Fangirling 101

Per Merriam-Webster dictionary, “Fangirling” is defined as:

A girl or woman who is an extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something;

To Exhibit fandom often to an excessive degree : to behave like an extremely devoted or overly excited fangirl.

Ladies and Gentlemen…..I am a fangirl! Wait, let me back up and start from the beginning…..

I started reading this book, Dear Life by Meghan Quinn; now, this isn’t your typical rom-com story…no, this book was deep and emotional. I read this book in ONE DAY!

There is a message that carries through the entire story “Prove Your Existence”. Each of the characters had this task. It made me think, wow! What a thought? How do I prove my existence? Well, I wasn’t. I was sitting by and letting life happen. I wasn’t putting myself out there and after reading Dear Life, that mentality changed.

Which now brings me to Fangirling….because you see, I had the most amazing opportunity to meet the author, Meghan Quinn, at Indies Invade Philly in 2017…..and yes….I total fangirled!!! I have video and photographic proof of it. And I am not ashamed of it!!!

In 2018, I attended Book Bonanza in Denver, Colorado, where yet again, I fangirled over Meghan! But this time, I was able to show her a tat that I got because of her book, what a moment!!!

So, I have lived up to Merriam-Webster’s definition of fangirl and I am here to say…

I AM A PROUD FANGIRL!!!!!!

How Books Helped This Introvert to People Better ❤️📚

By A Bibliophile

I love books, peopleing not so much. I am a nurse, a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a friend. All of these things tend to be draining on my soul. As an introvert, I refill my tank during my alone time. This alone time is when I read. The BBBGirls motto is that “we lose ourselves in books and we find ourselves there too”. I love experiencing the different worlds and personalities. In books you get to live a life that you never would have, if not in a book. Maybe it’s escapism, I don’t know, I don’t care. It fills my soul.

That being said, it also made me come out of my comfort zone by helping me to interact with humans on a social level. And actually enjoy it. I have made more friends than I ever had as a child. All because of a shared love of reading. I have driven across many states (by myself) to stay at the home of someone who I met through books. At the time I hadn’t even met her in person!! Hello, waaayyy out of my comfort zone! I’ve become part of a blog that has given me opportunity to talk to so many new people. I skype into our monthly book chats. Staring at my own face speaking is terrifying by the way. I’ve started going to signings and actually speaking to authors whose books I have loved. Madness! I no longer sit quietly in the background and just watch everyone else living their best life. Books have given me strength, knowledge, and self-esteem. I have realized that I can also fill my soul by sharing my love of reading with all of you!

❤️COVER REVEAL❤️

STONE PRINCESS
Tin Gypsy #3

Release Date: May 5th, 2020
Cover Design: Hang Le
Purchase Details: www.devneyperry.com/books/stoneprincess

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.
