taherehmafi:

ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

Review : Red at Night by Katie McGarry @KatieMcGarry - an inspirational short story

Dre's Thoughts

This book came in at the right time. I was on a reading slump, and I just wanted to read something short and sweet. It’s got 87 pages, and I know sometimes it isn’t much to blow someone away, but let’s just say that it left me with a good feeling.

Review 157 : Life in the Palace by Catherine Green

Dre's Thoughts

* I received this book from the author  in exchange for an honest review*

The synopsis of the book was kind of vague. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I started reading the book. I just thought it was kind of intriguing, and the cover has a tiger on it, so I got curious and signed up for the Read & Review Program in Goodreads.

The story was told in Chloe Diaz’ perspective, while…

Stacking The Shelves #023

STS

Book Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It may be physical or virtual copies of books.

In preparation for the book signing tour of Rossi – Riggs – Mafi this month, I’ve been buying their books for them to sign. So this week, I got the first two books of the Under The Never Sky series. The bookstore didn’t have Into The Still Blue yet, so I’d have to check another branch.

And the eBooks just grows and grows!
