BookCon 2018 Day 2 Wrap-Up

Day 2:

BookCon Day 2 was a lot less packed than Day 1 (thank goodness!). My friends and I cosplayed as the Star Wars leading ladies. A lot of awesome bookstagramers came to say hello while waiting in line to get in and it was amazing meeting some of them in person. As soon as my friends and I walked onto the show floor, we also ran into V. E. Schwab and took a picture of her. I ended up wandering around in the morning and snagging some free stuff including some cool totes and a 20th anniversary Harry Potter pin.

While wandering, I managed to stumble on a Melissa Albert signing. The Hazel Wood is a book that I’ve been hearing so much about, so I was excited to get a signed copy!

My first official signing of the day was Laini Taylor and she was absolutely amazing. Strange the Dreamer was one of my top books of 2017 and I highly recommend it to anyone who hans’t read it yet! I still have not finished her other series, The Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but the first one was absolutely enchanting!

Kiersten White was my next signing . I’ve been a huge fan since middle school with the Paranormalcy series. I’ve been meaning to read And I Darken for a long time and haven’t gotten around to it. She was so lovely and I was so blessed to finally meet her. Although I wasn’t able to go to Marie Lu’s signing because it was at the same time, my friend was able to get Warcross signed for me, which was another one of my favorite books of 2017!

After finishing up, I once again wandered around and got lucky enough to run into Victoria Schwab signing ARCs of her new book coming out in August, City of Ghosts! I was also able to picked up a signed copy of The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi which is one of the books I’ve been meaning to add to my collection. It was especially awesome because there was not even at BookCon, so I wasn’t expecting there to be signed stock! There was also a great sale on books for the end of the last day, which is where I picked up The Bone Witch.

After two days of lugging books around and shuffling around the show floor, I was ready to face plant. In fact, on the way home I tried to get off the bus at a red light because I was so exhausted I thought it was my stop! (Yes, I will be forever embarrassed by this moment and it is burned into my memory.)
