So I did something last night that I’ve never done before. I went to my first author Q&A and book signing! I know, book crazy girl like me, I should be going to these events all the time. After last night, I don’t know why I haven’t been going to author events for years. I got a chance to meet and speak with Marissa Meyer, author of The Lunar Chronical’s (and I’m currently reading book 2: Scarlet). Although we spent a lot of time on our feet, the wait was worth it. Marissa gave a great talk, had tons of funny anecdotes, and was witty and quick with her answers. She seems like a very down-to-Earth woman with a lot of brilliant ideas. She really connected with her audience (there was a turnout of well over 100 people). I had a ton of fun. Plus, I was introduced to a bunch of Canadian book bloggers to whom I want to say thank you for making my first author signing a wonderful event!
Plus I got this little momento from the evening:
I’m hooked. What a fun way to get to know the author just a little bit more. Keep your eyes out for more reviews soon!
