I was thrilled to meet the authors of two books I've read, reviewed, and LOVED this year, as well as two more authors whose books we're also in the process of reviewing at Emily's Reading Room.
This is a total blur-fest, but here I am with all four Fierce ladies! Maybe next time I'll bring a real camera instead of just my phone.
Left to right: Emmy Laybourne (Monument 14), Jennifer Bosworth (Struck), me (badhairday), Leigh Bardugo (Shadow and Bone) and Anna Banks (Of Poseidon).
Sorry, Anna Banks. You blinked. But your hair looks great!
My hair did not look great. I always forget that San Francisco doesn't agree with my 'do. Still, look at how excited we were to be there!
Shadow and Bone is in my top 3 favorite books of 2012. I have a triple tie for first place right now, so I should say it's number one on my list! I absolutely loved it. I've even have my husband reading it now so we can talk about it. I don't know if I'll be able to talk him into reading Of Poseidon, but I loved that book! So cute. My signed books collection has two shiny new members:
I just loved meeting each of these women! It was a fun night and a great experience. Thanks to the gorgeous authors, Fierce Reads, Not Your Mother's Books Club, and Books, Inc. And thanks, Mom, for being my date!
