Book Blogger Hop: February 9th-15th

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

Question:
What authors have you met and where? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews)

Answer:
A fair amount. All at the Tucson Festival of Books. I'll post pictures.

2013 - I met Maggie Stiefvater, Gayle Forman, & Elizabeth Eulberg! I'm standing between Maggie and Gayle and my friend Kylee is between Gayle and Elizabeth.

2013 Also - Tamara Ireland Stone. She took extra time to talk to us after her panel. So cool!

2014 - Suzanne Young! I was so excited to finally meet her! She lives in AZ like me and is always doing signings in Tempe but I never get the chance to go up there. So I was excited she was in Tucson!!!

2014 - Aprilynne Pike

2014 - Ilsa J. Bick

2014 - Page Morgan

I actually also met Deborah Harkness & Jessica Khoury in 2015, but don't have a picture. This was the year I went more for my mother in law since she wanted to see a bunch of people. :)

I have some authors I want to see at this years festival. I'm hoping hard I get the time to go. This years lineup includes Veronica Roth, Gloria Chao, Kristen Simmons, Victoria Aveyard, Holly Black, Cinda Williams Chima, Melissa Marr & Zoraida Cordova! The YA lineup hasn't been this strong since 2013/2014!!

    1. Thanks! It is! I wouldn't get the chance to meet a lot of authors otherwise. Besides for the festival, authors rarely come to Tucson. Lol

    1. I have! I feel so lucky! If it wasn't for the festival the list would be non existent. Lol. I've made a few people feel that way when they learn who all I've met.
