Decatur Book Festival

So, on Saturday I went to the Decatur Book Festival. It was a blast to meet the authors and get books signed. :) Sadly, I was unable to attend the Blogger/Author Breakfast that Vania over at Reverie Book Reviews set up, but I did meet up with everyone later at Aimee Friedman(Sea Change and The Year My Sister Got Lucky) and Jackson Pearce's(As You Wish) event on supernatural romance. I was so excited to meet Aimee Friedman. She is so sweet and really cute. And I got my copy of Sea Change signed!!! That totally made my day. I love that book, and for that to be her first time writing in the supernatural genre, she did an amazing job. Jackson Pearce is adorable too, I just wish that I could have gotten her book signed, but the book store took their copies for sale before I could get one, so maybe I can catch her another time. :)


The second signing I attended was the event for Richelle Mead(Vampire Academy series) and Maggie Stiefvater(Shiver and Lament). This event was a Vampires and Werewolves smack-down. It was really cute to watch them both defend sides. During this event, I was able to purchase both of the books that these authors were there for. So now, I have a signed copy of Shiver and Vampire Academy! Both of these women are amazing, and so sweet. Oh, and super cute. It was so great to meet both of them and get my books signed.

Another author that I got to meet was Jennifer Jabaley. She was just attending the festival and the Blogger/Author Breakfast. I haven't read her book yet, but I am really looking forward to getting Lipstick Apology. Jennifer is such a sweetheart and I wish I had gotten a picture with her, but I guess I'll just have to wait until I get another opportunity. It was so much fun getting to meet these authors and getting my books signed. I'm so glad to have met all of them! I'll definitely be attending next year. :)
