Swag
Firelight swag courtesy of Sophie Jordan for her street team. I'll be handing these out around here and giving some away on the blog. :) 

Speaking of Firelight, Sophie Jordan has a contest up and running on her website. She has a TON of books up for grabs, so you should definitely check it out! You can find the contest here.

Smart Chicks Kick It in Brampton!

I was super happy that I could go to this event! I brought my bag o' books, my camera, and my fiance. He helped hold the books, and also took some pictures! Thank you Duane, you were a very patient man during that looong wait in line. :D I would LOVE to thank all of the authors for being there! It was a pleasure to meet you all! In order of appearance, Margaret Stohl, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Melissa de la Cruz, Jeri Smith-Ready, Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong, and Alyson Noel. Kami was listed on the roster of attending authors, but unfortunately she wasn't able to be there. I hope you are feeling better soon Kami! :) 
Chatting with Margie.
Chatting with Jen, Melissa and Jeri. Spent too much time chatting with them so I couldn't say too much to Melissa Marr. Especially didn't get to say that I LOVE Seth (and all of her books!) :(
Yes, the books you see on the table are all mine. :) I was bad, Kelley signed 4 of my books instead of the limit of 3. ;) Thank you Kelley!
Didn't get a chance to talk to Alyson either, though she signed Radiance for me. They were pushing us through quickly so the authors wouldn't be late to the Teen Read Awards ceremony! Duane also mentioned that he didn't get a good picture of Alyson... I didn't realize that meant I didn't have any other pictures of her! :( I like her hair though! :)

Other news?

Anyway, I think that is it for me this week... all of the current contests on the blog are listed on the sidebar. The Wind Warrior giveaway names will be drawn in the next few days and passed along to Cynthia. (I will be getting mailing addresses at that time in the event that any of the people who entered on my blog win one of her grand prizes.) She will then compile the 5 names picked from each blog and will announce the grand prize winners. Good luck everyone! :) 

That's what I received in my mailbox this week, what did you get in yours?

Oh, HUGE mailbox you have, huh!? These are some awesome books, especially Whisper, which I hope you love even more than I already do. Also, Shadow Kiss seems so delicious, doesn't it? I can't wait to devour it. Enjoy! :D

Chrystal said...

I am glad you had fun at Smart Chicks... I did too. :) I drove from Kingston to be there yesterday. :)

I got Alyson to sign an extra copy of Radiance for a giveaway on my blog and she loved that it was my first giveaway ever. :)

Gret pic with Margaret Stohl... she was a hoot!

@Raila, haha, yes, but it encompasses two weeks, so I don't feel so bad splurging... ;) I can't wait to read Whisper, and Shadow Hills either! I'm glad you enjoyed Whisper so much! :D I agree, I can't wait to devour Shadow Hills either! :D Hope you are having a great weekend, and happy reading!

@Chrystal, Thanks! That must have been quite the drive! When did you get there? We got there about an hour before the signing and were over in the stacks, almost in the YA section, where did they have you waiting in the line? That is awesome! I felt so bad because I didn't get a chance to talk to Alyson at all! So I'm happy you were able to and that you have a second copy for your giveaway. Yay! :D Haha, I agree, Margaret Stohl was a hoot! Loved how she said that she gave Kami an ulcer and that's why she wasn't there... lol. :) Happy reading!

@Trillian, Thanks! I'll check out the reviews! :) Happy reading!

@TheBookMogul, Yep, just a few eh! lol. I agree Take me There does look good. I hadn't heard much about it before Kari mentioned that she was going to the signing and wondered if I wanted her to pick up a copy... :) Hope you have a great weekend, and happy reading! :D

@kirsty at the overflowing library, Thank you! Sorry you weren't able to visit the tour. :( Hope you get to meet the authors at different events then, eh? :) Happy reading! :)
