Jamie - Oooh I didn’t know Ellen Hopkins was writing an adult novel! Checking out all of these picks though I think I have the Lisa Genova one on my list! I can’t remember anymore what I do!

Lisa the Nerd - Did you know I was JUST LOOKING for adult books to read?

I am so very happy right now.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - These posts always get me in trouble, because I end up adding EVEN MORE books to my books to read list… But I love it! I think, out of all the ones you picked, The Confidant sounds like the one I’d enjoy best ;)I mean, it’s PARIS and LETTERS and TRAGEDY.

Tara - I always LOVE your lists 🙂 This one has me going into a mild panic attack though because I have so many of them and I haven’t read most yet! AGHHH!!!

September 8, 2012 - 3:30 pm

Kristen Evey - WoW! SO many good books coming out this month and next. Eeek! Must finish reading the pile I already have! Most of these sound like ones I will read eventually, but I think I’m most excited about Drama & Origin right now. I’ve heard good things about both. 🙂 Thanks for the list!

September 8, 2012 - 11:07 am

Lisa - What’s Left of Me! Probably the one I’m looking forward to most. Okay fine, that and The Diviners. But honestly you probably already knew that.

Thanks for putting this list together!

Estelle - Hi Pat! There’s a huge signing at the end of the weekend and you can go to that and get your books signed. I’m sure at the smaller events authors would oblige but some of these events are held at libraries so unless you already have the book… there’s no purchasing being done. Hope that helps!

Pat - Hi! Were you able to get autographs from your favorite authors?

June 18, 2012 - 12:03 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I’m very jealous that you got to go! It sounds like it was an amazing event. Hopefully I get to go (along with you, of course) next year!

elena - eeep I would love to read those 150 pages Morgan Matson cut out, especially if it meant more Amy and Roger scenes. I didn’t know David Levithan edited The Hunger Games, what a cool fact! These events sound like so much fun, thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to read your next part!

April 12, 2012 - 4:26 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I LOVE any panels where David Levithan is present! So I would have been too busy hanging on his every word to take notes, haha. I always intended to take notes at this things and always forget, so good job, Estelle! 😀

Ghenet Myrthil - Great recap! My TBR list is exploding with all the books I want to read, after attending this festival. 🙂

April 12, 2012 - 3:29 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - Ok I seriously want to read those 150 pages that Morgan Matson cut out of Amy & Roger! Gah! and there’s no way that trip could ever be too long.

Sounds like you had an amazing time Estelle! Wish I could have been there, too.
