Life Happens is a weekly feature here at Books and Burlap. It will feature highlights from the previous week, as well bookish topics.
Where do I even begin to discuss this past week? Well, the actually week was rather dull. Monday and Tuesday were teacher work days, so there were no students in the building (which was rather nice, but boring). Wednesday was back to normal. However, I was not at work on Thursday and Friday. Why?
Because I was at YALLFest in Charleston, SC!
My mom and I left for Charleston early Thursday morning (which also happened to be my dad’s birthday, though we celebrated the night before). I’m not a fan of flying, but I was so excited to go to my first YALLFest, that I didn’t really care.
I met so many of my favorite YA authors: James Dashner (The Maze Runner), Gayle Forman (If I Stay), Kiera Cass (The Selection), Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park, Fangirl), Sarah Dessen (too many to name), Ellen Hopkins (again, too many to name), and….Veronica Roth (Divergent)!
It was such an amazing trip, I’m really sad that it’s over. But I’m so glad that I was finally able to go, especially since I’ve been wanting to go for over a year. Oh, and I didn’t just meet the authors…they signed my books as well! Guess I have to go back to regular, every day life now, eh?
