Genie's Weekly News (52)

Sunday, 11 September 2016

It's the last day of the uni holidays, and I write this after coming home from a very busy day at work - no surprise since it's 'Harry Potter release day'! It of course doesn't have quite the hype of another book being released, but I'll be happy to see how it compares anyway.

ALL THE FEELS.  That is all.
Well, full review to come as well...

*Haul/Book Event Recaps*

It's been a very bookish week in general, with not one but two book events...and a TBR that has grown even larger in the meantime!

1. Hachette Christmas Roadshow

These publisher events are a great way to bring together booksellers, authors and those working to bring those stories into stores. It was great to see what new books will be coming up from Hachette for the rest of 2016 and 2017, plus those crime/thrillers in the goodie bag look especially intriguing!:
  • The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney (February 2017) - A psychological thriller with a house that holds secrets from the past.
  • Ragdoll by Daniel Cole (February 2017) - Gory crime, the first in a series.
  • See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt (April 2017) - A retelling of the Lizzie Borden murders.

2. Rachael Craw Skype Event

Although all Aussie fans of the SPARK series would love to meet Rachael in person, this Skype event at Dymocks and hosted by Emily @UncoverAllure  was the next best thing! It was great to hear her thoughts on the series, and us fans got to ask some burning questions about what's happened in the series. She also shared some details about her next book, and I'm hooked already!


  1. So many fantastic events Genie! That Spark event looked like it would've been so much fun, even seeing her through skype would have been entertaining. Great haul Genie! I went to the Hachette Road show too and I don't know if I'll read any of those books, I was so creeped out by the trailer.

  2. I wish I could have gone to the Spark event, it looked so good! Absolutely loved the books, definitely a personal favourite now. Sounds like you had a great week!
