Recap: Frenzy Presents - Fall 2017 Edition

If you're anything like me, you'll tend to get overly excited when you're invited along for a bookish afternoon with other book bloggers. After my many years of blogging and being a part of the community, it still brings a smile to my face when I attend these events, especially those hosted by the HCCFrenzy team over at HarperCollins Canada. Frenzy Presents is an event that's never disappointed, has always showcased a series of very promising titles, and has always had us fellow book nerds screaming over incredible guest authors and goodies. With that said, September 10th was no exception!

Recap: Penguin Random House of Canada 2017 Fall Preview

On Thursday September 7th, myself and other book bloggers, book sellers, and librarians alike were invited by Penguin Random House of Canada to not only stop by and visit their gorgeous head office, but to also take part in their fall preview event. The event was scheduled to take place both the Thursday and Friday, however I chose the Thursday due to scheduling, and because I was incredibly eager to learn more about this fall's exciting titles!

Event Recap: Fan Expo Canada 2017

Right back to sweet fandom paradise, this year's Fan Expo Canada event ran from August 31st through September 3rd in an epic 4-day extravaganza. This year, instead of doing a 3-4 day visit, I chose to instead visit for only 2 days - the Friday and Saturday. With that said, I was eager and excited to get the most out of my visits at Fan Expo Canada this year, and was equally as eager to, once again, don my lolita coords and, hopefully, not feel completely out of place the entire time. (Spoiler Alert: I didn't, because convention people are AMAZING!)

Fresh on the Shelf - September 2017 Book Releases + Giveaway

Happy September, Cupcakes!

I'm so sad to see the summer go! School is just around the corner for many of us, and summer holidays have come and gone in what I can dub one of the rainiest summers we've had in the longest time. I did plenty of reading and found some incredible favorites that have now made their way onto my re-read list. August was an incredible month for venturing outside, as well. I did a lot of fair attending and attended a few signings, as well.

As for September, I've got plenty to be excited for. Today (or rather Thursday) marks the beginning of Fan Expo Canada, a all-in-one convention for the nerdy. I'll be attending Friday and Saturday and cannot wait to check out some awesome panels, do some photo-ops and purchase some goodies. Expect to see a recap next week! As for books, there's plenty on my to-read list, including Tower of Dawn, If There's No Tomorrow, Fireblood and Warcross. Stay tuned for some reviews on the aforementioned titles ;)

Any September releases you're excited for? Be sure to let me know!

Happy reading! 📚
