Bay Area Book Festival + Sebastian Stan at Wizard World Comic Con? WHAT A MONTH. IT WAS THE BEST ONE OF THE YEAR! (Last June was crazy amazing, and this June is super crazy amazing. June is really looking to be my best month full of awesome events and people!)

WHAT’S UP?

I met Tim Federle, Jason Reynolds, Lauren Myracle, Stacey Lee, and Stephanie Kuehn at the Bay Area Book Festival! 

Last year, I didn’t get to attend panels, but this time around, I managed to get off my butt and actually attend go to a couple at the Bay Area Book Festival. It was amazing! I loved seeing so many people out and about because of books. I went to two panels—one about writing for tweens and teens with Tim Federle, Lauren Myracle, and Jason Reynolds, and one about writing where you live with Stacey Lee, Stephanie Kuehn, and Elizabeth Percer. It was fantastic hearing them talk. I wrote a post about what happened, so check that out.

I MET SEBASTIAN STAN AT WIZARD WORLD COMIC CON, AND I’M STILL SCREAMING.

STILL FOREVER SCREAMING IN JOY.

I MET THIS DORK. I’M JUST—I CAN’T BELIEVE I MET HIM. IT FEELS LIKE A DREAM. I’ve been in love with Sebastian Stan since before Gossip Girls (LMAO), and oh my god. WORTH EVERY PENNY I SPENT. IT WAS MAGICAL. MY FIRST COMIC CON, AND I MET SEBASTIAN STAN. I WAS IN HIS PRESENCE. I LOOKED INTO HIS EYES. HE SMILED AT ME. I GOT TO HUG HIM. HE SAID THINGS TO ME. I SAID THINGS TO HIM, AND I TOLD HIM I LOVED HIM. EVERY TIME I LOOK AT THE THINGS HE SIGNED, I HAVE A GOOFY GRIN ON MY FACE.

I also saw Hayley Atwell (!!!!!!!), Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Billy Boyd, and Ray Park. (I somehow missed seeing Jewel Staite which I’m bummed about.)

I wish I can recount every single detail that happened right now, but I’m hoping to write a recap about it because it deserves it’s own post. (Y’know if I’m ever able to process that I went to my first Comic Con and met Sebastian Stan. Like holy shit!) Be on the lookout for that.

I finally received my ticket to see Brand New and Modest Mouse at the end of July!

YEEEEEEEE. Having the ticket makes it real. I WILL SEE MY FAVE BAND, AND IT WILL BE AMAZING. PLEASE.

    The title of this post literally says it all! I am SO happy that you got to meet Sebastian Stan (and a wee bit jealous, because SEBASTIAN STAN) <3 He always seems like such a sweetheart :) Yay for a great June!

    EEK, it sounds like you had an amazing month! And ahh the cover for The Graces is SO PRETTY!

    Wizard World sounds amazing! I love comic conventions. Make them a part of your life regularly. I promise, it never gets old. I do love Sebastian Stan, even though I hated him in the Gossip Girl days because his character was such a slime… but he won my heart when he turned into an adorable, misunderstood one-armed assassin. *sighs* I’m glad you had fun. Have a blast at the Brand New/Modest Mouse concert too!

  7. It is SO cool that you got to meet him :D

    YEAY. I love The archived. That graphic novel from Snow White looks interesting, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts. I love the cover from The graces :)

    Happy reading!

  8. Great month and that is so cool about meeting all those authors!

    My June Recap!
