Penguin Teen Social 2019 Recap!

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

On Thursday May 23, 2019, at 5:30pm, I attended the Penguin Teen Social, which is a YA event hosted by the amazing team at Penguin Teen Canada! This was my first time at the Penguin Random House Canada offices, and they were so beautiful (even the sign outside was gorgeous – see below)!

After I stepped off of the elevator, there was a long check-in line, that actually forced me to stand in the other side of the Penguin offices! In there, I believe I saw the real reception desk and shelves.

After I checked-in, I met up with my friend Amy (@readingwithamy – Instagram), and met Dayla (@daylafm – Instagram) and Mallory (@readwithmallory)! We were introduced to the entire Penguin Teen Canada team, as well as the guest authors!

From there, we had about two hours to mingle and chat with other local bloggers and authors! There were author signings every fifteen minutes and I got two books signed!

These are all of the books they were featuring at this years’ Penguin Teen Social!

They had TV screens in different corners of the room, which featured their Summer 2019 Line-Up, which obviously features some fantastic books! THESE WITCHES WON’T BURN and GIRL GONE VIRAL are two of my highly anticipated releases for this season, and I hope to get around to reading them once they release!

One of Penguins new campaigns for the second-half of 2019 is #Penguin10, a list featuring the top-10 books you need to read this fall! My most anticipated releases from this list are AMERICAN ROYALS, FRANKLY IN LOVE, and THE BABYSITTERS COVEN!

Right before the end of the event, I took a picture with Amy and the official Penguin of Penguin Random House Canada!

These were the four books I received at the Penguin Teen Social Event!

Thanks to Penguin Teen Canada (more specifically Sam Devotta – so lovely to meet you!) for inviting me to this amazing event! I had a fantastic time meeting everyone and chatting about books!

Good Night Book Owls!
