In My Mailbox {75}: Book Events, Oh My!

In the past 2 weeks I had the pleasure of attending some amazing book events that brought some amazing authors to town.  First up was the Fierce Reads Book Tour in which Anna Banks, Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer Bosworth, Emmy Laybourne, & Ann Aguirre came to discuss their books with us.  All 5 of these ladies had us laughing! So much fun.

The next bookish event involved a lovely lady who writes some kickass vampire books - RICHELLE MEAD! Oh yes.  It was an honor to finally meet her and listen to her talk about the list of books she's working on & planning to write. Holy wow! This woman is crazy-amazing.  Below are some books I already owned + more I bought for the authors to sign.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks [goodreads]
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo [goodreads]
Struck by Jennifer Bosworth [goodreads]

Vampire Academy (VA, #1) by Richelle Mead [goodreads]
Shadow Kiss (VA, #3) by Richelle Mead [goodreads]
The Golden Lily by (Bloodlines, #2) Richelle Mead [goodreads]
(3 book signing limit for this event, so I chose my favorites + her new book!)
