Chicago ALA 2013

OMG!!  I got to go to Chicago ALA this year with one of my best friends and fellow blogger, Mindy from Books Complete Me.  We had a fantastic time and it was an experience that I will never forget!

I came home with 52 books for some light reading....hahaha...and was thrilled with some of the books that I snagged!!  I also was able to meet some great authors!!


I got to Meet Simone!!!


OMG!!!  It's Marie Lu!!




Now, I had a TOTAL fan girl moment here....I LOVE D.J. MacHale...I read all the Pendragon series with my oldest son when he was growing up.  I shared that with him and he loved it.  Lucky for me, I had a bunch of bookplates and he was SO kind to sign 10 of them so I could have the whole series signed!!


It's Jennifer Armentrout!!  Got to chat with her for a while over at the Spencer Hill booth because I am friends with them!!


Patrick Ness....Loved his accent!!


AMANDA!!!


Jonathon Maberry....ROT ON!!  That's what he signed in my book...so stinkin cool!!

It was a great experience, and if you ever get a chance to go to one, you should.  Next year it's in LAS VEGAS!!  I so plan on going!!  

I also got to meet a bunch of my TwilightMom friends, who I have been talking to online for years.  Without them, my life would not be complete. I have been given so many friendships, and my love for reading.  Without them, I would have never found the book blogging world!
