[ARC August] – 2017 Sign Up

ARC August is the yearly read-a-thon where you try to tackle as many advance readers copies as possible during August. The event is hosted by Octavia and Shelly (at) Read, Sleep, Repeat.

Initial Thoughts:

Praise be that I have the opportunity of reading several highly anticipated Fall 2017 releases. There is no rhythm or rhyme as to what I will read but I do have more favourable choices in the lot.

As always here are the rules:

    • Any Advanced Reading Copy counts as part of this reading challenge; your backlist books count
    • No blog necessary to participate, but you’ll need to include some form of social media as part of your sign up
    • Use the #ARCAugust on social media to check-in

Twitter Chat

  • We will be hosting TWO twitter chats one on August 7th and one August 28th. Both chats will start at 8pm EST and of course we’ll be using our #ARCAugust tag.

[Book Events] Thomas Allen & Son: Spring 2017 Preview


Thomas Allen & Son:
(Spring 2017 Preview)

On March 4, 2017, I co-hosted a blogger hangout day with other members of the book community within the Greater Toronto Area. It was super chill and a low key event to do two things: (1) get posts scheduled and (2) have Ambur (Burning Impossibly Bright), who works at Thomas Allen & Son, showcase titles they were excited for in the upcoming season.

So thank you to Thomas Allen for sponsoring this event and allowing me to assist with co-hosting (which is just my way of saying I did something without really doing much of anything).

[Book Events] HarperCollins Canada: Frenzy Presents (Spring 2017) + Book Haul


HarperCollins Canada: Frenzy Presents
(Spring 2017 Edition)

On February 26, 2017, I attended Frenzy Presents, a book preview event hosted by HarperCollins Canada. I was incredibly excited to be invited to this shindig as I’ve previously only bore witness to this event on Twitter when many of my bookish friends attended in past seasons. So it’s nice to be on the inside instead of being on the outside looking in.

But before I proceed to word vomit on all the books, I must first extend thanks to the Suman and the team at HCC Frenzy for arranging an afternoon of frolicking over Goodreads and shelving all the books, spending time new/old friends in the community, and chat about all things bookish!

For more details and other thoughts from this event, peruse the Twitter hashtag #FrenzyPresents!
