Lauren DeStefano, Cassie Clare, and Holly Black @ Books of Wonder in NYC

Last night I went to see Lauren DeStefano (for the first time), Cassie Clare (for the third time), and Holly Black (for the second time) at Books Of Wonder in NYC. It was my first time in NYC and I loved it! Don't think I could ever live there, but I loved being there! :D

I also got to hang out and meet some awesome fellow bloggers! JL from An Avid Reader’s Musings, Damaris, Wanda, and Emma from Good Choice Reading, and Rachel from Book Shelf Lust. They're all AWESOME so if you haven't stalked their sites, tweeted at them, or anything... you should def consider it!

All three of these authors answered so many questions. One of my favorites was something along the lines of "If Chairman Meow and Church were in a closet 'getting it on' and Alec walked in what would happen?" *mad bursts of laughter* I forget which one, but Cassie informed us one of them is fixed. Hah! Cassie also mentioned one of the hardest scenes for her to write was at the end of Clockwork Prince, and man I hope that scene is Jem because well... TEAM WILL ALL THE WAY!

During the signing, Cassie recognized me from Twitter which I thought was pretty dang cool! Said, I looked like my picture.. I think that's a good thing! I was happy :) hah. It could have also been because I've met her three times. Either way, I was stoked and I always have a great time at her signings! :)

Also, Lauren DeStefano is SO nice, like incredibly super nice! I adored Wither (if you have not read it GO READ IT! I will be giving away a copy as well!) I cannot wait for the sequel, which revealed today is called FEVER. Isn't that just awesomely perfect?! At the signing she also gave away a sample/preview to book 2 and I will be giving away one of those as well! I just have to mention I am IN LOVE with the cover of Wither and cannot wait to see how beautiful the cover of FEVER will be.

And as always Holly Black was incredibly funny and apparently one of her favorite scenes she's written is a speech in Black Heart, so can't wait to read that! Speaking of Black Heart, at the signing she gave away a sample/preview for BLACK HEART, and let me tell you... OH MAN I CANNOT WAIT. I needs that book like yesterday! So if you haven't read White Cat or Red Glove, well get up and go buy them!!
