Breathless Reads in Salt Lake City

Last Saturday a bunch of my friends and I were at the Salt Lake City Library eagerly awaiting a handful of fabulous authors!

Rachel, Jamie, Jenni, Debbie, Malea, Olivia, Meagan, Heather
(and directly above us-even if they didnt know we were taking a picture, is a few more friends/authors: Sheralyn Pratt, Nichole Giles, Windy Aphayrath, Elana Johnson)
(And a special shout out to Catie (Book Bound for taking the picture!)

Then the wonderful Breathless Reads Tour Authors came out on stage!
Pictured Above:
Ally Condie (Matched), Beth Revis (Across The Universe), Andrea Cremer (Nightshade), Kirsten Miller (The Eternal Ones), Breanna Yavonoff (The Replacement)

And of course some other friends / awesome book bloggers
Emily from Emily's Reading Room, Cranberryfries, Heather from Fire and Ice
(thanks for the photo Heather!)

Here's a fun little video of a few of them answering the question, "Do you have any rituals or things you always do when you write?"

(If you can't see the video you can go directly to my YouTube page here to see it.)

I've read Matched, and loved it! And I picked up Across the Universe and Nightshade to read. I really wish (and seriously just should have) gotten them all!

Have you read any of these books yet?
What'd you think?

I've read Nightshade, Matched & The Replacement. I really liked all 3 of them. I ended up getting a copy of everything just because the authors are awesome. :)

I was there and loved loVED LOVED it! In the top photo, you can see where I was sitting, but I hadn't arrived yet, or had left. I loved listening to and meeting the cool authors.
I am like Kirsten. I have to have it quiet when I write. Sometimes I can get away with watching some TV but really only when I'm editing. I like to have chocolate close at hand.

I bought The Replacement at the event. Nightshade is in the mail as I write. Can't wait to read em. Already devoured Matched and Across the Universe.

Wish we could have met up there. Check out my blog for my post about the Breathless Reads Tour:

It was a blast! I seriously upped how much I liked some of the books just by how great all the authors were. Really, I had SO MUCH FUN!

I enjoyed the panel so much. I had read Matched and The Eternal Ones, and I'm reading The Replacement right now for my book club.
