    I love going and lining up at author signings. It is surprising who you meet and talk to. Maybe we’ll see you at one soon.

    Chapters is my favourite bookstore and I like the photos because they capture what being an author and reader is all about. It would be awesome to win an ARC. I have not had the opportunity to read this Author’s books, but this will be on my TBR list. Thanks for the chance.

    That’s so exciting that you got to meet her and that she recognized you! Sounds like it was a fun event. My favourite of her books is The Scorpio Races. It’s one of my favourites I’ve read this year!

    I love that you ran into another book blogger who recognized you. I wish Maggie would come back to London, I missed her when she was here last summer. My favourite book by her (so far) is Shiver but I have heard The Scorpio Races might steal that spot.

    I haven’t actually read any of her books before, but I’ve only heard wonderful things about The Raven Boys, so that’ll probably be my first Maggie Stiefvater book (:

    There aren’t many book signings close to cornwall xD and I would love to go to some but hopefully someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    LUCKY!!! I would have loved to have been there. I love her Shiver series (Amazing)

    How did I not know she was in town?!? Obviously I’ve got to be more vigilant! The Shiver Series is on my TBR and I’ve heard such great things about it!

  14. Lynn

    Based on the description, I think that the Raven Boys could become my new favourite. Definitely putting this on my to read list.

    I enjoyed the Scorpio Race.

    So jealous you got to meet Maggie she is one of my fave authors. My blog partner Kelly couldn’t make it her signing in Brampton for us for some serious personal reasons it was hard for me since I was busy before hand also .But her Shiver Series is beyond what I expected I fell in love right from the start!!!

  17. Ashley

    October 9, 2012 at 11:17 AM

    I so far haven’t read any of her books! eep! *Sad Face* She’s an author I never knew about until recently but I am DYING to read Raven Boys. Like DYING! All I’ve heard is good things!

  18. Ashley

    October 9, 2012 at 11:14 AM

    You’re one lucky chic! I wish Hamilton had more of a draw, no one ever really comes here, maybe I should start a petition about getting mroe signings here LOL
    Since I don’t drive I’m kinda SOL on going out to many other GTA locations… ๐Ÿ™ one day perhaps lol

    Looks like it was a very fun event! ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read anything by Maggie yet, but I have the fist in the Shiver series in my TBR pile. Though Raven Boys appeals to me more.

    I love that you bumped into a fellow Canadian book blogger while there – how fun!

  20. Sarah O

    October 5, 2012 at 2:46 AM

    This is terrible but I haven’t read any of her books yet. Strangely, I do want to read them, but lately I’ve been gravitating almost exclusively towards the contemporary genre so I guess that’s why. Can’t wait to read this book though.

  21. Zara Alexis

    October 5, 2012 at 1:20 AM

    I can’t believe I didn’t know this was happening! I’m five minutes away from the Chapters in Brampton!!! Argghhhhh! (But, still glad you went and were able to post all about it!). I don’t have a favourite book by the author…perhaps “The Raven Boys” will be the one! Thanks as always, Giselle.

    October 3, 2012 at 11:07 PM

    I’m not sure which Maggie Stiefvater book was my favourite! I think I’m leaning towards Shiver though. I really enjoyed the first one in the trilogy, but I did love the others, too…which is why I’m not sure how to choose! haha I haven’t read any of her other books yet, but I definitely want to! ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Courtney

    October 2, 2012 at 12:53 PM

    Looks like an awesome book. Definitely going to add it to the “to be read” shelves.

    Wow, how amazing to meet Maggie in person ๐Ÿ™‚ You lucky girl!!! I have yet to read The Raven Boys, my new copy is sitting in front of me right now, lol! But one of my favorites of hers is The Scorpio Races, and of course, Sam ๐Ÿ™‚ He stole a piece of my heart!
    Great post, thank you for sharing!!!

    I really want this book I loved all her other books it would be on the moon if i got a sighed ARC!

    So great you got to meet Maggie. The Scorpio Races is one of my favorite books of all time!

  28. Lynn

    The Shiver Trilogy!

  29. Samantha D

    September 27, 2012 at 9:17 PM

    I like how Ballad takes unexspected turns and how things end up working out in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I loved the whole Wolves of Mercy Falls series. It was one of those series that sticks with you.

    It looks like you had a blast at the signing. How thrilling to be recognized by an author!!!

  31. Jen Haile

    September 27, 2012 at 12:55 AM

    I loved Shiver! I also loved The Scorpio Races!

    I haven’t read any of her books, but this one looks good. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow that sounds like such a fun book signing. I wish so much that Maggie had done other Canadian signings. Love her.

    Favorite book. I really loved Forever. I also loved The Scorpio Races. Cannot wait to read The Raven Boys.

  35. Crystal Paglino

    September 26, 2012 at 9:39 PM

    I loved Forever by Maggie. I wanted the happy ending to the trilogy.

  36. Inky

    September 26, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Actually I need to read some more of her stuff. I started Scorpio but I haven’t finished it yet. Shiver trilogy didn’t work for me. ๐Ÿ˜€ But I’m really excited for Raven Boys! I’m sure it will redeem her for me.

