To end my crazy literary adventures, I took a quick and impromptu trip to Cincinnati. May kicked off with my first Romantic Times Convention down in Atlanta. In the beginning of June, I attended a Feminism in Romance Novels panel at The Strand and then BookCon at the end of the week. During this time I learned about Lori Foster’s annual Reader and Author Get Together, or RAGT. More importantly, I learned that both J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning would be signing books on Saturday, June 10th. So like any other normal romance fan, I booked a flight to Cincinnati. Luckily, my mom encouraged this madness and even attended with me! We arrived on Friday and spent the day exploring the city before heading to the book-signing on Saturday. And boy did we have a blast! RAGT, for the little we attended, was an awesome event and totally on my list for next year! I had a great time hanging out in line for J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning and chatting with the guests! I brought books for both authors to sign. I also got books signed for the people who introduced me to both authors. One of my best friends has always given me the best romance novel recommendations and she, many years ago, insisted that I would loved Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series and she was totally right! When I was first reading vampire romance, back in my *hides face* Twilight days, I had read Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. However, I couldn’t get into the series back then, probably because I was a bit too young. When I started working at Barnes and Noble a few years ago, one of my coworkers recommended the Black Dagger Brotherhood and I tried them out again. Of course, I loved them. So I had to get a book signed for her as well. I truly had an amazing time and feel so blessed to meet such amazing authors. Every experience I’ve had in the romance novel community has been positive and I’m so grateful for such a supportive and lovely group of people. Okay, gushing done, time for pictures!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list and everyone is welcome to join. This week’s theme is “Ten Finished Series I Have Yet To Finish”. However, I amended it this week. So my list is “Ten Series I Have Yet To Finish”.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I read the first two books but I couldn’t bring myself to read the rest. However, I’ll probably watch the entire TV series, depending how far it gets.
Elemental Assassin by Jennifer Estep
I lost interest about 7 or 8 books in.
Midnight Breed by Lara Adrian
Same as Elemental Assassin, I just lost interest and I was never fan of the alien-vampire story-line anyway
Argeneau Series by Lynsay Sands
I’ll probably end up picking up this series again. I just didn’t want to buy the last two books and my library didn’t have them
Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning
I read the Fever series but wasn’t really interested in Iced. Like the Argeneau series, I’ll eventually go back and finish it.
Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward
I know I’ll continue this series but I bought a copy of The Shadows when it came out and it has been sitting at the end of my bed for 5 months. For some reason, I just can’t bring myself to read it.
I just realized most of these series are paranormal. Huh, that’s interesting .
