Random House Children's Publishers Blogger Brunch

Last weekend I got the chance to go down to London to attend another Blogger Brunch at Random House. I was up ridiculously early, and I managed to beat Luna from Luna's Little Library in the 'Who woke up earliest' competition, that wasn't really a competition, I won with getting up at 4.30am.

When I arrived in London I met up with a few other bloggers at the tube station and we all made our way to RH together.  Upon arrival we got to eat some cakes, scones, and have some much needed coffee.  We also took part in the making of the trailer for Teardrop by Lauren Kate.  We all had to write on a piece of card what last made us cry.  We then had out photographs taken but we got to hide our faces behind the card itself.  I had to get mine taken outside, and had to wait for a bus to drive past before my photo was taken.  We then all had our photo taken together (see below).  I found this picture on Luna's blog, who got it from Random House blog.

We were then moved into a conference room and got to see some amazing books being released in the next few months.  Just follow the goodreads links to find out more about the books.
