My friend, Giselle from Book Nerd Canada
went to the Marissa Meyer book signing out in her awesome
part of the world.  Being the awesome person that she is
she offered to get me a copy of the book, signed by Marissa!

I was so excited when it arrived, and to find some very
awesome swag tucked away inside.

She is such an awesome, sweet girl.  If you’re not following her,
why the heck not!  She is amazing!  I heart her to pieces!


Signed copy of Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer
