Decatur Book Festival Freak Out

So the author list for the Decatur Book Festival just released and I couldn't hold back my excitement. THIS YEAR IS GOING TO ROCK!

If you don't know what DBF is, it's the largest independent book festival in the NATION! Pretty crazy, right? And it's only an hours drive from my house. I had never even heard of it until last year (which obviously means it wasn't THAT big yet :P ). Last year's was amazing! We made a post about it here and I can't WAIT to go back!

I'm not going to share the entire list with you here. But I'll leave the source at the bottom for you to check out if you want. This post is purely selfish. I just wanted to share the list of authors I'm most excited to meet/see again.

Libba Bray (Beauty Queens)
Simone Elkeles (Chain Reaction)
Rachel Hawkins (Demonglass)
Jonathan Maberry (Dust & Decay)
Myra McEntire (Hourglass)
Lisa McMann (The Unwanteds)
Jackson Pearce (Sweetly)
Stephanie Perkins (Lola and the Boy Next Door)
Beth Revis (Across the Universe)
Victoria Schwab (The Near Witch)

And there you have it. It might not look as impressive as last year's line-up, but I'm sure it will be just as AWESOME! Plus Dragon Con is that weekend, so I might sneak on over to Atlanta every so often for that :)

Here's the original list in case you're interested.



  1. Awesome! Thanks for posting the news, I've been checking the DBF site for an update for months, just haven't lately ;). I'd love to see Libba Bray! I'm probably going to DragonCon, too. I kinda wish it wasn't the same weekend, fun things always happen the same weekend, lol.

  2. If I remember right, last year they kept adding names to the maybe by September it will be more impressive!
