Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

Serendipitous Timing!

So, remember my incoherent ramble last night about how "The Hunger Games" is probably the best thing since sliced bread?

The author is going to be in New York tomorrow. And I don't have to work (and honestly, if I did, I would probably be coming down with some sort of mystery flu right now).

So I'm going to see Suzanne Collins, along with Justine Larbalestier (who wrote "How to Ditch Your Fairy" which I read a few weeks ago and also enjoyed. She's also married to Scott Westerfeld, who wrote the "Uglies" books that I wrote my final college paper on) and Robin Wasserman (who wrote "Skinned," another awesome post-apocalyptic YA novel I recently read and loved) and 7 other YA SF/Fantasy authors that I don't know (yet!) at Books of Wonder in NYC.

You have no idea how stoked I am right now. NO IDEA.

Oh, I'm also going to be finishing the day by hanging out with bridesmaid Rachel, helping her find a bra to go under her bridesmaid dress and then subjecting the poor woman to shoe shopping for the afore-mentioned dress. She really hates shoe shopping, the poor thing. But I also think me taking her shopping was originally her idea? I don't know. Either way, I get awesome YA books, my twin, shopping, and A SATURDAY OFF FROM WORK (the first of what will be two in a row!) all in one day!

Seriously. Stoked.
