HELLO, friends!! As you can see, I am posting yet another Discussion Post because I’ve been in the mood to type something lengthy and thoughtful. However, before we get into the REAL discussion, I have some exciting news! If you didn’t read the title of this post…IT IS MY 7th MONTH BLOGIVERSARY!!! (Well, 14 days ago, lol)
I know what you are thinking, “7 months? Really? You are celebrating 7 months??” Yes, I am! I won’t get all sappy and such, but I will say THANK YOU to all of you guys that visit my blog, chat with me in the comments, or even follow me. My blog would not be striving as much if it weren’t for all the wonderful interactions I’ve been receiving. With that being said, I am hosting a small poll down below that will help me decide what “special post” I should post sometime this month. So PLEASE, if you can, take 30 seconds to answer my poll! 🙂
Anyways, now onto the discussion. Today’s topic issss…
I don’t know about you,
but I’m feeling 22 but I like to know about events BEFORE it gets too close to the deadline date [especially for me because I have to start the convincing process towards my parents]. Therefore I am creating a list for my fellow bookish bloggers of upcoming 2016 events. These events are going to be book related — YallFest, Author Events & Signings, etc. Of course, these are not going to be ALL of the events because some aren’t announced yet and I am not an expert on the when or wheres. But, these will be SOME of them…
I separated this list into two categories: Events Around Me (California) & Events…Everywhere Else, lol.
SOME EVENTS IN THE CALIFORNIA AREA:
- YallWest 2016 – WHERE: Santa Monica, CA. WHEN: April 30th – May 1st 2016
- On the Border Book Bash: – WHERE: San Diego, CA. WHEN: May 14, 2016 (tentative)
- Authors in the O.C. – WHERE: Anaheim, CA. WHEN: October 1st, 2016
- Bay Area Book Festival – WHERE: Downtown Berkeley, CA. WHEN: June 4th & 5th 2016.
SOME EVENTS EVERYWHERE ELSE:

Of course, like I said, I realize there are a ton of other events that are not listed on this post, but if you are interested in any of those events, I would definitely click the links to check them out! Some are free, some are not, so make sure you read more about the event.
I am currently wanting to got to YallWest 2016, so I asked my mother maybe a week ago and she said she’ll think about it. If I do end up going to YallWest, this event will be my first! 🙂
Now, I wanna hear your thoughts! Have you heard of any of these events? Are you going to any? Want to share your experiences? Want me to add an event to this list? Chat with me down below in the comments! 🙂
Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
