Update: Conventions and Festivals 2015

Earlier this year we did a post on what we were looking forward to in 2015, and about events we were aiming to attend. Now that it's a little into the year we have all of our plans set in stone, so we decided that we would post an update on what we have planned.

April will be giving us readers something amazing, YallWest! The spin off our Yallfest! We have decided with this being it's first year that we will be dipping out of this event. Were going to wait and see how it plays out. Once we get the skinny from our Cali friends we will decide from there... Ya
know before we take on a cross country adventure there. So look out California there's a good chance were coming for you next year! 

In May we sadly wont be able to attend BEA due to our work schedules, but we are for sure headed to BookCon. SO YUP YOU HEARD RIGHT SBSR IS HEADED TO NEW YORK!!! May 30th and 31st we will be at the Javits Center. We're so excited to attend and meet everyone there. Well be going to panels, signings, and hopefully a few meet ups! Oh and we will finally, FINALLY, get to meet Colleen Hoover! Anytime we go to see her or she is near something pops up and the event gets cancelled! So fingers and toes crossed that nothing happens in this case. The list of authors, celebrities, and publishers that will be attending this event are insane! We are also hoping that there will be an Ansolo event one of the nights there so we can squeeze that in. If he has a show while were there we might actually die!

The biggest months this year for us are definitely October-November. October 30th through November 1st for the first time ever we will be attending the Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta.We've never been to this event before, but had so many people message us once they saw we were going. The feedback we've heard has been amazing, and has up so jacked to make the trip to our sister state. Well have a chance to go to cast panels, signings, contest, and other walker like events! WE ARE SERIOUSLY FANGIRLING OVER GETTING TO MEET STEVEN YEUN AND NORMAN REEDUS! We can't wait to cover this event and let y'all know how it is! Hopefully well be able to add this to the growing list of yearly adventures. November 13th and 14th we will once again be hitting up Yallfest! If you don't know it's currently the nations largest Ya book festival and it's held in our town!!! This event is probably our favorite all year. Again well be doing panels and signings. Last year we were able to meet some huge authors like Jennifer Armentrout, James Dashner, and Veronica Roth. The list for 2015 attendees hasn't been posted yet, but I promise once it has well be posting if for y'all. We're really hoping to authors like Ransom Riggs, Tahereh Mafi, and Victoria Aveyard will snag some spots this year (we could probably name 100 more hopefuls). November 19th we will be hitting up the early screening and marathon of The Hunger Games. We will be seeing all the movies leading up to the premiere of MockingJay Pt. 2. Saying were excited about seeing how this movie series wraps up would be an understatement. 

As far as the year goes these are all the major events we have going on. Can't wait to write post for all these events and to see all of you there.
