The first three books we got to hear about were The Dark Days Club, Goldfish, and Maladapted. We were also lucky to meet the authors for these books and have excerpts read to us.
The Dark Days Club
There some amazing books coming from Walker Books soon, and I can't wait to get my hands on them. Luckily the bloggers that attend all came away with a copy of The Dark Days Club and Maladapted. Although copies of Goldfish are not finished yet, we can't wait to get hold of this book. Nat Luurtsema had the entire room in stitches, laughing so much at the excerpt.
We also came away with copies of Hour of the Bees and Twenty Questions for Gloria.
Other books we heard about were MARTians (expected publication 7th Jan), The Bone Queen (expected publication 3rd March), Shadow Box (expected publication 3rd March), with paperback editions of The Rest of Us Just Live Here (expected publication 5th May) and Hell & High Water (expected publication 5th May)
Not only did we get to hear about new books, we also got to drink coffee, and eat scones and sandwiches. I had a really great time and met up with some amazing bloggers.
