Book Blitz: Fifty First Times: A New Adult Anthology

So the bloggers who participate in this book blitz can either share a Q&A that they gave us or tell a 'first time' story. Since I've probably shared a lot of Q&As I'm gonna tell you about the first time I met an author!

This is going to be a little long but bear with me. It was such a great day for me!
The first time I met an author wasn't so long ago actually. It was back in November (2013) at the book fair in Antwerp that takes place every year. The author I met was Lauren Kate who wrote the Fallen books and her new one Teardrop (which she was on tour for). When I saw that she was coming I just knew I had to go to her signing because although a lot of authors come to the book fair, it isn't usually one I have actually read quite some books from and actually love them. The year before however I would've had the chance to meet Alison Noel but on the day she was supposed to come I was sick with fever so I couldn't go. Even more reason for me to want to see Lauren Kate. When the day came I was so flipping nervous. I managed to drag my friend Melissa with me so at least I wasn't alone there. It took us quite a while to actually find the part of the book fair where Lauren would be coming and there was already a pretty long line but it was actually really fun waiting because i was surrounded by people who were talking about Kate and holding her new book Teardrop. I was actually bonding a little with the people behind me. It was a mother and her daughter of 13 or 14 I guess and the daughter was saying how she didn't want to ask Kate for a picture because she was a little shy and I told her I was also asking for a picture and that she should just go for it because a lot of people were getting pictures. They were really nice people.
Anyway... so when it was finally my turn to get my book of Teardrop (and my copy of Fallen that I had brought with me) signed I was so excited. Lauren was super nice and she told me she liked my nailpolish so I was in heaven for sure! I told her I had a blog and she asked me if I reviewed books. So awesome. This was such a great day and I'm hoping this year another author I read will come signs book. I'll definitely be there.
This has turned into such a rant sort of but whatever! :D
