Yeah. These things may not really go together usually, but I think it sounds like an amazing time. Today is the third day of ArmchairBEA and the suggested topic is to talk about a real life experience with books. Well, last year I discussed meeting Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl at ComicCon, so I couldn’t write about that again. Authors don’t really visit Pittsburgh much... so that is shot as well. Hm. Shot, you say?
Since my friends and I are more on the adult side of young adult, we have frequently discussed going to the bar, having a beer or two, and discussing YA lit. Clearly we would talk about the swoon-worthy boys in YA books. Am I right or am I right?
We often say that these boys give us unrealistic expectations for “real guys.” Whatevs. That’s why we’re going to the bar to discuss books. We’re cool like that. So, what I guess I’m trying to say is you should probably join in our YA lit chats at the bar. You can do it at your local bar with your friends... or come visit us if you’re in the area. Other popular topics include television (Veronica Mars, One Tree Hill, Pretty Little Liars), movies...and the boys in them.
Join us and make us not as lame as we actually are. You could also tell me all about your chats. I would probably love that.
