LA Times Festival of Books 2012

Yesterday I had the most AMAZING day ever! It was full of books, talented authors, friends, and fun! I was with an amazing group ( the THS Book Club <- I love these girls!). Our original group started out with 4 of us girls, one being Zareen from Reach for the Stars...and the Books and the other being Wafa from The Literary Ninja. We also met up with some other club members while we were there! So in the end 7 of us were representing our fantastic book club! We were basically in the YA area, and lets just say it involved a lot of waving and laughing! :D 

Here are a few pictures of the event! But Let me tell you this is not even half of it!

Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia, authors of the Beautiful Creatures books
Lauren Kate, author of the Fallen series
D.J. MacHale, author of the Pendragon series and Morpheus Road trilogy

Me with Lauren Kate! :D 

Blake Nelson, author of Girl and Dream School
Siobhan Vivian, author of The List
Jessi Kirby, author of Moonglass and In Honor
*Side note: Jessi Kirby was telling other authors about the event, so so many authors knew who I was :D*


Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay and Where She Went
Nina LaCour, author of The Disenchantments
Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss
pictured with (left to right) Zareen, me ,Wafa, and another book club member!

It got really hot, so one of my friends and I were goofing off.

We all love fountains xD

Anne & Whitley Strieber, authors of Melody Burning
Gabrielle Zevin, author of All These Things I've Done
Holly Goldberg Sloan, author of I'll Be There 
*Side note: Holly recognized our club and even talked about us! All of us could not stop giggling, but we were honored!*

We took a picture with: 
Anne & Whitley Strieber, authors of Melody Burning
Gabrielle Zevin, author of All These Things I've Done
Holly Goldberg Sloan, author of I'll Be There
Some of the other authors present were: 
John Green(The Fault in our Stars)- There was almost a 2 hour wait to meet him!
Josephine Angelini(Starcrossed and Dreamless)-I do have a picture but it's in Wafa's camera
Kendare Blake (Anna Dressed in Blood)- I do have a picture but it's in Wafa's camera
Robin LaFevers(Grave Mercy)
Cecil Castellucci(Boy Proof and The Plain Janes)   
Derek the Ghost (Scary School)

I took like 30 books with me to get signed, and well I got almost all of the signed! I also bought In Honor by  Jessi Kirby (Which releases in a month!) and I also got it signed! It was and amazing experience, and I already can not wait for next year! My day was made when people knew who I was (it felt awesome!) Up Next ALA and OCCBF!
