YALLWest 2016 Wrap Up

 

I love YALLWest. It’s an amazing festival, or as a friend described it, “basically ComicCon or BEA- but without the torturously long lines.” I’ve gone both years, and absolutely loved it. I’ve met so many new people, got so many awesome (free!) books, and saw some fantastic panels. Here’s just some of the fun I had this year.

Taking a selfie with Jennifer Niven (All the Bright Places) and Isabela of Isabela Reads and lounging on a swan with friends.
Book Nerd Yoga with Epic Reads! It was so fun, and I got to meet some great authors, like Kimberly McCreight, author of The Outliers
Loved running in to Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die series), Renée Ahdieh (The Wrath and the Dawn series) and Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me trilogy, Furthermore)

Overall, I’d say YALLWest 2016 was a huge success. I met so many great authors and had such a fun time in the California sunshine. I can’t wait to go back next year!
