to hit up the Ldn Kelley Armstrong event... I'm so glad she's from here so she always has a signing, especially since I missed the last one! =)
