Faber and Faber Blogger Event

Last Saturday turned into such a brilliant day, in no small part due to my unexpected but wonderful visit to Faber and Faber.
Thank you @daydreamin_star & @AitchLove

Faber and Faber published two of my favourite books from 2013, The Bone Dragon by Alexia Casale and Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll so I was pretty excited to see what 2014 will bring.

Emma Carroll’s next book for one. The Girl Who Walked On Air, oh I’m in love with it already.

IMPORTANT: The paperback of The Bone Dragon is out in February, if I haven’t convinced you by now that you need to read it let me tell you again:
You NEED to read it.

Faber and Faber win the best cupcake award.

I was lucky to meet Natasha Farrant and Jeff Norton, both of them had us in stitches during their readings.

And we got given a copy of Flora in Love (The second in the Diaries of Bluebell Gadsby stories) *happy* I loved the first book. (Review coming soon)

Now then, I will admit that Memoirs Of A Neurotic Zombie did not strike me as my kind of thing BUT once Jeff Norton read the prologue I knew better. I really want to read Neurotic Zombie but I want Jeff Norton to read it even more – please can there being an audio-book? You might actually convert me to them.

As if all of the above wasn’t enough I also came home with a copy of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, which I know has had a lot of great reviews.

Other books that caught my eye were; Sweet Damage by Rebecca James & Dead Ends by Erin Lange.

  1. I had exactly the same reaction to Memoirs Of A Neurotic Zombie – I was sold by Jeff’s reading. Now I REALLY want it.

    I’m pretty sure Dead Ends is going to be awesome, great write up 🙂
