Oblong Books and Music will be hosting – excuse me while I hyperventilate – HOLLY BLACK, CASSANDRA CLARE and SARAH REES BRENNAN. Holy crap you guys I am going to explode from excitement. I highly suggest you all make the road trip for this event. It will be totally worth it. ALSO let me tell you, Oblong Books is one of those stores that is not snooty towards adult YA fans. They are fantastic. I will definitely be at this event as well. RSVP is required and you can find out more about the event by clicking here.
ALL SUMMER LONG:
Raise your hand if you like audiobooks. Raise your hand if you like YA. Raise your hand if you like free YA audiobooks. I bet your hand is kind of tired of being raised. All summer long SYNC is giving away two free downloadable audiobooks a week. I already clicked as fast as I could to get this week’s offerings – The Eleventh Plague and The Grapes of Wrath.
