Fangirl-ing over Rainbow Rowell

Yesterday, I went to a talk, Q and A and signing with Rainbow Rowell at Waterstones Piccadilly in London. It was the first author event I’ve been to actually and I had a great time. I went with my writer and bookseller bestie George Lester, you can follow his blog HERE. This is us in the queue, we are a tad excited:

Rainbow was really engaging talking about her books, her writing process and things she loves like Sherlock (good taste!) and I love how she connects with her readers. If you haven’t read one of her books, you really should 🙂 Eleanor and Park is my favourite and is a lovely teen romance that isn’t afraid to deal with all kinds of issues.

What I like about her is all her books are so different, she writes for teens and adults and it’s hard to define her work, which makes it more unique and fun I think. You never know what she’ll bring out next.

After the talk and questions, we lined up to have our books signed and I had three of her books with me. They were also giving out pretty amazing tote bags, just look!!


Here are my signed books:




And meeting the lovely lady herself (my smile is very cheesy!):



What authors have you met?

  1. I remember feeling really excited to meet one of my childhood favorites a few years back, Lois Duncan. She wrote a lot of scary YA fiction like I Know What You Did Last Summer. I was a little disappointed to find out that she was kind of a kook…she really believed in all of the paranormal things that she wrote about in her books!

    1. Oh haha, I haven’t read any of hers but have seen that film, thats quite strange that she thinks that but actually I feel like all us writers have to be weird to try this lol 🙂

  2. Oh you’re so very lucky! I’ve read two of Rainbow’s books and I love her! Unfortunately I’ve never met any authors, as very few venture to my side of the world. 😦
