Wrap-up: September highlights

Hello!

Today I have my monthly wrap-up post to share with you all. It’s been a fun and busy month with all the awesome events and new books so I’m only going to run through the highlights.

Events:

 

Emily Danforth signing:

I went along to Gays The Word to get my copy of Emily Danforth’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post signed. I’d been meaning to get a copy for awhile and managed to get a copy with Pride sprayed edges, it’s gorgeous! Emily is so kind and friendly, and have us signed a signed movie postcard and Cameron Post pencil. I can’t wait to start reading it!

The 6th was the launch event for And The Ocean Was Our Sky by patrick Ness on HQS Wellington. I had so much fun at this event and always enjoy listening to Patrick talk about his books. After the talk we had the chance to get our books signed before heading out to the deck for drinks and catch up with so many awesome people. There was Bathsheba shaped bookmarks at the signing table and posters on the deck, I’m going to frame mine once I’ve got it signed.

Drink YA:

the 25th was September’s Drink YA at Clerkenwell and Social, celebrating the publication of Hank Green’s An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. The event was sponsored by Trapeze Books, who kindly provided complimentary copies of the books for everyone, along with Carl pin badges, drinks and food. It was nice to catch up with bookish friends,I brought my sister along this time so it was even more exciting. I can’t wait to start reading it.

I was invited to a blogger screening of The House With a Clock in its Walls held at Enterainment One’s London HQ. I had been so excited about this movie since watching a trailer, more so after finding out it was a book. It did not disappoint, I was already planning my next trip before leaving the building. We were also given a copy of the book, I’m so excited to start it. You can find my full write-up here.

I was invited to the Hot Key Books Blogger Brunch with epic Hot Key authors Sebastien De Castell and Alexandra Christo, as a huge fan of their books I jumped at the chance to attend this event. There were Krispy Kreme donuts, pastries, books and readings. I had so much fun and can’t wait to start reading Soulbinder! My full write-up of the event with more photos will hopefully go up later this week. I highly recommend their books, Spellslinger is one of my all time favourite series.
