As I type this I am thinking about all the things I have left to do this week before the insanity that will be my week next week begins.
What insanity you say?
RT Booklovers Convention insanity!
So to put this in perspective… this will be my first book convention ever which means I have no clue what I really need to pack or expect. People that know me understand that I like to have things in order before I go anywhere and not having a clue of what to expect other than being busy causes me to stress a little bit. << Yes I can see quite a few of them rolling their eyes right now and saying “A little?? HAH!” >> I’m not OCD about a lot of stuff but I really hate not already having everything either packed or at least organized the weekend before I leave on a week long trip but in this case I still have stuff to pick up later today and hair/nails to be done in the next two days.
Now I am looking forward to this trip but at the same time it has made me get a bit behind on reading/reviewing as acquiring clothing, accessories and miscellaneous toiletries have taken a major chunk of my reading time away. Add in weather that can’t decide if it is Spring or Winter and allergies that are trying to decide if I need to be able to breathe or not and we have a very messed up Stephanie. Get ready to see some reviews posting over the next few days as I work in time to write/post them plus some items going up while I am in Kansas City next week as time permits.
For those that are reading this and will be at the convention… Please say HI but forgive me if later in the week I don’t recognize you as I am sure my brain will hit its maximum memory limit fairly early in the week and to be honest my fan-girl self will be dancing in delight as I get to finally meet some of the authors/editors that have both given me titles that you have seen on here as reviews and entertained me through the years with their words.
Be prepared to see some giveaways after I get back as I’m sure there will be items that I will want to share with those of you who weren’t able to get to Kansas City. I’ll also post pictures and other items here plus tweet while I am there so have fun in my absence.
Now this list isn’t complete but I’m really looking forward to meeting (not any particular order & I know I missed people) :
Sarah from SmartBitches
Jane from Dear Author
Lillie from RR@H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk
E from Bookpushers
Mandi from Smexybooks
Oh hell there are so many more but you get the idea of how crazy this will be and yet how much fun it should be. Wish me luck and pray my body/brain survives this!
