Wrap-up: April highlights


It’s been a quiet month for events, on the plus side, I’ve had more time to read. I’ve taken full advantage of being able to borrow audiobooks online from my library. Here’s my April round-up and highlights, I hope you enjoy!

I do love going to Waterstones events. This one was with Zen Cho, Tasha Suri, Samantha Shannon and Zoe Marriott, chaired by Katie Webber. This was the first time hearing Tasha and an talk.about their books and I now need to read everything, it’s always nice to hear Samantha talk about here and all the niche research, not forgetting Katie who is one of my favourite authors and chairs.

I went along to the blogger event for The Beekeeper of Aleppo with author Christy Lefteri at the Bonnier Zaffre office. I’d been eager to read this since I first heard of it, luckily I snapped up a review copy while I was there. My event write-up can be found here, if you fancy a read.

I was invited to the Hot Key Books proof party event for Robert Muchamore’s upcoming book, Arctic Zoo. When we arrived we were given a placard to write how we want to change the world for a giveaway. There were cocktails/mocktails, goodie bags with copies of Killer T and Arctic Zoo inside and cupcakes and snacks. We then sat down for an ‘in conversation’ with Robert, chaired by Stevie Finegan, followed by an opportunity to h get our books signed.
