Raincoast Books Teen Reads Winter Preview
Oh hello there. Remember me? It’s been a little while, and honestly, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be back. But the wonderful people at Raincoast Books have inspired me to give blogging another go.
This morning I attended the Teen Reads Winter Preview event hosted by Raincoast. I was a bit hesitant about attending, seeing as my blogging this year has pretty much been, well, non-existant. But I was lured by the promise of caffeine and breakfast and maybe a few books.
The lovely ladies at Raincoast took us through some highlights of their Fall books and then delved into what’s coming up this Winter with a sneak peak at a few Spring titles. It was so great to spend the morning chatting about books, swapping book recommendations, and hearing what upcoming books people are excited about.
And, of course, they sent us home loaded down with books and other goodies
Crewel by Gennifer Albin (signed)
Altered by Gennifer Albin
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
Before My Eyes by Caroline Bock
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason
16 Things I Thought Were True by Janet Gurtler
A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris
Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally
Nil by Lynne Matson
Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
Plus a couple totes, notebook, and a fancy personalized bookmark. On top of that, I won a signed copy of Eleanor & Park.
Of the stack I came home with, I’m probably most looking forward to Fangirl (while I didn’t love Eleanor & Park, I really liked Rainbow Rowell’s writing and have been wanting to read more of her stuff), A Tale of Two Centuries (time travel love story? yes please), and 16 Things I Thought Were True (just looks super cute). But The Winner’s Curse and The Clockwork Scarab also look really interesting, as do Nil, Before My Eyes, and Strange Sweet Song. Really, I just want to read all of them right now and I don’t know where to start.
These are some other titles I’m looking forward to that were talked about:
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Something Real by Heather Demetrios
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
Going Over by Beth Kephart
Thank you so much, Raincoast!
So anyway, yes, I’m hoping you’ll see me a little more frequently around these parts. I most likely (definitely) won’t be doing individual reviews for every book I read (at least to start), but I would like to at least do a round up post every month of what I’ve read.
See you soon!
