Decatur Book Festival Highlight: Stephanie Perkins

The Nestie Besties (minus two ::cries::) will also be at DBF this year and I think we are all basically thrilled beyond words that Stephanie Perkins will also be there.  I first heard about Anna and the French Kiss from the Nesties, and it was a Nestie who sent me my copy.  I shudder to imagine how long I would have waited to read it had Tameka not sent it to me.  You can check out my review of the book in this post, but, to summarize: I loved it.  So cute and such a fun read.  I'm dying to hear the author speak and get my book signed.

Anna and the French Kiss is Stephanie Perkins' debut title, and her second book, Lola and the Boy Next Door, will (sadly) not be published before DBF.  I'm holding out hope for an ARC though, I've heard rumors that there are some floating around (hint hint)!  Either way, I'll be at her panel or reading with bells on and on September 29th I'll be picking up my copy of the newest book.  If you like YA or fun romances, you'll love Anna!


  1. I almost cried when I realized LOLA wouldn't be out until AFTER the festival.

    Dear Dutton, please push up the release date!

  2. I still REALLY hope I get to go, but it's not looking promising. It may be a VERY last minute thing. :(
