It is no secret that Leigh Bardugo has come out with a new book, The Language of Thorns, and that it is absolutely beautiful. I mean, look at it! It’s beautiful both covered and naked!
This book was released on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, and already people are raving. So, it is with great pride that I say that today, Thursday 28, 2017 (by the time I publish this it would have been yesterday), I got to meet Leigh Bardugo for the second time and get my copy of the novel signed.
The event was extremely crowded, close to two hundred people were there, and I have never been so happy. A few years ago, when Six of Crows first came out, there were less than half of those people at Leigh signing. This time around, it was so crowded that I had to stand in the back because they had run out of seats.
And yes, I was a little bitter to be standing, but I was also so happy because Leigh definitely deserves all of her fans and all of the people that were so eager to meet her.
Just as before, Leigh was super friendly and funny, and I loved hearing her talk. When the signing began, and I went up to her, I told her how I had told everyone I knew to read Six of Crows. My friend, who I converted to the fandom, went with me as well. We took pictures, and Leigh signed our books. In the end, she thanked me for being a book pusher and getting people to read her books. It was absolutely wonderful.
All in all, I had a wonderful time and just wanted to share it with you all.
