Book of the month

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eager
Published by Catnip

Quite honestly I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is just brilliant and you all need to read it

Book events

I went to a few book things this month whilst staying with Sarah. These were

  • UKYA meet up organised by Keris Stainton involving lots of lovely authors and bloggers. I got lots of books signed and generally had a wonderful time
  • Preview screening of Now is good. I only have one thing to say about that film so far .... JEREMY IRVINE!!!! (I will say more later but literally can't due to warner bros confidentitality agreements)
  •  Strange Chemistry Launch at the British Library. What a fantastic party to celebrate the launch of the new imprint from Angry Robot. I had a wonderful time, met their lovely authors, got a unicorn and made a menance of myself on the tube with my bubbles from the good bag (FYI amanda knows how to put the best goody bags together!)
