Today was the monthly meet up with some local bloggers plus two new guests. The local bloggers are: Avis, Donna and Tina. The two new guests were: Linda Ellen and Michael. We met at our usual little tea shop for some great cold and hot drinks plus some great munchies such as nuts, cheesecake and brownies.
It was really nice to meet Linda Ellen. Its nice to put a face behind the blogging. I hope we didn’t scare you too much Linda?
As usual it was really nice to sit and talk about books etc with everyone. What is great about our group is that we all have different reading preferences so its nice to hear what everyone is reading and reviewing plus its really nice to exchange some books with each other. I am always happy when I am able to pass on books I have read to others, even if they didn’t like them. 🙂
Well here is what hitched a ride to my door to make a home on my bookshelf for a short period of time I am hoping anyways.
Places I Never Meant to be by Judy Blume. This was from Avis. You can see her blog for this review.
Obama’s Blackberry by Kasper Hauser
The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron
These were from Linda Ellen.
From Tina I got:
-For Keeps by Natasha Friend (There is no picture for this one because it only comes out in April 2010)
-Almost 5’4 by Isobella Jade
-The Divorce Party by Laura Dave
-Love Lies by Adele Parks
-undiscovered gyrl by Allison Burnett (This comes out Aug 11)
-Feminista by Erica Kennedy (This comes out Sept)
-Wedding Tiers by Trisha Ashely
I think that a majority of this books are on Tina’s blog with the exception of a few of the soon to be released books.
It was another great meet up and looking forward to our September one. Avis I hope you enjoy your vacation and have a safe flight to the East Coast.

Your monthly meet-ups sound like so much fun! How did Michael do surrounded by women?
That would be so fun to meet up with local bloggers!
Oh, how fun! Getting together with bloggers AND getting new books! Sounds like a perfect day.
lol, I didn’t get scared, but I do have to admit that I didn’t know what to expect. I was also hoping to make a positive impression. Did it work?
Will you give Michael my thanks? If not for him, I might have chosen a drink or a piece of cake that I might have enjoyed less. =)
My reviews for Obama’s Blackberry and The Higher Power of Lucky are also up on my blog, if you’re interested.
Oh, and I had asked to review Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind from Hachette. I think you might enjoy reading it, but I’m not sure. You can ask them, or if you’re not sure, I’m hosting a giveaway for it. =)
Have a nice day! I’ll see you again in September. =)
Kathy-It was alot of fun and Michael was okay with going but said he wouldn’t go all the time but he enjoyed it. He likes to see who I am talking to.
Linda Ellen-It was so nice to finally meet you today. You made a great impression on us. LOL Cha Noir has all kinds of great drinks and so far I have yet to be dissappointed in them. Okay I will add that you have reviewed both those books. See you in a few weeks. 🙂
Hi Cindy, I see that Michelle at GalleySmith is running a Literary Road Trip, and there’s nobody covering Montreal yet, so I thought the BBAM may be interested in participating.
Your monthly meet-ups sound like funny. Lucky you.
I’m so completely jealous! I would love to learn about the same sort of group in my area.
