Miami Book Fair International 2014 Recap!

Last weekend, the Owls hit the Miami Book Fair International and got to meet some pretty amazing authors.  Some we had already met at previous book events and some for the very first time, which is always exciting.  We love discovering new authors!

My favorite and most embarrassing moment at a book event EVER, was when I met my idol, Ann Martin.  You might know her as the author of the Babysitter's Club books.  I remember vividly, making my mom take me to Walmart just so I could buy whatever new Babysitter's Club book was out that I didn't have.  You have no idea how much I regret giving my whole series collection away.  I know they went to someone who would appreciate them, but I could have still had them and gotten each and everyone of them signed.  Yes, I would have made that line 30 times if I had to just to get all of them signed.  I wouldn't want to hog up the line for other fans.  So I got there early, thinking that the line was going to be super long.  Luckily for me, I was only the 3rd person there.  Once she came outside to start signing, I don't know what came over me.  Seriously, I am a fangirl, but never to the point to where I cry and have absolutely no control over it.  And that is exactly what happened.  I started to cry like a damn baby! LOL

This is poor Ann Martin looking at me like I am crazy. LOL  Once she saw me crying, she asked me if I was a fan of the Babysitter's Club books, to which I responded with a high pitch "yes!"


I kept telling that photographer to stop taking pictures of me crying. LOL

I look like a fool here, but I don't care.  This picture will be printed and framed!  This woman made my childhood so much better by starting my love for reading.  I will be forever grateful! 

Melissa is the sweetest lady ever!  How she comes up with such crazy and twisted character, I have no idea. LOL  

Jennifer is a bottle of sunshine!  She has a smile that can light up the whole room.  I can't wait to reading The Naturals!

Okay, Maggie is just the best!  She is hilarious and a badass!  LOVE HER!

This is my 4th time meeting Kami and every time I see her, she is super funny and sweet.

WE GOT TO MEET ROBIN LAFEVERS!!!  She barely goes to any book event so that fact that she came to Miami, totally made my day! She is incredibly bright and super sweet!  Thank you, Robin for coming down to see us!

This young lady right here is an inspriation!  If you haven't read her book yet, I strongly suggest you do!

So Lesyle is a doll!  Super funny and incredibly sweet!  I really need to read her book, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender.

Yay!  I got to see Rachel again!!  I told her I would forgive her and that I still love her even though she took 2 years to release Emergent, book #2 in the Beta series!


  1. Oh wow, this sounds like an awesome book fair where you got to meet a lot of well known authors! And don't worry about the crying at all. I have never met my favourite authors before, but if I did I think a tear or two might be shed as well :)
