& Myself waiting for the doors
to open. We were hanging out
with Laura (Life After Jane)
and Autumn (From the TBR Pile)
I know a bunch of other pictures were taken and I can’t wait to see all them, but I got to meet a ton of bloggers and everyone was so nice. A special shout out to the awesomeness that is Bailey at IB Book Blogging & Sasha from Sasha and Em who nabbed me some books that I was unable to find. Then on top of my book angels, I also got to meet, Maria, Caris Book Blog, Christie @ The Fiction Enthusiast, Jess @ Gone with the Words & her friend Leti, Madigan Reads, Jen @ I Read Banned Books, Nerissa – Inthenameofbooks , Jamie & Josh (bookmarked)
Sab @ YA Bliss, Michelle @ Windowpane Memoirs and I could go on, because I got to meet so many bloggers. And then we got to go out and party…Bourbon Street here we come! Sasha & Nerissa had her mouth open the hole time in shock and Christie was so much fun!
Here we are on the balcony

with Julie Kagawa.
Then of course there were the authors…here is me with Leanna Renee Hieber.
Leanna and Julie Kagawa actually recognized my blog which nearly made me do a dance and act insane. That was the biggest affirmation of what I do. And speaking of the genius that created the Iron Fey series. She probably thought I was stalking her after that because it seemed that Patti and I kept on showing up where she was hanging out. And then I would smile like a lunatic and try to say something witty but it just came out that I would repeat her name – which I probably pronounced wrong. I hang my head in shame.
I also took a lot of stalker-esque pictures of authors, but I won’t add all of those because this would go on forever…and speaking of Forever, I’m sure you guys are ready now to see the books that I picked up. The reason my shoulders hurt and my back hurts and my feet hurt…
There is nothing like lugging nearly 40 books (first days haul) about a quarter of a mile, to find a Starbucks and then have them close the moment you get there.
