Texas Librarian Association 2014 Conference

This war third year attending TLA. We are so lucky to be able to attend every year! This year it took place in San Antonio, Texas. So we had a little road trip. We packed up Jasmine's little blue bug and we're off on an adventure.

We want to give a big thank you to all the publishers and authors for coming. We know it isn't easy dealing with us crazy bloggers! It means a lot to us that we can be involved alongside the librarians :)

Over the past few years, we've made some amazing friends. That is honestly the best part of the conference. You get to socialize with people you don't get to see all the time. You get to meet publishers and make connections. People will remember you if you've been before. Plus there's a million signings going on at all times. It's an amazing chance to meet some of your favorite authors. So we're gonna show you all our pictures. We aren't going to show off all the books we got. If you check our Monthly Wrap Ups you'll get to see what we read as we read it. Or you can go see Marissa's Top Ten Tuesday. A lot of the books we're going to be reading these next few months will probably be TLA books. Check the bottom of the post for a giveaway!

Us with Sophie Jordan, Laini Taylor, Kiersten White, Jim Di Bartolo,  Kornpop the Klown, and Chris our favorite Tigers Curse Guy.

Us with our favorite bloggers Mary, Bex, and Alex. Jasmine with Mindy McGinnis. Us with Kami Garcia.

Us with Alexandra Bracken, Jennifer E. Smith, Polly Holyoke, Jenny Han, and David Levithan.

Marissa and the hilarious Elizabeth Eulberg. She hinted a little about her next book. Get excited!

We have a few giveaways in mind. But for right now we're only going to do one. It's for an entire signed hardcover set of the Shiver series by the super awesome Maggie Stiefvater, which is one of our favorite series ever. This giveaway is US ONLY.
