Do you have any favorite authors that write in more than one genre?
When I think of authors that write in more than one genre, I immediately think of Shannon Messenger! She writes both middle grade and YA fiction and I love both of the series!
This is book is from her YA series, the Sky Fall series! I was able to get this merch and the book signed two years ago, at Pasadena Loves YA!

Hastings Primary School was celebrating Harmony Day to coincide with my visit for @booksinhomesaustralia1 Book Giving Day, so I gave their library a copy of this book, which I wrote for the National Museum in 2006, to celebrate their acquisition of the first Vietnamese refugee boat to reach Australia. My first reaction was to refuse the request because it wasn’t my story to write, but on being told I had the full support of the Victorian Vietnamese community, I agreed- and had an amazing experience listening to some incredible stories. The book is still available as print on demand from the museum, rrp 10.95 -but I discovered a whole forgotten box when I got this one out for the school. So if you or your school want one, let me know- $10 inc postage within Australia, or @$8 for 10 or more copies.
it’s #worldbooksday so let’s celebrate some books!!!!
I finally got the collectors edition of ADSOM and promptly got it signed by @veschwab at her signing in Chattanooga. ••••••••••

it’s monday y’all so it’s back to the anxiety of work life. hope you’re week goes well!!
One of the books that I got signed by the author yesterday at Yalfest 2018.

I have been putting a lot of thought into the whole “seeing myself in a book” thing lately. It’s a big topic—writing or reading a book where you see someone that looks like you or faces situations like you do. .
Today I’m unboxing my March @parnassusnext, a signed first edition of “The Astonishing Color of After” the book that really got me thinking deeply on this topic. (Quick run down, Parnassus always always picks an awesome read. The authors go into their store and sign all the books! It’s a great box for collectors, people who don’t have opportunity to go to book signings, and those who want just a book in their subscription. The book is announced two weeks before shipping so you never miss a book you want!) .
I think because I am half Japanese and half Caucasian (lots of German on my dad’s side) I didn’t ever feel like I completely fit in on either side. I was completely fine relating to feelings and situations of characters in books. I never felt that need to see myself, and I think now it’s maybe because I didn’t ever expect to. .
First book for me to really relate was “To All The Boys I Have Loved Before” which is a similar family situation to mine and my upbringing. But “The Astonishing Color of After” really really became a read where I felt like I was reading about a character who was dealing with my “halfie” feelings and situations. And since reading these two, I finally get why people want to see themselves in books. There is a wide range of reasons we need diversity in books, and I’ve always supported that. But I think what I’m trying to say is that while I’ve always agreed with that, I finally really “get” it. .
Which books have you seen yourself in? Or are you still waiting? Or maybe you don’t mind either way?.
Happy weekend, friends! One of the highlights of my week has been receiving this particular book mail from @goodreads. I won a giveaway for a signed (SIGNED! 😍) copy of Ta-Nehisi Coates' We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy. Since I was truly moved by Coates' Between the World and Me, and thought his writing was both challenging and profound, I am really excited to dive into Eight Years soon.
I tend to keep books that I'm excited to read on my bedside table, so that's where this one will live for now as well. Also on my bedside table: a journal, pen, a book light, tissues, a volume of the Sherlock Holmes novels, a copy of The Parable of the Sower, and my e-reader. 🤷♀️ QOTD: What books do you keep on your bedside table??

QOTD: Rain or sunshine? Why?
Hello, lovelies! I took a 4-day break from posting, but I'm back because I wouldn't miss #signedbooksundays !
For the second to the last Sunday, the prompt is a signed book I've never used for SBS. Considering that this month was my first time joining, I had quite a few to choose from.
I met @amyzhangbooks almost two years ago. The funny thing was, a year before her book signing, I took a photo of myself holding Falling Into Place and captioned it, "I wish I'm with the real Amy, though." Who would have thought I'd actually meet her and have a pic with her a year later?
Bookmark made by yours truly 😊
Uno de mis mayores tesoros, si no el mayor: un ejemplar de 'A cidade sitiada' de Clarice Lispector, firmado por ella misma. Clarice me ha acompañado desde que leí 'La hora de la estrella' publicado en el proyecto Periolibros que se distribuía en periódicos de España y América Latina. Aún me cuesta creer que hace unos cuantos años encontrase en una web este ejemplar. Firmado por la autora, decía. Por el precio ridículo que pedían estaba dispuesto a arriesgarme. Y efectivamente, era su letra y su firma (la había visto cientos de veces en fotos). Así que sí, en 1964 Clarice dedicó este libro a alguien que debía ser muy cercano a ella, dado que sólo escribe su nombre y no su apellido, que sí aparece en otros ejemplares firmados. Lo dedicó en Río de Janeiro. 14 años antes de que yo naciese. Yo nací 1 año después de su muerte. Y hoy, ahora, toco este libro que tocó ella. Este libro que ha dado la vuelta al mundo sin que sepa cómo. Y entonces entiendo porqué amo los libros autografiados.
Just did a reshuffle of my lounge room book shelf. Needed to make 2 shelves for all Aussie books so need to move things around. Most books on these shelves are signed and I now call many of the authors friends. This book shelf is my happy place ❤️❤️❤️ #bookshelves#loveozya#bookcollection#signedbooks
I met the awesome @miahopkinsxoxo today at the LA Festival of Books! She is super nice! She is a new to me author, thanks to @crystalreadsromance and I'm currently in the middle of her latest book Thirsty! There is beer in this book! 🍻
I got a copy of this cowboy book and had it signed by her! [Swipe left 👉🏽]
Have you read anything by her? Which book do you recommend I read next? 📖
