My month in books – September

What’s happened in September?

I met other bloggers IN REAL LIFE! Because that wasn’t intimidating at all…..

On September 12th I went to the Book Blogger Bonanza hosted by Waterstones in Birmingham. This was a bit of a blogger get-together but there was also a panel of book bloggers and vloggers which included Chelley Toy from Tales of Yesterday, Mariam from Hello I am Mariam, author Lauren James and chaired by vlogger Lee Farnell. It was an interesting discussion on blogging, techniques, schedules, allsorts really.

There were loads of book giveaways; seriously they were just giving away box after box of books, a raffle and an opportunity to mingle if you wished. It was great to meet and chat with Holly from Bookaholic Confessions and Dominique from Playing Parent.

It was predominantly YA focused and had I known I probably wouldn’t have gone but it was still a very enjoyable evening nonetheless. It would be great if Waterstones would host a similar event but with a variety of genres.
