NOW, don't kill me but I barely have any pictures from Day 2. x-x (I relied on my dad to take pics of ALA like he did on Saturday, but... he got lazy too. EPIC FAIL.)
I do have pictures of my book haul later in the post, so if you want to skip this text filled part of the post, then by all means, go ahead~
Interesting Things That I Can Recall from Sunday (AKA Day 2)
A) I got there around 9:30ish and I wandered just for a bit till I found Kristin (again)!
B) Kristin and I went to Disney-Hyperion's booth and those lovely people over there gladly gave us the galleys we asked for. (Of course we asked in a very nice, almost shy kind of manner.)
For me, I asked for The Archived by Victoria Schwab and Poison by Bridget Zinn! :D I was SO excited to see that they had galleys of Poison. It was one of the books that made my day!
C) I ended up meeting Ishita (The Reading Fish) and Zareen (Reach for the Stars... And the Books!) (FINALLY!) in the morning and they are such SUPER uber awesome people!
It was a shame I didn't hang out with them for the entire time, but we did hang out for a bit. :)
D) For most of the time, my group consisted of: Kristin (Beneath Shining Stars, I Read), Molly AKA Usagi (Birth of a New Witch), Jill (Swimming in YA), my dad, and Kristin's HILARIOUS mom.
E) For about a half hour, Jill and I went on an adventure to go find a mango smoothie! We wandered about in the non-bookish exhibit hall for like a half hour. We asked for directions after a while, and it turns out that the mango smoothies were in a WAY different part of the convention center.
Fail. (It was fun though!)
F) I attended a few signings, sent my dad off to other signings I couldn't make, stalked the publisher booths, and did some other things that I cannot remember for the life of me.
Huge Thank Yous to These Publishers and their Publicists
Disney-Hyperion, Harper-Collins, Penguin, Harlequin TEEN, and Macmillian! You guys were so AWESOME and just plain out friendly. I enjoyed talking to all of your publicists and thank you so much for the galleys you gave me! <3
ALA Book Haul
The moment you've all been waiting for (or not been waiting for since you may have just skipped here), MY ALA BOOK HAUL! YAAAY.
Okay, I don't really know how many books I got. (I didn't want to count.) I did organize the books by their release date though. :3
|Ignore my shoes. BUT YES! Swag! :D|
