In the meantime, I'm putting my Christmas money to good use. Thanks to Katie at Doing Dewey, I found out about the Rochester Teen Book Festival, taking place this year on May 17. I looked into it, and I am SO EXCITED that this event is basically going on in my backyard. They have a really awesome lineup of authors coming this year, and I can't wait to go!
But what is a book festival without books to be signed??
Therefore, please lay eyes on my book haul in prep for Rochester TBF:
(I know I could buy them at the festival and some of the proceeds would go back to the event, but...sorry, I had Amazon gift cards, and I'm cheap. GOT MOUTHS TO FEED, Y'ALL.)
I have heard of all of these books/authors but, astoundingly, never read any of them! (Actually, I did read The Last Summer of You and Me by Ann Brashares a while back, but I gave away my copy, so I decided to buy Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants instead.) My goal before May 17 is to read them all, and then get them signed. WOO!!
How about you, readers? Attending any great book festivals this year? (Don't even tell me if you're going to BEA, cuz I'm totes jealous.) And if you're going to TBF, let me know!!
