DUDES!! Yallfest 2013 has an official author list and It.IS. EPIC!! OMG.

For those of you who don't know, Yallfest is a Young Adult book festival held in Charleston, South Carolina one day in the fall. They have author signings and panels and it's great fun!  I went last year and got books signed by Stephanie Perkins, Jenny Han, Carrie Ryan, David Levithan and Simone Elkeles just to name a few! This year YALLFEST will be on Saturday, November 9th and I. CAN'T WAIT!!   It's so worth going!  It was actually my very first bookish event ever and it was perfect.  You can read my recap post from last year HERE if you want :) It's a 6ish hour drive from me, but I plan on going at least the day before and then staying until the following Monday to enjoy GORGEOUS Charleston!  It's such a sweet city! ANYWAYS, The AUTHORS!!

Here's the current list, which may change a bit. More authors may be added. The TOP THREE authors I'm MOST STOKED about are Leigh Bardugo, Veronica Roth, and VERONICA ROSSI!!   Veronica Roth is one of the keynote speakers this year.
