I went along to the Orion Blogger Brunch hosted at Carmelite House, home of the Hachette group. When we arrived we had a chance to get some drinks and snacks and chat to other bloggers before sitting down for the main portion of the event. Now onto the fun part… books, I’m going to do a brief run through of the highlights and books I’m really looking forward to.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the stunning illustrated edition of The Secret Garden, designed by the talented MinaLima graphic designers and published by Harper Design. I had so much fun at The Little Mermaid launch back in March, I knew this wasn’t one to be missed. The launch was hosted at the MinaLima store on Greek Street and was upstairs in the new gallery dedicated to the illustrated classics. I arrived with the lovely Ana a little early and looked around the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts galleries before going in, the whole place is gorgeous and I’m already planning my next visit to the shop asap.
Today I have a quick event write-up to share with you all. Anyone who knows me will know how much I love the Red Queen series. As soon as I found out Victoria Aveyard was coming back to the U.K. I’ve kept my eyes peeled for the official announcement and tickets going on sale, I grabbed one as soon as I saw it, I had no trouble getting out of bed at 1:30AM to buy it. Even though I had to wait an extra two weeks, I bought a ticket and book bundle as the tour exclusive had beautiful blue sprayed edges and included a bookmark and poster. I never say no to bookish swag and both the poster and bookmark are AMAZING and match my awesome War Storm tote Orion were giving away in the pre order campaign.
On June 1st I went along to the London Eve Of Man event in At James’s Church in Piccadilly, hosted by Waterstones and was chaired by the wonderful Katie Webber, author of Wing Jones and the upcoming Only Love Can Break Your Heart. If you haven’t read it yet, you really should. As soon as I saw the event announcement on the Waterstones twitter account, I knew had to go and grabbed a ticket straight away. I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on this book and I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to meet them and listen to them talk about it. Especially after Tom’s event at the end of last year, which was amazing!
May has been a brilliant month for books, I’ve had such a blast reading all the new (and old) books and going to bookish events. I’ve round up my highlights to share with you today.
March has been an awesome month for books. From awesome new releases to bookish events, Its been an absolute blast! Here are some of my highlights of the past month.
As some of you know I was invited to the Hot Key Books Fantasy Feast, in Brunswick House’s Saloon Room. As a huge fan of Holly and Sebastien, and having recently read Alexandra’s brilliant To Kill A Kingdom I was beyond excited to be invited and hang out with some of my favourite authors.
