Here I am with a recap of BEA Day 2! :)
Wednesday, June 6th 2012. BEA Day 2
First thing in the morning was the Children's Breakfast!!
Chris Colfer was totally hilarious! He was an excellent host and I loved how he introduced and explain the evolution of his debut middle-grade novel The Land of Stories! Im SO excited to read it :)
Then, it was John Green's speech and I went totally nuts! His speech was so motivating! Love him <3
Then, Lois Lowry left me with tears in my eyes and everybody got up from their seat after her speech. Seriously, the standing ovation was the least she deserved after sharing such heart-warming, sad yet beautiful speech. It was so moving --_--...
And finally, Kadir Nelson introduced his book and the process he went through to get such beautiful images!!
Here I am at the table with these lovely girls whose company was a blessing!
From L-R: Liz, Claire Legrand (author of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls), Britney (from I Eat Words), Donna, Me and Frankie (from Frankie Diane)!
*thanks a lot to Frankie for this picture! I have the same one but mine came out blurry sniff!*

Then I went to Becca's signing at the S&S booth! I also got a beautiful Hush, Hush t-shirt which I'll show on my BEA haul :) yay!

And while I was waiting on the line-up for the Dark Days signing, Rachel and Mee Chelle (two lovely, awesome and super kind and sweet girls I met that day) told me to go to Marie Lu's signing at the Penguin booth because the line was moving fast and that I should hurry in case they were about to run out of tickets. In the end, they saved my place at the harper line-up and I went to Marie Lu's signing and I got my copy of Prodigy! OMG!!!
Thank you SO much Rachel and Mee Chelle! I wouldn't have made it without your help! =D
Oh Prodigy... OH YEAH!!
An then, We finally made it to the front of the Harper booth!!! Elizabeth Norris - Unraveling, Veronica Roth - Insurgent, Bethanny Griffin - Mask of the Red Death and Aprilynne Pike - Destined, were in the booth!! Kyaaaaaa! Dude, BEA is HEAVEN!!!
Then I went to Libba Bray's signing! Cant wait to read The Diviners OMG!
Btw, the line-up for this signing was Huuuuuuge! and the "tickets" they gave for this signing was a beautiful tiny pouch with a Diviner's card and a super nice Diviners' necklace ^_^ <3
I also went to other signings, I met more people, had a wonderful time walking around and getting more books but I just don't really remember everything XD.
And that's t for now ^___^
