What did I do yesterday on my day off from the bookstore? I went to the bookstore of course, to meet Lauren Kate and get her latest book signed!
I sort of realized I’m a little behind in my Lauren Kate reading. I own all her books, but I don’t think I’ve read them all. There are two I need to read…But that’s okay. I will get to them. A) Her covers are just too pretty, B) The romance in them is so addicting, and C) Lauren Kate, herself, is just so awesome.
I loved getting a chance to hear what inspired her, how her writing process works, and what it feels like to be done with a whole YA series. She mentioned a new book she was working on (separate from this series) and I’m excited to see what else Lauren Kate will write! She was just such a fun person to listen to. You could tell that she is one of those lucky people who just loves what they get paid to do.
I also loved how focused her fans were. I swear it was the quietest line I ever waited in, to get a book signed. All the girls in front of me and behind me were focused on what Lauren Kate was saying to each individual. At first this weirded me out a little. But, then I joined in and learned that movie rights were released for Fallen!
I have to give points to Barnes and Noble for just being so awesome and having another fantastic signing. I’m glad I spent my time off there.
Picture time! Here’s one of me with Lauren Kate!
And here’s my signed copy of Rapture!
