I've been riding my #NTBF19 reads for so long, it took seeing these books in my Kindle to #remindme that I have book club reads to finish!

Also, if you didn't catch it from @EclecticReaders, @Merethebookgal and I got to interview 8 different YA authors, so those will be coming to a podcatcher near you shortly! They were all so amazingly warm and insightful and funny! So excited to share those. #NTBF19 #EclecticReaders

A #SundayShelfie of my #NTBF19 #bookhaul! I had bought the tagged book previously, but brought it for signing purposes. The others I couldn't resist, and only the greatest of willpower and @Merethebookgal's close supervision prevented me from buying A Blade So Black as well. The one on the end is a graphic novel #ARC I won, so I'll keep you up to date!

For a Muse of Fire | Heidi Heilig
post image

I had to behave on buying books (I‘d have bought SO many, if I‘d had the option), so I settled on taking my copies of The Ship Beyond Time & For a Muse of Fire to get signed by Heidi Heilig. I was stunned when Heidi recognized me from our past exchanges on Twitter, and she had much love for my hat (this it‘s inclusion in this pic). My lone purchase of the day was Katherine Locke‘s girl with the Red Balloon. #BookHaul #LooseUseOfTheHashtag #NTBF19

CrowCAH OMG isn‘t that great when an author remembers you?! I ❤️ The Girl From Everywhere ⚓️⚔️☠️!!! Did you read the Red Balloon when it was a Big Library Read selection? April 1-15 is the next BLR text. 3mo
BillBlume @CrowCAH I‘ve only just started reading Girl with the Red Balloon. Sadly, my reading time these days is dreadful. I need more time! And honestly, I was dumbstruck that Heidi recognized me. I had no expectation of that and hope she‘ll come back to Virginia when her next book comes out. (edited) 3mo

Cohosts Jeannette and Meredith attended the NOVA Teen Book Festival yesterday and recorded four author interview episodes (with a total of eight authors) and we can‘t wait to share them with you in the near future! #EclecticReaders #podcast #authorinterview #NTBF19

BillBlume I am pumped to hear these. 3mo
EclecticReaders @BillBlume Yay! (And we apologize in advance if these episodes end up adding to your TBR 😂) 3mo

The Diviners | Libba Bray
post image

Perhaps the biggest revelation for me was getting to hear from Libba Bray. I‘m embarrassed to admit she wasn‘t even on my radar, and now I‘m wondering how I‘ve been so oblivious. She closed out the event with a keynote that was brilliant, funny, and inspiring. I‘d randomly attended two of the panels with her, and she cracked me up the entire time. She is officially going on my TBR list. #NoVaTeenBF #NTBF19

RvnclawWhovian I‘m reading her Gemma Doyle trilogy, just finished book one 3mo
Kimberlone I was really into this series when I was in high school 3mo
LibrarianRyan She‘s amazing. I liked the Diviners more than great and terrible beauty, but Beauty Queens is like reality tv in book form. Lots of fun and pretty brainless. 3mo

For a Muse of Fire | Heidi Heilig

One of the big highlights of NoVaTeen this year was finally getting to meet Heidi Heilig in person. She was on the panel for writing in a series. I loved her novel The Girl from Everywhere, and I can‘t wait to read her latest For a Muse of Fire. I was so dumbstruck that I forgot to get a picture when she signed my books. I just happened to find this picture of me in Heidi‘s line from another author‘s Instagram story. #NoVaTeenBF #NTBF19

One of the funniest moments at today‘s NoVaTeen Book Festival came in the panel on magic. Libba Bray got up close with moderator Lisa Maxwell. The panel included Cinda Williams Chima, Dhonielle Clayton, and Katherine Locke. They all had so much fun, and it was a blast to watch. #NoVaTeenBF #NTBF19

I‘m excited for the 3 books I picked up at the book festival today! (I already owned The Everlasting Rose but brought it to get signed.) #bookhaul #NTBF19

Girl with the Red Balloon | Katherine Locke

The Journey to the Past Panel was so interesting!
“I like to set my books in a time period that‘s at a precipice of change” Katherine Locke
“The line blurs between research and procrastination” Robin Talley
“History is like a Hydra” and “The irradiated water worked fine until his jaw fell off” 🤣 Libba Bray #NTBF19
