OKAY, JUNE MAY BE IN THE RUNNING FOR THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR, BECAUSE OH MY GOD, IT SERIOUSLY IS, MAINLY FOR ONE REASON: ALA + MEETING FRIENDS! <3
KELLY CAME TO CALIFORNIAAAAAA.
YES. SHE DID. JUST IN TIME FOR ALA.
Her decision to accompany me to ALA was pretty late in the game, but whatever because she came! I was very happy because she was the first person in the book blogosphere I became friends with and the first book blogging person I met in person. Yeeeeeee. I had a blast showing her around (but oh my god, my feeeeettttt!).
ALA was the best event in the world!
SERIOUSLY THE BEST.
Book conventions are events that every reader and book lover should attend at least once in their life. It’s pure heaven!
I won’t bore you with the details (since I’m planning to write recap posts about it), but here are the awesome things that happened: I got awesome books that I’m really excited about; met Kelly, Nikki, Angie, Katie, Sydney, Vanessa, Anya, and Tabitha; took a selfie with my favorite author Patrick Ness; talked with publishers + librarians about books; attended the DC Comics panel; had an amazing conversation with Brenden Fletcher (writer of Batgirl, Gotham Academy, + Black Canary); and many more!
