|My Pretty mask!|
From there we made the epic journey up to the top floor. This walk really makes you realise how unfit you are. I was somewhat puffed out I am sad to admit!!

We got to the events room were all told to pick ourselves out a scary mask from a big box. I picked myself a rather beautiful witches mask (my dog didn't think it so nice though)
A little later we were told to look for a coloured dot in the mask - if you had a colour you won some stuff, sadly all of ours were colourless :( But we did get to pick up some free book swag at the end, so no complaints!!

Cassie was then led out with her interviewer and also fab author friend Sarah Rees Brennan! Cassie and Sarah seemed equally as excited as all of us.
They started off with Sarah just asking Cassie some basic questions and then went on to a pop quiz where members of the audience got to win bits related to Cassie's work. This made me realise I have a terrible memory and need to study harder when going to events. I mean we should all be able to name the cats in the Tmi series right?!!!
Next up Sarah picked questions that the audience wanted answers for. There was some talk of mangoes that went right over my head!! Still unsure of that one!! But subjects like South Carolina were easy to pick up on - Cassie has some saucy minded fans!!!
We then went on to a speed round of questions where everything was done very fast and very short. Cassie shocked us all with her epic speed and quick thought up answers. She knows her stuff!!
The talk lasted around an hour and was just fantastic, so entertaining and filled with laughs.
Next up we had to journey back down to the main floor and joined another big queue. This time for the signing. To add to the excitement Sarah was also signing which was fantastic as I had a couple of books that needed signing from her too.
This queue did take quite a while, but that is completely down to Cassie having written so many great books. We were all more than happy to wait our turn. I had about 6 books that I wanted signed, some people had even more. Luckily for us Cassie was more than happy to sign everything and chat with us all.
Cassie asked me if I was team Will or Team Jem, which I had to say I'm really not fussy!! Both are such awesome characters. I ended up saying I was team lover of all - I think that suits me well!
Cassie and Sarah kindly had a photo with me, which I adore - this needs to go on my wall of awesome I think!!

This was such an incredible event which I would love to thank Cassie, Sarah, Foyles & Walker Books for making it so special
