Meeting Tonya & Lydia!

Hi guys!! I’m in the best mood; I met Tonya Kuper (author of Anomaly) and Lydia Kang (author of Control + Catalyst)!! 😍

It was absolutely magical. I know that sounds cheesy, but it really was. I arrived about ten minutes early, and the 12-1 authors were just finishing up and starting to pack. I browsed the YA section, which was small but so cute and cozy, and bought a copy of Control. I fiddled on my phone for a few minutes after that, until they came in. I waited until they were settled at their table and let another boy get his books signed before I went over. I said hi to Lydia and she signed and personalized Control, then Tonya saw me, AND SHE KNEW WHO I WAS. 😍

She personalized Anomaly because it was already signed, and we were both really excited. I can’t believe she was so excited to me! It put the biggest smile on my face. I got a bookmark for each book as well as three pins and a temporary tattoo related to Anomaly. πŸ˜€

Then for the next hour the three of us just talked and laughed and had a great time. When 2 o’clock came, they left their table and we browsed the MG and YA sections of the store before leaving. I got a bunch of hugs from both of them. πŸ˜€

So, to sum it up, this afternoon was fabulous. I have to say I enjoyed this event more than Rainbow’s because while hers was fun, I got to see her for about five minutes. She signed my books, asked how I was, and took a picture with me, but then it was the next person’s turn. I’m fine with that, but this event was more personal in many ways. πŸ˜‰

I enjoyed today so much, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to attend more events like this soon!! πŸ˜€

Note- pics will be on my Instagram. πŸ™‚

Until next time– Olivia πŸ’– (myΒ TwitterΒ | myΒ Instagram)

  1. I’m glad you had such a great time πŸ™‚ I’ve never met an author before bc they don’t really come to Portugal. I almost met Cassandra Clare once but she had to cancel. I hope I’ll get to meet some when I go to London πŸ˜€ xx
