Yesterday was a very exciting day for me, I got to meet one of my favourite authors of all time.
I just love this photo.
My day started at 5am in the morning...yes 5am. Since the only closest place Cassandra Clare was signing to me was Birmingham I had to wake up early to get the coach from Liverpool to Birmingham with my friend Ren and we got there about 10pm. We where worried at first as our coach back was at 7pm and the signing was at 5pm so that only gave us an hour and a half so we wanted to make sure we where near the front of the queue.
Queuing wasn't 'allowed' till 3pm, but people where waiting around in front of the Waterstones so we decided to just relax outside as we didn't want to go away and come back to a big queue!
So whilst we where waiting we made a few friends (who are very awesome people) and just fangirled over Cassie's books and also Malec! Plus we get Runed!
So after a good 7 hours it was finally time to meet the wonderful Cassandra Clare! The queue went fast as I heard there was about 800 people queuing to meet her so I can see why they kind of had us going really fast. Plus it was only 1 book she was signing as the other books we bought got stamped (with a pretty awesome stamp if I do say so myself)
And when it came to my time I was nervous, I'm literally the worst when it comes to talking to people I've adored for years so I was just so shy and thought I wasn't going to get anything out and smile like a crazy person.
But we talked for a few seconds and do you know what we talked about? Star Wars. Because I was wearing my Star Wars top she asked me who my favourite character was, so now I can say I've had a conversation about Star Wars with Cassandra Clare.
Coolest moment ever.
It was so worth getting up at 5am and queuing for over 7 hours to meet the author whose series really got me back into reading and remembering what I loved so much about reading. Plus - not only did I get to meet Cassandra Clare but I made some pretty good friends which is what I love about book signings! Finding people who have the same interest as you and it's just wonderful!
So if you haven't read any of Cassandra Clare books then you defiantly need to go and order them as they are perfect! And if you haven't read Lady Midnight yet, do it! IT IS FANTASTIC!
Thank you to Waterstones Birmingham for hosting a great book event :)
