    I just want to say I wish I lived in TX. I should have thought about this ahead of time and tried to stay with my aunt in TX...Why am I just thinking about this now?! lol.

  6. WOW! I had no idea this event was happening! I'd love to go if I can convince my boyfriend to drive from Baton Rouge to Houston on Friday night. I have a feeling I'd be nervous around the authors, since I'm not a very outgoing person,
    but it would be an amazing experience! Do you know what the dress code is? Casual, semi formal, etc.?
    Thanks for posting.

  7. So many awesome authors your so lucky

  8. Stephanie Perkins?!?!?! Ahhh, I really want to meet her.

    Oh wait. See you in two days. ;)

  10. I live in Austin, TX, but am so sad to not be able to make it to the teen book con. But I am going to be at TLA later this month and a few of the authors at The Teen Book Con are going to be there. So excited for TLA!! Ally Condie and Tera Lynn Childs are going to be there! Squeal!


  11. I may have to give you my wallet when I get there because I'm afraid I'm going to want to buy a bajillion books and not be allowed back on the plane. But seriously, I am so PUMPED to be coming down there and attending this with you - epic blogger meetup!!!

  12. Wowzers! lol I really wish right about now that I lived in Houston, Texas! But sadly I don't so have fun =)
