    1. There's a funny story about that. Tina, our friend and I where having lunch in this little corner and she walked right past us. I turned to them and ask was that Melissa de la Cruz. So when she came out the restroom (yes we ambush coming out the restroom) we ask to take a picture with her and she was very nice about it.

  4. Love Neal Shusterman, you should definitely try his Unwind series, it's so good. And Victoria Schwab's Shades of Magic series is the best!

  6. Great list! The only one whom I've read before is Melissa de la Cruz. But I've heard of all of them and a few of their books are on my TBR pile. Were you nervous meeting them?
