I’m saving my next audible credit for Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Prince which comes out in December (!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!)  . But that means I have two more weeks until that one is released. What should be my next audiobook? I picked these titles up at my awesome public library and need some help deciding:

Sleeping Freshman Never Lie by David Lubar

Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

Gilda Joyce Pyschic Investivator by Jennifer Allison

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

Specials (Uglies #3) by Scott Westerfeld

Fallen by Lauren Kate

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I need help with this one…

Geeking Out, Just a Little

Today I’m blogging from the 39th Annual FAME Conference.

You may be thinking “FAME? I’m gonna live forever!?!”

Not that FAME! This is the Florida Association for Media in Education so I’m here with hundreds of other Media Specialists from around Florida. It’s pretty cool to hang out with and learn alongside fellow book lovers all day!

What’s also great about the FAME conference is that there are authors here!! Last year I met Caroline B. Cooney, Margaret Peterson Haddix (!), and Jessice Day George (!!). I completely geeked out on them and this year is no different.

So far today I’ve had a chance to chat with a few authors while they signed books for my kids. First up, M.C. Delaney author of Obi, Gerbil on the Loose which was a Sunshine State book (elementary) last year. My 6th graders like this title.

Now I also got to talk a little with Jennifer Allison author of the Gilda Joyce series. The newest in the series is set in St. Augustine, Florida which is right around the corner!

I’ve already reviewed books by the next two authors Greg Logsted and James
Preller since their books are on this year’s Sunshine State list. Greg Logsted wrote the spy novel, Alibi Junior High which I loved and so do my kids!

James Preller (super nice man! Loved chatting with him about his influences while writing Bystander.

Anything supernatural is a win with my girls at school. Kirsten White wrote Paranormalcy andSupernaturally. She was very friendly and enjoyed hearing about my students.

Thank you to all the authors who signed books and were so friendly!  Tomorrow Roland Smith and Gordon Korman will be speaking also! We so excited!
