3. Maria V. Snyder Signing

I'm yet to post about this event, I'm a bit delayed in certain posts but I'll be catching up very shortly. Anyhow, here's a pic from the event.

4. Signed Books

The arrival of my first ever signed books! Tania from Kidsbooks opened my eyes to a whole new world. I wasn't aware that the book stores are willing to get it personalized for me and then ship it over, so when Tania did this for me, it started a very bad "hobby" (aka obsession) and I've since been stalking book store events calendar for my favorite Authors.

5. ARC

Receiving my first ever ARC from Harper Collins which is Hades by Alexandra Adornetto.
6. Collection
Putting up my entire book collection on my new bookshelf. It was just amazing to see the entire collection up there on display. It's my pride and joy and those books are priceless to me. 

7. Childhood Nursery Rhymes

Looking at a book that my Mother got me when I was a baby. It's a hardback, A4 book of nursery rhymes and my Mum used to read from it. I looked at it recently and it had some pencil drawings from me as a baby LOL I didn't erase it cos it's memories.  

8. Memories

Recalling all my Sweet Valley High and Nancy Drew books that I gave away. To this day I wish I had kept them all.

9. Book Club

Attending my first ever book club meeting. It had a lot of elderly people and I really felt a bit left out but I just love books too much I couldn't let that get in my way.  

10. Author

My first email correspondence with a published Author! I felt like a celebrity had taken the time out to speak to me. I am so honoured that they have taken the time to write to me, I'm also amazed at how down to earth they are. I don't know what exactly I expected but they are all so lovely, friendly and accommodating.

New follower!
I totally agree with you on the getting rid of the old series I read. I just hope they found good homes. Also, book stalking. Totally the Vixens!
It's great to hear other bookish memories, and get a different perspective!

This is a lovely list! :-) Meeting authors and corresponding with them is amazing. And getting that first review book just feels so special doesn't it? :-)
