On December 1, 2011, Marie Lu celebrated the release of LEGEND (which hit bookstores on November 29, 2011) at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach, California. Gizzy B, Sailor Mizz and I all got to the store a little early to help Marie set up the food – which included cupcakes, brownies and cookies (NUTELLA COOKIES!) from our friend, Just Jenn Designs. It was a successful and fun night. I think it’s safe to say that the core of her growing fan base were all in attendance that night.
Marie started the night by reading an excerpt from her book before answering questions from the audience. She even gave away two rare ARC copies of LEGEND to people who asked her questions. She spent the majority of the night signing books and talking to friends and fans alike. We were all very excited and happy for her success. Twilight producer, Isaac Klausner, even stopped by to show his support and to get his own copy of the book signed!

Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore was a great and is possibly my new favorite bookstore. They are a specialty store that mostly focuses on Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Mystery. Basically, all a geek could hope for in one store. If you live in Southern California and live close to one of their branches, you should definitely pay them a visit. We had a great time at the Redondo Beach branch. They have fantastic events with notable authors too.
Remember, you can buy LEGEND at all local bookstores or online. Get your copy now!
