Stacking the Shelves (6)

Happy Saturday everyone! 

Here are the books I got this past week: (mostly contemporary, surprisingly)

From the library:


1. Winger, by Andrew Smith
2. Gilt, by Katherine Longshore

Bought from OCC Book Festival:

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of going to the Orange County Children's Book Festival, and met some really great authors and attended a panel on YA contemp. I met Jessi Kirby, author of Golden, Morgan Matson, author Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer, and Leila Howland, author of Nantucket Blue. Needless to say, I was kind of star-struck by their mere presence (duh they're like celebrities). We chatted about our favorite books and about writing novels. I am so glad I met these lovely ladies!  

1. Golden, by Jessi Kirby
2. Mooglass, by Jessi Kirby
3. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, by Morgan Matson
4. Second Chance Summer, by Morgan Matson
5. Nantucket Blue, by Leila Howland

All of the books I bought were autographed!

After the event, we took some pictures:
