So, expect a lot of great giveaways in the upcoming months! I am unfamiliar with a lot of these books, but I have heard great things about all of them. I got a lot of recommendations from fellow YA bloggers. Everything was organized nicely this year - I didn't see any of the fighting that was reported last year, in fact, most of the people there were very helpful. In fact, on blogger told me about The Raven Boys giveaway and held my place in line for Lauren Kate.
I did an awful lot of fan-girling - SQUEEING! and the such. I wasn't even the oldest one in line for a change!
I also picked up a really cool Allegiant bag from Veronica Roth, she was signing posters but I had no way to get it home without ruining it. I plan on giving that away when I get home! I am sure someone will appreciate it! Unfortunately with traveling from California to NYC, stuff is expensive to ship, so I can't bring home alot. I did meet Melissa De la Cruz -- what a wonderful person! I did pick up an extra copy of Minds of Salem which I will giveaway some time in July!
I am sure there is a lot that I am forgetting but as brain starts to function again, I will post more.
