ALA Swag

I had a really great time at the American Library Association Conference, which is still taking place in Washington, D.C. thru Tuesday. I met a lot of nice people and got to ogle some amazing authors, e.g. John Green. He waved at me, and I just about died.

Someone dared me to eat a larvae, and that was intriguing. Salty.

I wasn’t able to get an ARC of DELIRIUM – it was the one I wanted most – they were all gone by the time I got there!

I’m most excited about MATCHED and TORMENT.  I hadn’t heard of HALO, but the cover is gorgeous.

My favorite part was getting to talk to Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl about their books Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness. I had been wondering how in the world they’re able to write books together, and they explained that they’ll do an outline together, then Kami will write the first few chapters and will send them to Margaret, who deletes what she wants (without telling Kami) and adds as needed. Crazy, huh?

Here are the books I managed to grab:
