O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
Let's start off the day with a good photo!! That is me at Jennifer Weiner's signing. I made a beeline for that booth after missing out on her autograph on Monday.
From right: authors Tonya Hurley, Liz Norris, Melissa Marr, Bethany Griffin, Jenny Han, and Siobhan Vivian at The Ongoing Evolution of YA fiction talk.
The Harlequin booth just before the Mystery writer signing. It's also where someone almost cut in front of me. I gritted my teeth when she asked me a question. Eventually she left the line when she realized she was too late for an earlier signing. I didn't want to be rude, but I would have been really mad if she didn't get off the line!!!
Random shot of the Penguin booth.
A side shot of Dennis Lehane. I almost had a perfect shot but that lady messed me up. The line moved again, so I couldn't get a better shot.
Her head is down but that is Molly Ringwald. I wanted to come up with something witty to say, but all I could muster was. "Hi. My name is Jael and thank you."
That is Adriana Trigiani, author of The Shoemaker's Wife. She was awesome. And the BEA gods were shining down on me because I was the last one to get a book. I felt bad for the 20+ people who were behind me who didn't get one.
The children's reading room at the Jefferson Market Library before the start of the Teen Author Carnival. I thought it was such a pretty room, I had to take a picture.
A panel at the Teen Author Carnival. I only stayed for one because I was tired. But I did win a box of books there, so it was all good.
My Ingram bag gave out when I took it out of my car at the end of the day. Darn!!! I was hoping to get two more days out of that bag!! Oh Well!!
I've been stuck in a rut and I decided I needed a creative outlet. This is it! I've been a self-professed bookaholic since age five, and one day I'm going to get my dream job in book publishing! Follow me on Twitter at bookangel224!!
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
