I went to a bookfair yesterday and I can’t even tell you how awesome it was. I finally got the chance to meet some amazing authors including one of my favorite authors ever: Derek Landy himself.
Derek Landy is like the funniest guy ever. Have you ever been to one of his readings? He is just so awesome. Like really, if you ever have the chance to go to one of his readings, you absolutely should. I love his books so much and now that I had the chance to talk to him for a little while (I ask him to not kill Milo in Demon Road haha) I like him even better. I was laughing so hard I almost cried listening to him talk. He’s amazing.
When I gave him my book to sign it he first spelled my name wrong and this is what happened:
Derek: „Wait, did I spell your name right?“
Me: „Well no but it’s okay.“
Derek: „Aww damn okay wait I just …“
And then he scribbled a little demon/devil on the page and signed it. We had a little chat about the characters from his books and how much I love them. It was great but unfortunately we didn’t have too much time to talk since there were like a million people who wanted to get their books signed.
I also got the chance to meet the wonderful and sweet Kiera Cass. I loved the Selection series and I so can’t wait for the next book to come out. I’m so excited and I’m so happy that I was able to meet her. She is such a nice person and so so pretty, don’t you think?
And last but not least I got to meet Kerstin Gier, a very famous German author. Some of you might know her. She is the one who wrote the Ruby Red Series. She was also very nice and sweet. Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take a photo with her since there were so many people who wanted to get their books signed it was crazy. But my boyfriend managed to take a picture of me and her while she was signing my book and handing it back over to me.
I can’t believe I’ve met all these wonderful and amazing people. I am so so happy and I sure will continue with some of their books soon, especially with the Skulduggery Pleasant series.
