Fierce Reads Tour Recap

Fierce Reads Tour
Event Recap
The Picture Edition
June 9th 2012
Third Place Book in Lake Forest Park

Pre-Event Dinner
Before the event two other bloggers Benji, Sarah and I had dinner and chatted about books. This was really fun and I'm so glad Benji suggested it. I hope I can do this more often for other events in the future.
Me, Benji & Sarah

Benji being a good sport so I could set up my camera and flash for the event

The Event
I love multi author events, they are always so much fun, especially when the authors have already had a few tour stops together and you can really see their fun dynamic playing off of each other. There was lots of laughs throughout the entire event and I had an absolute blast. I won't be posting about any of the Q&A topics, too much to try and remember from this awesome event. Some of the other blogger recaps did post  the info, you can find the links to their posts at the bottom of the post. I on the other hand captured lots of fun pictures.

Lish McBride, Marissa Meyer, Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer Bosworth, Anna Banks & Emmy Laybourne

 I can't remember exactly what the context of this picture was, but it was a fun and entertaining moment

The Book Trailers
 Each author's book trailer was presented before they talked a little bit about their book

Signing Their Books
 Anna from Peace, Love, Teen Fiction

Look I got a picture of Daniel Marks again author of Velveteen coming out in October

A few of the girls posed for me while they were signing my books

Group Photos

They are so fierce with two other bloggers Benji and Sarah

 All the girls holding up the awesome book necklaces Anna made for them all

In summary the event was AWESOME and I really hope they all will come back to Seattle for future book tours. I hope you enjoyed the photos that I took.

The Books
All the books I took with me to get signed at the event. The four most current ARCs, plus a finished copy of every authors book. The second copy of Struck and Cinder are for a friend that couldn't make the event. 

The Sweet Swag

Great re-cap! So glad you all could make it!

Oh, and that top picture was when they were playing the awkward song that went on for FOREVER. I'm holding an imaginary lighter. (Obviously!)^.~
