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.
June has been one of my favourite bookish months this year, there’s been amazing events, books and some seriously epic bookmail!
It’s that time of year again, guests, panels and workshops have been announced and the complete schedule is now live. Today I have YALC rec and TBR post. I will update this post as I read and review them, the links will take you to my reviews. I hope you enjoy.
Today I have a book tag, I haven’t done this one before. I found this on Sarah’s blog and thought I’d give it a go. Definitely go check out Sarah’s blog, honestly, it’s brilliant!
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.
