Hello TBF readers!
As you all know, TBF is literally right around the corner! TBF blogger, Katie shares her experience at TBF last year! Take a look:
TBF was definitely an amazing experience (how could it not be- it was a day devoted to books). I’ve been an attendee for the past two years and have enjoyed it so much both times. Obviously, the best part was meeting the authors. Last year, I managed to get in to see Ally Condie, author of Matched. Together, several other teens and I, got to hear all about what actually inspired her to write the series and what her thought process was. Then we got to ask any questions we had about her series or her as an author. It was like being inside an author’s brain- but in a non-creepy way. Later, there was book signing where you actually got to talk to the author yourself and deliver a short 30-second speech about why their books are the best things known to man actually that was probably only me. Before the signing, of course, is book buying. If you are so inspired by one of the author’s talks (or, like me forgot to bring your own books), then Barnes and Noble has a whole table set up for you to buy their work. Bring money. As much money as you can. Believe me, you will not regret it.
Verdict: TBF gets a thumbs-up from Dumbledore and the odds may always be in its favor.
Thank you so much Katie!
Talk to you guys again!
