I Met Sabaa Tahir and It Was AWESOME.

Truth, guys, truth.

No one ever comes to my neck of the words! Seriously, like ever! So when I saw that Sabaa would be in town, I literally shrieked at my husband, who then proceeded to give me a funny look. Whatever, Husband. You don’t know my excitement.

Top Ten Tuesday: All about Audio(books)!
