Marissa Meyer Toronto Signing!

I was so happy that I was able to get out to Yorkdale for Marissa Meyer's book signing!
Not only was I happy to be there, I was happy that I had my oldest daughter with me too!
It was really nice to share this experience with her 
and I hope we can go to more
signings together in the future!

Anyway, here are some pics I took from the signing!

We were lucky enough to actually get seats for the Q&A!
Granted it was the last row... but we still got a seat!

set up for Marissa's arrival!

The next few pics are of Marissa talking about how she started writing,
how old she was when she started, and about how she came up with The Lunar Chronicles series.
As well as her love for Sailor Moon!
She officially rocks!!!

At one point, she started talking about fairy tale origins dating back to the 14th century...
and WOW are they ever gory!!! 
Brooke sat beside me with her hands covering her ears the whole time!

  1. It was so lovely to meet you on Saturday!! :) And aww.. you got a pic of me getting my book signed too! :P Glad you and Brooke had a great time (even if she might've come out a little traumatized.. lol) Great pic of the two of you with Marissa!

    Definitely hope to see you at more book signings! It's always such a fun time, and you get to know a lot of the familiar faces :)

  2. Great recap! I was kind of wondering if the kids in the crowd/ store would be traumatized! ;)

    Oh, and Michele- what a sweatheart!

  3. Sorry I didn't get to meet you there! (Although I am in some of your pics, haha... in front of Marissa with the blonde-ish hair and blue shirt)
