Decatur Book Festival Wrap Up: The Goods

While it is true that the main draw for me at DBF this year was seeing my Nestie Besties, it didn't hurt that some amazing authors were there signing books.  I've been having terrible migraines, so I wasn't able to go all out this year, but I did pick up some wonderful books and got to listen to several great talks.

Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Sweetly by Jackson Pearce

Skippyjon Jones by Judy Shachner (a gift for Georgie)

Shine by Lauren Myracle (I actually missed her talk because of a migraine but I picked up a signed copy at The Little Shop of Stories)

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Libba Bray's story in Zombies vs. Unicorns (see how the zombie at the top is saying "Brains!" om-nom-nom)

Libba Bray's story in Geektastic

And a signed copy of Beauty Queens

Also got this amazing stationery from my Nestie Bestie Crystal.  I think I may have mentioned on here before that I am not only a lover of rainbows, puppies, and unicorns, but that I also have a special love for Lisa Frank's rainbows, puppies, and unicorns.  So Crystal picked up this amazing stationery set that comes with stickers that I'll be using on everything from now on. 

Also, Jacki made us these amazing cookes (pictured here on Tameka's laptop - I stole them from her Facebook because I ate mine before I could get pictures)  It's Harry Potter!  She MADE them.  I'm so impressed.  And, to add to what is, frankly, my complete and total admiration, Jacki is gorgeous (it's ok if you want to get a restraining order or something, I understand).  But seriously.  The woman is beautiful.  And she makes Harry Potter cookies.

Ron - how precious?

And Hermione.


  1. I had Libba sign my Geektastic and ZvsU also. :-) I have a few other authors who have signed them too. It will be such a cool collection when it's done!

  2. You got some great books but I especially love the stationary and cookies!

  3. That stationary RULES!!!

    I love that my hot pink laptop is famous!

  4. That's awesome. Those cookies are way adorable!
