I went to Supanova for the first time yesterday, and guess what?!
I MET ANNE BISHOP. NO BIG DEAL. JUST ANOTHER ORDINARY DAY IN THE LIFE OF MOI.
Ermergerd. I got my copy of Marked In Flesh signed and asked her what inspired her to start the series. She said she started to think about what kind of world it’d be if animals turned into humans and not the other way around, and it evolved from there. I told her that I only just recently discovered her work and am obsessed. With a smile, she said I’ll be happy to know that she brought in the last book in the series, Etched In Bone, earlier this year in March so it should be coming soon! AHHHHH. I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Tamora Pierce was also there but guysssss, the line was so long and I had to get home. 😦 I was honestly so bummed out because TAMORA PIERCE!!!! but it couldn’t be helped. I felt a little better when I got home. I’m hoping I’ll get another opportunity to meet her and tell her how much the Lioness Quartet changed my life.
The other authors in attendance were:

I haven’t read any of these author’s books, save for Ian Irvine’s Vengeance which I never got around to finishing, so I didn’t visit them.
Kudos to my little brother, the real MVP, who came along with me. My friends were busy so we went together. He’s the reason why I actually have pictures to post and look at because I’m not a photo-taking person in general, lol. And he was very patient waiting in the lines with me, even if, in Tamora’s case, we waited an hour only to leave without seeing her. He also didn’t get anything even though I insisted (big sister always pays. Aren’t I just the best? 😝) but he’s more into gaming than books/movies/tv shows. I just really appreciated his company yesterday. Gonna make it up to him by taking him to the EB Games Expo in September. We’re gonna fun so much fun! Overwatch goodies, anyone?
Anyway, here are the three things I bought from Supanova:
It’s a rainy, gloomy winter day here in Sydney, so I’m gonna head off and hide in my bed!
