Some Authors I Want To Meet

 

I’ve been super lucky living a little over an hour from a great indie bookstore that has tons of author events.  I’ve gone to quite a few and I’ve shared most here on my blog.  So today I thought I would do a post with some authors I really want to meet.

 

This obviously isn’t a full list.  That would be insanely long.  I’m going to just do 13 for today.  I couldn’t narrow it down to 10.

 

I’m not going to include any author that we’ve already had a live chat for on TBR and Beyond.  I want to meet all of them.

Author Event For Marissa Meyer

 

My husband and I attended a book event recently for Marissa Meyer.  It was hosted by Anderson’s Bookshop, but held outside the store at the local college.  Even though I haven’t read any of Marissa’s books yet (gasp), I knew I couldn’t miss this one.  I have quite a few of her books here, but I only brought one from home.

 

The event started with a costume contest.  There were quite a few people dressed up.

It finally looks like things are slowing down a bit.  I know this won’t last, but I’m actually kind of happy that there aren’t as many books coming out in December.  I may be missing some, but these are ones that I’m looking forward to or the ones that seem to be popular with others.

Review of White Stag by Kara Barbieri (digital arc)

White Stag by Kara Barbieri

 

The first book in a brutally stunning series where a young girl finds herself becoming more monster than human and must uncover dangerous truths about who she is and the place that has become her home.

As the last child in a family of daughters, seventeen-year-old Janneke was raised to be the male heir. While her sisters were becoming wives and mothers, she was taught to hunt, track, and fight. On the day her village was burned to the ground, Janneke—as the only survivor—was taken captive by the malicious Lydian and eventually sent to work for his nephew Soren.

Janneke’s survival in the court of merciless monsters has come at the cost of her connection to the human world. And when the Goblin King’s death ignites an ancient hunt for the next king, Soren senses an opportunity for her to finally fully accept the ways of the brutal Permafrost. But every action he takes to bring her deeper into his world only shows him that a little humanity isn’t bad—especially when it comes to those you care about.

Through every battle they survive, Janneke’s loyalty to Soren deepens. After dangerous truths are revealed, Janneke must choose between holding on or letting go of her last connections to a world she no longer belongs to. She must make the right choice to save the only thing keeping both worlds from crumbling.

Guest Post With Author Jason Walz (Last Pick)

 

I was so happy to get an e-mail from Jason last week about doing a guest post on my blog.  My husband and I just picked up his graphic novel and met him at the YA Lit Conference in Naperville, IL.

Three years ago, aliens invaded Earth and abducted everyone they deemed useful. The only ones spared were those too young, too old, or too “disabled” to be of value. Living on Earth under the aliens’ harsh authoritarian rule, humanity’s rejects do their best to survive. Their captors never considered them a threat―until now.

Twins Sam and Wyatt are ready to chuck their labels and start a revolution. It’s time for the kids last picked to step into the game.

In this first volume of Jason Walz’s dystopian graphic novel trilogy, the kids last picked are humanity’s last hope.
