My first bookish event! |The story of how I fangirled so hard my face hurt from smiling

first book event

Believe it or not my friends, I hadn’t been to any sort of bookish event before now. Β Here in the UK, it’s rare for people to come to my city…which is quite surprising actually, considering I live in one of the largest cities. But, with my inability to travel elsewhere, I just hadn’t been to any kind of bookish event.

Until now. And ohhh I started with a good one. Because Samantha Shannon – one of my FAVOURITE authors – came to do a book signing/”evening with” event. And when I found out, I genuinely squealed. I was at my friends house and just shouted at her “OHMYGOSHWECANGOWECANGOI’LLGETTHETICKETSTOMORROWWE’REGOING.”

And so this has been planned for over a month.

A Nerve-Wracking Cover Reveal: The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

Sog rising cover reveal

“Why nerve-wracking?” I hear you ask.

Well, when Samantha Shannon revealed the cover reveal was on it’s way, she also mentioned that THE SERIES DESIGN HAD BEEN CHANGED.

And we all know that while it’s the inside of a book that counts, we bookworms like our series covers to be matching.

And considering this is one of my favourite series, and I already have the first two books in the original covers…oooohhhh I was nervous.

But it’s here, so let’s see …

The Wonderful People I Will Keep Throwing Money At For Their Books… My Auto-Buy Authors!

auto buy authors

I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.

The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.

Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.

But then I realized…there are a few.

Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:

– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next

Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.

– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying

I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.

So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!
