Book Expo America is over and I'm back in Amish Country, Ohio. Unfortunately, I did not get to blog while I was in New York or on the return trip. First, we had problems with the wireless in the hotel (I think it was being overloaded by all the bloggers in the hotel) and then our train for the return trip did not have Wi-Fi for some reason. So, I'm going to have to recap the week for you now that I'm home with my own internet.
Books Complete Me and Inga from Me and Reading. It was AWESOME! We got to hear from some great authors and I found a few new books and authors that I want to check out. I bought a copy of Posses by Gretchen McNeill, who moderated one of the panels. She was hilarious and Possess sounded great. I also got to see Eliot Schrefer and hear about his upcoming book, Endangered. I'm so excited about it! I also got to talk to Jeri Smith-Ready- one of my favorite authors of all time! After the panels and signings, Inga and I went to McDonalds to eat and talk. It was lovely getting to spend time with someone I only knew before from the internet. Inga's a sweet friend who I'm so glad to have met in person.
I got the following signed books: Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton, Elemental by Emily White, Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry, Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (who loved my lanyard and wanted to know where to get one), Cursed by Jennifer Armentrout and Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. After the long day at BEA, I spent the evening in bed trying to read but I fell asleep instead. My awesome roommate, Sara from Novel Novice, took my copy of Possess to Books of Wonder where Gretchen McNeill was signing that night. She even ran through the RAIN to get there. How awesome is that?!
