Book Events, RT, Top Ten Tuesday 33

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie, so I decided I’d combine it with my update on RT 2015! Top Ten Things I Loved About RT 2015 (Clockwise, from left to right – Colleen Hoover, Sara Raasch, IW Gregorio, Brigid Kemmerer, Kimberly Derting, Liz Czukas  – AKA Ellie Cahill, Jennifer Lynn Armentrout, Ann Aguirre) Okay, I know I’ve been silent on the blog a lot this past week, but RT was WAY more intense and all-consuming than I expected. In all the best ways, though!! This conference was AMAZING in so many ways – it is so much more personal than BEA, and there’s A LOT more more interaction with the authors. That’s not to say that I didn’t love BEA, and I’m definitely going to be heading to that next year, but I would highly recommend RT if you’re looking for something different. Next year it’s in Vegas! 1. My Roommate If it weren’t for RT,… Read more »
