Kiersten White and Ally Condie

There are so many author events going on!!!

Kiersten White at Teen Book Fest

Kiersten had a fun presentation. She talked about how we don't live in a book, and we aren't the chosen one, but it's okay.

Kiersten never got a letter from Hogwarts

She never developed cool mutant powers and joined the X-men. 

She never got to choose a faction and be divergent (and date Theo James).

It was a fun speech. Since we don't live in a book and aren't the chosen ones, our choices won't destroy the world, we won't have a crappy 2nd book, and we aren't in peril. She also talked about choosing ourselves and becoming whoever we want to be.

Kiersten signing my book. I'm so excited to read this one!

Ally Condie's Launch Party

Ally talked about her new book, Atlantia.
It is a Little Mermaid retelling in a Dystopian world. I'm really excited to read it!

Here is me and Jenni talking to Courtney.

Suey and me and our books!
Jenni won an extra copy of Atlantia, and she gave it to me!!! SO AWESOME! Jenni is the best! (And not because she gave me a book)

The three musketeers!
These two have become my besties! Love these ladies!

Ally signing her book!

  1. Great recaps! And now I need to write mine! :)

  2. Both of these events were so much fun. Great recap! :) The picture of us talking to Courtney is funny. I look like I'm arguing or something, lol.

  3. Yay! I love book signings :) Kiersten White's presentation looks super cute and inspiring. And I'm intrigued by Allie Condie's book...The Little Mermaid in a Dystopian setting?? Interested to see how you like it! P.S. Love the peace signs. That is also my go-to pose, hahaha.
