Hey everyone! So I’m really excited because this past Tuesday I got to go to an event at Trident Booksellers and Cafe here in Boston and see Brittany Cavallaro from the Charlotte Holmes series and Lance Rubin from the Denton Little series. They both participated in a Q&A about writing sequels and then did a signing. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Lance or Denton Little before the event but I really enjoyed him. The dynamic of him and Brittany for the Q&A was a lot of fun, they’re both really nice and humorous people.
I did only end up getting The Last of August by Brittany though. As you can see in the photo above, it’s signed “the game is afoot!” I just think this is really cool, especially because I saw Brittany at the end of last year at the Boston Teen Author Festival and got a copy of A Study in Charlotte signed. Below is just kind of some bookmark swag I got as well as a schedule for further Trident YA events for those of you who live close—they’re doing a YA passport series this year actually and have an author event every month.
From the list, I’m excited to see Kim Savage, Lauren Oliver, and Adam Silvera even though I haven’t read any of their books yet. And then Emery Lord, who I met at the Boston Teen Author Fest and who I’ve read a couple books by.
Lastly, I plan on attending another event next week at Brookline Booksmith, which is actually right down the street from my apartment. V.E. Schwab and Susan Dennard from Truthwitch are going to be there. I own Truthwitch but I haven’t read it yet and I’ve gotten to nothing of Schwab’s—even though I’ve heard only good things—but I still plan on stopping by and picking up some of their books.
