When Paige Toon started adding events for her promotion of If I Go Anywhere I had hoped to have got to her Bluewater signing until it became apparent I just wouldn’t get that Saturday off work.
Then the events alongside Lindsey Kelk popped up. I’m not going to lie there were so many fantastic author combos if I had time and money I would have got to more. I’ve been desperate to meet Mhari McFarlane since I devoured You Had Me At Hello all those years gone by. I’m a huge fan of Isabelle Broom – although she’s given me major travel envy I’ve still not visited Mojacar yet.
Anyway I could ramble for hours then London was announced with Lindsey Kelk and Lucy Vine. I still haven’t read a Lucy novel but I’ve had Hot Mess on my Kindle for a while and at the event I purchased her latest which sounds fabulous and should be my next read after what I’m in the middle of.
I’d booked the day off so I could chill I was hoping to have finished Paige’s book but I also had revision to do so revision and trying to balance having some me time and getting things done had to happen.
The weather was god awful but I wasn’t letting that dampen my spirits most of my bookish lovelies had been to the event a week previous but I wasn’t going to miss out and I’m glad as I did meet some lovely readers. On my way in I grabbed a Salted Caramel Latte and a piece of Tiffin from Costa two of my naughty treats when given half a chance and when I arrived I was handed a glass of Prosecco which was also appreciated.
I’m still a million miles behind on the I Heart series but I had to buy a physical copy of the last one which Lindsey kindly signed for me. I have a few on paperback but they always can’t be found when you’re actually going to a signing, I know the first one was loaned to someone and gone forever and I’ve been listening to them which is always fun so I think I will listen up to the latest and then my signed copy will come out.
Right the event – I loved attending the one last July in the church it was such a fun night and left me with a happy heart and I knew this one would be just as much fun. This time round I didn’t ask a question but so many people had good ones. I love just watching how the authors interact and their genuine passion for their books and their friends. I must admit like most book events of my faves it left me wanting a holiday and time to just sit and read.
Paige’s latest I’ve finished and I finally posted my review yesterday. It’s always lovely when one of your favourite authors remembers you 🥰
I think where I am in the I Heart series may have to be my next audible treat and Lucy’s latest is in my up and coming pile. I anticipate finish that and delving into Hot Mess which has been sat patiently on my kindle for what seems like forever.
I love instax and this just made me realise I should use mine more. OMG I may have to take mine to my next event. Which I don’t have at the moment damn missed a trick could have taken it on Wednesday. I love that I’m being as I still have so much good to come. I adore that these events don’t make you feel bad for being behind it just makes you eager to indulge and I love that feeling.
Thank you ladies for a fabulous night of fun and escapism at best. You guys look fabulous my hair not so much damn rain. Thank you to Jess Barratt for the gorgeous photos and ladies it was a pleasure I cannot wait to do it again.
