Across the Universe Launch Party

As we come to the end of Across the Universe Week, I got the amazing privilege to go to the release party for Beth Revis! First I want to thank Beth for sending me an invitation to come and for letting us rain on your parade and second, I want to thank Tiffani for being awesome and driving us up!

I had so much fun going and meeting Beth! There was food, lots of people, and of course Beth in all her glory. We drove up and got there around 4:30 and it didn't start until 5 so we just chilled, talked with Beth, and ate some cupcakes and snacks.





When it came time to start, one of the store owners introduced Beth before she did a reading from Chapter One (the nudie scene, if you've read it lol) and then took questions, which started out dead before others chimed in with their own questions. After that it was time to get in line for the signing and guess who else was in line in front of me?! Stephanie Perkins! Author of Anna and the French Kiss! And she was awesome! I kinda knew she would already be there so I had brought my copy of ANNA because she promised to sign it for me :)


After getting ANNA signed and taking a few pics with her, it was time to get our books signed. We had 3 copies to get signed and she was totally excited to sign them! She was also kind enough to take a pic with us (below).

After going through the line, it was time to hang out until everyone had gone through the line so she could draw the winner for her amazing gift basket! We walked around looking at books and then talked to Steph Perkins and her husband for like 45 minutes! We got to talk about books (found out she and John Green have the same editor), tv shows (well, her husband and I talked about this one), and more! It was tons of fun and Steph is so nice!


At the end of the night, Beth pulled the winner of the basket, and guess what?! I lost. And so did Jeffrey. Some other guys won...sadly. I totes wanted it! But anyways, about 7 it was time to leave. We said our goodbyes to Beth and Steph before heading back on the road. Overall it was an amazing night and I had a great time meeting everyone there and getting more word out about my blog! :)

If you guys ever get the chance to go to an event with either Beth or Stephanie, do it! It's totally worth it and you'd miss tons of fun if you miss them! I know I had a great time with them!
