A couple weeks ago we were invited to have brunch with Nikole and Catherine from Scholastic Canada while they were in town for Salon du Livre. They also invited Canadian author Cecil Castellucci (The Plain Janes, First Day on Earth) to join us! It was one of the most fun things I've been able to participate in relating to books and blogging!
We got to talk about things like blogging, books and most importantly, Cecil's latest novel, First Day on Earth (review). It's always fun when you get to hear how the author came to write a book and what their inspirations were. We also found out that Cecil has two upcoming projects: a book that alternates between prose and comic illustrations and also a science fiction duology (can't wait!). Her Plain Janes books will be going back into print as well, and I'm definitely going to grab copies!

A great surprise was that Nikole and Catherine had prepared personalized bags of Scholastic books for each of us!
