In My Mailbox + Kiersten White's Signing

Kiersten White was in Dallas this week to celebrate Supernaturally's release, so of course I went. I love those books, and that woman, and seeing as to how there is a character named after me in the book then I HAD to have Kiersten Sign my page. And yes. She did sign it. With a heart. Yep. Awesome.

So with that, I bring you guys what books I got this week, and some photos from the signing. Yay!

For Review:
Prized (Birthmarked #2) by Caragh M. O'Brien

Won From Mindi Scott:
Totally marked up copy of Freefall with notes from her on EVERY page. It. Is. Amazing. 

Supernaturally by Kiersten White
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Kiss of Death (Scarlett Wakefield #4) by Lauren Henderson
Sometimes it Happens by Lauren Barnholdt
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan

So that was what I got this week! IMM is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

Now for the pics from Kiersten's signing! And let me say, this woman is seriously hysterical. I cannot even describe how great it is to listen to her talk, and all the tangents she takes, and the natural humor that pretty much finds its way into every sentence she says. If you ever have the chance to go to one of her signings or events, GO. No excuses.

She looks so innocent. I suspect she's not. I also can't tell you what she was actually talking about here, but at one point she said how awesome Texas is so we'll go with that. Because she's right.

About to read her favorite passage in the book! It's a good one too...

Signing! But not my book, because I kind of forgot to take the picture while she signed mine, so this is for my best friend. Which is kind of like me by proxy so it works.

And obligatory photo time! I feel so tall... 

So there you have it! My wee in books and authorly stuff. Yay!
