A Great Day!

Today has been a great day!

Today is my birthday and one of my amazing friends made me cupcakes. Being the wonderfully creative person she is, Bryton didn't just make me ordinary cupcakes, no I got cupcakes decorated with some of my favourite books!

For those of you unfamiliar with these books, we have: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Graffiti Moon, The Alchemyst, Shiver and Guantanamo Boy.

Bryton's website is still under-going some work but you can check out some of her other cupcakes and crafty designs here.

Many other wonderful things happened today so excluding birthday celebrations, other cool news is that I have discovered that Rachel Caine, author of the Morganville Vampire series, and who is touring Australia and New Zealand in May, will be coming to PERTH!

This is very, very exciting news. Not only am I currently ADDICTED to her series, but I may actually get the chance to meet her. As Perth is such an isolated city, alot of people who come to Australia on their "AUSTRALIAN TOUR" usually leave Perth out of their visit, not to mention other capital cites in Aust such as Darwin, Adelaide and Hobart. Perth is the first place to be announced as part of her Bite Club Tour and my fingers are crossed for the other cities as more will be named soon.

Read my review of Glass Houses, book one in the Morganville Vampires series.

For a write up of each individual book, check out mummazappa's reviews at The Book Nerd Club.
