Alison from Harper moderated the event and did a fabulous job. I love going to these events, because it is so interesting to meet the authors behind our favorite books and find out how sweet and funny they are. Jenn and I have been lucky enough to see all the authors except for one more than once. This was the first signing that we were able to see Brodi Ashton and I am glad we did because she was hilarious. I kept nudging Jenn and whispering how funny her comments were. She was so cute! We loved all the authors who came out that night and are enjoying their works immensely. Jenn and I are definitely sad that Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series is at an end. We devoured the first two books and now we're taking our sweet time in reading the third because we can't let go, but we're excited to find out what new projects and ideas she comes up with.
One thing I have to mention is that when I see Tahereh Mafi, the first thing I look for is what shoes she's wearing, and that night she did not disappoint. She is made of awesome!! The booktwins are definitely in love with her and her writing. I haven't read Unravel Me yet but if it's anything like the first installment, I'm sure it's a winner. Tahereh mentioned that reading Destroy Me (Shatter Me, #1.5) would help in understanding Warner's character a lot better, so I'll probably read that before the sequel.
Veronica Rossi is always so cute and sweet at events. She entertained the audience with a funny story of how she pitched Under the Never Sky to her agent. There were costumes involved. If you haven't read any of the authors from the event, pick up one of their books today. You won't be disappointed!