  37. Makaela

    September 26, 2012 at 7:38 PM

    I loved Shiver!

  38. Fiery Na

    September 26, 2012 at 6:41 PM

    I don’t normally attend a lot of signings either because I don’t hear of many in my area. I’m going to make it a point to look up for more signings in the Chapters in my area. They look so fun!

    The what you learned points are really helpful ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Stephanie T.

    September 26, 2012 at 6:07 PM

    Sadly, I haven’t read any yet. Raven Boys and Scorpio Races are on my TBR list though! I hope I can get to them soon.

  40. SweetMarie83

    September 26, 2012 at 5:40 PM

    Giselle, you’re so lucky! I always feel a mixture of excitement and disappointment when I hear authors I love are going to be in the Toronto area because it’s great that they’re touring in Canada, but it sucks because it’s so close to me (2-3 hours depending where in the Toronto area) but it might as well be the other side of the world because I have no way to get there and no one to go with! *sigh* Hopefully someday.

    It’s so cool you got to meet Maggie, and it sounds like a lot of fun. And how awesome that you were recognized! I haven’t actually read any of her books yet, but I was hoping to start with The Raven Boys. Thanks for a chance to win! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s very difficult to choose a favorite book, but I loved the Shiver series and the Scorpio Race is my favorite stand alone of all times!!

  42. Erika

    September 26, 2012 at 2:56 PM

    I love the Shiver series! Thanks!

  43. Tiff

    September 26, 2012 at 1:38 PM

    I’ve actually never read a Maggie Stiefvater book, but I’ve been wanting to for ages, so yay!

    I will totally call you out if I see you in line at the Jenny Han/Siobhan Vivian signing, Giselle!

  44. Grace Li

    September 26, 2012 at 1:04 PM

    So lucky! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope she comes to Vancouver sometime.
    I’ve only been to one book signing and it was great.
    I can’t wait to read The Raven Boys.
    I think I like all of her books about equally so far. I actually really loved The Scorpio Races though. I liked that it was a stand alone book and I found the ending to be beyond beautiful.

    It looks like you had a fantastic time. Glad you got to meet this exceptional author. My favorite book by Maggie is Shiver, Book 1 of the Mercy Falls series.

  46. Proserpine

    September 26, 2012 at 11:46 AM

    Hi! Thanks for this chance! I only read Shiver! But it was pretty good, and this series: Raven Boys sounds really good! Thanks!

  47. Samantha R.

    Wish she was doing a signing near where I live! Can’t wait to read her latest.

  48. Marlene V

    This looked like a great signing to go to. I think this could be my fav. maggie stiefvater book ….

    September 26, 2012 at 9:44 AM

    Sadly, I haven’t read any yet but I’ve heard her name for a while so clearly she’s got something going ๐Ÿ™‚

    Author signings can be so much fun. I remember years ago Robert Jordan came to a Black Bond Books near where I lived. So cool to meet him in person

    LUCKY! Wish I had cool events like this around the Midwest. But nope, it’s boring here. ๐Ÿ˜›

    And I loved Shiver and The Scorpio Races. ๐Ÿ˜€

  52. Cassi

    September 26, 2012 at 6:44 AM

    My current favorite Maggie Stiefvater novel is Shiver, but I’m so excited to read The Raven Boys!!!

    • Giselle

      September 26, 2012 at 11:40 PM

      Yes, I’m sorry..Shipping is rather expensive :S

  54. Grace Lo

    September 26, 2012 at 3:01 AM

    I don’t know . . . They’re all fantastic. I loved Lament, because of its bittersweet ending, Ballad because it broke my heart in so many ways, Shiver because of its beautiful introduction to the trilogy, getting to Isabelle and Cole in Linger, and the gorgeous ending in Forever. I haven’t read The Raven Boys, and hope to do so soon!

  55. Rebecca

    September 26, 2012 at 1:51 AM

    I haven’t read anything by Maggie but I’ve heard some great things. Your either either a fan of her work or your not, that’s what I think with the mixed comments recently. Sounds like you had a blast, glad you had a good time!

  56. Jaime Lester

    September 26, 2012 at 1:41 AM

    I live in South Carolina, and there are never YA author book signings and I hate it. I would love to be able to go to signings and hear some of my favorite authors speak. I love Maggie’s books, her writing style, and characters. She is amazing. As of now, Lament and Ballad are equally my favorite Maggie books. I think The Raven Boys has the chance to take that top spot, though. Thanks for the chance to win!

  57. Megan Conway

    September 26, 2012 at 1:37 AM

    I went to Maggie’s FOREVER signing last year and it was really fun, but sadly I could not attend this one as I had night school ๐Ÿ™ I hope she does a signing in TO or somewhere close for her next book *fingers crossed*

    And my favourite Maggie book? Definitely BALLAD, though I’m sure that will change once I read THE RAVEN BOYS ๐Ÿ˜‰

  58. Holly W

    September 26, 2012 at 1:34 AM

    I am so happy you got to go! I wish I lived closer, we could totally go together! And I agree, authors are my kind of celebrity for sure. I really enjoyed the Mercy Falls series, and I have lamant and ballad on my shelf waiting to be rad.
