Event Recap: Penguin/Razorbill Canada Fall Preview!

Yesterday (May 3rd) we went to the Penguin Group's amazing Fall preview! It was loads of fun! We got to meet more awesome bloggers, as well as the great people at penguin and just take about BOOKS! We also got to meet the author of The Gypsy King, Maureen Fergus and hear what she has to say about her book series! 




At first (after chilling a bit and snacking on food :P ), the awesome people at penguin spotlighted some amazing books coming out this fall! The way they spoke about them made Juhina & I want to read them ASAP! Check them out below and know why! You will then need to add them to your TBR pile!

- Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
- The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
- Somebody Up There Hates You by Hollis Seamon
- Isla and The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
- Just One Year by Gayle Forman
- Champion by Marie Lu
- Control by Lydia Kang
- Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz & Michael Johnston
- Fractured by Teri Terry
- Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
- All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry
- Snakeroot by Andrea Cremer





Another book that was spotlighted is "A Fool's Errand", which is the sequel to The Gypsy King by Maureen Fergus! We actually got to meet Maureen, and let me tell you, she is one hilarious women! The cover for "A Fool's Errand" cover was also revealed at the event, so you can know how excited everyone was by that surprise! We each went home with our own ARC and we can't wait to catch up to it! 



Here is a picture of me and Juhina posing with Maureen Fergus and "A Fool's Errand"! 

The awesome swag and books that we got from Penguin! Thank you!

  6. This looks great! I went to a similar thing here (with Harlequin Teen) and it's such a great way to get to know the publisher and get us interested in books!

    Yay for both of Richelle's new books!

  10. This is awesome, Juhina and Farah! I've never heard of Penguin doing something like this in the States *stomps foot*! Gosh, I'm just dying for Richelle Mead's Fiery Heart! I have Gameboard of the Gods so that takes a little of the edge off. Nice to see you had such a lovely time. :)
