Harlequin Teen: STAR STUDDED


Last night, I was lucky enough to go to the amazing hotel, The Trump Soho in NYC for Harlequin Teen's "Star Studded" event. I even saw REBEL WILSON in the lobby!!! REBEL FREAKEN WILSON. I was so star struck I didn't even ask for a picture. Next time NYC, next time.  

Any who, the event was filled with amazing Harlequin people, agents, bloggers, librarians, and of course JLA and Julie Kagawa! And honestly, who wants to read me blabbing on... so I'll just photo bomb you all with captions! Enjoy! :)

This is basically how my event began...




Floor number 46! My ears didn't even pop!


Oh hi, that's me!


The amazing view!

WHITE HOT KISS.


Julie's big reveal! OOOooooh. (Photo cred: Dee from GCR)

 Pawn and Crash Into You Displays

 The amazing JLA and myself!


I heart her too :)


Me attempting to photo bomb JLA and Dee. BAHA.

 The super sweet Julie Kagawa and myself!


The lovely Lisa Wray from Harlequin and I!


(L to R) Julie, Jen, and Natashya from Harlequin!




JLA talks about her upcoming book WHITE HOT KISS!

And then Julie...




Talks about her Iron Fey Series!!

BUT...


OH Julie has big news and it's.... Dragons?!!?!?




IT DOES!!! So stoked for this series!!!



 Julie with her newly revealed title!! (That is not the real cover)


Myself and the lovely covers!


Me taking night shots of the city because I CAN.

So, I couldn't go to this amazing even and not leave with goodies... right?! RIGHT. Because Harlequin is so awesome!!!

Can I just say (don't take this the wrong way) but I love how small you are compared to everyone in the pictures. It's adorable. I'm only 3 inches taller so I don't have much to say. Julie's series look and sounds fabulous. Excited to read them. But i'm really looking forward to White Hot Kiss and Crash Into You like everyone else's seems to be. Thank you so much for sharing all these amazing things. It means alot.
