I went to the Adult Author Breakfast (which was awesome, and I took lots of notes, and I can't wait to share insights with all of you), and I saw one of my favorite adult authors, Barbara Kingsolver:
I went to the YA Editors Buzz panel! Only some people were jerks and took all of the ARCs of Crewel and What's Left of Me! So I was sad! But I did three other awesome ARCs, so suck it, greedy pushy people!
I also met Malinda Lo in real life! And she signed a copy of Adaptation for me! (And no, I don't know what I'm doing with my hand in this picture.)
I got to see Mary Casanova with her new book Frozen, which I helped beta-read, so it was super-awesome to see it on shelves!
Then I wandered the floor a lot and got about sixty pounds of books and swag which is a LOT to carry around (note to future BEA-ers: BAG CHECK IS YOUR FRIEND), so then I was tired and ate Korean food with Corinne Duyvis. (With whom I did not get a picture because I am an idiot!)
I got to meet even more of the fabulous Forever Young Adult crew at the Apocalypsies event (which was crazy-busy with wonderful people and authors so I didn't get any pictures). Meghan, Jenny, Sarah: HOLLA!
I had a surprise meet-up with Kate Milford! (And you can find the picture of me with her puppet Lish on Twitter.)
Then I got to have dinner with two of my favorite bookish people around, Lyn Miller-Lachmann and Neesha Meminger! You should read their books! Because they are great!
And then my mom and I carried crazy amounts of books ten blocks between the restaurant and the subway station and now my back and shoulders hate me! So!
GOOD DAY, PEOPLE! SEE YOU TOMORROW!
