Jennifer L Armentrout Event: Q&A and Signing

Jennifer L Armentrout is currently touring the UK and I was lucky enough to attend the Q&A and signing event at Waterstones Birmingham on Thursday night. Birmingham is quite a journey for me, but it was totally worth it! My bookshelf holds roughly 20 of Jennifer L Armentrout’s books, not to mention those on my kindle,…

Rachel Caine Event: Signing

A couple years ago I gave my friend the first few books in the Morganville Vampires series. She LOVED them and is up to book eleven. Today we attended Rachel Caine’s signing event at our local Waterstones together, and I think it’s time I started my own MV journey! In fact Scharlotte made my promise to read…

Soman Chainani Event: Signing

I attended a great event a Waterstones Liverpool last weekend for Soman Chainani and THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL trilogy. Jon Mayhew chaired the event, asking the author about the upcoming movie (hopefully scheduled for Christmas 2017 release), the school for Good and the school for Evil and how that idea was shaped, and…

UKYA Extravaganza

Saturday 28th February, 2pm, Waterstones Birmingham was the place to be for fans of UKYA, good company, and cake. I wrote out my name badge and then got to work putting biscuits on the snack table and bookmarks on the swag table, and then I got chance to watch some of the authors reading at…

Event: Scholastic Book Feast

My alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. BUT for good reason! I was travelling to London for a blogger brunch at Scholastic. I don’t go to things like this often because I live so far away, but I knew this would be worth the journey, and it was. I haven’t been to London for a…

Neil Gaiman Event – Reading, Q&A and Signing

On Sunday evening, my partner and I attended the Neil Gaiman event as part of Manchester Literature Festival. First there was a reading and talk about his new children’s novel, Fortunately, the Milk. Then there was a Q&A with the audience, which touched on many of his other titles and was interesting, funny and incredibly…

Sharon Jones Event – Signing

Yesterday afternoon I saw this tweet: I checked train times, got ready, caught the train (by less than a minute!) and then dashed across Liverpool in the wind and rain.

Charlaine Harris Event – Signing

It’s lovely when you meet someone you admire and they not only live up to your expectations, but surpass them. I am a big fan of Charlaine Harris’s work. I have 35 of her books on my shelf, and there are 60 of her books in this house. I love the Sookie Stackhouse series, and…

Emma Pass Event – ACID Launch

ACID, Emma Pass‘s YA dystopian debut, hit shelves on Thursday in the UK. I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a looooong time. To celebrate the release, I interviewed Emma over on the Author Allsorts blog. You can read that here. I also travelled to Chesterfield with my partner to attend the launch event,…

Maggie Stiefvater Event – Signing

A couple of years ago I really struggled with reading. I rarely found a book that I connected to. I didn’t really know much about the different genres. I didn’t have a favourite author. I didn’t have a clue what I liked to read. I discovered YA after reading SHIVER, LINGER & FOREVER by Maggie…
