So fellow guest blogger Loreal and I went over to Books of Wonder on Tuesday for the reading and signing with Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, and Lauren DeStefano. To be honest, we really just went to get signed Withers. I have not yet read the Mortal Instruments series past the first one and I have never read a Holly Black book.
There were a lot of people. Of course, it doesn’t compare to the time that Suzanne Collins was there for the Mockingjay release party, but I was shocked on how packed the bookstore got. I didn’t expect it to be so crowded, especially since it was a Tuesday night! I guess I underestimated the popularity of the Mortal Instruments and the Curseworkers series.
Here’s a video from the reading:
After the reading, I have to admit that I’m curious to see what the fuss is all about since everyone was just fangirling over Cassandra Clare. And Holly Black? Man, she writes good smut. I have a fine appreciation for that.
I did only walk out with a signed Wither, which I am very proud of. I resisted the temptation of buying books that were not on my wishlist.
On a side note, after the purchase of Wither, I am now on a book buying ban until further notice.
