The most awesome thing ever!
I had been contacted by Penguin to do an interview with the authors before the event started… Um, can I just stop right here for a moment and say I . Love. Being. A. Book. Blogger! How else would I have ever gotten the chance to stand in in a room to interview 5 amazing authors? Anyway, when the authors arrived at Fiction Addiction they turned to the book store owner and said
“We are supposed to meet with a blogger.”
I can not tell you how excited I was to be that blogger
This is some of the interview:
Each author was so genuine and nice. I loved that each said they love hearing from fans and that one of the best things about being an author is knowing that others get so excited about and love the work they created.
One thing that Beth Revis said that really stuck with me was:
YA is the beating heart of literature.
I could not agree more. No matter what genre I am reading, I always go back to YA.
