Restore Me Event Recap!

Hi there, everyone!

If you've been on social media lately, it's pretty likely that you've seen information about Restore Me, the newest release from Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me series. Well, there was a launch day event at Books of Wonder in NYC for the book earlier this week, and since all three of us are diehard fans of the series, we just had to be there! So without further ado, here's a little recap on how awesome the event was!



For starters, we got there super early to get our books, hoping to be first in line -- but we were already #27, five hours early!! It was super awesome to realize that the event was slated to have such a crazy turnout.



Finally, the moment arrived -- we got to the actual event, and it was already packed! We had to sit on the floor but we didn't mind at all because we were so close to Tahereh and Ransom! While we were waiting for the event, we chatted with some other people sitting around waiting, and pretty much everyone had already opened their copies of Restore Me and started reading.



But then we were in for another surprise -- because Adam Silvera dropped by before the signing started! As a former Books of Wonder employee, Adam stopped by to show his support and say hello. Although we didn't get a picture with him, Jessica fangirled really hard when she found out he was there!

And then the event got under way. Tahereh and Ransom answered a lot of really detailed and awesome questions from the audience -- if you're interested in hearing more of what they said (and seeing some videos!), you can check out our launch event Twitter thread.



And then it was signing time! While we waited to be called on line, we met up with Dana of DanaSquare, who was our first blogging friend when we started all those years ago, and the first person we ever met at the first-ever BookCon! 



And then we actually got our books signed! (And we also got an extra signed copy to give away on our blog -- click HERE to enter/get more info!)




And that was it! It was time to head home and immediately dive into Restore Me, which we're all currently reading right now! It was an amazing night filled with lots of fun and lots of friends and we are so thankful and grateful to have had that experience!



So, that was our wrap up of this amazing event! Have you read the Shatter Me series? Are you looking forward to reading Restore Me? Leave all of your comments and thoughts down below -- we'd love to hear them! :-)
