Last Saturday I attended the TeensRead Winter + Spring Preview hosted by Raincoast Books in Vancouver. Thank you so much for the invite Raincoast! I had a great time meeting all you ladies and hearing you talk about upcoming YA releases.
I was pretty nervous since this was my very first bookish event. It was a very friendly atmosphere though and all the bloggers were very enthusiastic about the titles and just books in general. I was very quiet (I usually am) but I had a very fun time! I met Olivia who blogs at We Like To Book and she works at Chapters! I've always wanted to work at Chapters! A shoutout to Olivia - thank you for talking to me :D At the end of the event, we took a very nice group picture. It's on Raincoast's Instagram right here if you want to see. I wanted to save the picture but Instagram won't let me haha. Also, I realized after that the Raincoast ladies weren't in it! Please get in the picture next time!!
The Toronto bloggers were also present through Google Hangout. I saw quite a few familiar face from twitter like Ri from Hiver&Café! She saw me and DMed me. It was really funny. We both wanted to wave but felt it might be too awkward so we sort of ended up just staring at each other (yep not awkward at all). Check out her recap, #RiGoesOutside with all the Toronto bloggers!
These are some of the titles that I'm super excited about! Click on the cover for the Goodreads link with more info ;)
I didn't include ones like The Winner's Kiss and The Beauty of Darkness since they're super popular already so it goes without saying I'm excited for them :D Here is a complete list of all the titles the ladies presented (click to enlarge):
Do you see anything you're excited for? Are there any books on this list you haven't heard about but has now made it onto your radar?
Each blogger also got an awesome swag bag full of goodies. I was super lucky to discover an ARC of Truthwitch in mine! I was really calm when I saw it but the moment I got home I freaked out lol. Then I pretty much devoured the book. I LOVED IT!!! Now I'm dying for book 2. The waiting is going to be pure torture but I'll definitely be re-reading Truthwitch again and again!
Thank you again to the ladies at Raincoast Books for hosting such an awesome event. I can't wait for all the new releases! Now back to the waiting ;)
