What I Picked Up At ALA And Why, Part 2
Babymouse: Rock Star by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm (and click over to the cover photo, because a punked out Babymouse is AWESOME. I may have to buy Queen Lucy her first pair of Doc Martens. )
The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga, because I gave my BEA copy to a kid at my mom's school; they loved it, but didn't return it.
Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late by Mo Willems, signed, for Queen Lucy.
Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce, which I wanted because his Millions rocked.
Candy Darlings by Christine Walde because I liked the cover. I do judge books by the cover.
Incantation by Alice Hoffman, because it is by Alice Hoffman. (Yep, once I find an author I trust to tell a good story, I go to them again and again, not even bothering to find out the plot.)
Goy Crazy by Melissa Schorr because it sounds so politically incorrect.
Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr, because I've been reading her blog for over a year so cannot wait to read this! So yes, blogging as an author can help you.
and drumroll please for:
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. Words fail. Neil Gaiman, people!!! Signed my book which meant I was there and saw him and spoke with him!!!
Life, it is good.
