I never thought it was possible to be too excited, but that's how I'm feeling right now. I really need to calm myself down ^_^; I mean, I've been so excited that I haven't been able to sleep. It's worst than Christmas LOL.
So to clear my mind, let's talk books :) Yesterday was the Smart Chicks Kick It! tour and Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Rachel Caine, Rosemary Clement-Moore, Melissa de la Cruz, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl were present. I went to get some of my books signed by Kelley Armstrong. She's the only author among them that I read, which when you think about is quite unfortunate... but I'm not a huge YA reader, so what can I say?
Anyway, the book signing was a bit of a mix bag. I was really happy to be able to attend and to meet the authors and I think it's a really fun event. There was a short introduction and a Q&A session and then, the signing. These authors are fun, witty and happy to be there which was really cool. Unfortunately, I thought the area they held the book signing was too small. It would have been fun if there were actually chairs so we could be comfortable. Instead, we stood in line the whole time. While we could hear, we hardly had a view of the stage where the authors were. Ah well. I also think there was a higher turn-out than the bookstore expected, so I didn't have the chance to get a lot or some great pictures... but here is what I have :)
Yeah, not the greatest pictures, but the best I could do. Oh and the good thing about this signing is I could bring my own books, didn't have to buy the books from the bookstore. Yay! Cos being a big fan of Kelley Armstrong, I already have them all LOL. Anyway, it was still a cool activity overall :)
And here is what I got this week in the mail:
Delusion in Death by J.D. Robb - Always on the look out for the new In Death book :)
Riveted by Meljean Brook - I hesitated a little, but it's really been getting good reviews :) Can't wait to read it.
And that's it for this week. Not a lot, but books from two great authors :) And you, what did you get?
