Breathless Reads book tour

I recently discovered another independent (and large) bookstore right here in my college town, who regularly host events. I randomly checked their website on Friday and discovered that they were hosting a tour stop for the Breathless Reads tour. So I went along on Monday and got to hear from 5 great YA authros: Beth Revis, Fiona Paul, Morgan Rhodes, Elizabeth Richards and Jess Spotswood.

I had seen some of their book covers before, but didn't connect them to the names. It was a great panel with some fun Q & A, which gave a flavour for each book. All the authors were lovely, too, and it was fun to see their personalities coming through as they talked about their books and answered the questions. I didn't know much about some of the books, so it was great to hear about them - I have some exciting new things on my 'to be read' list now!

Fiona Paul (Venom) and Jess Spotswood (Born Wicked)

 Beth Revis (Across the Universe; etc)

Elizabeth Richards (Black City) and Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms)

I had heard of Black City, but I don't think I've read any reviews for it. Having heard Elizabeth talk about it some more, I definitely want to check it out. The other one that I really loved the sound of was 'Falling Kingdoms' by Morgan Rhodes, which sounds great!

It was a fun evening, and nice to hear about some great books from the authors themselves, as well as being able to ask them some other questions. If anyone has read these books, I'd love to hear from you!
