In My Mailbox (30): Breathless Reads Tour Edition


Happy Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, I can tell you that I did (despite my 12+ hour car ride from NY to NC but I digress). Friday happened to the the Breathless Reads Tour date at Books Of Wonder in NYC so, after asking my dad and pleading, he took me after school. I drove half way there (only have my permit and am terribly afraid of them city taxi drivers) and my dad drove the rest. But after sitting in stop and go traffic, we missed the Q & A but still made it for the book signing! After getting my green number ticket and purchasing BORN WICKED I was able to get my books signed by the lovely ladies! It was such a grand experience, seeing as it was my first ever time attending a book tour, and I am excited for more tours to come along my path in the future!

Wow, so many amazing books and the signed editions are just so gorgeous! It's too bad that you missed the Q&A, but I'm sure there will be many other chances for that!

Also, I feel you on the taxi drivers. I would never even contemplate driving in NYC! ;)

Amazing books and happy reading!

How fun that you got to go to the Breathless Reads tour! I wish more events like this happened near me. A friend of mine grabbed Across the Universe for me and had it signed by Beth Revis. Yours looks just like mine! Same color and everything! Very cool. I'd love Born Wicked and Legend too. You're so lucky! I'm really interested in The Pregnancy Project, so I'll have to keep an eye out for your review. :) Thanks for stopping by my IMM earlier! Have a happy reading week!
