3. Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog? I don't really seem to have these. 

4. Best event that you participated in (author signings, festivals, virtual events, memes, etc.)? I went to a small writing conference put on my RWA chapter. It was fantastic. Plus I got to have coffee with Sarah MacLean.

700 books read? THIS YEAR??? OH MY! Heart palpitations! Yet you said never enough time to read and stats are down! Oh my! I just can’t even!.... HAHA! I didn’t even try not to use Empire of Storms for 90% of my answers!  I haven’t started her other series yet. I was late reading Fangirl too, but I think I read it last year. Fun survey answers!
