Book Haul #19

A book haul feature that shares items, such as books and swag, that I received within the week. 

Note: From now on I will be doing these book hauls on Sundays instead of IMM's. It's still the same concept, but just not under than certain meme. I'll be editing my other posts to correspond to this one :) Thanks for your understand and I hope you keep checking out my book hauls!

Last but not least:
Last weekend I went to the LA Times Festival of Books! I have been going for the past 2 years and each year I've always had a blast despite traffic, crowds and the heat. It's always worth it all when I get to meet my favorite authors! So last weekend I went and I got to meet and get my books signed by Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lauren Kate, Stephanie Perkins, Robin LaFevers, Kendare Blake, Josephine Angelini, and Maggie Stiefvater! Every one of those authors rocked! There was more that I wished I could have met, but it's ok. I can go next year again. Also, I wish I took more pictures, but my iPhone camera lacks quality and a decent zooming mechanism. LOL. 

*Me with Maggie Stiefvater plus my signed copy of The Scorpio Races :)

Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate (signed and personalized)
*I got to meet and get all my Fallen series books signed by Lauren Kate herself. She's super nice!

Swag I got from the signings during the festival!
Beautfiul Chaos Bookmark
Beautiful Chaos Rubber Bracelet
Anna Dressed in Blood Bookmark (signed)
Dreamless Bookmark/Bookplate
Anna/Lola promo post card from Stephanie Perkins
Team Adam (from If I Stay & Where She Went) pin
