TeensRead Preview Winter/Spring 2017 Recap

Sunday, 11 September 2016
So I usually don't do recaps because 1) other people do them and their's are way better and 2) I don't always remember enough details about the event to fill up a proper blog post, so it would be boring. I'm trying something new today because this was a really cool event and I want to share with you all some upcoming titles I'm excited for.

Before I begin, I'd like to thank Raincoast for inviting me to this event and to Vanessa and Jen for hosting it! I had loads of fun and I hope I can make it to the next TeensRead preview!

Now on to the actual event...

For those of you who didn't see the #TeensReadFeed hashtag on Twitter yesterday or didn't know what it was for, twice a year, Raincoast (a Canadian distributor) hosts an event where they gather a bunch or bloggers, and tell them about plenty of great upcoming reads.

(Photo credit to Vanessa on Twitter. And yes, that's me in the back.)

Here are some of the books that were talked about that I'm personally excited for, along with a link to their Goodreads page!

Why I'm Excited: I've heard brilliant things about this one, and the premise (while it sounds like a similar concept to Everything, Everything) is intriguing. I wouldn't be surprised if it made me cry. I also just love the cover.

Why I'm Excited: Why are you not excited?

And now onto the part where Mary E. Pearson (yes, that Mary E. Pearson) came to talk to us.

Here's basically everything I can remember (I suck at this. Sorry.):
  • She's reading a secret book that she's really enjoying.
  • She loved Flashfall by Jenny Moyer (which comes out this fall).
  • She also really enjoyed The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia (another fall release).
  • She was inspired by Dr. Seuss, which she reckons is likely why she created a new language for The Kiss of Deception trilogy.
I hope you discovered some new books you're now excited for. Thanks again to everyone at Raincoast, Vanessa, and Jen for inviting me to the event and hosting it! I had a great time!
