  1. Never been to an author signing. I think I'd want to go to any of my favorite authors' book signings! :)

  2. Yes! I recently went to my first! I saw Kelley Armstrong in Toronto! I had a blast!

  3. I've been to dozens of book signings! I used to live in Edinburgh, Scotland, where one of the biggest book festivals in the world is held yearly. I've met Neil Gaiman, Ian Rankin, Eoin Colfer, Stuart Hill, Terry Deary, Edwin Morgan, -- lots of people. And here in Salt Lake I've met Aprilynne Pike, Shannon Hale, -- and even Stephenie Meyer, which is rather funny, in retrospect.
    Unfortunately, in all my time living in Edinburgh, I never did meet JK Rowling (who lives there, too), so she's the one I'd meet if I could!

  10. T_____________T You are sooooooooo lucky T_T Not living in the US really stinks when you're such a fan of YA T_T but well enjoy for those of us who can't go!! Tahereh T_T

    ^_^ I'd loooove to meet Maggie Stiefvater, Leah Clifford, Tahereh Mafi, Kimberly Derting, Daisy Whitney, Mike Mullin, Rachel Vincent Gayle Forman...though I think I die if I ever truly meet all of them if I get speechless and all starstruck when they reply to my comments or tweet back to me I can just imagine what would happen if I met them in person!

    Again, have fun!
    ps. Sorry I've been a silent stalker lately...I've been stalking you guys mostly on twitter but I'm back now after row and row and row of long illnesses lol :P so BEWARE

  11. I think I'd like to go to a signing by John Green. The Fault in Our Stars would be great to get signed. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've had the amazing opportunity to go to a number of signings, plus BEA a few years! My favorite so far was getting insulted by Lemony Snicket :) And Sunday I'm going to the NY Spring Into the Future tour signing and I am SUPER excited to see Tahereh Mafi and all the other authors there :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. Never been to a signing. I was hoping that I'd be in London when J. K. Rowling's new book is coming out, but unfortunately I'm not. But that would have been cool!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Never have been to an author signing. I would LOVEEEEE to meet JOHN GREEN and his brother :) They are the best but you know John is more awesome than Hank because John writes :)
    I am from Romania so the dream is far away from becoming true but you never know, let's stay optimistic :) Dreams sometimes become reality.
    xoxo

  15. Congratulations, Amy! ^^

    I never been going to signing book ever. If i could go sometimes, I would love to meet J.K. Rowling to signed my Harry Potter's collection. But since i lived in Indonesia, i think it only daydreaming for me :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, this is great! I haven't, but I would love to meet Taherah Mafi. It would be a great opportunity for me to ask her questions. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I adore signings whenever I can actually get to one. I was lucky enough to travel to NYC for the NYC Teen Author Festival last week and met so many beloved authors! There are some local authors near me coming on the 20th, too.

    They're so much fun. I always love meeting everyone! I wanted to go to a signing in NYC with Veronica Rossi, Taherah Mafi, and Lauren Oliver tomorrow, but I don't want to pay to go to NYC again. Boo, oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't been to a signing but i can't wait until i do. I live in England, so authors only really come to the big cities so i miss out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have been to a book signing. It's a lot of fun, especially if the author gives a bit of a talk & a reading too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have unfortunately never been to a book signing. I would like to see Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, or Sarah Dessen.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have been to one book signing with author Margaret Peterson Haddix. It was a lot of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've been to one book signing before with a children's book author that I can not remember her name. But I would love to go to a book signing with Jodi Picoult, Jonathan Kellerman or Michael Connelly.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Never been to one :(
    I'd love to go and see Veronica Roth!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wish!, but sadly no :(. If I could meet any author it would be Veronica Roth I salute her in 'Divergent' ;D

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never been to a book signing but would love to see:
    . Harlan Coben
    . Jodi Picoult
    . Mo Willems

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well first, I'm completely jealous of you! I want to go to that signing! I've been to one, for a local girl who decided to write a book and it got published.. sadly, it wasn't very good and I couldn't finish. I'd love to go to a bigger signing, but I live in the middle of nowhere and authors don't come within a 3-4 hour drive of me :(

    Some on my list are Victoria Schwab, Michelle Hodkins, and Christopher Paoulini.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have never been to an author signing. To be honest, I think that it would be amazing to meet any of the authors of the books I've read - they are BRILLIANT people! :)

    I'd say top of my list: Charlaine Harris, JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Laurell K. Hamilton, JR Ward, Julie Kagawa, Megan Miranda, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Laura Ingalls Wilder!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sadly, =( I have never been to an author signing. But they are cool events for both authors and readers. I'd love to go to one sometime. I think I'd ask the authors too many questions about writing, though. xD I'd have to restrain myself. If I ever went to one, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet Veronica Rossi, Lisa Bergren, Erynn Mangum, Melody Carlson, Deeanne Gist or Siri Mitchell. They all seem like such fun people! If I could meet ANY author, I would want to meet C. S. Lewis or Tolkien, but I doubt that will ever happen on this side of heaven. =P

  29. I've never been to a book signing :S I like to meet J.K. Rowling. Tahareh Mafi is on my list too because she is so fun and funny :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have never been to an author signing before. I would love to see J.K. Rowling and Cassandra Clare. Both authors are amazing and Harry Potter and The Mortal Instruments are my two absolute favorite series of all time. All the books I own and have read multiple times. Both authors have created such exciting worlds, creating magic with their writings. I will forever being reading these books and future books to come from these two authors.

  31. I live in Florida and surprisingly there aren't too many book signings here. So far I've been to a Catherine Gilbert Murdock and Rick Yancey signing at the library I work at. Both of them were really nice and funny.

    The authors I would LOVE to meet are J.K. Rowling, Colleen Houck, Lani Woodland, Cassandra Clare, Scott Westerfeld, Stacy Jay, Kelly Creagh, Maggie Stiefvater and Lisa Mangum.

    Hope you guys have fun!

  41. I got to see Jodi Picoult in Hadley, MA! She read from "Sing Me Home" and answered questions, and signed books. When it was my turn, she complimented my Tinkerbell necklace, and I had a fangirl crush for weeks!

  42. I have never been to a book signing event before, but I have been lucky enough to have authors sign their books during lectures and such. The most notable was Gloria Steinem(one of my heroes). If I were to go to a book signing, I would seek out Neil Gaiman, and probably make a fool of myself in the process!

    ReplyDelete
  60. The only author signings I've been to were at ALA 2010, where I saw a ton of different authors. There are a lot of authors I would love to meet. But signings are secondary; what I really want is to make a friend!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've been to a few...Neil Gaiman, Raymond Feist, Ann M. Martin, Sherman Alexie, Sue Grafton to name a few. I haven't been to any in a while though! I would love to see Julie Kazagawa though.

Maas, Leigh Bardugo, Laurie Halse Anderson, Veronica Roth, Rae Carson, Suzanne Collins, and (no surprise) JK Rowling. Gosh that's a lot. It's too bad that no one ever comes around my area.
