Something very cool!!!

I went to Books of Wonder yesterday to support some very cool authors and meet some new ones!!!

Here's what happened in a nutshell:
  1. I reconnected with Emma McLaughlin, Nicola Kraus, Barry Lyga, Daniel & Dina Nayeri who are verrryyyyy awesometastic!!
  2. Introduced myself to Jon Skovron coz Heidi asked me to ask him to "break a leg"! Struts &Frets sounds so cool! And its been highly recommended to me! (I will read it soon! I promise)
  3. Finally introduced myself to Bennett Madison (The Blond of the Joke) after seeing him at a TON of events around NYC!
  4. I met Alicia Thompson (Psych major Syndrome- WHICH I AM DYING TO READ!! Hello?!?!? Guess who's taking Psych and keeps self-analyzing them-self? *looks around* Me? Um yeah.. about that....)
  5. Tom Dolby (Secret Society) and he was giving away cool tattoos of the ankh.
  6. And got to know Gordam Korman (Pop) , Anna Godberson ( the Luxe series), Sara Shepard (Pretty Little Liars).
And the most important of all.......

JOHN GREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You might say that um I go to events in NYC all the time and I might be a over-reacting a little but um hello?!?! HE DOESN'T LIVE IN NYC! He wasn't even supposed to be there!

So there was some major fangirling going on. And some hyperventilating. And some speechlessness. And some making-a-fool-out-of-ones self-ness going on. Believe me there will be mention of this in a VLOG soon!

I even have proof!!!

Barry Lyga with John Green

I was only hyperventilating, not hallucinating. xD

Until next time!!

Traveling to Teens - Lady MacBeth's Daughter by Lisa Klein

Albie has grown up with no knowledge of her mother of her father, the powerful Macbeth। Instead she knows the dark lure of the Wychelm Wood and the moors, where she’s been raised by three strange sisters। It’s only when the ambitious Macbeth seeks out the sisters to foretell his fate that Albia’s life becomes tangled with the man who leaves nothing but bloodshed in his wake। She even falls in love with Fleance, Macbeth’s rival for the throne. Yet when Albia learns that she has the second sight, she must decide whether to ignore the terrible future she foresees—or to change it. Will she be able to save the man she loves from her murderous father? And can she forgive her parents their wrongs, or must she destroy them to save Scotland from tyranny?

In her highly anticipated follow-up to Ophelia, Lisa Klein delivers a powerful reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, featuring a young woman so seamlessly drawn it seems impossible she was not part of the Bard’s original play.
