YA Breathless Tour 2012 - Dallas GIVEAWAY

The Breathless Reads Tour 2012 showcased Beth Revis (Across The Universe & A Million Suns), Marie Lu (Legend), Andrea Cremer (Nightshade, Wolfsbane, Bloodrose), and Jessica Spotswood (Born Wicked).  They made a stop in Dallas, Texas and it was amazing! Penguin Teen and FreshFiction, who were the hosts at Barnes and Noble Stonebriar, out did themselves with how beautiful the set up was. 

We came in and found these cute little cafe menus that honored each of the authors.
Then we were given these awesome tour event passes.

Gwen Reyes was the moderator and she was bringing the heat with all the great questions. The authors were all so different, but got along very well. Sometimes when you go to signings/discussions they can be really interesting and other times they can drag on, but this one was definitely the kind that I was sad when it was over. I loved all the questions! I thought I would share a few Q & As with you and some more photos. 

Q: Which character are you most like?
Beth Revis (BR) - More like Elder
Andrea Cremer (AC) - Ansel
Marie Lu (ML) - Tess
Jessica Spotswood (JS) - Kate

Q: What is your favorite kill in your books?
BR: Shelby's death was my favorite kill. (Great story about how she names her characters too, you should ask her!)
AC: Kyle, brother of Ethan
ML: I get really sad about deaths, but if I had to pick one then Matthias.

From Left To Right: Jessica Spotswood, Marie Lu, Andrea Cremer, and Beth Revis

After they talked we all got in line to have our books signed. Beth Revis signed mine extra special. Check it out:

The gifts did not stop there. They have away these great posters, which I got signed by all the authors. I do not have a cool pic of the signed one. I am going to give it away to one lucky follower and a $10 gift card (Amazon, B&N, or Book Depository)to make up for not having a pic though.

    Which book by the four mentioned authors is your favorite? - That is a terribly hard question but I guess I'd have to say my favorite is Legend because I know how long and hard Marie has worked on building up that story to where it is now.

    I also have to say I love giveaways :)

  8. I haven't read Across the Universe or Legend yet, but I really loved Born Wicked :]
    Thanks for the giveaway!
