It was that time again. It was time for the Festival of Books presented by LA Times, held at USC! And this year, I decided to attend both days!! It was so much fun!
On a rainy Saturday, my baby sister and I went to the festival early to try to get a glimpse of Stan Lee knowing that there will be a huge crowd. And yes...there were massive amounts of people! We waited in line to get a copy of Stan Lee's latest memoir written as a comic book. While we waited in line, we were able to watch his interview. I got to say...he is hilarious!

As we were waiting for our copy of the book, I decided to check out the festival's schedule. And guess who was next after Mr. Lee? The Property Brothers!!!! Jonathan and Drew! I had no idea that they were going to be there.
My mom is a huge fan of their show and I love sitting with her to watch it with her. So of course, my sister and I stayed to buy their book and get it signed. By the way, they are absolutely good looking in person!

I also got to meet a very sweet author that I've never knew about before over at the Romance Books booth. I even got a copy of Jan Moran's book. I can't wait to read it!

At 1:30 p.m., my friend and I attended Sylvia Day's panel. I love reading her historical romances so I liked learning about her contemporaries like the popular Crossfire series.

Afterward, we went home lugging with us many bags of books and swag (my shoulders are still soar from all the carrying).
I had a ton of fun this weekend! I can't wait for next year's festival!
