So while everyone is away at book con and bea this year, I went with a friend to Rochester, NY for a huge signing event. There were about 34 authors. They have it every year. Got to say is was so much fun going and talking to the authors. Even before the authors came out I won an free book. Been so tired after the long weekend so finally blogging.
Got myself the squeal to the undertow series by Micheal Buckley. Did a nice review on my blog here once. Here the summary to the first book undertow:
Sixteen-year-old Lyric Walker’s life is forever changed when she witnesses the arrival of 30,000 Alpha, a five-nation race of ocean-dwelling warriors, on her beach in Coney Island. The world’s initial wonder and awe over the Alpha quickly turns ugly and paranoid and violent, and Lyric’s small town transforms into a military zone with humans on one side and Alpha on the other. When Lyric is recruited to help the crown prince, a boy named Fathom, assimilate, she begins to fall for him. But their love is a dangerous one, and there are forces on both sides working to keep them apart. Only, what if the Alpha are not actually the enemy? What if they are in fact humanity’s only hope of survival? Because the real enemy is coming. And it’s more terrifying than anything the world has ever seen.
Action, suspense, and romance whirlpool dangerously in this cinematic saga, a blend of District 9 and The Outsiders.
Now onto the fun stuff waiting in line to get all my books sign. Meet about 6 authors I wanted to meet and talk to some I did not have the books for yet. Some authors I meet are Rachel Hawkins, Scott Westerfeld, Ellen Hopkins, Jennifer Donnelly, Ridley Pearson, Tamora Pierce, Suzanne Young, Laurie Halse Anderson… They were all so nice.
Now this last author I want to mention is Susanna Young, want to give her a nice shout out. Even if I have yet read any of her books, which she knows. Will have to start a book fund to read her books one day. She was so nice and remember me from facebook and wanted to see me. So one of these days or next event with her gonna try to have finally read the program series. She is very so sweet.
Now will leave you off with all my sign books. So happy reading, bloggers and those who read this!
